Natural Tanning and Skincare Products from Eco By Sonya
Sonya Driver founded Eco By Sonya to provide a safer and healthier alternative to traditional tanning sprays. She and her sister, who was diagnosed with cancerous melanoma which had been cut from her arm, wanted to get a tan without the risk of the harmful effects of UV rays so they opted for tanning sprays. After weeks of research, Sonya found out that these tanning products from big name brands contain harmful chemicals that are absorbed by our skin. Given her sister’s medical history, Sonya embarked on a quest for natural and organic tanning products, so Eco by Sonya was born. In 2011, Eco By Sonya was certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australia government.

For best results we recommend preparing your skin by shaving and exfoliating 24-48 hours prior to application of Eco by Sonya Cacao Firming Mousse . Apply evenly to clean dry skin in circular motions. Leave for an hour or more depending on desired results. Do not forget to wash your hands after application.
Why Baba Me loves Eco by Sonya:
Eco by Sonya is 100% organic.
All Eco by Sonya products are made using natural and organic ingredients like cacao, aloe vera, rose geranium oil and many more. They also contain pure essential oils, botanicals and other naturally derived tanning ingredients.
Most traditional tanning sprays and lotions contain a chemical derived from beet or cane sugar called dihydroxyacetone or DHA. Sunless tanning products containing DHA increases the risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease like asthma and even cancer. While studies have shown that DHA is not being absorbed by our skin, the huge risk for DHA getting into our bodies is through inhalation.
Choosing natural tanning products is the only way to get that golden bronze tan without subjecting yourself to harmful UV rays and chemicals like DHA. There are plenty of natural and organic sunless tanning solutions and Eco by Sonya is leading the charge.
Eco by Sonya is 100% cruelty free.
Eco by Sonya are ardent supporters of animal protection and none of their products contain ingredients that have been tested on animals. They are certified and licensed by animal protection advocates like PETA and Choose Cruelty Free.
While more and more companies are moving towards using cruelty-free ingredients in their products, there are still companies who test their ingredients on animals. There are many alternatives to animal testing like vitro testing and using computer models but these companies continue conducting tests on animals primarily due to budgetary reasons.
Eco by Sonya products come in eco-friendly packaging.
Eco by Sonya advocates environmental initiatives and it is reflected in their packaging. All their products come in recycled plastic and packed like recycled cardboard boxes, further reducing plastic waste. They have worked closely with factories run on solar energy in producing these packaging materials.
