Australian organic beauty specialist Eco By Sonya has added to its haul of prestigious industry awards – 15 in all to date.
This month the company picked up the award for Best Self Tanner in the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards for its certified organic Eco By Sonya Invisible Tan.
In December 2016 the Gold Coast-based company scoped best Natural Fake Tan in the Natural Health International Beauty Awards 2016.
Eco By Sonya was formed by Sonya Driver (pictured, top) after her sister developed a dangerous melanoma. Still wanting to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, she sought what she thought was the next best thing – spray tanning. But after researching the ingredients used by many different brands she took a decision to avoid spray tans entirely.
Driver threw herself into making a true organic tanning range made from chocolate, flower essence, chamomile and other natural and organic ingredients. In 2011, Eco Tan became the first tanning manufacturer to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australian government.
