Earth Friendly Tanning Lotions
Hello Tanners! Today I thought we would discuss the many earth friendly products available to us. Many of the major lotion distributors have begun campaigns to do their part, making it a whole lot easier for us to do our part. So let’s just jump right into Mission Bronze Eco-Chic. You’re with me right?
Let’s take a moment to discuss why we want eco-friendly tanning lotions.
So, why do we want something Paraben-Free? Let’s begin by discussing what paraben’s are? Basically they are preservatives and they have been known to cause allergic reactions and rashes in sensitive skin types. They have also been linked to asthma and excema. The freakiest thing is that there are all sorts of studies going on trying to link them to breast cancer. However, please note the jury is still out on that one.
Natural products are produced with naturally derived ingredients. Not lab derived ingredients. Need I say more?
Organic: of, relating to, or derived from living matter
When considering organic ingredients in your skin care it is important to remember that skin is porous and absorbs whatever you put on it. If your products contain harmful ingredients then once it’s on you, it’s in you. Certainly worth considering.
Moving on… Why recycling is worth it – did you know that by recycling just 1 plastic bottle you can save between 100 to 1000 years in a landfill plus the emissions created in the production of new bottles? Cooler still, for every ton of plastic that is recycled we can save almost 2000 pounds of oil. So, why not?
Tanning Lotion Lines With Earth Friendly Options
Swedish Beauty was the first tanning lotion line to really make an eco-friendly effort and the results were honestly some of the most amazing products they have ever produced. They call their line, Botanica. The fun tag line – The Sexy Side of Green! Their natural approach to tanning introduced us to Paraben-Free, 95% Natural tanning lotions in recyclable bottles! I am including a list of their Botanica line. To get additional information on each product just click the name.

Last year, Australian Gold introduced us to their Naughty By Nature Line which consists of another eco-friendly tanning lotion line. Referred to as their OrTANic line these blends all include organic honey extracts, organic orange extract and organic sunflower extract. They are all loaded with vitamins and aloe, referred to as their Earth 2O formula, and are also all paraben-free. The bottles are 50% post consumer resin bottles made with recycled materials. Check these out:
So now that you are educated in the benefits and options available, you are now all set to be an environmentally friendly, Bronze Eco Chic. Keep in mind that these are not the options we have. Please feel free to search our site for other natural tanning lotions.
FUN FACT : Honey Face Facts, the facial lotion in Swedish Beauty’s botanical lines is among our top twenty best selling products. It is hypoallergenic and produces natural melanin. It also comes in their new airless tube which makes sure you every last drop of this amazing product. It should be used daily, not just when tanning.
