It never fails to put a smile on our face, compliments come our way. We find ourselves walking taller. Confident. Happy. We look good. We feel good. Such is the power of this ever-evolving game changer.
Sailing home from holidaying in the Riviera, ordained with a golden, sun-kissed hue, Coco Chanel introduces tanned skin to haute couture. Catapulted overnight to the heights of prestigious society and onto the must-have list of the esteemed rich and famous, le tan, sashays through the doors of high fashion, forever banishing its ‘common’ identity stigma. The year was 1927.
Fast forward to 2018 and Cancer Council Australia wishes we didn’t view tanned silhouettes as a picture of good health and well being. They view it as ‘overexposed UV damaged’ skin. It is estimated that 1 in 13 males and 1 in 23 females will be diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer by their 85th birthday. Melanoma is the 4th most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and 10.4% of all new cancers diagnosed. I wonder what Coco would have thought about the sinister side of her accidental invention.
Thenews.com.au reports Australia is listed among the top 50 best beaches in the world. In the top 10 we have 2 of our beaches. Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays is listed at No. 2. Hyams Beach on the New South Wales south coast is No. 8. Lucky Bay on the south coast of Western Australia is a bit further down the rank at No. 18. Turquoise Bay in Western Australia is No. 29. Add to that the ability to enjoy our picturesque outdoors 365 days of the year, we literally are, in the words of Australian poet Dorothea Mackeller, a sunburnt country.
Vani-T sunless tan is a game changer. One that Coco and the Cancer Council would well approve of. Absolutely no sun required to achieve a just-off-the-beach sunkissed, enviable bronzed goddess glow, all year round, without ever having to step outdoors and expose our skin to damaging UV rays.
Certified organic, made from botanicals and citrus flora, Vani-T sunless tanning solutions are safe for the most sensitive skin. From my own salon experience, I have tested on extremely super sensitive skins, including eczema, and I am yet to have anyone react negatively. If you have a nut allergy, Vani-T’s FUSION is perfect. Its colour is derived from the plum and not the walnut.
Here at Geelong Organic Spray Tanning, I can proudly say “we don’t do orange” and Vani-T is free from all the nasties that cause skin and eye irritations, toxicity and those ingredients which are regarded as carcinogenic and poisonous such as:
The body is able to break down most things however parabens the body stores and fails to break down. Over time this build up can cause damage to our bodies.
No PEG’s or glycols
These guys are really deadly. They contain compounds which are carcinogenic and if used on the broken skin can cause irritation and systemic toxicity. Am so relieved these are not in Vani-T’s sunless tanners.
No sulfates or phthalates
Sulfates are detergents and irritants to the skin and eye and phthalates are used in plastics to increase their flexibility. Why you would add these to a cosmetic or tanning solution I have no clues and thank goodness are not in any of Vani-T’s products.
No DEA or TEA
These are products of ammonia causing skin irritation and dryness and has been linked with cancer.
No bismuth oxychloride
Aaahhh the chemical makeup closely resembles arsenic. Don’t think I need to say anything more!
Vani-T smells heavenly, has no awful after-tan odour and full of botanical oils, Vitamins A and E, Quandong, Australian Kadadu Plum, Aloe Vera, all hydrating and anti-aging ingredients that firm, tone and rejuvenate the skin.
There are 6 tanning solution colours which can be custom mixed according to your individual skin tone which will have everyone guessing as to whether or not you have had a spray tan or is that just your skin normally?
You can have your cake and eat it too. Vani-T saves you from sun damage by keeping you out of the sun and has everyone complimenting you on how well and healthy you look and want to know if you have just come back from a holiday. Please feel free to have lots of fun and create an enviable vacation story that will leave them wondering ☺
