Getting an instant tan is super easy nowadays considering the tons of products available in the market; however, not all are the same. Not all are safe and healthy to use. Based on experience, one of the most common nuisances in getting a fake tan is the chemical smell after application. I don’t know about you but for me, it’s really a turnoff.
Another turnoff for me is the orangey colour that some instant tan produce after application. A good instant tan should deliver a beautiful bronze colour that accentuates a woman’s beauty. This is why we love Aussie Bronze’s All Natural and Organic Instant Tan!
It is also free from toxins and DHA! It also washes off on your next shower so you need not worry about tan spots that are difficult to come off. Aussie Bronze believes that tanning is more than just adding colour to your skin. It’s the feeling of looking great and sexy starting from the outside, so you’ll have more confidence on the inside.
Sometimes if we want to feel confident on the inside, it is necessary to look and feel great on the outside. However, you certainly don’t need to compromise your health as well as the environment to achieve a beautiful golden bronze. It is our responsibility, after all, to look after our self and environment.
We’re glad and proud to share with you our interview with Aussie Bronze’s Founder, Sacha Roberts!
Tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a married mum of 2 teenagers and Lulu our boxer puppy. We live in Lake Macquarie, NSW and love the water and snow….anything active and outdoors. My passion is travelling and we love to eat, drink and wander through nooks and crannies of new places.
How long have you been in business?
I launched Aussie Bronze in March 2017 but started as bronze Bitch in November 2015 for a year then realised the name was a little edgy for mainstream and we’ve grown really quickly being Aussie Bronze.
When did your passion for this area begin?
I’ve always enjoyed making ‘stuff’ – tie-dying, batik, face & hair masks from eggs & beer
What was your initial inspiration to launch your business?
My daughter, Peri was using a supermarket brand of gradual tanner and I didn’t like the look of the ingredient list, so I told her I would make her one. I googled a recipe and ordered in the oils and colours and got a great result after a lot of trial and error with the measurements
What ingredients are used in your products and why do they give such effective results?
Our ingredients are all plant based including nourishing avocado & sunflower oil. Our natural colours are food grade. Aussie Bronze is a tinted moisturiser for the body. The beauty of Aussie Bronze is that it delivers instant results for busy people and washes off at the end of the day.
What is your background? Education, Work Experience etc.
I’ve been lucky and done lots of different jobs started in Travel, had a houseboat business, merchandising for a gift company, holiday house manager, sales director – Mary Kay Cosmetics, colour consultant & interior designer. My colour background and Mary Kay experience definitely helped with getting a perfect colour for our bronzer.
What sets natural skincare apart from the standard?
Natural skincare is so important as we are becoming more informed and have any information at our fingertips 24/7. Natural products deliver fantastic results and keep our bodies free of harmful toxins.
Do you have a personal favourite product from your range?
I love the luxurious full size in our beautiful box.
What is the most common mistake women make when it comes to taking care of their skin?
Actually, not bothering to have any routine or regularity with skincare.
What are your favourite eco- conscious ingredients to work with?
We only consider sustainable ingredients that are natural and plant-based. It’s never, ever tested on animals. I love our natural fragrance which is coconut and lime that we had made for us.
Can you share a beauty tip you think every woman should know?
Always know your ingredients and what you are putting on your skin. What you put on goes in!
Does your skincare cater to a specific skin type? E.g. sensitive, mature, oily, etc.
Aussie Bronze is suitable for all skin types and is great for sensitive skin. It’s perfect for an increasing number of women who are allergic to DHA. Our formula is great for pale to olive skin; the mineral formula adjusts to your skin’s natural tone.
Where are you located?
Online retailers and retail outlets.
Who works in the business with you?
I have a great team around me and feel so grateful for my wonderful sales team- Kylie, based locally, Rachel in the USA & Joanna in Dubai.
Is your packaging biodegradable? Or is there any way that purchasing your product will help the earth or our society in any extra way?
Our packaging is recyclable and we’re always looking for more sustainable packaging.
Can you tell us about a memorable moment you had while in business? Or an unusually funny moment?
I started the business calling is bronze Bitch and that always got a great reaction from everyone.
We adore your packaging and branding! Tell us what inspires your creative direction?
There is almost a romance when a woman opens a new product she wants or has heard about, so I kept that in mind when creating our look with the matte black and metallic rose gold box.
I also believe that natural and healthy products don’t need to look all bamboo-y and white.
Do you have any exciting new projects in the near future that you can share with us?
We are about to launch into the EU market and plan to do a trade show in London, early 2019.
Any plans ahead or new products you would like to share with us?
I am hoping to launch an exfoliating body wash early 2019 that will have the same beautiful coconut lime fragrance.
