Below you will find a list of the most commonly & frequently asked questions.
WHO IS ECO TAN & ECO BY SONYA DRIVER CERTIFIED BY?
Eco Tan & Eco by Sonya Driver are Certified by The Organic Food Chain (OFC) under the Australian government’s organic and bio dynamic standards. Australian certifiers have the highest and strictest standards in the world – allowing no GMO or synthetics through when certifying a product. They are also Certified Toxic Free by Safe Cosmetics Australia.
WHAT DOES ‘CERTIFIED ORGANIC’ MEAN?
To be certified by the OFC means that each product must contain a minimum of 70% Certified Organic ingredients and the rest must be natural. Certified Organic covers everything you would expect in an ethically produced product, including being free range, cruelty free, socially responsible and grown without genetic modifications, hormones, antibiotics, synthetic pesticides and herbicides. It also means that they undergo annual company audits to ensure compliance with the strict requirements of the OFC.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND JUST NATURAL?
The main difference is that Certified Organic products require at least 70% of the ingredients to be Certified Organic (as mentioned above) and the remaining ingredients must be natural. Anyone can claim to produce a natural product if even only one of their ingredients is natural. This can be misleading to the consumer and we always encourage people to do their own research before purchasing.

Of course! Please be aware that chlorine, other chemicals and heating usd in some swimming pools may decrease the life of your tan.
