This May, TanOrganic, the world’s first eco-certified tanning brand, is joining forces with Irish cancer charity, the National Breast Cancer Research Institute to help in the fight against breast cancer. For the whole month, €1 from every TanOrganic product sold on their website www.tanorganic.com will go to support the National Breast Cancer Research Institute research team at the Lambe Institute NUI Galway.
An advocate of supporting Irish Cancer Charities since the brand’s launch, TanOrganic founder, Noelle O’Connor said, “We all love a sunny glow during the summer but sunbathing and generally not protecting your skin from harmful UV rays does detrimental damage to your skin and overall health. I created TanOrganic as an alternative way to have a natural-looking tan without having to run the risk of exposing your skin to the sun. The colour in TanOrganic products is completely natural and created using caramel, giving you a completely natural golden colour that looks just like a suntan. I have worked with a number of Irish Cancer Charities previously but as our customer base is mainly females, I wanted to team up with the National Breast Cancer Research Institute for the month of May as breast cancer is the highest cause of death in middle-aged women in Ireland. Cancer remains a great global burden and research is at the centre of improvements in the outcome for patients.”
Speaking about the collaboration, Professor Michael Kerin Director of Research at the National Breast Cancer Research Institute said; “We are very grateful TanOrganic have chosen us as the beneficiary of their upcoming campaign. Breast cancer is a very common disease and our research centres on personalisation of treatment, molecular mechanisms to better target breast cancer cells, innovative ways to address earlier diagnosis to improve treatments and outcomes for patients. Our research programme is hugely dependent on volunteers and support from the community at large and we are humbled that TanOrganic are supporting us.”
TanOrganic has filled a gap in the market for an organic tanning product as an alternative to the chemical-laden products on the market which would still allow women to have a natural, gorgeous tan but in a way that wouldn’t damage their skin or their health.
