Hydrate, Nourish and Glow with a Natural Self Tan

Glow By Beca

With her background in the beauty industry, Rebecca Hood wanted to create a product that allowed people to achieve a glowing and vibrant looking tan without baking in the sun and causing long-term skin damage. Her vision was to create a product that would nourish and hydrate skin while giving it a healthy glow. GlowByBeca is a 100% natural, Australian-made self tan and skin care in one. Rich in vitamins, their range contains rosehip oil, macadamia oil, aloe vera and shea butter to increase your skin’s hydration while providing a long-lasting tan. Here, Rebecca talks to The Natural Parent Magazine about the inspiration behind GlowByBeca and her business journey so far.

The passion: What inspired you to set up your business and how did you start out in the beginning?

My background is in the beauty industry and I have been self employed from the age of 18 offering a wide range of beauty services for over 10 years. I had a desire to specialise in one treatment and start my own product range and I personally tanned all the time and loved how it made me feel confident. I wanted to create a natural, Australian-made solution so that I could not only offer a range that helps you look good, but also encourage men and women to feel good within their skin and confident about what they are putting on it.

Becoming a mum one day was a huge inspiration to me as I knew years before that moment I needed to build something I could work around my family to allow me to be a hands-on mum and be there for my kids.

It was extremely hard to align with a manufacturing company based in Australia but once I found the right fit, we started to sample solutions and we worked together with blending ingredients until we found what worked!

The innovation: What was the biggest breakthrough for you with your business?

Over a period of 6 years I feel incredibly fortunate to have crossed paths and perform my line of work with TV shows, celebrities and high end fashion magazines, e.g. Vogue, Women’s Health and Fashion Weeks.

But one of the biggest breakthroughs would have to be tanning Sophie Monk on a consistent basis. I tanned her and Kelly Osbourne as a one-off for a show and then Sophie would personally contact me monthly, sometimes weekly, for tans over a period of 2 years. This was a major breakthrough on social media for GlowByBeca, incredible exposure leading to more business growth when GlowByBeca landed a major stockist: ChemistWorks.
