The Oztan Story

Created by professionals for professionals

With over 30 years industry experience gained both nationally and internationally West Australian founder Simone Llewellyn had a very clear vision for Oztan:

“In 2006 when we were in the formulating phase, it was my intention to develop natural formulas using natural and organic ingredients without the use of unnecessary petro-chemicals and synthetic fragrances.

I wanted the tanning formula to be hydrating and nourishing to help tan longevity, contain no alcohol (so no lizard like patchiness) and most importantly the colour had to be as authentic as an Aussie Sun kissed tan.”

Oztan became the first to combine certified natural DHA, derived from plant sugars, with a nutrient rich blend of Australian indigenous ingredients and pure essential oils; Kakadu Plum healing Grass Lily and organic Macadamia Oil. The result, Oztan’s natural tanning formula is unsurpassed!

Why is it important to me to use natural and organic ingredients?

I’m one of those people with food and chemical allergies and sensitivities. Preservatives like sulphites in foods and other chemicals in perfume and synthetic fragrances can trigger an instant migraine.

I also had a Basal Cell Carcinoma removed from my forearm about 14 years ago that was a big wakeup call to the importance of being sun smart and faux tanning instead of baking.

My sensitivities combined with my experience as a beauty therapist and interest in natural and organic ingredients led me to formulating products that I could use myself. Most products contain synthetic perfumes and harsh preservatives, which rule them out for me.


Oztan Education

As a veteran in the beauty industry I am regularly asked to visit  beauty colleges to help the lecturers brush up on their skills in preparation for teaching their classes. It’s important to me to keep standards high and I love to share my knowledge with the younger generations just starting their careers.

Client preparation, application techniques, product knowledge, after care advice, equipment maintenance as well as tips for marketing and customer retention are key to flawless results that ensure happy returning loyal clients.

I have therefore developed the Oztan Online Education Program that is included with every Oztan Airbrush System that covers all of these topics and can be accessed from the comfort of your own home or salon.

In salon training can also be arranged in some areas.
