Your skin is the largest organ in your body

You will be wearing your skin every day for the rest of your life.

If you are looking to optimise or improve your skin, then Tanya is here to help with some basic skincare steps that can make a big difference alongside her nutritional advice.

The key to skincare is consistency and routine. A basic regime of daily protection from excessive UV radiation, protection from excessive irritation and drying (by avoiding drying soaps, excess water or irritating chemicals such as parabens, petrochemicals and sulphates found in many skincare products) and aiding of the skin’s barrier properties (using a moisturising protective layer) will result in noticeable improvement in almost all skin.

  • Your skin operates as a barrier – protecting against dehydration as well as external factors such as physical and chemical injury and bugs, allergens, toxins and carcinogens.
  • Your skin helps with regulating your body temperature.
  • Your skin provides protection from UV radiation by producing melanin.
  • Your skin gives you the sense of touch, providing interaction with physical surroundings.
  • Your skin assists with the production of Vitamin D – UV light activates a Vitamin D precursor in your skin.
  • Your skin helps with wound healing.
  • Your skin is porous so it absorbs whatever you put on it.
  • Your skin plays a role in excretion – sweating eliminates excess water, salt, urea and ammonium.
  • Your skin promotes beauty and physical attraction – the quality and condition of the skin greatly contributes to the perception of health, wellness, youth and beauty.


Tanya uses and recommends Tropic Skincare And Weleda

“If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.”


In harmony with nature and the human being

Weleda is the original natural and organic health and wellbeing company, founded in 1921 in Switzerland, by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, Weleda UK was established shortly after in 1925.


Weleda is a natural skincare and medicine manufacturer and we are the leaders in quality natural, organic and holistic skin care, body care and natural medicines.


Weleda Values:


Consideration, love and respect for nature are paramount to Weleda and we take this responsibility seriously. This means, acting sustainably and actively caring for and conserving natural resources.

Fair, equitable treatment of customers, partners and suppliers

As well as taking care to conserve the environment Weleda also ensures the fair treatment of all employees, suppliers and partners.

Quality without compromise

Weleda is committed to keeping prices as low as possible, making them accessible to all whilst using premium quality ingredients.


All Weleda cosmetic products are certified natural and organic by NATRUE. 

The NATRUE Label sets a high standard when it comes to defining the naturalness of cosmetic products. It helps consumers identify Natural and Organic Cosmetics truly

worthy of that name.


Premium quality ingredients go into the products which are prepared to pharmaceutical standards and dermatologically tested.

A large proportion of our plants are grown biodynamically, which is beyond organic!

We have 15 acres of biodynamic gardens in Derbyshire where over 300 plant species are grown and are used in our natural medicines.

Many of the skin and body care ranges are produced in Germany, Switzerland or France, using plants grown to Weleda’s incredibly high standards, either from Weleda gardens or sourced from around the world.

They work with your skin, body and the environment, encouraging healthy balance

All ingredients are biodegradable so can be happily washed down the drain and packaging is recyclable.


We are individual.

Skin is influenced by AGE, HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT.

Our skin can therefore have many different skin phases as we move through our biography.

Because of this our skin needs different products at different times of our life.

Since we are also nature, Weleda makes use of the Lead Plant philosophy to show the skin, the path back to self regulation and healthy balance.


Since 1921 Weleda has pioneered the use of wild-crafted (from wild plants), organic and biodynamic farming principles in their natural personal care products wherever possible to promote harmony & health. Weleda’s personal care products are certified by the European organisation NATRUE which requires and enforces that no cosmetics be tested on animals.

I like Weleda’s belief that the closer you are to nature, the more your body works in harmony. Using the Weleda products on your skin, you experience a vitality that only nature can bring.

Weleda started off as a pharmaceutical laboratory with its own medicinal plant garden and today many of the ingredients still come from their own gardens – others are sourced from fair trade suppliers.
The founders set out to create holistically formulated pharmaceutical products that would enable the body to heal itself.. this is so in line with my work as a Naturopath which encourages and supports the body’s own self healing mechanisms.



We aim to be a force for good beyond beauty, and maintain our Infinite Purpose at the heart of everything we do at Tropic.


Each formulation is created in our own Innovation Lab, harnessing the best in green skincare science. For freshness, we make our products at Tropic HQ, so you can enjoy the active ingredients while they are most potent. Because they’re so fresh, each product has a best before date, so you know you’re getting the most out of your products.


Did you know that Tropic is also a certified CarbonNeutral® company?

From product deliveries, to powering our HQ, and even our team’s commutes to work, all of our carbon emissions are accounted for, and double offset.

Through this initiative, we’ve funded conservation work in the Amazonian rainforest and helped to protect 65,000 hectares of forest from unsustainable palm oil conversion in Indonesia.


Education empowers children, opening the way for them to access better jobs and higher incomes later in life.

Education should not be a privilege – it is a human right. That’s why we’re working with United World Schools to help make our dream of every child having access to education a reality.

Every Tropic order goes towards educating a child in Cambodia, Myanmar or Nepal, who otherwise would not have access to education, with every £50 spend* funding a day of education where it is needed most.

*Excludes delivery charges


We want to conserve our oceans and the marine life that lives there, which is why our entire spf sunscreen range is Protect Land + Sea certified, making it completely reef-safe.


Every one of our products is packed full of the freshest, most nutritious natural ingredients to nourish and transform your skin.

We pride ourselves on sustainably sourcing these powerful, natural ingredients from tropical destinations around the world such as Australia, Madagascar and Brazil.


Tropic has a very wide range of natural skincare products and personalised make-up palettes.

Plants and fruits are used in every product with all ingredients being sustainably sourced from the Amazon rainforest, Polynesia, Australia and many more exotic regions.

The product range is manufactured in the UK in their Surrey Beauty Kitchen. My favourite product is the Tropic Body Smooth Refreshing Polish.. an excellent exfoliator.. a pot of total luxury for your skin.
