We talk with the Co-Founders be­hind Aus­tralian sk­in­care brand, Bali Body about how to get that glow and what you can use to keep it mois­tur­ized.

We're in the thick of en­joy­ing the sun safely and for those that en­joy em­brac­ing the sun or look­ing like they have been out for awhile, we had to find out more about Bali Body, a ve­gan friendly com­pany from Aus­tralia. From sk­in­care to tanning, we talked with the Co-Founders to find out more about their line, its in­gre­di­ents and more.

ATH­LEISURE MAG: Laura and David tell us about your back­ground and how Bali Body came about?

DAVID OOSTERLOO: Bali Body was born in the tropics - Canggu, Bali. We wanted to cre­ate sun-care and sk­in­care that could be used on sen­si­tive skin, so we be­gan play­ing with for­mu­las and cre­ated our first prod­uct, our Tanning and Body Oil. Bali Body was born! I come from a back­ground in con­struc­tion.

LAURA FO­LEY: I was in In­sur­ance prior to start­ing the busi­ness. We had no prior ex­pe­ri­ence in run­ning a busi­ness, but we took ev­ery chal­lenge head on and never let any­thing stand in the way of our goals.

AM: What is the ethos of Bali Body and tell us a bit about the prod­uct of­fer­ings.

LF + DO: At Bali Body we are all about glow­ing skin. We are a ve­gan friendly com­pany, and use nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents as much as pos­si­ble when for­mu­lat­ing our prod­ucts. We have a range of nat­u­ral sun-care, in­clud­ing Tanning Oils, Sun­screens and Lip Balms. We also have a grow­ing range of skin-care, fea­tur­ing our best sell­ing prod­uct our BB Cream, Shim­mering Body Oil and Bronz­ing Lo­tion, just to name a few.

AM: Why is the brand named, Bali Body?

LF + DO: We started the brand while we were liv­ing in Bali on a ca­reer break. We love how the name sounds, and feel that it is the per­fect fit for our

brand and what we stand for.

AM: As a brand that is based in Aus­tralia - how does Aus­tralia in­flu­ence the prod­ucts?

LF + DO: The brand is based in Mel­bourne, and all our prod­ucts and pack­ag­ing are Aus­tralian made. Aus­tralia has an enor­mous in­flu­ence on our brand - the sum­mer days, beau­ti­ful beaches, bronzed skin and out­doors life­style is all an in­tri­cate part of our brand.

AM: As a Ve­gan friendly brand, what are the in­gre­di­ents that one can find within your prod­uct of­fer­ings?

LF + DO: We have a lot of dif­fer­ent in­gre­di­ents across our prod­uct range - but some of our key in­gre­di­ents which we find our­selves us­ing again are:

- co­conut oil

- grape seed oil

- jo­joba oil

- we use soy wax in­stead of beeswax - this makes prod­uct de­vel­op­ment much more dif­fi­cult but we strongly be­lieve in ve­gan friendly beauty prod­ucts.

AM: Are there ad­di­tional prod­ucts that are com­ing to mar­ket soon that we should keep an eye out for?

LF + DO: Yes most def­i­nitely! I can’t say much about what they are just yet - but they will be very pop­u­lar.

AM: Your sk­in­care brand tends to fo­cus on sun­care, will you in­cor­po­rate other cat­e­gories within your of­fer­ings?

LF + DO: Def­i­nitely, we have a grow­ing range of skin-care, and also have an­other cat­e­gory in the works which we are re­ally ex­cited about, stay tuned!

AM: Why do you of­fer tanning oils in ca­cao, pineap­ple and wa­ter­melon and why would one use one over the other?

LF + DO: We of­fer them in those vari­ants as they are each amaz­ing prod­ucts, and each in­di­vid­ual and much loved by our cus­tomers.

Choos­ing be­tween them can be per­sonal pref­er­ence, or peo­ple pre­fer cer­tain in­gre­di­ents over oth­ers. For ex­am­ple the Wa­ter­melon Tanning Oil gives the deep­est tan out of our range due to the pres­ence of Wa­ter­melon Seed Ex­tract - which nat­u­rally boosts melanin pro­duc­tion in the skin.

AM: We know that you aren't in your sum­mer sea­son in Aus­tralia, but how can we get great glow­ing skin by us­ing your tanning prod­ucts - walk us through the process?

LF + DO: Ap­ply one of our tanning oils (use and SPF prod­uct or ap­ply our sun­screen first for pro­tec­tion) then lay out in the sun - the com­bi­na­tion of nat­u­ral oils will have your skin glow­ing in no time! Af­ter tanning we rec­om­mend ap­ply­ing our Luxe Mois­tur­is­ing Lo­tion to keep your skin hy­drated through the night. For ex­tra deep hy­dra­tion, ap­ply our Tanning and Body Oil af­ter you shower.

AM: For those that may be darker skinned for our nat­u­ral brown beauties, what prod­ucts do you sug­gest that they can use to have an amaz­ing glow?

LF + DO: If you al­ready have a nat­u­ral tan or darker skin, for glow­ing skin with­out the sun-tanning we al­ways rec­om­mend our tanning and body oil - use it as a daily body oil for se­ri­ously smooth and hy­drated skin. Pair with our Co­conut Lip Balm and BB Cream also!

AM: Tell us about where we can find you guys go­ing out to stay fit (we just got a Hum­ming Puppy here in NYC which we know has its orig­i­nal lo­ca­tions in Syd-

ney and Mel­bourne), where do you shop and where can we catch you get­ting a bite and a cock­tail?

LF + DO: haha we know Hum­ming Puppy! But we usu­ally stay in shape by walk­ing our dog or go­ing to the gym. We get Uber Eats a lot as we are tired af­ter work haha - but we love the amaz­ing cafe cul­ture Mel­bourne has to of­fer, you will not find bet­ter food any­where else in the world!
