It's Ready, Steady, Glow now that Back2Tan is on the market!

You know that moment when you’re home alone and realise there’s no one to tan your back? 

Thanks to Back2Tan, our solo tanning troubles are over! A TY mini-company has this week launched the ultimate back tanner to help people tan all the hard-to-reach places on your back.

The product was the brainwave of a hard-working team: Éabha Shiel, the managing director, Zoe Brady, the finance manager, Kelley Higgins, the Marketing and Sales Manager and Alisha O’Connell, the Production and Quality Control Manager.

The product sets itself apart from the rest due to its competitive price, at just €6, reusability and high quality. Business principles of market research and innovative design were clearly used to create the perfect product.

“Our company Back2Tan has come up with a product that lets someone fake tan their back easily and efficiently. After many changes in design we finally came up with our finished product. Our product is a wooden rod with a removable tanning mitt on top for washing. The tanning mitt has a sponge filling so it is comfortable on your back,” the team explained.


G&G owner Aoibheann Walsh MUA officially launched Back2Tan on Monday the 26th of February at Loreto Letterkenny. Speaking at the event, Aoibheann commented on the affordability and long-lasting quality of the product, saying the girls are a credit to their school, fellow students and parents.

Friends, family and teachers came along to celebrate the occasion and build excitement for the launch locally.

Back2Tan tanners are available to purchase from McFadden’s Pharmacy in the Letterkenny Shopping Centre, Magees Pharmacy, Ruth’s Pharmacy and in Sculpt Cosmetics.
