Today we’re chatting with our first ever tanning founder!! It’s Jules Von Hep, a celebrity spray tanner who has glow’d up everyone from Kate Moss to Sienna Miller to Poppy Delevingne. Jules started Isle of Paradise just last year, bottling up his decade bronzing bodies of all sizes, shades and shapes with his super-smart colour-correcting formula that promises to bring the bronze without any dullness or orange-effect.
Isle of Paradise is a tanning brand for the millennial era with its vegan, cruelty-free and organic formulations, offered up in fun new textures (hello, tanning waters!) The Medium Self-Tanning Drops have already sold out at Sephora, and good news for Canadian listeners, the brand landed in Sephora stores this month—just in time for those last vacays down south.
But perhaps the biggest part of Isle Of Paradise’s fast success is the ethos behind the brand. Stemming from Jules himself, it’s all about body positivity and self-love, topics he explores as co-host of Wobble podcast, featuring guests like Bryony Gordon and Emma Guns. We also get to the heart of the body image matter in this episode, along with Jules’ no-fail tanning tips and a story of a celebrity tanning session gone so so wrong.
