English Women’s Award

Tancream were absolutely delighted to be awarded Business of the Year by the English Women’s Award 2018. This inaugural awards ceremony for the North of England was held in Manchester on Monday 19th March. The same date the two founders Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft were travelling back from an exhibition in Italy. They sent Olivia Scott from Storyteller Marketing who does such a fantastic job on their social media posts to the awards evening not expecting to come away with an award! Katy told Olivia, don’t worry you won’t need to make a speech! How wrong she was. What a great accolade and gives Tancream a fabulous reward for all the hard work for the past few years! Hooray!

Best Business Award for Best Innovation!

Best Business Award for Best Innovation goes to … Tancream!

Hooray! That makes 3 wins, 1 runner-up and 3 shortlisted awards in our first year! Bring on 2018 …

One of the highest profile awards judged by acclaimed individuals, we were over the moon with the chairman’s’ comments on our product:

“Tancream Ltd’s eponymously named product is a ground-breaking innovation in sun cream protection that is highly deserving of this award. It is the first sun cream on the market that combines gradual self-tanning and protection up to 50 SPF.

Tancream not only creates a gorgeous sun-tanned look, it protects the skin against sun damage and ageing. While it may seem like a straightforward product, it was actually incredibly difficult to develop.

Congratulations to Tancream for its technological achievement and for creating a revolutionary sunscreen product aimed those who want to protect their skin and look good.”

Pure Beauty Silver Award!

The winners of the Pure Beauty Awards 2017 were announced at a glowing neon-glam themed ceremony hosted by radio DJ, author and presenter Gemma Cairney at The Savoy London on Thursday 26th October.
Yorkshire Mum’s & Entrepreneurs Gillian Robson & Katy Foxcroft scooped the Silver award for the Best New Suncare/Tanning Brand 2017 with Tancream which they launched in May this year following Gillian’s skin cancer diagnosis 5 years ago. Gillian was looking for a product that had the best sun protection but would also give her a safe Tan, only to find that there was nothing on the market that had everything in one bottle so she teamed up with her friend Katy and Sun cream industry experts and developed Tancream the World’s first ever SPF50, 5Star UVA sun protection with an instant bronzer and gradual self tan – all in one bottle.
The awards were a complete sell-out with over 350 industry guests from premium, mass and niche beauty brands and the UK’s leading UK beauty buyers, including Amazon, Boots, Harrods, QVC, The Perfume Shop and The Fragrance Shop.
A host of celebrities joined in with the night’s proceedings, The Saturdays’ Rochelle Humes and Samantha Faiers and Billie Faiers.
