May 2017 – Sun Evolutions, Heartland Tan and Eye Pro teamed up in April to raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society to prevent 9,000 dogs and cats from being killed daily in shelters.

“Heartland Tan was honored to exclusively offer this deal to benefit Best Friends”, said Abby Henson Gallagher, Heartland Tanning Director of Marketing.  “Our team is completely behind this cause and our customers loved it!”

“Sun Evolutions is a sponsor of Best Friends, and we were delighted to team up with industry leaders, Eye Pro and Heartland. We want to thank all the salons that enthusiastically supported us by buying this deal!”, exclaimed Maggie Curran, Vice President of Sun Evolutions.

“Wow!  I can’t believe we raised $2,350 to help find forever homes for pets nationwide!  Thanks to the salons, Heartland, and Sun Evolutions who all made this promotion a raving success!”, said Brenda Fishbaugh, President of Eye Pro.

Join EYE PRO in Raising Awareness and Support of Kenyan Women

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

Kenyan WomanJune 2015 – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in eyewear and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, WINK-EASE Dark and the NEW Lash Room WINK-EASE, has purchased fifty beaded bracelets made by Kenyan women and will be giving them away to tanning salon owners during several Facebook promotions.

“We just came back from our sixth trip to Africa,” said Brenda Fishbaugh, EYE PRO president. “We met with the staff of the Northern Rangelands Trust while in Kenya.  One of the biggest problems facing the rare rhino, elephants and other exotic animals is the lack of grasslands.  The large herds of goats, sheep, cattle and camels often decimate the limited grass and water supplies.  This organization provides Kenyan women with jobs.  The money from the sale of these beautiful bracelets goes to help the most needy of communities and decreases their dependence on livestock as their only source of income.”

Fishbaugh continues: “We were thrilled to support Northern Rangeland Trust’s efforts by purchasing 100 bracelets hand-made by the Kalama Women’s Group in the Samburu district of Northern Kenya.  We decided to share them with our tanning salon customers!”

SunWest Clear Eye Protection

July 1, 2013 – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in eyewear and makers of WINK-EASE, Viewkeepers, Fresh-Ease and Wink-Ease Dark, announces a teamed effort with Sunwest, Inc. to offer a clear, disposable eye protection for sunless spray tanning.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) updated its position on sunless spray tanning in June 2012.  The FDA highly recommends that all sunless spray clients should protect their lips, eyes and noses when sunless spray tanning.

“After 22 years of just making eye protection for the indoor suntanning industry, I can tell you that it’s critical you wear eye protection every time you tan, indoors or outdoors,” said EYE PRO president Brenda Fishbaugh. “The Sunless Clear eye protection provides a great option for salons and spas offering sunless spray tanning – for just pennies a pair!”
