About Us About the Founders of Samba Glow
Samba Glow was founded in 2009 by sisters Eliana and Viviane Jardim.
Originally from Brazil, Eliana and Viviane grew up on the country's beautiful beach, soaked by the year-round Brazilian Sun. Ever since their childhood, the sisters have shared a passion for beauty and fashion, ultimately building their family's cosmetic business.
Eliana has always been an entrepreneur. A graduate from an accredited US University, Eliana also earned her MBA. She has years of marketing and sales experience and never lost the passion to start her own business. With her younger sister, Viviane, by her side, the two set out to recapture the warmth and glow of their childhood beach experience in Brazil by opening a sunless tanning boutique.
Equally passionate about business, Viviane brings her creativity to Samba Glow. After graduating from Interior Design, Viviane's natural tendencies to create and capture the ambiance of the business shines through. She is excited to join forces with her sister, and shares Eliana's passion to bring a unique and safe solution to handheld airbrush tanning through organic and natural products. Viviane loves beauty and fashion, and is proud of her dedication as a wife and loving mother of two beautiful children.
Why We Founded Samba Glow
Eliana and Viviane wanted to recreate the sun-drenched tan they had as children. After they realized the damages from the sun and tanning beds, they became addicted to the sunless tanning method. Eliana and Viviane spent years trying to find a place that would please them in terms of the quality of products, and excellent service-service that extended beyond an initial visit. Unable to find a place that offered all of the concepts they felt important to a sunless tanning boutique, they decided to dedicate their professional purposes to creating such a place.
Samba Glow Boutique located in Menlo Park is a complete and tailored high-end boutique offering a healthy way to get the Brazilian Glow without the UV rays of the sun and tanning beds.
Both sisters are known for by being meticulous about their quality of work, always bringing new ideas and innovation to the business.
The mission of Samba Glow is to offer each person a consistent and personalized natural-looking spray tan and to utilize the world's finest quality natural and organic ingredients ensuring premium sunless experience and 100% guarantee customer satisfaction."
