Sonya’s favourite beauty ingredient

Lemongrass for skin - it is a true hero when it comes to your beauty regime! That's why I love to use it in our Certified Organic range...

Lemongrass for Skin? What you need to know…

I’m addicted. If I see lemongrass on a menu, that’s my dish! A piece of Lemongrass in hot water and that’s my tea. And Lemongrass for skin? Well that’s my favourite ingredient in organic beauty products.

It is seriously the most exotic, refreshing, mind clearing, diverse herb you could ever find. The aroma is unique and the benefits from its oil are numerous.
That’s why I often included it in my products. When I’m braining storming for new products I’m always like “OHHHH what about Lemongrass!!!” Blah blah blah…  My team often smile and roll their eyes knowing what was coming.

Arm Yourself Against the Great Fire Ball

It’s possible to source sun protection that only uses all natural sunscreen ingredients! Prepare now to protect your skin from our harsh Aussie sun.

What you put ON your skin is just as important as what you put IN it. With so many sunscreens to choose from, and so many containing toxic chemicals, choosing the right one can be confusing.

Firstly, let’s discuss what exactly you are protecting yourself from in the first place?

Solar Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is invisible energy produced by the sun and made up of UVA, UVB and UVC. Most UVC is absorbed by the Ozone Layer as it hits. Unfortunately both UVA and UVB can penetrate that layer to reach the earth’s surface and damage human skin. Sunburn or even a suntan is a clear sign that your skin has been harmed by UVR! Every time this damage occurs will increase your risk of developing skin cancer.

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

DETOXIFY YOUR SPIRIT

Spiritual Detox

My Mental and Spiritual Detox Tips

Shutting my mind so my spirit can thrive

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not lacking in oodles of spirit! I move a mile a minute and my world is full on and exciting and full of beautiful people. Never once do I take any of it for granted, but every now and again, I catch myself caught up in a whirlwind. At this point, I know it’s time to stop and make sure I’m spiritually and emotionally in touch with my spirit and that it’s not being contaminated with toxic surroundings, situations, thoughts or people. This is my time for a mental and spiritual detox.

Our Natural Coconut Lip Balm – Small Batch Heroes!

Glory Lips, Eco Tan's jumbo size & vegan all natural coconut lip balm, are hand crafted locally in Australia using only organic and natural ingredients!

Our very own natural coconut lip balm

Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver, shares her story of how Glory Lips, the natural coconut lip balm in the Eco By Sonya Driver range, was created…

When I first started Eco Tan I would stand in my kitchen with my formulation book (exercise book from Kmart) and measure organic ingredients from my lab equipment bought from eBay.

I knew my little batches were as pure as I could possibly make them. The problem was that no one knew about them. Luckily, I have a little hustle in me and my persistence and nagging paid off.

I know there are other incredible products, cosmetic, food, etc out there that we don’t hear about. It is one of my passions to find the gold and give it life!

It’s Winter on the Gold Coast and My Skin Hates it!

Winter Skin Care with Eco Tan

Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver, shares her Winter Skin Care tips…

I thrive in the sunshine and worshipped the sun growing up (we all know how that turned out) and even though I am so grateful to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – even the Gold Coast gets cold in Winter and my skin hates it!

Last week I walked into the bathroom and caught my husband doing the unthinkable in the shower…… that’s right, exfoliating his dry itchy skin with our organic Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. I wondered why I was running out all the time! This product is seriously a must have. It’s a deep exfoliator with beautiful coconut oil and shea butter it creates a perfect drenching. This product is number 1 in my household, we all fight over it.

DON’T BE FOOLED WITH FAKE-GANICS

Eco Tan's Organic Spray Tan Solutions use only natural & organic ingredients, Certified by the OFC to create beautiful, professional spray tan solutions.

In our recent experiences, people or brands claim to have “organic spray tan solutions” – this frustrates us beyond belief!!

This is, we think, one of our most important blogs to date…

Last night, we got an email from one of our new spray tanners. She was so shocked at the difference in ingredients between our organic spray tan solutions and other company’s “organic” spray tan solutions. It is SO frustrating how many other brands and business out there claim to be “organic” – when really their products are filled with toxic chemicals and potential carcinogens!

We pride ourselves on being an authentic and transparent company. When we say our organic spray tans don’t contain artificial dyes, harsh chemicals or toxic ingredients – we mean this. They really DON’T contain that nasty crap! We also aim to educate our consumers to “look deeper” – to be aware, research ingredients and products so they know exactly what they are putting on their skin.
