Glory Oil REVIEWS

“I have been using your oil for 2 months and I am very happy with the results. It feels wonderful to put on and smells so nice (which is a very important factor for me!). I have extremely dry skin which your oil certainly has soothed and moisturized. Farewell dry and itchy skin!” ~Dali

“Hi, I just wanted to say thanks so much for making your amazing Glory Oil. My husband is a paramedic and has been getting a bad rash on his hands from using so much hand sanitizer and harsh disinfectants at work. I started putting glory oil on his hands each night and it’s pretty much cleared up. He’s so relieved!” ~ Elise

 

why hand washing is better than hand sanitiser

We’re helping to the stop the spread and stay healthy. Proper hand washing is actually better than hand sanitiser here’s why….

So it’s time to get real. Washing your hands properly is the cheapest forms of infection control, and also one of the most effective as it reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. Hand sanitiser is only effective if your hands have no visible dirt on them.

Hand sanitisers dry out your hands with their harsh chemicals. Lucky for you our certified Organic Hand and Body washes are here to help.

We are Aussie made & plant based so plenty of stock right here. Guaranteed.

So increasing the amount of times you wash your hands is the key to staying healthy and stopping the spread. Let’s all do this.

This is not hard with our certified organic family of body and hand washes.

What you need to know about our CERTIFIED ORGANIC HAND & BODY WASHES.

  1. VEGAN. Means absolutely ZERO animal derivatives
  2. Only Organic & natural ingredients
  3. No Harsh chemicals
  4. Non-drying. They won’t strip your skin
  5. Our super power-packed ingredients such as aloe vera, peppermint, lemongrass, Grapefruit, Citrus

The idea of hand hygiene is not to kill the germs but to remove them from your hands. eg. before and after eating, after the bathroom, before & after food prep, cooking, before you touch your face, and don’t forget your steering wheel and other places you go… etc

Our Coconut Mint Hand & Body Wash and Organic Lemongrass Cleansing Foam are packed full of antibacterial ingredients such as Organic Aloe Vera, Lemongrass & peppermint which will help remove germs.

 

 

 

 

ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera is renowned for its medicinal qualities as it is packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins and antioxidants. The benefits of this plant are countless. Antibacterial and antimicrobial properties can protect the skin from bacteria to reduce acne. Anti-inflammatory and cooling properties help reduce redness and soothe sunburn. Natural healing properties have been shown to heal wounds, cuts, scars and even insect bites.

LEMONGRASS.

One of the major benefits of LEMONGRASS is its skin healing properties. This little beauty is antimicrobial which makes it great as a cleanser for all skin types and can help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. To keep it as simple as we can, Lemongrass for skin also has antiseptic and astringent properties, which helps to give your skin that beautiful, even glow.

PEPPERMINT OIL

Peppermint Oil has amazing antiseptic and antibacterial properties and naturally cleanses the skin. It also has a cooling effect which soothes irritation and inflammation due to skin irritations.

Right now, we can all do something about our own hygiene. Good hygiene is in your hands.

Get your hands wet, lather up, and keep lathering all the surfaces of your hands, particularly your finger tips and around your nails for at least 20 seconds, then rinse off.

Don’t forget to use a good organic hand cream as well to help restore and replenish moisture to your hands.

 

Face Tan Water | THE UNCOMPLICATED GLOW!

THE UNCOMPLICATED GLOW! Face Tan Water – It’s not complicated. It actually will make your life easier & save you time & cash.

Our Face Tan Water was the first and will always be the original. “Be an innovator, not an imitator”, I’ve always said. Created to fix a common issue that many found when self-tanning. Break-outs on your face! Traditional self–tans are clogging pores left, right and centre as the skin on your face is more sensitive and prone to congestion. And if you have oily skin then I feel for you.

 

There was nothing for the face, so I made it!

My idea; It needed to be a Certified Organic & non-comedogenic gradual self-tan, so it could suit everyone. It doesn’t clog your pores – goodbye breakouts! It could also double as a skincare product with active anti-acne and hydrating ingredients.

 

So, orange peel was chosen for its high concentration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that benefit the skin and is used to treat various types of skin problems including acne, oily skin, blackheads, blemishes and uneven skin tone. Rose Geranium also is known to create a balance between oily and dry skin by balancing the production of sebum. With known therapeutic abilities that can help calm irritated skin due to its astringent & antibiotic properties it had to be there too. Making it brilliant for problem skin.

 

Hello anti-ageing superpower hyaluronic Acid! This powerhouse helps to hydrate the skin and keep it moist and supple, it also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Such a multitasker!

Face Tan Water helps even your complexion & gives a sun-kissed glow.

 

Most importantly… it must be able to fit right in with an everyday simple skincare routine, hence a toner. So, Face Tan Water gradual self-tanning toner was born. It’s 5 years old this year. Happy Birthday favourite child. Love you lots x.

 

How hard can it be to apply a toner? It’s not hard at all. Trust me.

This is my routine. I get up, shower (I cleanse while in the shower to save time), then pour a teaspoon amount of Face Tan Water in my hands and rub it on my face & neck. Super Fruit Hydrator, then apply our oil-free natural sunscreen. Morning routine done.

 

At the end of the day Face Tan Water was made to make your life easier. Don’t overthink it.

 

It’s the one thing you can count on to always be by your side (or at least by your bathroom sink sitting pretty).

 

 

So what is Australian Clean Beauty, and what does it mean?

So, what is Australian Clean Beauty?

To me, it’s everything from ingredients, to packaging being zero waste to zero emissions and being carbon neutral.

Obviously, it means products are being made using only organic and natural ingredients, nothing synthetic or toxic. There is absolutely no harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances in our products just pure kind ingredients straight from mother nature and ethically sourced.

I get so frustrated when I see the so called ‘clean beauty’ out there – first ingredient water, last ingredient synthetic, preservatives, fillers, plastics, all that sort of stuff. I am a big believer in researching ingredients, you should know what you are putting on your skin.

Transparency is also important to me, as I feel there is a lot of greenwashing out there and consumers are being misled constantly, with false truths.

So, we don’t contain any synthetics, no GMOs, no animal testing and cruelty free. Also, we don’t sell products in areas that are going to test our products on animals.

So many people are ‘cruelty free’. They say they’re cruelty free yet they sell into territories who are going to test their products on animals!

So, I call bullshit people – bullshit!

Do your research!

I know everybody has a different idea of clean beauty. It’s a combination of everything. I believe it’s also how the company operates and the culture within the company. It’s all of the environmental factors.

In terms of our packaging, most of our packaging is now PCR (Post Consumer Recyclable) and the remaining is in conversion to. Which means we are packing our products in tubes and bottles, using recycled materials and sugar cane pulp.

Now I’m not saying we’re perfect, but we’re certainly trying our hardest to get on the way to being clean in every aspect for the earth and we’re moving forward in that direction.

Make sure kindness is your number one foundation. Kindness isn’t a weakness; it isn’t soft and fluffy… Kindness is having the guts to stand up for those who don’t have a voice for themselves.

Clean Beauty to me is:

STRENGTH

HONESTY

TRANSPARENCY

As I said we’re not claiming to be perfect but we’re really trying in all areas and if we find an area that we have fault in, we address it.

That’s what Australian Clean Beauty means to me.

Why you need to use an organic deodorant NOT an antiperspirant

Why you need to use an organic deodorant NOT an antiperspirant

 

18 km run in QLD heat.. Sonya was 46 when she started running.

 

She really wanted a deodorant that kept her smelling fresh, while she ran with her running group. She also didn’t want her teen daughters to start off with an antiperspirant loaded with gland blocking aluminium.

 

So, Sonya created our unisex global award-winning Coconut Deodorant without any toxic or aluminium ingredients. Guess what? The best part is that it actually works.

Read more

What’s the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant you ask? 

Antiperspirant blocks the sweat glands so your body can’t release any toxins or sweat. Completely wrong for the health of your body!

 

Organic deodorants still allow your body to release toxins and sweat however ours cleverly keeps you dry with organic corn flower and masks the odour with a unique blend of coconut, chamomile and lavender. Aloe vera is also very calming and soothing to the skin, especially sensitive skin.

Jo, Sonya’s running buddy confirmed she smelt amazing after 18kms!

 

P.S. Her husband suffers from dermatitis under his arms and this is the only one he can use! That was a big tick for her!

 

 

 

 

 

You are either a toner user or not.

You are either a toner user or not. Toners are a little confusing and back in my day (geez, I sound old) they were normally alcohol based and would sting like crazy.

So here is the story behind our amazing organic Super Fruit Toner.

 

What it is?

It’s a combo of a toner and a Vitamin mist. You use it after cleansing by spraying it on the skin to hydrate and deliver a Vitamin system including Vitamin C. As the first ingredient is Aloe Vera it will calm and add a protection layer to the skins surface. The organic pineapple extract contains a fruit enzyme called Bromelain that is super effective at removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and imparting many benefits.

It’s incredibly hydrating for your skin and we all know that when your skin is well hydrated, it looks smooth and glowing and even reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Some people like to use it on a cotton pad to remove any remaining makeup or grime from the skin. Or simply spray directly onto the skin. It truly is up to you how you like to use it.

Read more

 

Who should use it?

Our organic Super Fruit Toner is suitable for all ages and skin types. As it only contains organic and natural ingredients it won’t strip or dry your skin out or change the PH. It offers an instant hydration burst. Use it throughout the day to refresh your skins moisture levels. It is also amazing at setting your make up.

 

What is impossible you ask?

You can’t stop at one spray!

 

Hot tip – Keep one in the fridge and on hot days a beautiful pineapple spritz will refresh your senses and your skins moisture levels. It’s honestly like a holiday in a bottle.

 

Don’t over think it. It’s amazing and you and your skin will love it!

Blessings, Sonya x

Pop Your Pimple Problems

 

 

Whether you’re working your way through your teens or have been paying your own bills for years, acne is something nearly all of us have struggled with at some point in our lives. It can be embarrassing. It can be self-esteem effecting. And it can be extremely common. Unfortunately, there are so many different factors which could spark acne that it can be hard to narrow down what specifically may be causing your problem skin. But we’re going to try and help you pop those pimple problems. (Please don’t pop your pimples though!)

All acne has one thing in common – a clogged pore. What exactly has caused the blockage and inflammation can be confusing. Blocked pores can be caused by a number of factors. It could be that your dead skin cells are building up. It could be that your sebum oil is thicker or goopier than usual. It could simply be that you’re producing too much oil. From here, acne-causing bacteria come to feast on the clogged pore. Your body tends to view this an infection, causing your body’s immune system to come to the rescue. And that’s how your pimple reared its ugly head.

Read more

 

Of course, there can be several reasons for your body’s complete overreaction to simple clogged pore. A change in hormones or hormonal contraception, certain medications, diet and even stress can all contribute to a flare up. However, it is important to note that it’s not greasy, sugary food or bad hygiene alone that causes acne. There can be a number of things to consider, but the way to stop the unpleasant cycle of acne flare ups is to try and prevent those pores from becoming clogged in the first place. And the best way to achieve this is with a targeted skincare regime, like our Clear Skin Pack.

         

First, wash away the excess oil, dirt and grime with an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-acne face wash like our Super Citrus Cleanser. Next, ensure you’ve removed any dead skin cells by exfoliating your skin. We recommend using our Super Acai Exfoliator, once a week, which harnesses the powerful antioxidant and brightening properties of Acai.

The most overlooked step is rehydrating your troubled complexion. While it can be tempting to skip moisturising your skin, drying out your complexion too much can lead to your skin overproducing sebum and creating a bigger acne issue to deal with. Using an oil free, antioxidant rich, non-comedogenic hydrator – such as our Super Fruit Hydrator – can help your skin balance out and keep your pores clog free.

The underrated skin hero in our Clear Skin Pack is our incredible Face Tan Water™. Non-comedogenic and high in antioxidants and specifically created to fight breakouts usually associated with other self-tanners, its anti-acne ingredients will help clear your skin and leave you with a beautiful, glowing and even complexion. Think of it like your secret Instagram filter to camouflage breakouts so you notice them less and feel more confident in your skin. That’s a yes from us!

PLUS we all like FREE things, so don’t forget our Clear Skin Pack includes our jumbo size handcrafted ALL NATURAL lip balm Glory Lips FREE. So now that your face is going to be gorgeous and glowing, your lips can too!

Our Clear Skin Pack is available now online.

As Blue As The Ocean And As Pretty As It Too!

 

 

 

As Blue As The Ocean And As Pretty As It Too!

By O. J. Siebel |

My first thoughts when I twisted open the lid of Eco By Sonya’s newest product ‘Eye Compost’. In fact, after using this little tub of blue power for the first time, I felt refreshed like I’d just been for a morning swim in the ocean. I have never had an eye or face lift, but I imagine this is what it would feel like; fresh, smooth, tight and bright.

You really know a product-creator cares, when they not only make an incredible product, but they think about the little details of how to apply such a product. The green jade stone is known for helping to increase circulation and therefore helping to decrease any puffiness.

So, what do you get when you combine Eco By Sonya Eye Compost + Jade stone applicator = a match made in heaven. The eyes are so delicate, especially mine, they water at even the hint of light and sting with most mascara’s, so to find an all natural organic product that I can apply with something else natural is such a God send for my tired puffy and sensitive eyes.

Read more

 

The tub may be small but it packs a punch in terms of how hydrating it is. The first few times I tried this I couldn’t quite get the portions right, mainly because it spreads so incredibly far, like unbelievably far! The amount I used got smaller and smaller each day and I somehow still had so much left over. So, take my advice, you need only dip the very tip of the Jade stone in to very sufficiently cover under the eyes.

Why so hydrating and amazing you ask? Two words, ‘Hyaluronic acid’. Sounds nasty, but it’s actually incredible! Being big into things “actually” being natural I ALWAYS do my research, especially when I’m going to put something on my face, or I see the words “acid”. Basically, in layman’s terms, it is a natural element found in our skin, it retains water, encourages skin cell renewal and contains antioxidants. Perfectly combined with other antioxidant rich ingredients like Kakadu plum, spirulina and vitamin C, it’s no surprise this product does what it says.

I’m not sure about you, but blue spirulina is far more appealing to me than green spirulina that I drink in the mornings, whilst holding my nose and then followed by a smoothie for a chaser, yes, I am wuss. But I will take this every morning because I know the benefits for me. The difference in applying Eye Compost is far from an unpleasant experience, yet with all the benefits sitting pretty and glowing underneath my eyes.

Do you ever walk past the mirror sometimes and double take when the light catches the bags under your eyes or you notice a few more laughter lines appearing more than normal? It can become a habit, especially being a woman in this day and age where we are bombarded with a million different products and services, for literally every single tiny part of our body. It would cost a fortune, let alone you would have about 3 different appointments every day if you were to actually get all of these products and services.

So, for me, I block all of that out and think about what I really want. It usually goes something like this, “I want to look like myself, natural, healthy, glowing and fresh”. If something aligns with that, I’m all over it! You’ve heard it said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, you wouldn’t clean a window but leave the windowsill’s dusty right? “If the eyes are the windows to your soul…draw the curtains and flood it with light, open the windows wide and let in fresh air and all things lovely and bright” – O.J.Siebel (yours truly)

And that is exactly how I see taking care of my body and being able to not worry about the personal things that can make me stop in front of the mirror a little too long for my likings. It truly has been so nice after applying Eye compost in the mornings to rarely even think about if I have puffy or dark eyes during the day, I’m covered!

3 weeks in to using Eye Compost and I really am not sure how I ever went without such a beautiful morning and night ritual. I truly value honesty, whether in people or products. I will also never promote a brand or product unless I truly loved it. So, it’s safe to say if Eco By Sonya makes a product, I’m going to try it! This one is up there in my top 3 favourites of Eco By Sonya’s many wondrous products! Bravo! Truly, Bravo!

Pining for Something New?

 

 

Let me tell you, when I discovered the goodness of fresh Pineapple it changed my life. Suddenly I had a tasty addition to my morning smoothie, a new mixer for my Friday night beverage and a delicious add-on in my fruit salad. But what really changed my life was discovering the incredible things it could do for my skin.

Organic Pineapple extract is a hugely underrated ingredient in certified organic skincare. Not only does it smell absolutely delicious, it also has an active enzyme called Bromelain, which helps exfoliate and promote healthy, shiny skin. So, when we started to get ready for the launch of our new Super Fruit Toner, you can imagine my excitement.

This refreshing, multi-active botanical vitamin A, B & C booster mist purifies, refines and tones to leave you with your healthiest skin ever. Packed with natural AHA’s, it will help to gently exfoliate, clear out pores and regenerate your complexion. It’s Certified Organic, vegan, cruelty free and non-comedogenic – this vitamin boosted toning mist will give you clearer, calmer skin, while brightening, balancing and hydrating.

Organic Pineapple extract and Kakadu Plum are two of the key ingredients in our Super Fruit Toner, giving your skin the breath of fresh air, it needs. These organic super fruits provide your skin with a boost of vitamins, in particular Vitamin C, which is known for being a skincare powerhouse. Vitamin C can assist in dramatically brightening and evening your skin tone and can also help to restore hydration and reduce the appearance of ageing. Kakadu Plum actually contains the world’s highest source of Vitamin C. With the addition of natural Hyaluronic Acid for extra moisture and organic Aloe Vera to help reduce inflammation, you can count on your skin being softer, clearer, brighter and smoother.

Best of all is the super simple application method. Just spritz onto your face morning and night after cleansing and let your skin soak up all of the goodness. We’d recommend using it together with our Super Citrus Cleanser, with its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and dose of natural AHAs work together with the Super Fruit Toner to ensure your complexion is feeling and looking better than ever.

Give your face a spritz, put your feet up and enjoy a tasty Pineapple smoothie knowing your skin is getting the nourishment it deserves. Whoever would have guessed that your best skin was only a spray away?
