Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

Sonya Driver, Eco Tan Founder unites with Bec, founder of local Gold Coast business, A Life To Live, to spread organic awareness!

Gold Coast mums unite to spread organic awareness and convince more of the population to re-visit organics.

No longer just a passing hippy fad, the organic movement is here to stay. Organic foods are simply foods without multiple toxic sprays. As demand continues to grow for organic options, the more affordable it’s becoming.

Sonya Driver, Founder of Gold Coast based global business, Eco Tan, recently paid a visit to local business owner, Bec from ‘A Life to Live’. A Life to Live are located in Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast and deliver organic food boxes to your home. As we celebrate Organic Awareness this month, Sonya wanted to gather organic tips and knowledge to share with her eco-aware audience.

The NATURAL way to keep pests at bay!

Our Organic Personal Outdoor Spray is not only made with all natural and organic ingredients, but it can be used on skin and it really WORKS to keep the bugs away and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors!

More than just plugging our organic natural pest solution we also want to educate you on the toxic perils of more traditional sprays, DEET in particular.

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.

What you need to know about our Natural Deo

Our organic deodorant creates a pleasant coconut scent & naturally allows your body to release toxins, whilst keeping you dry. Aluminium free!

An organic deodorant that actually works!

I honestly couldn’t find a natural or organic deodorant that worked for me… They were either too slimy or too hippy smelling for my taste.

As a runner, I really wanted one that kept me smelling fresh, while I ran with my running group. I wanted a natural alternative that would actually work for me! I also didn’t want my teen daughters to start off with an anti perspirant loaded with gland blocking aluminium.

There’s nothing fake about our tan!

Fake it, don't bake it with the Eco Tan's best natural self tan Australia. We pride ourselves on our organic ingredients & beautiful natural bronze tans

Fake it, Don’t bake it… with Eco Tan’s organic spray tan solution!

Our organic spray tan solution is beautifully made with only organic and natural ingredients. Definitely no toxic chemicals, artificial colourants or synthetic orange or green dyes… Want to know why? We’ll tell you why!

We’ve all seen it before – some poor girl leaving the salon doing her best to hide the fact she looks like an oompa loompa… Unfortunately, a lot of spray tan solutions use orange as a dye to give that ‘tanned’ look, but we have all seen it go wrong so many times before. Worse still, to counteract the orange dye, most solutions also contain a green dye as well! What’s worse than waking up looking like Shrek?

Coconut Deodorant – Is it a Smart Move?

Our organic deodorant creates a pleasant coconut scent & naturally allows your body to release toxins, whilst keeping you dry. Aluminium free!

Why would a tanning company make an organic Coconut Deodorant?

I know, I can’t help myself. If I can’t find an organic product that works, my mind just won’t shut down. My yoga friends tell me its my chattering monkey that tells me just make it! We have a few different products up our sleeves that might surprise some people and in the mix is the organic Coconut Deodorant!

Our unisex, organic Coconut Deodorant is BRILLIANT! It isn’t an anti perspirant that blocks your sweat gland with aluminium. It is vital that we let the natural toxins release from our body. We have all heard that antiperspirants are “linked”to Breast cancer.
