Face Compost SOLD OUT first week.

Face Compost SOLD OUT first week. It’s a vulnerable thing to create and offer a product in the market. I know I suffered from insomnia before the launch (a bit edgy too, apologies to the folk I live with) there is always a little bit of doubt whether people will love it as much as you do.

So when we SOLD OUT in the first week, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

Bloody grateful woman right here. I gave a few Face Compost Masks to a couple of tough critics in my life. When they came back with feedback like this, I knew it was a Divine appointment, assignment, creation! Face Compost SOLD OUT first week.

Certified Organic Glory Oil – Restore your skin to its true glory!

Certified Organic Glory Oil – Restore your skin to its true glory!

GLORY, GLORY HALLELUJAH –  new super seed Certified Organic Glory Oil sent from heaven!

So in May of 2017 I had a large basil cell carcinoma (skin cancer) cut from my face. I underestimated the trauma that it left both physically and emotionally.

Not only did I have to face getting older, fatter etc but with a huge raised scar in the middle of my face really shook my confidence. I felt so sad for myself. Not because of vanity just because I looked, well, not like me.

I called up my female cosmetic chemist and asked her to make me something that would give me the best shot at healing. My brief. Must be certified organic (of course) healing and non-greasy. I want a miracle oil! My Beautiful chemist herself had a melanoma cut from her arm recently and we were in the same boat. She actually had a worse time than me.

Certified Organic Glory Oil  was born! I’m not making this up, people close to me have been asking me what I use on my skin as it looks gorgeous. Maybe they are trying to make me feel better I don’t know, it’s working anyway.

Face Compost Mask | Organic Superpower – Eco By Sonya Driver

organic face mask, superpower for you skin

Face Compost Mask | Organic Superpower for your face.

My mother is a natural beauty. Gentle in nature and strikingly elegant in looks. My earliest memories of ANY beauty products as a child was of my mum wearing a face mask once a week as she did the ironing, (ironing sucks, I don’t do it)!

I have had the exact face mask I wanted to make in my brain for years and years. I wanted to put ingredients in this mask that actually do something and have a specific purpose.

This mask is TRULY unique. I have had the name Face Compost for years as that was what I wanted it to be based on. Super organic greens, seeds, oils all the stinky chunky good stuff!

No toxic perfume to cover up the spinach, chlorella, spirulina smell. This mask is PACKED with skin benefits. White clay is the best out of the clays for all skin types. It is a great detoxifier and the Chia Seeds and Acai work their magic and clean out the pores. SERIOUSLY, Face Compost leaves your skin feeling deeply nourished. One of my GF’s said “Son, I feel like I’ve had a facial. This is brilliant!”

It’s my weekly ritual.

So what is it going to do to your gorgeous skin?

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.

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

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.

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?
