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!
I picked up an all-natural coconut lip balm one day at a local beach shop….and I was instantly blown away….but I digress. Let me take you back a little….
I actually started a distribution company in NZ a few years back – on top of running Eco Tan AND trying to keep up with my girls (I’m exhausted just thinking about it!). Anyway, I would hand pick products I loved personally and I would organize a way to get them out to the masses. In my travels I still remember meeting the gentle spirited Anca, creator of Metta balms, at an organic trade show in Victoria. I instantly fell in love with her company’s values and her small batch of insanely divine products and I knew I needed to get her gorgeous balms into the hands of others.
Funnily enough around that same time I was also distributing a popular lip balm from the states… but let me tell you it doesn’t even get close to measuring up to our little Glory Lips.
Glory Lips are literally hand crafted especially for us. I found a brilliant woman who meticulously batches them (she has a Medical background) and asked her to make our Glory Lips bigger and better than the others ….and to make it vegan (of course). After many, many months of development – Glory Lips was born!
It’s the number 1 product that my daughters take to all their friends and in a nut shell Glory Lips is freakin divine! Made with organic mango butter, organic olive oil, vitamin E, organic coconut oil…. nothing artificial. This lip balm is seriously a must have and I never ever leave home without adding it to even my tiniest of handbags!!
We’re often asked why our stockists can’t purchase it and at this stage the truth is that it’s bloody expensive to create…. so the price would be really high. Good news though, it’s available exclusively on our website www.ecotan.com.au
Ps. Please let me know your thoughts! I would love to hear your feedback on what you think of Glory Lips!
