The secret is in the ingredients. If I can teach you anything it would be to ALWAYS RESEARCH YOUR INGREDIENTS. Knowing what you put on your skin is so important! Glory Oil is a unique blend of certified organic super seed oils, which are brimming with amazing botanical bioactives to help soothe, calm and reinvigorate your skin.

 

Acne issues? One of the best things about our incredible Glory Oil is that it’s bursting with incredible Omega fatty acids. Nearly every single one of Glory Oil’s 7 ingredients is full of Omegas. Which means it’s anti-inflammatory, helps calm redness and soothe irritated skin. No wonder the reviews from acne suffers keep flooding in!

 

Mature sensitive skin? No problem! You may have heard how amazing Antioxidants are, but don’t necessarily what they do. Let me tell you, they are phenomenal! Antioxidants protect your skin by fighting free radicals, which can cause skin damage at a cellular level. They can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, prevent UV damage,  brighten your skin. Certified organic Acai Fruit Oil, Jojoba Oil and Grape Seed Oil are brimming with them.

 

Vitamins? Essential for all skin types! Glory Oil is packed with vitamins A, B, C and E, making it amazing for your skin. Vitamin A helps firm, smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Vitamin B helps to soothe dryness and  Vitamin C is an anti-aging and brightening powerhouse. Pumpkin Seed Oil and Chia Seed Oil are the unsung vitamin-packed heroes in Glory Oil. These ingredients are game changers!

 

Scars? Every ingredient inside our Certified Organic Glory Oil contains Vitamin E – and absolute hero for reducing the appearance of scars. It restores your skin at a cellular level and helps to strength your skin “barrier”, which helps reduce the impact of sun damage and other environmental factors. It’s anti-inflammatory, soothing and hydrating – it’s an ESSENTIAL in everyone’s skincare routine.

  

A few drops every night or mixed with our Super fruit Hydrator during the day and you have your glow on! It’s certified organic, soothing, calming, nourishing, non-greasy – Glory Oil is my HERO! You are going to LOVE it. Google the reviews, you will be be blown away by the beautiful stories of incredible transformations on children, mum’s, nan’s, pop’s and dad’s dehydrated skin. In fact it’s the gift we give to everyone. Netball coaches, teachers, birthdays, you name them we give it! Even my husband was on life saver duty and all the guys in his patrol were talking about it. This makes us so excited!

 

Glory Oil is a cult product Aussie product made for you. A radical skin changing oil, because luxury is in our nature!

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?

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 basal cell carcinoma 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.

I use glory oil on the back of my hands, chest, face throughout the week. I even pat it on top of my make up ( if I wear any) It gives a dewy feel without greasiness. It is liquid gold from heaven in my book.

The 3 main focus (angel) ingredients are Inca Inchi + Acai + Pumpkin Seed.

 

Inca Inchi seed – an ancient Peruvian omega abundant superseed oil high in antioxidants, the power of inca inchi oil is amazing; it helps protect from environmental stressors and nutrients help to even out the look of skin tone and the appearance of scarring and wrinkles. Assists in restoring moisture balance and to relieve dry, and irritated skin.

 

Acai Fruit Oil – Acai is another antioxidant powerhouse and helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors and reduces the appearance of ageing. Acai also has a lot of fatty acids that help the skin look tight, as well as vitamins and minerals; a key for protecting.

 

Pumpkin Seed Oil – Pumpkin seed oil (PSO) is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants, therefore it has tremendous benefits for the skin in terms of retaining moisture, fighting free radicals and maintaining a youthful appearance.

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.

 

“OMG Sonya, I feel like I have had a facial! I’m using this every week. Its freakin awesome” – Kerry

 

“What on earth is in it? This is the best face mask I have used and I have used plenty (beauty professional for 30 years) it evened out my skin colour. I need a bigger tube!” – Leigh

 

I am truly blessed. Can’t wait to hear what you think.

… and the reviews keep coming.

“My prayers have been answered, I have been waiting so long for an organic face mask just like this one! I am obsessed, even my boyfriend uses it when I’m not home.” – Emily Smith

 

“Just wanted to say thanks Sonya, you have done it again. I have just tried the beautiful new Skin Compost 7 Minute Mask. The ingredients you have used are certainly next level where science and certified organics join together to create the most healing/nourishing/cleansing face mask. (Very clever and very exciting). It was very easy to apply, I just did my face. 7 minutes later I was washing it off and could seriously feel the difference in my skin. It felt very soft and nourished and looked exceptionally clean. I noticed my pores looked smaller and my skin look shiny and smooth. Thanks Sonya, I can’t wait to try the rest of the range as soon as it is out.” – Mel

“I got this mask, the second it launched, and have used it three times since. My skin is acne prone but sensitive and I found this mask to somehow help with both. It’s nourished whilst detoxifying without being drying, harsh or irritating! I was surprised to love this as much as I do! So I thought I’d send some appreciation! Thank you for this product.” – Rachel

 

“As a man I don’t normally use face masks or any facial products, however my wife decided it would be a great idea for me to try Face Compost. I’m a surfer so I spend a lot of time in the sun and my skin is fairly dry. I found this mask instantly hydrated my skin and I will be using it weekly to keep up my fresh new look.” – Dan

 

“My skin is super  sensitive and usually reacts to most products. I tried Eco Tan’s New Face compost and the result was absolutely AMAZING! My skin is calm, clear and feels hydrated, It is the best result I have had from any skincare product I have used in the past.” – Sally

 

“This is my secret weapon against bumpy skin” – Millie

 

“My skin is so smooth and even better, my acne has calmed and become way less prominently red!” – Brigid

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?

Eco By Sonya Driver Face Compost®  is not just any face mask; it is a phenomenal luxe mask for all skin types that will bring your skin to its next level. Smoothing, anti-acne, anti-ageing & nourishing properties. It will brighten and draw out impurities leaving your skin hydrated and drenched in green goodness. Created to clear, smooth and feed.

7 Super Ingredients. 7 Superpowers. 7 minutes…. Next level skin care! Face Compost Mask | Organic Superpower

No GMO’s. No animal testing. Nothing!!! I mean nothing synthetic/ artificial. Auditing and strict transparency on every ingredient and process.

Yes, I could make cheaper natural products for you…. it’s not my calling to do that. Making money isn’t my love or the driving force. It’s creating the BEST incredible Aussie organic formulations. At the end of the day that’s all that matters when it comes to beauty products; the INGREDIENTS.

Get my green gunk on your face. X

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.

To be good at what I do…to be a good wife, mother and business leader, I practice what I preach! I try to practice self-care and I nurture my spirit every day in some way for an ongoing spiritual detox. Because I do, I then feel equipped to nurture the people around me. Trust me on this too…I pick those people VERY carefully.

So here are my top tips for a mental and spiritual detox:

1. Connect with animals and nature

Every day I go for a walk or run and I literally have to force myself to stop and ‘smell the roses’. Did you know that if you look hard enough inside every flower is another tiny flower ready to bloom? I force myself to stop and be ‘mindful’ (buzz word alert) every day and if I didn’t I would never stop moving.

2. Decontaminate my space

Every now and again ask yourself…who are the spirits hanging around me and I know it’s also a bit of a ‘buzz word’ at the moment, but if you haven’t heard of gaslighting PLEASE educate yourself! Gaslighters are manipulators that make you doubt yourself and as a result you can lose your healthy sense of identity and self-worth. Chances are you have at least one of these people in your life right now…CUT THEM LOOSE! I’m serious.

3. Shut off social media

Guilty as charged. I’m on social media a lot – usually on instagram letting my mind go wild with ideas, but even I recognise the importance of shutting off for a detox, and the rest of my family have to do it too. As I manifest the UFC wrestler inside me and wrangle the electronic devices from the hands of my girls I preach the importance of being in the moment without distractions. I shut my mind so my spirit can thrive.

4. Pray

Yes pray. Every single day I give it all over and I unload to a higher power. I am a big believer in taking nothing for granted. I am always grateful for the beauty in my life.

5. Love myself

I know I’m not perfect, and I’ve made mistakes in my life and trusted people I probably shouldn’t have, but most importantly I own it all. I am what I am and I love it all.

I believe we are all here to be the best version of ourselves. Nurture and feed your ‘spirit’. Furthermore, protect it from anything toxic and take a mental and spiritual detox when you need it! 

Shine on xx

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

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. Sonya wanted to gather easy organic tips and knowledge to share with her eco-aware audience for Organic Awareness Month.

GOLD COAST MUMS SPREADING ORGANIC AWARENESS

Sonya and Bec are both inspirational forerunners in health and organic products. They were also both single mums who worked hard to build their own futures. All while providing affordable alternatives for organic living.

Sonya started Eco Tan eight years ago with the first ever certified organic tanning product in Australia. She has since grown this little Gold Coast tan business into a global empire. Eco Tan now includes a large range of products including body care, natural sun care and soon to launch organic skin care.

A SHARED PASSION

When Sonya met Bec through a friend their shared passion and life journey created an immediate connection. Inspired by Bec’s simple concept of delivering fresh organic food to your doorstep, Sonya has been a loyal customer ever since. Bec is passionate about families changing the way they eat, and ditching all processed foods. Did you know that of the 8000 pesticides registered for use in Australian agriculture over 80 are banned in Europe?! It’s a frightening statistic. But when you can buy a large head of organic broccoli for only $2.05, now is clearly the time for people to re-consider organic eating.

SET FOR EXPANSION

Bec is in the midst of opening a chain of affordable toxic free organic fruit, vegetable and coffee stores across the Gold Coast. With her sights set on expanding to Sydney, there is no stopping super-woman Bec from spreading her organic awareness message far and wide.

Bravo to these passionate eco-crusaders. They continue to educate and create an eco-friendly and organically aware world…one broccoli at a time!

New girl in the Eco Tan family, Sarah, shares her experience starting a new job as a manager of the Marketing team at the Eco Tan HQ!

Eco Tan new girl, Sarah, shares her experience starting a new job as a manager

I’d been keeping my eye out for my next dream job and remember coming across a Marketing position at Eco Tan. I read through the job role requirements – nodding, nodding, nodding. I wrote my cover letter straight from the heart knowing I was a great fit. Starting a new job as a manager in the marketing department at Eco Tan?! Surely this was too good to be true…

The very next day I received a call from the one and only Sonya Driver who asked me all the standard questions in a hurry, and then she asks… ”Do you move fast?” and “Be honest, are you easy to get along with?”, and lastly, “Are you crazy, because I’ve known a lot of crazy Sarah’s in my time…” (insert wide-eyed emoji right here!)
