It all started about 7 years ago. Sonya Driver remembers the moment all too well. Her gentle spirited 30 year old sister was diagnosed with a melanoma. Sonya believed through the power of prayer and early diagnosis she caught it in time.
Still wanting a tan but without the potential risk from UV Sonya sought the next best thing and started having spray tans. She then became concerned about the ingredients we were constantly covering ourselves with. Sonya began to research the ingredients from many different brands regardless of their claims.
It only took her a few minutes to decide not to use their products anymore.
After thousands of hours researching and formulating Sonya put together a solution that she believe is not only beautiful it is also safe and free from all things nasty and artificial. The colours do not contain synthetic food colouring and are made from natural Cacao ( Chocolate), herbs, flower extract , fruit extract and chamomile from Mother Earth. Sonya uses certified organics and naturals in all of her formulas. She will not compromise quality or safety for the mighty dollar.
Sonya feels like she has now finally arrived through strength not of her own when on March 2011, her company made Australian history by becoming the first and only organic tan to be certified by the Organic Food Chain. The OFC is an Australian organic government approved certifier that is recognised internationally. Eco by Sonya where possible, uses veggie ink and recycled paper that are friendly to our environment.
It is the aim of Eco by Sonya to bring you a range of products that not only will you love but also have as little impact on Mother Nature as possible. In the wise words of Sonya's young daughter of 8 at the time, Charlotte.
