Organic Skin, Body, Haircare from Byron Bay Australia

If I could afford to, I could easily find myself living by the beach, in the holistic health heartland of Australia, Byron Bay. It's telling that anything written about Byron Bay commonly uses the terms "healing" or "art" in the first sentence! Or, since we've just hit April, "music" because Byron Bay is home to Bluesfest. A blues and roots juggernaut that has featured the masterful Ben Harper many, many years in a row.He's back for 2015 with the Innocent Criminals. Check out the lineup and more at the Bluesfest site.

However, I don't live in a shack off the beach, meditating, doing yoga and getting Balinese massages...unfortunately. In the spirit of Byron Bay though, I am embracing a Byron-based spa and wellbeing range that is

  • organic, 
  • vegan, 
  • no nasties, 
  • no animal testing and 
  • absolutely divine to look at, use and gift. 

Sanctum started up in 1992 with the aim of producing skin, hair and bodycare products that really work, without the use of commonly used, easy-to-manufacture chemicals. Instead, Sanctum is based on plant extracts, essential oils and vitamins with natural and active chemistry proven to get results.
Sanctum is Certified Organic, which means their products contain over 70% Certified Organic ingredients and many of them are 95% Certified Organic through Organic Food Chain Australia and USDA certification.
You can find them via local stockists or order online (free delivery for orders over $50).
I'm loving the Gentle Face Exfoliant, Energising Eye Gel (sooo fab, need a lifetime supply!) and Hy C Intensive Repair Cream. In the Australian sun, vitamin C and antioxidants are a must.
