So, for quite a while now I’ve been on the lookout for something that would grab my attention, get me excited, and that I could be passionate about and embrace as a little business of my own! It had to be something I believed in, something that complimented what I do here on my blog, all the while still leaving me with time for the blog and to look after my own health and wellbeing (regular exercise and self-care). For some time, I thought photography would be that ‘something’ but it turns out not to be the case (more about that in my updated About page).
I have found that ‘something’!!
I am a pioneer Area Distributor for WomanOil8 Australia who own the successful 100% natural range of skin care products – Gorgeous Woman, Gorgeous Girl and ManOil8 Skin Care.
The word ‘Gorgeous’ was a sign don’t you think, considering I started my Gorgeous 50’s series in July 2017?!
What is an Area Distributor?
As Area Distributor for Brisbane East – Wynnum Manly I can sell directly to shops/businesses/practitioners in my designated area. The products are also available to the public anywhere in Australia or overseas via my ONLINE SHOP.
We offer products to stockists at a wholesale price with a very generous markup. I am Area Distributor 2 (AD2) and my designated area is outlined in yellow in this MAP. If you own a business within this area and are interested in stocking these products, and/or would like to know more, please contact me.
Why am I so excited and passionate about the WomanOil8 Australia products?
To understand, you first need to know the WomanOil8 mantra:
“Beautiful skin is healthy skin”
A commitment and passion for providing top quality products in order to deliver on this mantra means that investment towards the production of these products goes primarily to the ingredients. These products are 100% absolutely natural quality botanical oils, vegan friendly and cruelty free, with NO chemical additives, fillers, toxins, mineral oils/petro-chemicals or any other nasties. The containers that the products are in are biodegradable and therefore kind to the environment. The unique blends are handcrafted in small batches locally here in Brisbane, Australia.
More reasons why I am excited and passionate about these products!
Reason 1. The co-founder of WomanOil8 and developer of these products, Anne McBride, has been working on them for over 14 years! In her own words:
My family all had sensitive fair skin and often suffered from the effects of the harsh Australian sun and the dehydrating effects of air conditioning. I was aware the products available to buy for sensitive skin were generally chemical concoctions with the occasional token natural Ingredient thrown in for good measure. One of my family was suffering from skin rashes, dry, inflamed skin and skin cancers. I was determined to produce natural, nourishing, anti-inflammatory oil formulations to feed, nourish and heal the skin. My journey had begun. After much research, testing, blending and mixing many different cold pressed plant oils and essential oils over a ten year period the end result was to create perfectly balanced oil products for skin and hair. Using the best quality botanical oils from Australia and around the world I created unique blends brimming full of vitamins, anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids that not only felt wonderful to use but were actually safe, anti-ageing and chemical free! We didn’t realise it then, but my passion and love of creating perfect blends of oils for family and friends would soon start to grow and develop into a successful skincare company
Anne (and WomanOil8 Australia) has been featured in various well known magazines (see below).
Reason 2. I have sensitive skin, dry skin, and am prone to getting psoriasis. 100% natural skin care products have always been of interest to me. My interest in oils was piqued when in June 2017 I had surgery which left me with some scars that I was keen to minimize. I tried an assortment of oils to help for this and found that many of them clogged my pores and felt a little too greasy. The WomanOil8 Australia products are not greasy nor do they clog your pores as I was finding was the case with many of the oils purchased from local pharmacies. If you wonder why this might be the case, you might like to have a look at this comparison of brands that WomanOil8 Australia conducted as a marketing exercise. The results are very interesting!
Reason 3. I have been using these products for approximately one month now and I am not exaggerating when I say, the positive effect on my skin from using them was instant. My skin feels incredible – soft, supple, glowing, healthy! I am excited at how much my skin will be improved after longer use. If you need more convincing at how fabulous these products are, have a read of recent customer reviews! My favourite times of the day now are mornings after my shower and evenings just before bed when I apply these products. They leave me feeling that good!
Reason 4. Our skin is the largest organ of our body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. Our skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. It’s vitally important that we look after our skin and consider carefully what we apply to it. It is very important to me that only natural products are used on my skin and the WomanOil8 products are 100% natural skin care products made with the very best botanical oils on the planet and contain absolutely no chemicals, formaldehyde, fillers or toxic ingredients.
Wondering where the name WomanOil8 came from?
WomanOil8 face oils and body moisturising oils were the original 100% natural products blended for women and men. The word ‘WomanOil’ contains the words woman and man and oil! And the ‘8’? Well at the time they were blending 8 of Australia’s most beautiful botanical oils with other superb oils from around the world. There is a policy to use wherever possible at least 8 best quality Australian natural oils. WomanOil8 now has three ranges of products:
- Gorgeous Woman Skin Care – formulated specifically for normal, sensitive, dry and mature skin.
- Gorgeous Girl Skin Care – formulated for normal, oily, combination and acne type skin.
- ManOil8 Skin Care – suitable for all skin types and is soothing, calming and hydrating.
