Current Obsession: Pure Natural Diva Botanicals Organic Sugar Scrub

obsession sugar scrub

I pretty much surpassed the reasonable limit of beauty products that I’m allowed to bring into the shower before my husband has legal grounds for divorce. (At the moment, he barely has room for his razor…or a place to stand.)  But this heavenly-scented all-natural sugar scrub was worth smuggling in.

Pure Natural Diva Botanicals is a brand with eco-savvy ethics and  a passion for helping  people be kind to their bodies and the planet.  The products are formulated with the finest botanical ingredients– giving women a choice over the conventional synthetic perfumes that dominate the marketplace.   Their POLISHED Organic Sugar Scrub in “DIVA”  ($40) is absolutely divine. The botanical scent of DIVA lingers on your skin, delicious, soulful, sultry and mysterious. (Notes include natural musk derived from Ambrette, a sinfully smooth New Caledonian Sandalwood, blended together in a lusciously robust Vanilla.) It’s 97% organic, vegan and sulfate free.

Even more than I love a great product—a great story. The story that lead Tania (Founder and CEO) to the create Pure Natural Diva is pretty intriguing.

“Tania’s mom was a young teen and a hippy when she was born. Growing up they lived in a teepee, a communal dairy farm and she moved schools 17 times. Of course she rebelled, craved a “normal life” and moved out on her own by the age of 16. In pursuit of her “normal” she ended up in Los Angeles married a successful writer (Here Comes the Boom, Zookeeper, King of Queens) and became a not so Hollywood, “Hollywood Wife”. It was after the birth of her first child in 2009 that she founded Pure Natural Diva. Tania had discovered her mother was ahead of her time in many ways, but she wasn’t quite ready to trade her Louboutin’s for Birkenstocks.

Tania found herself in the middle of a conundrum.  There was no going back to the teepee, but she couldn’t continue on her “pre-baby” path.  Pure Natural Diva was her solution; eco savvy living full of fabulous. Now she’s created Pure Natural Diva Botanicals a remarkable line of high performing naturals, so you can feel GOOD about smelling GREAT.”
