Daily Naturals undergoes complete re-brand

Daily Naturals, the iconic Australian hair care brand, has stepped into clean beauty with a bold new look and range of products.

The younger sister to the beloved South Australian brand, Davroe, Daily Naturals was created in direct response to repeated requests from pharmacies and consumers, desperate to access Davroe’s products outside of salons, and has ensured that reliable, salon professional hair care remains attainable to all consumers.

The rebranded line remains true to Daily Naturals’ ethos of vegan, cruelty-free, sulphate-free and paraben-free hair care.

Now, Daily Naturals takes the natural step into the clean beauty space, carefully formulating with a selection of curated ingredients, and without ingredients consumers may be looking to avoid, such as silicones, mineral oil, phthalates and more. The 17 products are delivered in luxe, recyclable packaging, embodying a range that looks as good as it feels.

Still infused with Australian native extracts, and still promising high performance products, the re-launch ensures Australian hair care lovers can access the luscious, salon-quality products they known and love - with added benefits.

Hive HQ now also looks after Daily Naturals. For more information, reach out to

GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES celebrates 15 years

GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and in honour of this momentous occasion, the brand has released a special limited-edition candle.

The addition, A Tahaa Affair Devotion candle, has been developed with none-other than the brand's iconic Tahaa scent – a cult classic with GLASSHOUSE fans all around the world. Product details can be found here.

To celebrate the milestone, we spoke with founder, Nicole Eckels about what this means to the brand, and the iconic scent that started it all.

What does this milestone mean to the brand? 

This has been a big year for the brand and for me personally, experiencing an idea I had 15 years ago and watching it grow into a now international business. This milestone is a testament to our community and our Glasshouse Fragrances family. It’s a privilege to have been welcomed into the homes of so many Australians over the last 15 years. It’s also a responsibility because I want to make sure that we continue to use creativity and talent to bring joy to our customers.

Tahaa has become an iconic fragrance for the brand - has its popularity surprised you in any way? 

If you had told me all those years ago when I was developing this fragrance that we’d sell one Tahaa product every 1 minute in Australia, I wouldn’t have believed you! But from the moment we created this fragrance people had a connection to it, people were drawn to the nostalgia it embodied. Once you hit that emotional connection and people witness the transformative power fragrance can have, it’s magic.

There are very passionate Tahaa fans out there - do you have any stories that come to mind that customers have shared? 

I felt a huge sense of responsibility launching A Tahaa Affair Devotion, because it is so beloved by Australians. Not long after it launched I received a beautiful message from a young man explaining how GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES has been a huge influence in making him feel more comfortable in his journey coming out. He explained he was sceptical about trying the new interpretation of A Tahaa Affair, but all doubt disappeared once he smelt it. He explained it's all about reminding yourself to find the beauty in simple pleasures. I loved that.  

Tahaa moved into the personal fragrance range last year as an eau de parfum – are there any other plans for the scent in the future?

We know our fans are addicted to Tahaa so we have some exciting new formats coming up later this year… stay tuned!

ECOYA partners with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation

ECOYA is proud to be partnering with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) to raise vital funds to help all sick kids, no matter where, no matter what.

In support of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Sydney Sick Kids Appeal (May 23 – June 30 2022), ECOYA has designed a Special Edition candle and fragrance, created exclusively and lovingly for SCHF, with all proceeds from sales going directly to the front line of children’s healthcare.

The ECOYA team collaborated with SCHF’S Art Program and young oncology patient, Chelsea, on this Special Edition Peach & Patchouli fragranced candle. At just seven years old, Chelsea was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. From her bed at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, Chelsea painted a water-coloured garden featuring flowers and butterflies which the ECOYA design team then incorporated onto the packaging.

The Sydney Sick Kids Appeal shines a light on kid’s health and raises vital funds for sick kids and families (like Chelsea), receiving treatment or care by the network of children’s hospitals and paediatric health services across New South Wales as well as making a positive difference in the lives of sick and injured children.

The ECOYA x SCHF Peach & Patchouli Special Edition candle is available exclusively at, and selected David Jones stores.
