In addition to all the founders I feature in this “natural beauty buff” series, I’m thrilled to bring you fresh beauty tips from the dear stockists who curate beautiful online (and sometimes, in-real-life) stores for us to let loose.

Many of you know, love and shop Canadian and U.S. green beauty store Eco Diva Beauty, but how well do you know co-founder Garcy Fry and the story behind this luxurious online store?

I had the pleasure of meeting Garcy in person at 2013’s “A Night for Green Beauty” in New York City, and was thrilled to chat with her again at this year’s event in Los Angeles.

During our quick conversation, it was lovely to hear about Eco Diva’s birth — the brainchild of Garcy’s whip-smart mother, Charlene — and how Garcy, a professional makeup artist, was leading the site’s growth.

It’s women like this (and especially these mother-daughter teams!) that excite me about the green beauty industry. If you see something missing out there, go forth and create it!

And while you may think “oh, there are plenty of green beauty shopping sites,” each one has a unique personality and style.

Shopping on one may not be the same as shopping on others, and I’ve enjoyed the luxurious experience of shopping Eco Diva Beauty myself. You are taken care of!

And you can only be taken care of by someone who truly knows how to take care of herself.

Below, Garcy shares her natural beauty and health rituals that keep her looking and feeling her best.

Be inspired.

Be healthy.

Be an Eco Diva.

green beauty products that garcy fry of eco diva beauty keeps on her nightstand

On Garcy’s Nightstand

Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment

This has become a bedtime ritual for both my husband and me. It almost immediately puts my mind at ease and helps me sleep better.

Vapour Organic Beauty Lux Lip Conditoner

The last thing I do before bed is put on lip balm — I’m an addict. And I’ve been addicted since Lip Smackers were introduced to the market. I don’t know if that damage is reversible, but at least I’m eating organic lip balm now.


Now these are an essential piece on my nightstand, not because I love them, but because I love my husband. If they are not in my ears at night, then the love for my husband decreases ever so quickly.

Good Book

I need to read before bed to help turn my mind off and go to sleep. I love anything written by Khaled Hosseini and stories about life in the middle east.

Liquid Calcium Magnesium (kept in the fridge, but part of the nightly ritual)

Just recently I’ve had some troubles sleeping. I toss and turn all night long, so my naturopath suggested magnesium to help sleep better.

favorite green beauty product picks from garcy fry of eco diva beauty

In Garcy’s Purse / Beach Bag

Consonant Skincare “The Perfect Sunscreen SPF 30”

My sun-worshipping days are over, and this sunscreen helps block UVA and UVB rays without all the toxic chemicals. It’s ultra-smooth, grease-free and leaves absolutely NO white residue! And that’s why they call it perfect.

Soapwalla Deodorant Cream

This has been a staple for me for years now. I just love its creamy consistency, the fresh scent and how I can sweat my tush off and still smell dandy!

prtty peaushun lotion from eco diva beauty

PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight Body Lotion

I love to keep PRTTY PEAUSHUN in my bag and slather it on any parts of my body that are showing to give me a luminescent glow. It also helps soothe burns and is a natural bug repellant — how cool is that?!

La Bella Figura Tesoro Mediterranean Blend

In Garcy’s Bathroom

La Bella Figura Tesoro Mediterranean Blend

This summer I’ve used this oil more than anything else. I love how light it is and how well it hydrates without leaving my skin feeling greasy.

kahina giving beauty night creamKahina Giving Beauty Night Cream

This is what I call preventative medicine. Wrinkles can take a hike while I sleep, because I’m sleeping with collegan-boosting ingredients like resveratrol. This is by far the best night cream I’ve ever used. Its whipped texture is so lovely and the scent its magical, like all of Kahina’s products.

  • Nice interview..
    As a non english native speaker, I am wondering what the exact meaning of “buff” is? merci!

  • These posts are awesome, Kim. There’s always something new that I learn–whether it’s a supplement or health tip or beauty potion – and usually all three! This post has all that plus Garcy seems like such a lovely person too. And that’s no small fry. That’s someone to shop from. :-)

    • Thanks for your awesome support, Sarita! I’m glad these posts are helpful — if you can believe it, I almost killed them at one point! I think it’s fun to know what founders are using, as they have the same (if not more!) exposure to so many great green beauty products as us bloggers do … but they have to curate for their shops / lines to deliver what really works :)

  • Thank you so much for having me Kim! I’ve been a fan of your for so long! Xoxox

    • So great to have you, Garcy! Thanks for your support and all the great work you do spreading the Eco Diva love. xoxo

  • What a lovely interview! I’ve not shopped from them yet, and now I’ll have to check them out and send some Canadian friends their way.

    I love seeing books and aromatherapy on Garcy’s nightstand as it looks almost like mine.

  • I always love these interviews you do! Eco Diva Beauty is one of my favorite places to shop and I’ve been meaning to try the much raved about PRTTY PEAUSHUN.

  • Garcy is such an inspiration! I loved reading about her green beauty necessities. I’m really intrigued by Consonant Skincare products and am also going to read up more about Liquid Calcium Magnesium ;) Great post!
