Behind the Scenes

Hello. My name is Sonya Morales.  I am the formulator and producer of the Miod Skincare range.

Here is a little insight into ‘me’ so that you know who is behind these natural and organic skincare products.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful children.

Since a child I have always been passionate about health, good wholesome foods and taking care of oneself.  I always believed that if you took care of your body it would take care of you.  As a teenager I struggled to find a skincare range that worked for me.  I tried an array of different products and read various magazines, books, etc all in the search for the right one.  It wasn’t until  years later that I found a brand from Japan that produced a natural cleansing oil and facial oil that I found something that worked!

Years following I studied business and financial administration and followed that path for some years.  During this time I travelled the world availing myself to some pretty beautiful skincare brands out there.

I then returned home to start a family and from there decided to take up what inspired me the most.  This has taken me to manage my own business and hand make the skincare you see here today.  I strive to make products that are unique and work using only natural and certified organic ingredients.  With every new formulation I make I test on myself and other family members monitoring the results, taking in the feedback and reformulating as needed.

I am an animal lover and wildlife warrior.  When I am not at work I volunteer for Wildlife Victoria.

I hope to make a difference in this world through my skincare range showing those that natural and organic is the way and that you do not need chemicals and additives to achieve beautiful and lasting results.  I hope you love this range and that it makes a difference for you!


Miód, a Polish word meaning honey, represents my philosophy and what I aim to achieve in the natural organic skincare products range I produce.

The honey bee works together with the environment which provides her with food, pollinating flowers in exchange for nectar, while the honey she makes is healthy and natural with many healing and medicinal properties; enriching and sustaining.

With Miód Skincare I share with you my passion to create organic products which feed and nourish the skin, and which respect the environment from which they come.

Our Story

Miód Natural Skincare was born out of a passion for health and wellbeing, love of nature and desire for a simpler, healthier and more natural life. It is centred on a belief that simplifying, letting go and coming back to basics is better for our health, as well as being kinder to the environment.

To us less is definitely more.  We use a small number of carefully selected, high quality whole natural ingredients to create truly pure, clean and honest products which feed and nourish the skin.  Focusing on the use of nutrient rich, certified organic cold pressed plant oils and essential oils, our organic products are lovingly hand made in small batches to ensure quality and freshness.

We are ethically and environmentally minded and aim to make a positive impact by choosing local, paying close attention to manufacturing processes and spreading the importance of natural, organic and local products.

Why Choose Natural Skincare?

The skin is our largest organ and in addition to being the first line of defense to what is absorbed into our bodies it performs a number of important functions.  These include providing structure and protection to internal tissues, temperature regulation, elimination of toxins and manufacture of Vitamin D.  Skin is also a permeable barrier meaning that what we put on our bodies will, inevitably, also make its way into our bloodstream and vital organs.

Looking after your skin is not just about making it look good on the outside, but also your internal health and well being.

Many ingredients commonly used in skincare products have been known to cause allergic reactions, skin irritation and accumulate in vital organs.  They have been linked to neuro, reproductive, respiratory, kidney, liver, developmental and immuno toxicity as well as cancer.  In addition to being harmful, these ingredients will not provide you with any nourishment, and are of no benefit to your overall health.

Using products made with nutrient rich, natural ingredients means that they will both nourish and enrich your skin and continue having a positive effect as they are absorbed into your body.

How do I know if it’s Natural?

Unfortunately increased awareness and demand for natural skincare has caused the market to become flooded with hundreds of products claiming to be organic and natural.  Unfortunately current Australian labelling laws allow products to be labelled as natural and organic even if they contain little to no natural ingredients.  Consequently it is important to read the labels.

Be mindful of the number of ingredients and where they are located.  It does not take many ingredients to make a high quality, effective and nutritious natural skincare product.

Many ingredients in non organic natural skincare are simply fillers, stabilisers and bulking agents that hold no nutritional value.

In terms of location on the label, ingredients must be listed in order of quantity contained in the products, from highest to lowest.  If the natural plant oil or extract is at the bottom of a list of 20 to 30 ingredients then any benefit it may hold is far outweighed by everything else that makes up the product.

The manufacturing process of ingredients is also important to consider as this affects their chemical structure and therefore, nutritional content.

Look out for refined ingredients, those extracted in the presence of heat or using a chemical solvent.  These processes strip plant oils, extracts and waxes of their health giving properties and can leave the end product contaminated if a solvent had been used to extract it.

Finally, if a product is certified organic it does not mean it is 100% natural.

Organic means that the ingredient was grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals.  A certified organic product can contain up to 5% of ingredients which are not certified organic, usually in the form of emulsifiers and preservatives, again highlighting the importance of reading labels.

Look after the only skin and body you have and contribute positively to your overall health by choosing products that will nourish and heal.

About Miód Products

The heroes of the Miód natural organic skincare range are our face and body oils.  A good quality cold pressed plant oil is the purest form of skincare, as it is highly nutritious on its own and does not require any other additives to keep it stable. Our oils can be used as moisturisers in place of creams and lotions.

They vary from deeply hydrating to very light weight and easily absorbed, so suit all types of skin and can be used daily or as a special treatment, depending on your skin’s needs.

A cream is an emulsion made from oil and water, and emulsifiers  are required to keep the mixture combined.  The majority of plant derived emulsifiers have either undergone extensive processing or require a large number of additives to keep the mixture stable.  In place of these highly processed ingredients our specially formulated creams are naturally emulsified using only Beeswax and Sclerotium Gum.

Our natural organic skincare products have a light to medium weight, easily absorbed texture and are suitable to use day or night, or as a base for make up. We also use Beeswax to make rich, deeply hydrating and nourishing balms. Depending on how your skin is feeling these can be used as a daily moisturiser, or as a deep treatment a couple of times a week.

Additionally, our Hydrating Face Mist can be used in conjunction with the oils, creams and balms to enhance absorption and adjust their moisturising quality

Choosing the right products for you

To create this organic natural skincare range we took a slightly different approach; a deviation from the norm of sorting products by skin type.  In the spirit of keeping it simple each product is completely unique but also suitable for most skin types.

The difference lies in how you use it.  No one person is the same, and so we do not want you to try to fit into a ‘skin type’ mold.  How your skin looks and feels also depends on the weather, season or simply how much sleep you’ve had that day.

Under each product description you will find a recommendation of the types of skin that would find it most beneficial and you’ll find some guidelines on how to use the products, to make selection easier.

Miód is all about taking a more intuitive approach with your skin care routine.  In our ingredients you will find descriptions of each of our ingredients and can use this to make a more informed choice.  You know best what is right for your skin on a day to day basis and we want to empower you to do what feels right not what someone says is right at an isolated point in time.
