Made on a small farm in Somerset, England, using home-grown ingredients. Founders Ben and Vicky Lyons are passionate about producing award winning skincare that is 100% natural and 100% active.
Lyonsleaf are proud to be at the forefront of a paradigm shift in skincare, encompassing the oil cleansing method and the use of natural oils to balance both dry and oily skin. This shift is reducing the number of products you need in your wash bag and negating the need for artificial chemicals in your products.
Lyonsleaf have a water free policy meaning no need for preservatives (Formaldehyde, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate etc.) or emulsifiers. Naturally they also omit artificial fragrance and colour.
This water free approach also means Lyonsleaf products are 100% active ingredients, (they don't add large amounts of water that simply evaporates from your skin). Consequently, Lyonsleaf products contain a huge quantity of natural compounds, vitamins and antioxidants to benefit the skin. They are incredibly effective, and, because of their potency and consitency, you need only use very sparingly.
Lyonsleaf have crafted innovative recipes and perfected their own cold blending process to create natural butters that glide on and absorb quickly and conveniently like a water based cream. The difference is you will feel the benefit for much longer because Lyonsleaf products hydrate by repairing and maintaining skin barrier, preventing the excessive moisture loss that is the root cause of dry skin and the premature sagging and wrinkling it causes.
Lyonsleaf's small range of products perform many tasks, and are suitable for all skin types, so they cater for most needs. Lyonsleaf believe it is beauty business hype that leads to your bathroom shelves heaving under a myriad of expensive products.
Lyonsleaf is a young company, although they have many years of experience making their own skincare, they have only been doing so commercially since 2011. They are hugely proud to have already won their first two awards at the 2014 FreeFrom Skincare Awards in two of the most competitive categories, They won Gold in the Problem Skin category for their Calendula Cream used with great success to manage Eczema, Psoriasis, dermatitis and even Acne. They also won a silver in the 'Leave-on Face Care category for their remarkable multi-purpose Beauty Balm hailed as 'the lightest balm' and 'one of the best cleansers' you will every try.
Lyonsleaf insist on 100% natural recipes and they never use refined (solvent extracted) oils. They use a large amount of organic ingredients, but only when the benefit justifies the cost. This approach optimises purity and value allowing them to offer incredibly pure products at a very reasonable price.
Furthermore Lyonsleaf are on a mission: to put the power of the beauty industry back into the hands of the people, providing real information about the workings of your skin and the ingredients in your products, so you can make informed decisions about what is best for you.
