Who are Lyonsleaf?
Lyonsleaf are Ben and Vicky Lyons and they run their business from their small farm on the Mendip Hills in Somerset, England.
Lyonsleaf started out as a food and herb business, selling the produce they grew on their farm to local restaurants and at farmers markets. However, they had long been making natural skincare products as a hobby (using home-grown ingredients from the farm) and so in 2010 started to sell some of their beauty products on market stalls, too.
Lyonsleaf skincare was an instant hit with their customers, who would wander off with a tester and return half an hour later to buy. they were also amazed to have many customers telling them it had worked wonders for treating their eczema and psoriasis.
They became increasingly interested in taking as natural an approach to life as possible. Vicky had also developed very sensitive skin and started having reactions to products that her skin had previously tolerated. The turning point came when she had a reaction to a cleanser that caused terrible eczema on her face. She used her own natural calendula moisturiser to soothe it and her skin started to improve.
Doubting her own wisdom she went to the doctor who gave her a prescription for a mild steroid cream. As soon as she applied it she said she knew it was a mistake; within a few seconds her skin started stinging and my eyes swelled so much she could hardly see.
At that point they knew they could offer a better alternative with their natural skincare products and really started to believe themselves. They decided to focus on skincare alone and embarked on some serious research, to create a natural skincare range that provided real results while being kind to the skin.
With a lot of hard work, Lyonsleaf has since developed into becoming the small but perfectly formed range of 100% natural skincare products you see today. They are hugely proud to have since won many awards in the Free From Skincare Awards.
The Lyonsleaf Ethos
100% Natural Ingredients
All Lyonsleaf skincare is 100% natural, with every single ingredient working hard to fulfil a purpose for the skin. If an ingredient doesn’t directly benefit the skin, it’s not included in Lyonsleaf products.
100% Water-Free Products
By avoiding the use of water in Lyonsleaf formulations it eliminates the need for any synthetic ingredients, as water-free products don’t require the use of harsh preservatives and emulsifiers. You won’t find a single artificial preservative, colour or fragrance in Lyonsleaf products so you can rest assured that your skin is being treated with the utmost care.
100% Active Ingredients
By taking a water-free approach, Lyonsleaf is able to deliver 100% active ingredients containing a huge quantity of natural compounds, vitamins and antioxidants to benefit the skin. All Lyonsleaf ingredients are in the most unprocessed state possible with only cold-pressed, unrefined and cold blended oils used, to maximise their effects on the skin.
Made in Britain with Home-Grown Ingredients
Lyonsleaf products are made on a small farm on the Mendip Hills in Somerset, England. Lyonsleaf grows its own ingredients where possible, to ensure the harvest is the best quality and that nothing has been sprayed or grown with chemicals.
