Why we chose Lyonsleaf........
Where do I begin...... as someone with skin troubles for as long as I remember, I have tried it all. I have gone through the standard creams, lotions and emollients that are medical and household names- that is until we became more aware of parabens contributing to the chances of tumour growth and many other awful associated conditions. Thats when the new crop of products became widely known- the healthier, more natural alternative. Its horrifying to then learn that these still contain so many harmful additives, foaming agents and preservatives.
I am not a skin expert- but I do know that when I am treating my skin and my children's skin, on a day to day basis but also in localised problem areas, I want to know that I am not going to get a nasty shock in a few years about their ingredients. I have started to look to the experts- I steer away from the huge global companies who try to make their natural ingredients go further, using water, fillers or bulking agents. I now go to those dedicated small businesses who make it their business to find the very best ingredients, make small batches and even in this case grow their own herbs to pack these products with nothing but natural goodness.
As with anything, I have tried and tested these products- there is no end to their uses- probably the most versatile range you will ever come across.
I wish I had found Lyonsleaf when I had babies- those skin irritations through wearing nappies, through chicken pox and other rashes as well as the standard dribbling! The years where in my eyes, only petroleum jelly and that well known thick white cream that is impossible to move was the only answer. i know so much more and we are really lucky to have all 4 pots of natural skin care in my families lives. Im lucky enough to have spoken with Vicky, the co founder of Lyonsleaf (from The Lyons family) and I wouldn't go to anyone else- what she doesn't know isn't worth knowing! Having struggled with her own skin she made it her mission to create a range of unique, award winning skincare and beauty products. The reviews say it all....
"I began having a resurgence of skin issues last year with awful perioral deramtitis...this product is PURE GOLD, combined with cleaning up my diet this product has literally cleared it up. Going from a full face of this skin condition to perfectly happy skin. I just can't recommend this product enough if you have PD try it out (don't apply too much otherwise your skin may get too dry). The lyons family have really created something beautiful here, I was really concerned because the doctor was prescribing strong antibiotics and i didn't want to take them, I was really keen to try and natural way and yes love this product (combined with the cleansing balm)"
"This cream has helped calm my skin so much! I had tried so many products to get rid of my acne, and within a few days this zinc and calendula cream had made a noticeable difference and now a couple of weeks later it's pretty much gone. I would highly recommend it to my fellow acne sufferers, and I love the environmental focus of this company too - thank you!!"
"I’ve waited three months to write this review as I wanted to be sure but these products are incredible!! I’ve had peri oral dermatitis for 16 years, it was mis-diagnosed the whole time and I tried EVERYTHING to get rid eventually just using steroid cream. As soon as I found out what it was I looked for something natural and thankfully didn’t have to come too far. Thank you so much Lyonsleaf!! ❤️"
