Lyonsleaf Skincare was founded by husband and wife team Ben and Vicky Lyons from their small farm in Somerset, England. They started making skincare products with ingredients they grew on their farm for their own use, but then started selling these on farmers markets and the range grew from there.
The products are made from 100% natural ingredients, are 100% water free and contain 100% active ingredients to deliver effective results. Many of the ingredients are still home-grown on the Lyonsleaf farm, ensuring only the highest quality, chemical-free ingredients go into the products.
Lyonsleaf's hero ingredient is the herb Calendula, which has been used traditionally for hundreds, possibly thousands of years to soothe inflammation and promote healing. It is now known that it contains many beneficial compounds such as carotenoids and flavenoids. Today Calendula is widely used as a safe treatment for eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, dermatitis, rashes, and insect bites. It is also used to help heal tattoos and skin damaged with radiation therapy. Whilst there are no cures for the chronic skin conditions mentioned, many people find using high quality Calendula products (that don't contain other irritating ingredients) can be beneficial, especially in conjunction with a holistic management programme.
