My love for nature and plants began when I was a little girl. I grew up in the beautiful country , spending my days in blooming meadows and green forests, collecting herbs and learning about their healing properties. My first teacher was my mum, a doctor of traditional medicine, who used natural herbal remedies to heal her patients.
My passion for cosmetology was awoken while I was working in a well known cosmetic company. I had found an absolutely new exciting and beautiful world. I was charmed. Since then my life is connected to the beauty industry. By the way I am Fitness personal trainer too. I devoted all my energy and time to master the modern cosmetology. Although the real key to my heart and soul proved to be the course of natural cosmetics in Formula Botanica Acredited Organic Skincare School.
I discovered the precious treasures of nature - waxes, rare oils, exotic butters, herbal extracts and essential oils. I learned how beneficial they are for our skin and health. Enthusiastic with new ideas, I wanted to formulate my own all natural, effective and safe cosmetic recipes. After countless experiments I have fulfilled my dream.
My skincare products name L'AVES skin riches, it composed from my 2 daughters name.
I am 2 girls mum, my dreams is to create natural and plant based skin care products.
I am in the middle of my project . If you will help me, I will do my best to make all women happy.
I will need money for dermatological tests, Organic bodies certification, Palm oil free certification, Vegan and Not tested on animal certification. Why I need this certification - its a proof what my products not just a word, that they are 100% natural, 100% palm oil free, 100% vegan, 100% Eco packaging. I want to spend some money to buy equipment and bio packaging, bio labels.
What does our skincare promise?
Our skincare range is made using natural ingredients your skin will love. They are full of antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins from plant-based super ingredients that have been used for thousands of years. Near all our skincare is preservative free, we use plant based antibacterial agents. Some product consists potassium sorbate which is food grade. We use natural and organic cosmetic approved chelating agent, which is the salt form of the corn-derived plant component phytic acid. Any of numerous ingredients that bind with metal ions or metallic compounds, preventing them from adhering to a surface (such as skin, hair, or clothing) or causing contamination, such as in the case of trace amounts of iron.
Bio active formulas
Powerful biological active formula is an innovative blend of science with the chemistry of nature
Reading studies and reports about the potential safety risks of some ingredients traditionally found in skincare, and having had family members affected by cancer, I am decided early on not to risk it. Where there was doubt about the safety of an ingredient and there were safer natural alternatives, I am chose the safer natural alternative.
no fragrance, no additive colours, no parabens, no phthalates, no phenoxyethanols, no synthetics, GMO free, Gluten free
We will use:
Produced during the distillation of the fresh herb it is selected during the critical period of distillation to ensure a hydrolat of superior quality is produced. This product has been highly praised by its many users. Contains no additives or preservatives.
HERBAL EXTRACTS AND TINCTURES
Our herbal extracts and tinctures are made with fresh or dried plants: flowers, leaves, roots, barks or berries. Extracted for 6 to 8 weeks
Extracts are mostly extracted within glycerin.
PLANT BASED OILS AND BUTTERS
Plant based oils and butters enrich the formulas with essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
We prefer to work with pure cold pressed oils and butters which maintain more healing properties and goodness of plants.
Essential oils not only provide natural fragrance to the products, but also act as powerful active ingredient offering many benefits to the skin and mind.
Natural emulsifiers are included in our formulations to form a stable mixture, to bind together water and oil. We use 100% palm oil free plant derived emulsifiers, which are safe and accepted by organic certifies.
Our vision was to create skincare products using plants (vegan), that do no harm now - cruelty free, or in the future - toxin free, that work naturally and feel and smell as relaxing as if you’d just left the day spa
Palm free oil
Why we don't use palm oil
The popularity of palm oil has had drastic consequences.
To make room for palm tree plantations, tropical rainforests have been cleared on a massive scale. Some sources quote that areas of rainforest the size of 5 football pitches disappear every minute due to palm oil cultivation. Deforestation of course has terrible consequences - increases in greenhouse gas production and habitat destruction. The situation is worst in Indonesia and Malaysia, who between them produce 83% of the world’s palm oil, where peat bogs which store huge amounts of carbon are drained to make way for plantations. It is estimated that in 15 years, 98% of Indonesia and Malaysia’s rainforests will disappear because of deforestation.
Inevitably along with the destruction of expansive rainforests comes the destruction of natural habitats. Orangutans have suffered the most, with their population in the wild declining hugely in recent years. Sumatran tigers have also suffered the consequences, as deforestation allows easy access for poachers. It's thought that within a few years, these tigers will be extinct if there is no intervention.
The production of palm oil has many negative environmental impacts, such as water and air pollution, which in turn are harmful to human health. The consumption of palm oil can also have significant health impacts.
We use glass (for all products) and PET plastic packaging (just for samples) that can be recycled or reused and to safely lengthen the life of the product.
Having grown up with a love of animals and pets, L’AVES could not bare to develop products that created animal misery. Especially as there were plant-based products that had the same benefit without the cruelty.
