Why pure, natural skincare is so important at every stage in life became apparent to me as I closely observed the struggles each generation of my family had and still has.
At the age of 28, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was scared and confused. At the same time, I had to undergo an abortion as a consequence of the radiation treatment. Like many other women going through breast cancer, I had fertility concerns. I wanted to have children in the future. Today, I feel blessed because I now have a son and three daughters. I realized how harmful chemicals in cosmetic products are affecting the risk of cancer. My daughters have inspired me to create cleaner and safer certified products with natural and organic ingredients for women of all ages.
My mother’s generation was not properly educated until their late adulthood about skin health and skin damage such as done by environmental pollution, chemicals in products and sunlight exposure because society just did not have the same knowledge we have today.
This is why, today, my mother faces problems with her skin such as age spots quite likely caused by insufficient protection of her skin to environmental conditions.
Two of my four children on the other hand developed severe skin allergies early on in their lives. It became very difficult for me and my husband Stig to find suitable skin care for them, because at that time, clean, organic products rarely existed.
LYKKEGAARD was created to offer a natural yet luxurious skincare line for everyone. Our brand is following very strict standards in regards to ingredients, quality and sustainability to make sure our customers’ trust is well-invested.
Our philosophy is that skin care should be easily accessible and not complicated to use. Well-known certifications and unambiguous messages will guide the consumer and make it easy to decipher the products and the content. Our values are clear and always communicated on the packaging. Furthermore, the products are free from insert sheets, because we wish to be as transparent as possible in regards to ingredients and sustainability.
For more than 20 years, my husband and I have travelled around the world with our company NATULIQUE, sharing our knowledge of organic ingredients, certifications and the Scandinavian lifestyle with people in the beauty industry. We manufacture and sell organic and natural hair products to professional salons globally, and we absolutely love our collaboration with so many talented people in the beauty industry. Many industry professionals have encouraged us through the years to create a luxurious and functional skin care range with the same ethics and attention to ingredients and certifications as NATULIQUE. Our experience from the beauty industry and our extensive product knowledge is the foundation on which we have built LYKKEGAARD.
