- About Lime & Lilac -
I’m Lisa, formulator/founder of Lime & Lilac and a self confessed beauty and nature enthusiast. My inspiration to create my own small capsule range grew out of frustration to find the "perfect" skincare line for my often temperamental skin. I do prefer a more holistic and therapeutic approach that benefits and supports the skins natural function. Carefully selecting the purest of cold pressed oils and essential oils is the key to a healthy skin. Each Lime & Lilac blend offers key essential fatty acids and vitamins which help support and enable your skin to increase cell renewal, support collagen production and fight against inflammation.
Essential oils have been successfully used by the ancient Egyptians and many more after their reign.........including me. Nature harnesses some of the most potent, powerful ingredients; many of which need to be understood and respected. The correct percentage of essential oils can hugely benefit; encouraging the skin to function at its optimum. Neroli (Citrus Aurantium) is a beautifully aromatic oil that goes above and beyond of smelling delicious; it has wonderful antimicrobial properties, softens the appearance of fine lines and scars and has phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties. Frankincense (Boswellia Carterii) is suitable for all skin types, especially ageing and mature skins. Frankincense speeds up the process of healthy skin growth (cytophylactic) and is gently astringent so helps towards toning the skin.
I get most of my inspiration from being mindful of my surroundings, particularly whilst amongst nature and very much enjoy visiting gardens; RHS Wisley being a favourite of mine. When my son was a toddler I enrolled in Moulton horticulture college and this is where my love of plants and plant based skincare started. Moulton college was based at Prebendal House within the Cathedral grounds of Peterborough City.......quite the beautiful setting with a continual buzz of creativity!
