5 out of 5 stars
(101)

Announcement   From SOIL to SKIN, combining the alchemical traditions of my native Persia with a modern sensibility informed by my architectural background, all of my products are WILDMADE in LA using whole, minimally processed, pure ingredients without the addition of synthetics or extenders. My proprietary skincare formulas have been developed over 20 years of research. I source ingredients that are safe during manufacture and the botanicals I extract are WILD-GROWN in my biodynamic garden (located in the heart of West Hollywood) or ethically WILDCRAFTED from pristine sources.

LALUN SEASONAL SKINCARE offers a simple regimen that honors the skin’s response to the seasonal rhythms of the year as inspired by the writings of Rudolf Steiner in his book "Alchemy" and the traditional beauty treatments of my native Persia. Like plants, we are affected by seasonal changes that can lead to imbalances as our skin works hard to regulate differences in temperature, humidity and sunlight. My skincare is designed to help the skin get in shape and rebalance itself each season. To read about reasons for seasonal skincare, see Sarita Coren's wonderful post that features Lalun Seasonal Skincare: http://ediblefacial.com/2015/09/30/why-seasonal-skin-care-makes-sense/

LALUN APOTHECARY includes simple botanical remedies for everyday use. These are based on traditional herbal recipes and good intentions.

PARFUMS LALUN takes my love of botanicals, Persian background and training in architecture to the next level by creating olfactory constructs that enable one to experience the beauty of nature as a pure experience. I use a palette of naturally derived essences and believe in full disclosure, so my perfume notes are my ingredients. No more hiding behind the word "Fragrance", because everyone deserves to know what they are putting on their bodies.

ZERO WASTE is a priority for my company. I have take steps to eliminate waste throughout the manufacturing process, including packaging. All Lalun glassware is re-usable and I offer customers a 50 cent refund per piece. To redeem, simply save packing materials and mail back glass empties for a refund.

Just the best toner, ever! The scent is gorgeous and it stays. I use it twice a day immediately after stepping out of the shower and it has a nice, slightly silky texture. My skin feels much more hydrated. :)

About

Modern Beauty Alchemy

Lalun Naturals is the culmination of years of research and experimentation with natural personal care formulas and perfumes that began as a way to care for myself while I was working as an architect in New York City in the mid 1990's.

I started making my own personal care products because commercial ones caused me to have skin reactions. Returning to the traditions of my native Persia I quickly discovered that oils and herbal remedies were more effective in combatting skin problems exacerbated by stress, lack of sleep, pollution and poor nutrition.

Using simple ingredients and guided by the changes of the seasons, I developed my line of personal care products while learning how to use and identify beneficial wild plants.

While creating my skincare formulas, I began wondering how essential oils could be blended solely for their scent. This led me down the rabbit hole where I discovered my passion for perfume as well as my uncanny ability to work with and refine my nose. I create perfume as art using a natural palette.

    I love working with plants. Over the years they have revealed themselves to me and have allowed me access to their mysteries. The result is a body of work that includes skincare, apothecary and natural perfumes. Explore and Enjoy!
