Everyone’s skin is unique, and skin changes daily. Our skin is affected by environmental conditions, hormones, stress levels, lifestyle – a wide range of factors that change constantly. We treat skin primarily by age. Our age specific products ensure you address the needs of your skin according to the age you are. Young skin needs protecting but no over stimulating. More mature skins need higher levels of nourishment and help to keep skin supple and firm.
What does our skincare promise?

Nearly all of our skincare is preservative free, we use plant based antibacterial agents. Some product consists potassium sorbate which is food grade (some ingredients preserved by suppliers). 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 compound, 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.
We use Sodium Levunate, Sodium Anisate and/or Parfum/Fragrance Preservatives - which allows by Natural cosmetic LAW - preservative free claim.
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 od some ingredients traditionally found in skincare, and having had family members affected by cancer, L’AVES decided early on not to risk it. Where there was doubt about the safety of an ingredient and there were safer natural alternatives, L’AVES chose the safer natural alternative.
No harmful fragrance, no additive colours, no parabens, no phthalates, no phenoxyethanols, no synthetics, GMO free, gluten free.
Vegan | 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 consequencses – 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.
ECO-Responsible Packaging | We use glass bottles for all products that can be recycled or reused and to safety lengthen the life of the product.
Cruelty Free | Having grown up with a love of animals and pets, L’AVES could not bare to develop products that created animals’ misery. Especially as there were plant-based products that had the same benefit without the cruelty.
