New at LLB - Olie Biologique.

When (or if) you read through the list of ingredients on the products you apply to your skin every day, many of which you'd never eat if they were in your food, consider this: you will actually be ingesting them ... through your skin.

Your skin is totally permeable, and it has no filter, so the things that you put on it will enter right into your system. 

TEST THIS: slice a clove of garlic and rub it on the bottom of your foot. Notice that about 30 seconds later, you will be able to taste garlic in your mouth. Why? Because the oils of the garlic have traveled through your body - that fast!

Would it not make sense to re-think what you put on our skin?
Because I have seen the effects these chemicals can have on one's system, I have committed myself to a quest to introduce as many wonderful natural or organic high end and high quality products to my clients as I can.
We all start out as perfect little human beings, and if we put a little effort into it, we can continue to keep our beautiful shells running on clean fuel and as perfect as the our world will allow it.
(Hey, it's always worth to try our best)

NEW at LLB in June:


Olie Biologique is founded on the simple notion that looking and feeling radiantly healthy is completely natural. With minimal packaging and maximum benefits, the certified-organic skincare oils are harvested without taking advantage of the earth. 100% pure and equally luxurious, Ol├Če Biologique products contain the best botanical ingredients that are nourishing, moisturizing, healing, restorative and anti-aging. They provide incredible daily solutions for face, hair, nails, and body.

Choose from 23K Gold Argan oil, Huile Claire, Huile Moderne, Huile Radicale and 100% Argan Oil.
Women in France have sworn by these oils for many years.

Just a few drops of these oils, used alone or in your (hopefully organic : ) moisturizer will totally transform your skin in as little as a week. Oils are the latest pathway to directly and intensely introduce natural essential minerals, vitamins and nutrients to your skin, healing and protecting it and balancing it out (no, oils do not make you oily, on the contrary) - use them on your face, nails, hair... wherever you need some extra nutrition - introduced via the outside.

We will introduce some oils in the travel size for you to test, and then there are a few that I KNOW you will love, and we'll have those in the full size.

For those of you who are interested, here is some more info about Argan Oils and their multitude of benefits.

We're excited to welcome these new playmates to our collection of natural treats.
Stop by some time in June and let us introduce you!

And don't forget, we also have a full lineup of wonderful SkinOwl oils for you!
