©2015 - 2019 LUX AESTIVA

WE ARE A HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM FROM BEAUTIFUL NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA ~ AND WE WANT TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT AND USE BEAUTY AND HAIR CARE PRODUCTS IN YOUR DAILY LIFE.

 

FOUNDED IN 2015, WE CREATE 100% NATURAL, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE ARTISAN HAIR AND SKIN CARE PRODUCTS FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO CHOOSE TO UTILISE ONLY PURE AND NATURAL INGREDIENTS ON THEIR HAIR AND SKIN.

WE BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERSTANDING WHAT GOES ONTO OUR HAIR + SKIN AND WHY. EVERYTHING WE USE ON OUR BODIES ABSORBS QUICKLY INTO OUR SKIN AND BLOOD STREAM THIS IS WHY WE PROMISE TO ALWAYS BE OPEN AND HONEST ABOUT ALL OUT INGREDIENTS – WHY THEY ARE INCLUDED IN OUR FORMULATIONS AND HOW THEY WORK.

 

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO LOOK AT A LUX AESTIVA INGREDIENT LIST AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS INSIDE. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY HIDDEN NASTIES OR LONG CHEMICAL COMPOUND NAMES THAT YOU DO NOT RECOGNISE. OUR BOTANICAL, HAND MADE, SMALL BATCH PRODUCTS ARE CREATED USING ONLY THE FINEST, ETHICALLY SOURCED RAW INGREDIENTS - WHICH MEANS THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY PARABENS, SULPHATES, MINERAL OIL, PETROLATUM, SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCE, SYNTHETIC COLOURS, TEA, DEA, GLYCOLS, SILICONES + PEGS IN ANY LUX AESTIVA PRODUCTS.

 

WE NEVER TEST ON ANIMALS, ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE CREATED FROM SCRATCH AND ARE TESTED BY US, ON US. WE DO NOT USE FILLER INGREDIENTS THAT DILUTE OUR FORMULATIONS OR CHEAPER OILS.  THIS RESULTS IN ORIGINAL FORMULATIONS THAT ARE HIGHLY CONCENTRATED, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE + BURSTING WITH OMEGA FATTY ACIDS, ANTI-OXIDANTS, VITAMINS, PROTEINS + MINERALS FOR YOUR HAIR + SKIN.

Our charities..

SEA SHEPHERD CONSERVATION SOCIETY

WE DONATE A PROPORTION OF ALL OUR PROFITS TO SEA SHEPHERD CONSERVATION SOCIETY WHO IS AN INTERNATIONAL NON-PROFIT, MARINE WILDLIFE CONSERVATION ORGANISATION. THEIR MISSION IS TO END THE DESTRUCTION OF HABITAT AND SLAUGHTER OF WILDLIFE IN THE WORLD'S OCEANS IN ORDER TO CONSERVE AND PROTECT ECOSYSTEMS AND SPECIES.

 

WORLD VISION

AT LUX AESTIVA WE SPONSOR A CHILD WITH WORLD VISION. OUR SPONSOR CHILD, MAJORIE, LIVES IN CHAD IN AFRICA. THE REGION IN WHICH MAJORIE LIVES IN CHAD IS AMONG ONE OF THE POOREST IN CHAD AND CHAD IS ONE OF THE POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD. SAFE DRINKING WATER IS SCARCE, MADE WORSE BY FREQUENT FLOODING IN THE AREA. PREVENTABLE DISEASES SUCH AS DIARRHOEA AND CHOLERA ARE COMMON. FARMERS CANNOT GROW ENOUGH FOOD FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND MANY CHILDREN ARE MALNOURISHED. HIV AND AIDS RELATED ILLNESSES ARE COMMON IN THE COMMUNITY. HEALTH CENTRES ARE INADEQUATE AND POORLY EQUIPPED. THERE IS A SEVERE SHORTAGE OF SCHOOLS AND QUALIFIED TEACHERS. MANY CHILDREN CANNOT AFFORD THEIR EDUCATION AND LEAVE SCHOOL BEFORE IT IS COMPLETED.

THE ORANGUTAN PROJECT

WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE WE HAVE ADOPTED KEDAUNG, VIA THE ORANGUTAN PROJECT.  KEDAUNG WAS ESTIMATED TO BE TWO YEARS OLD WHEN HE WAS CONFISCATED FROM A RESIDENCE IN NORTH SUMATRA IN APRIL 2013. HE HAD NUMEROUS DOG BITE WOUNDS ON HIS BODY AND WAS IN A SERIOUS CONDITION. FIGHTING FOR LIFE, HE WAS TAKEN IMMEDIATELY TO THE SOCP ORANGUTAN QUARANTINE CENTRE IN NORTH SUMATRA WHERE HE WAS GIVEN INTENSIVE TREATMENT AND AROUND THE CLOCK CARE. THANKFULLY, KEDAUNG’S FIGHTING SPIRIT SHOWED THROUGH AND HE SURVIVED. 

INDONESIA IS HOME TO SOME OF THE MOST RICH AND BIODIVERSE RAINFOREST IN THE WORLD. IT CONTAINS OVER 80 ENDEMIC SPECIES AND SOME OF THE WORLD’S MOST UNIQUE AND ICONIC ENDANGERED WILDLIFE SUCH AS THE ORANGUTAN, ELEPHANT AND TIGER.  BUT THESE ANIMALS ARE IN GRAVE DANGER. EVERY HOUR 300 FOOTBALL FIELDS OF PRECIOUS REMAINING FOREST IS BEING PLOUGHED TO THE GROUND ACROSS SOUTH EAST ASIA TO MAKE WAY FOR PALM OIL PLANTATIONS. PALM OIL IS USED IN EVERYTHING FROM SNACK FOODS TO SOAPS. IT IS FOUND IN OVER HALF ALL PACKAGED ITEMS ON OUR SUPERMARKET SHELVES. IN THE LAST 20 YEARS, OVER 3.5 MILLION HECTARES OF INDONESIAN AND MALAYSIAN FOREST HAVE BEEN DESTROYED TO MAKE WAY FOR PALM OIL. ALMOST 80% OF ORANGUTAN HABITAT HAS DISAPPEARED IN THE LAST 20 YEARS. WE ARE LOSING OVER 6,000 ORANGUTANS A YEAR. THERE ARE NOW ONLY 400 SUMATRAN TIGERS LEFT IN THE WORLD. WE MUST STOP THIS DEVASTATION IN ITS TRACKS.

WE BELIEVE EVEN THE SMALLEST ACTIONS DON'T GO UNNOTICED AND WE ARE VERY PROUD TO BE ABLE TO GIVE BACK AND PAY IT FORWARD.

WARM REGARDS,

Katie and Owen Blyth
