Going back to basics with skincare

When their youngest son suffered terribly from eczema as a baby, Adriana and Rob tried just about everything available to help restore his skin to health.

As a naturopathic pharmacist and dispensing pharmacist now faced with direct treatment for eczema, they were unhappy with mass-produced product offerings and the need for continuous steroid use – they knew he had to there’s a better way.

So in 2017, using their unique combination of skills, the husband and wife team began developing a range of all-natural, evidence-based and effective formulas to help soothe and heal irritated skin.

Your local newspaper, when you want it.

“Our first formula, a pomade now called The Original Concentrate, used a high concentration of hemp seed oil in the base, giving it a distinctly green color,” Adriana said.

“When family, friends and patients who had used it successfully on irritated skin heard about it, people started coming to our pharmacy asking for ‘The Little Green Cream’ – and so The LGC Co. was born.”

Since then, Adriana and Rob have expanded their range to cover not only the needs of sensitive skin prone to eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis, but also general face and body care.

“We understand that when it comes to overall health, what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your mouth, and the way your skin looks can have a huge impact on how you feel.” , said Adriana.

Their line of all-natural skin care products uses hemp seed oil as a key ingredient, combined with herbs and nutrients proven to repair, restore and maintain a healthy skin barrier.

“Rob and I chose to use hemp seed oil for several reasons,” Adriana said.

“Not only is it a renewable and sustainable resource, which is so essential these days, but more importantly, it contains an optimal ratio of omega 3, 6 and 9, phytocannabinoids and is rich in antioxidants, which in makes the perfect choice for skin care.

“We combine it with key herbs and vitamins, all scientifically proven to help restore skin barrier function and lead to healthy, happy skin.”

Nothing goes into The LGC Co.’s creations that isn’t absolutely necessary to restore your skin’s vitality.

Each formula contains numerous active ingredients that all play a role in achieving healthy, beautiful skin, with no unnecessary fillers to dilute effectiveness.

Not to mention that their products contain no petrochemicals, parabens, palm oil, synthetic fragrance, preservatives or steroids to name a few.

All creations are lovingly handcrafted with mortar and pestle and tested on family and friends (not rabbits) before the formulations are approved for production, right here in WA.

In addition to skin health, respect for the environment is an important part of The LGC Co. ethos, so all ingredients are naturally sourced from sustainable industries where possible, cruelty-free. animals, and products packaged in recyclable aluminum boxes and plastics made from 100% carbon neutral Australian suppliers.

This ensures that the products are not only good for you, but also good for the environment and future generations.
