Hi! My name is Daniel Summers, and I created this business (a bit by chance) after meeting my now-husband, Tyler. At the time, he suffered terribly with acne. As anyone with acne can attest, it took a daily physical as well as emotional toll. I wanted to and believed I could help him, so we set about experimenting with home remedies, new doctors and holistic treatments.
After countless failed attempts, my mother gifted us a hand-crafted soap bar. Funny enough, we’d never tried one! We loved that the ingredients were so much more simple than other “beauty bars” we’d tested, but didn’t love one of its primary ingredients—lard. Yes, pig fat. This was our “aha” moment. We finally realized that if we wanted the perfect product, we were going to have to make it ourselves.
I spent months learning, researching and experimenting with different combinations. I focused on gentle plant oil and vegan ingredients whenever possible. My first “finished” formula was amazingly (and shockingly) a success! Tyler’s acne began to clear, and my own skin was smoothing and softening. It didn’t take long for people to notice Tyler’s skin and confidence improve, and that’s when they began asking for details! That is also when Les Creme was born.
In the years that have followed, we’ve added more soaps and scents, skincare options, luxe lotions and clean candles. I am proud to say that we remain dedicated to handcrafting products that contain no animal fats, are cruelty free and are formulated with the highest quality botanical ingredients.
Thank you for visiting our shop and taking the time to discover the Les Creme difference.
