Cindy Luken, food scientist, nutritionist, product designer and accomplished entrepreneur created Lük Beautifood to educate women to apply the same diligence with what they put on their skin as the foods they eat after learning traditional lipstick are made from at least 70% synthetic ingredients, many of which are known toxins.
“Every woman has the right to feel and look beautiful without compromising her health or hiding away her innate natural beauty under layers of product,” Cindy says. “I wanted to help women realise that what goes onto their skin, goes within. Even with a Master of Science I couldn’t read the ingredient labels of my cosmetics. I realised it didn’t make sense to carefully avoid toxins in your food, but then apply synthetic dyes to your skin where they’re absorbed in seconds. " In 2008 "I started to formulate my own lipstick range made from delicious and safe food ingredients, in 2010 I launched the Luk Beautifood blog and in 2012 Lip Nourish". Today the brand has sold over 750,000 lippies.
