A bit about the botanical ingredients that make up this solid cleanser...
- Sodium cocoyl isethionate: surfactant derived from coconut oil; gives a soft and creamy lather.
- Stearic acid / palmitic acid (vegetable stearin)**: these waxy substances are used as thickening agents and are found naturally in plant oils. Contrary to what its name may suggest, palmitic acid does not necessarily come from palm oil. In this case, these two ingredients are derived from olive oil.
- Cocos nucifera oil*: coconut oil, used for its nourishing action.
- Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil*: sweet almond oil, protects and nourishes the skin without clogging pores.
- Decyl glucoside: gentle surfactant derived from coconut, used as a cleansing agent and for its foaming properties.
- Fragrance**: from naturally derived ingredients.
- Gardenia jasminoides fruit extract/maltodextrin**: gardenia extract used for its skincare benefits! It uses a natural plant- based sugar as a carrier.
- Tocopherol/helianthus annuus seed oil**: plant-derived antioxidant ( Vitamin E), prevents the oxidation of botanical oils and essential oils; diluted in sunflower oil to make it easier to use.
And the mineral ingredients too...
- Aqua: water, used as a solvent.
- Kaolin**: white clay with purifying and deep-cleansing properties.
- Illite**: yellow clay, used for its absorbent and mattifying properties.

In 2010, Laëtitia Van de Walle had a lightbulb moment… Why was she using five disposable cotton pads and a cleansing lotion every day? Surely it would be better to use simple, ultra-soft, microfibre cleansing wipes that could be reused hundreds of times! The Lamazuna adventure was about to begin…
As for the brand's name, the idea came from Laëtitia's housemate at the time, Nika, who was from Georgia. "Lamazuna" means "pretty young woman" in Georgian!
