Our Story | Lion and Loki - Lion & Loki

So, What's The Story?

Meet Carolyn

The idea to create this natural, nurturing skin oil was born as I began planning for motherhood.

I became more focused on maintaining excellent health and wellbeing for myself and my unborn baby. I developed an interest in how the skin worked and became passionate about learning to take the best care of my skin using only the best that nature produced.

After switching to a healthy plant based diet rich in nutrients, I gave a great deal of thought to what else I could do to nourish and protect us both and combat the toll that today’s life takes on the skin.

Further research confirmed that many skin and body care products contain toxic ingredients including parabens, synthetic colours and artificial fragrance.

It made sense to replace all of my potentially harmful skin and body care products with gentle natural products that would infuse my skin with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Doing so helped my skin grow and adapt to my changing body whilst preventing stretch marksmaintaining soft silky skin and attaining a healthy radiant glow.

My journey of exploration into botanicals, oils and other natural ingredients empowered me to develop, alongside our team of chemists and estheticians, a safe, nutrient-dense and ultra-hydrating plant based product which was 100% natural, light and easily absorbed and gives glowing results of soft, supple and radiant skin.

As others began commenting and noticing my changing skin, I realised that my mission in life was to help not only other moms-to-be to feel confident, and comfortable in their skin, but also all women alike.

My beautiful son Lion's entrance into the world, and my puppy Loki's loyalty and love throughout my pregnancy is what inspired Afterglow to be launched as my gift to all the women in the world concerned about caring for their skin as mother nature intended; safely and naturally. My skin oil removes the need to compromise between health and beauty.

I hope you enjoy the comfort and confidence you will gain from pampering your skin with Afterglow.

Much love,
Carolyn xo
