Serious skincare for the body, using organic and wild crafted superfood ingredients in luxurious formulations to nourish, nurture and protect without compromising our health or the planet.

79 Lux is the perfect alchemy of potent botanicals, powerful skin healers, anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants to feed the skin and counter-balance environmental stressors whilst improving its ability to heal and replenish.

How did it all begin?

It began with my quest to find the perfect body product that ticked all of my boxes. I needed something to feed my dry, eczema prone skin. It had to be deeply hydrating but not greasy, natural, largely organic and luxurious.
