CLE Cosmetics. 

K-Beauty from California, USA.

Why we [heart] 'em:

CLE is non-traditional. A team of artists, designers, and professionals dedicated to and guided by the belief that beauty lies in embracing your natural self, in finding freedom in fluidity, and welcoming the truths hidden in imperfections. They are real womxn*.

Founder, Lauren Jin, believes that beauty is an expansive medium upon which to connect with womxn*. For her, the concept of beauty always assumed a more ritualistic nature and its perceptions were subjective and adaptable. She wanted to create something that resonated with the modern womxn*, that spoke to the truth that there is no one way to feel beautiful, and no right way to get there.

From that, CLE was born.

Each product within the line is designed to promote a sense of ritual and to support the contemporary womxn with self-care basics as they pursue the fullest expression of their personal power and sensuality.

Their mission: modern products for the modern individual. Designed with purpose and versatility, bearing in mind that the very best products are ones that nurture your most natural state.

Chappies wrapper worthy facts:

  • Their skincare and makeup are curated, sourced, and centered on the latest Korean Beauty technology
  • Individual products embrace minimalism both in their packaging and simple effectiveness.
  • All products are formulated with non-toxic, ethically-made, vegan, and cruelty-free ingredients. As a brand we believe the use of animals or animal byproducts in the production of beauty products is unnecessary and archaic. 
  • Key ingredients in their formulations (those available on S T R L ?): Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid; Snow Mushroom; Snow Lotus Flower Extract; Niacinamide; Coconut Oil; Blueberry Fruit Extract; Nattō Gum; Bamboo Extract. Ingredients are sourced responsibly.

Certified cool indeed! [Shop CLE Cosmetics]

LEBON Oral Care.

From Belgium; made in France.

Why we [heart] 'em:

The chicest (and most delicious) toothpaste you will ever use. Inspired by a variety of wondrous destinations and the accompanying feelings, flavours, and scents that made those journeys memorable. 

Founded in 2015 by a husband and wife team, certified in dermo-cosmetics and professional photographers, respectively, and lovers of nature and the sea. The founders wanted to make a dent in the dental industry with an ethical and inspired-by-nature toothpaste--created for those who value health and well-being. The flavours are their interpretation of remote, inspiring, romantic destinations that they have travelled to together allowing LEBON lovers to indulge in a moment of escapism. 

Organic Green Tea is used in the formulations instead of fluoride to naturally protect enamel, while Aloe Vera naturally protects the gums. Papaya Fruit Extract functions to dissolve stains in the Whitening Series.

Their mission is to marry ingredients that are healthy yet effective and to use natural flavours that will turn the 2 minutes a day daily essential into a moment to reflect, refocus and experience a true awareness - this is what they call LEBON Flavorcare™.

Chappies wrapper worthy facts:

  • “Le bon” in French means “The Good”
  • Although not inspired by South Africa, one of the flavours feature Rooibos as an ingredient--that's pretty cool with S T R L ? 
  • LEBON is often said to be the La Mer of Oral Care. 
  • The flavours are created using essential oils and extracts from an 18th century established perfumer in Grasse, France. 
  • Papaya Fruit naturally contains an enzyme called papain. This enzyme is what is responsible for breaking down and dissolving stains on teeth in the Whitening Series.
