LESSE is a new way of thinking about organic skin care. A simplified ritual of uncompromising, efficacious essentials. Rigorously researched, meticulously formulated, and thoughtfully packaged — for optimal impact on your skin and minimal impact on our planet.
Founded on a philosophy that less is more, its line is a discerning edit of only the essential—supportive products made from efficacious and uncompromising ingredients, to elevate the skin and one's everyday rituals. A way to reduce consumption, and clutter; and clear the way for a slower and more intentional approach to beauty.
Lesse's founder, Neada Deters, a former beauty editor in New York and now living in LA, created her very own skincare line with the tagline 'Less is more'. Born in Sydney, Australia, she was immersed in nature from a young age and was raised with a love for the environment and an appreciation of botanicals. After suffering from cystic acne and very sensitive skin, she took it upon herself to create the products she couldn’t find anywhere else.
She recognized the undersupply of organic, truly effective formulations. She created Lesse with a focus on creating real solutions for common and chronic skin concerns and a brand that is considerate of the Earth.
In late June 2018, Lesse was launched with a singular product: the Ritual Serum — which, to this day, remains Deters’ number one skincare essential.
In collaboration with its manufacturer, Lesse grows many of the ingredients found in its essential products. For those that don't thrive in the cooler Canadian climates, Lesse sources from verified ethical and sustainable partners around the world.
Lesse is devoted to creating highly effective, multi-use products – so your skin needs less. Fewer, better essentials equal less energy consumed and less waste.
Its formulas are mindfully packaged in low-waste, recycled, and forever recyclable materials – paper, aluminum, and glass.
Lesse believes animals are central to the care of our planet, and all of its products are and always will be cruelty-free.
