Leyende is a strong believer in that true beauty needs to be cultivated with nature.
Our skin is a living organism. It breathes, interacts, and absorbs everything it encounters. It's in constant communication with our environment. Without healthy skin, we are vulnerable to the effects of everything we encounter. Years ago we were used to believe that the skin acted as a shield to the outside world, blocking out whatever was applied to it. We now know that whatever we put on the skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. You need only look to medical patches, anti-smoking patches and hormone replacement patches for proof.
Yet every day, multiple products come into contact with our skin, from shampoo and conditioners to body wash, moisturizers, makeup and hair spray. All together, we probably apply more than 100 chemicals to our bodies daily, and we know that not all of them are good for us.
In fact, many are downright harmful. Some ingredients, like sulfates and harmful chemicals found in synthetic fragrances and nail polishes, are known to disrupt the hormone system and are a factor in diseases of the reproductive system, skin and breast cancer. Sadly, our daily use of a long list of harmful ingredients in our personal care products begs the question: are short-term results now worth the risk of ugly health consequences later?
Leyende has always believed that by using natural organic raw materials, we can help promote a culture where people realize that their true beauty doesn't need to be artificially grown but can be naturally cultivated with proper use of our uniquely formulated products that nourishes the skin while relaxing the senses.
We stand proudly by the natural and organic products we sell, knowing that their purity and efficacy are helping people to nurture their health and beauty as well as inspiring them to recognize and foster beauty and well-being in others.
