Our cream base
Love for our Skin, for our Body and for our Environment!
Lakshmi has been created to offer beauty products in harmony with Nature. The stress of modern life, pollution, and the use of aggressive cosmetics are the main causes of skin aging and health problems. For this reason LAKSHMI offers exclusively natural products made of healthy, safe, reliable and effective vegetal components.
Absolute quality. The fundamental priciples of superior quality
Lakshmi’s natural cosmetics are pure and highly nourishing; they keep the skin fresh and vital because they are made with raw materials supplied by the laboratory of Mother Nature: herbs, seeds, flowers, fruits and products from bees. Our products are very rich in all the most precious substances offered by nature like: Shea butter, aloe vera, jojoba, sesame, centella asiatica, rose, myrrh and essential oils
Lakshmi’s creams are based on wheat germ liposomes. Liposomes are phospholipids which have a great affinity with our skin. Liposomes have a very minute molecular structure that allows them to carry water and nutrients to the dermis (deepest layer where wrinkles form), effectively fighting the formation of wrinkles and dehydration.
Lakshmi follows the precious instructions of the millenary wisdom of Ayurveda to process sesame oil and in the use of particular herbal extracts such as, Shatavari, Aswagandha, Haritaki, Gotu Kola. Lakshmi’s products are created specifically for the doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha, to create an internal balance fundamental for health and beauty.
GLYCERIC HERBAL EXTRACTS
Lakshmi is the first company in Italy to introduce extracts obtained with certified vegetable glycerine and is using them to replace the glycolic extracts obtained with propylene glycol. The glyceric extracts are obtained using organically cultivated plants.
IN TOTO EXTRACTS.
We use “in toto” extracts, scientifically called BIOSOMES. Biosomes are a combination of both the active and non-active parts of the plant. Generally only the active components of a plant are extracted to prepare cosmetic products. When the delicate balance between active and non-active components is broken the effectiveness is no longer based on harmony and therefore unpleasant side effects may arise.
PURE ESSENTIAL OILS
The fragrance of the products is obtained by using natural essential oils which amplify the effectiveness of the product. The essential oils used are 100% pure and natural, obtained through low-pressure distillation in order to preserve all their energy.
CERTIFIED ACTIVE PRINCIPLES
Lakshmi adopts new natural high performance active principles, certified as organic, developed by scientific research toward new frontiers in the field of vegetable products. Lakshmi uses new vegetable biopolymer compounds that make its product extraordinarily effective in total respect of the environment.
The delicate colour of our products is given by the natural components: curcuma, henna, chlorophyll and aloe vera. For this reason the delicate colour of our products may change in time.
The effectiveness of our products is the result of synergies (combined effects) of plants, essential oils and vegetable oils. The beneficial effects are achieved thanks to the enhanced activity of a component when combined with others with a similar or complementary action.
Lakshmi uses grapefruit seed extract, glycine soja, vitamins A, E, C, and essential oils. Grapefruit seed extract diluted in certified vegetable glycerine is a natural preservative without any negative side effects; it is actually very beneficial for the skin. Research carried out in the USA has shown that it can be beneficial for many skin problems.
All vegetable oils such as sesame oil, wheat germ oil, and jojoba oil are cold pressed to preserve all their properties. Lakshmi does not use animal fats, mineral oils or petroleum derivates as they have no affinity with the skin.
The “natural moisturization factor” (nmf) commonly used in cosmetics is not usually natural. LAKSHMI products contain an unbeatable and 100 % natural moisturizing factor made up of aloe vera juice, mucilage of mallow and althea. It offers superb moisturization.
Lakshmi products have the same ph as the skin.
Lakshmi does NOT use animal fats or mineral oils or petroleum, as they have no affinity with the skin. Neither the finished product nor any of the ingredients used are tested on animals. We are against genetic manipulation (GMO).
You can add a drop of essential oil of rose..or neroli..or jasmine or a drop of the essential oil you prefer and is most suitable for your skin to the creams.

You will always have a fresh and pleasant fragrance!
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
There are natural and precious substances which are necessary for the health and beauty of our skin and body and they are called: “essential fatty acids” Cell membranes are mainly made up of “essential fatty acids” which our body does not produce. They can only be found in cold pressed vegetable oils and herbs and play a fundamental role in cell regeneration. In fact they are very important to prevent wrinkles and skin aging. “Essential fatty acids” are destroyed by hot pressing processes and are not found in animal substances, synthetic substances, petroleum derivatives or mineral oil.This is one of the secrets behind the extraordinary effectiveness of our products.
