LAPONIE LAB: SIDESTREAM INGREDIENTS

We strive to use as locally and sustainably produced ingredients as possible, focusing on quality, safety and efficacy of our products. In our formulations, we also use a few ingredients that are actually sidestreams from other industries, such as poppy seed oil and raspberry seed oil.



POPPY SEED OIL
Our poppy seed oil, used in our Face Cream, is a 100% UK product, fully traceable and with a sustainable supply chain: the oil is a pharmaceutical byproduct. Our chemist Jaana has actually met the guy living next to the field of poppies from which the oil is harvested by a 5th generation family farm. The oil is obtained by lightly pressing the seeds of the White Poppy.

The poppy seed oil is a virgin oil, containing sterols and Vitamin E, and with a high linoleic acid content. Poppy seed oil has excellent skin barrier recovery properties, and is especially suitable for sensitive skin.

RASPBERRY OIL
The coldpressed and organic raspberry oil we use in our Face Oil is a sidestream ingredient from the juice industry. The oil contains a large amount of linoleic and alpha linolenic acids, along with vitamin e. Among its central benefits is its ability to soothe skin and it may also be useful for treating eczema.
