About The French Lemon
Some of the most beautiful things in life are born out of chaos, and an involuntary retrenchment for Kara-Leigh Baker in 2017 was the catalyst that propelled the dynamic mother and daughter duo, Vanessa Ralston and Kara-Leigh, to pursue their passion for natural and organic products by creating The French Lemon. The brand was fuelled by the adoption of their beloved Russian-born bulldog, Ian, who has not only become the inspiration behind The French Lemon, but also the face on their environmentally-friendly packaging.
What started out as a pursuit to become purveyors of preserved lemons and other lemon edibles for mom Vanessa and daughter Kara-Leigh soon evolved into the passionate production of 100% natural, vegan and animal-friendly bath and body products. Three years later, their fledgling business has become a profitable venture that has created employment and skills development for their team of ten, as well as established a respected and reputable proudly South African cruelty-free brand.
Their Bath & Body Products
As more people call for better ethical practices, Vanessa and Kara-Leigh, together with The French Lemon team, are continually developing, trying and testing products that cleanse, nourish, moisturise and soothe skin from head to toe.
The French Lemon embodies an ethos of kindness and compassion. Their entire collection is SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) free. The French Lemon uses coconut as a natural alternative foaming agent and their products contain kaolin clay, coconut oil and shea butter. The collection is also free of palm oil, and they do not support deforestation. Even their packaging is bio-degradable!
The French Lemon has branched out into DIY scrub and lotion stations for events and parties; where the handmade process is shared with guests, who can build their own bath bombs and create signature soaps and scrubs.
The ultimate gifting solution, and a different and “green” take on soaps, scrubs, salts and scents, there is something for everyone at The French Lemon. The French Lemon Collection is available exclusively online at www.frenchlemon.co.za.
Flattening The Curve
In an attempt to flatten the curve during the COVID-19 outbreak, The French Lemon joins the nationwide crusade to safeguard the health and well-being of all South Africans with an anti-bacterial collection of lotions, soaps, gels and hand sanitisers. Continually developing, trying and testing products that cleanse, nourish, moisturise and soothe skin, The French Lemon have now branched into sanitising skin too.
The Anti-Bacterial Collection includes lemon oil with its antiseptic and refreshing properties, peppermint oil for its microbial properties, bergamot oil for its prevention of infection with antibiotic properties and tea tree oil for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.
- With an anti-bacterial lotion that not only cleanses but also hydrates, this luxurious lotion is comprised of hemp oil, shea and cocoa butter, as well as cleansing essential oils to keep germs at bay.
- Their anti-bacterial liquid Castile soap is gentle on your skin, and whilst it cleanses, it also restores moisture, and won’t leave your skin dry, thanks to the anti-bacterial essential oils.
- The hand sanitiser gel is certain to say goodbye to germs and bacteria, with an anti-bacterial combination of aloe vera gel, alcohol, anti-fungal and antiviral essential oils.
During this very uncertain time, washing hands regularly prevents germs from spreading, and is the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent bacteria from spreading.
