how natural are your products?
over 95 percent. the rest are plant identical ingredients (such as our vitamin c) or naturally certified preservatives.
i've heard oils are comedogenic - is your product going to clog my pores?
most oils are comedogenic. however, the formulation and the quality of the ingredients used are the important factors in how the oil functions. that's why we choose only the best ingredients and work with highly skilled formulators to produce products that are formulated for your skin, that dont clog your pores. for example, our coconut oil is high quality and organic.

all our products have a 2 year shelf life. They should be used within 6 months of opening. please keep out of direct sunlight.
your product should last about 6-8 weeks with regular use. you should see results within 4 weeks (however, pigmentation can be a longer process).
how are your ingredients sourced and are they organic?
some of our ingredients are organic. the majority of our ingredients are certified to international standards. all our products are vegan and cruelty free.
a lot of our oils and other natural ingredients are from africa, but ingredients like hyaluronic acid are from abroad.
all ingredients are high quality and traceable back to the farmer.
do you use essential oils?
we use high quality essential oils in some of our products - but in quantities less than 0.25% total. this is well below recommended guidelines and safe.
you say your product is clean but some contain alcohols?
we use cosmos-certified alcohols derived from plants and in extremely small quantities (less than 0,25% of a product if used).
after applying your serum, squeeze it out, rub it in and let it sink in.
for the best results apply liberally at night and let it go to work while you rest.

So glad I took a chance on Lelive. Amazing product. Sensitive on skin, I'm glowing. So proud it's locally made! 🇿🇦🏹
OMG this is what I have been looking for all this years. Because I struggle with dry skin especially in winter. Thank you for making this. And I just received another order yesterday, the Jelly splash and serum oh I'm in heavennnn
Needed a rich moisturizer for winter that wouldn't cause breakouts and this is THE ONE! It's not oily yet extremely rich and the fact that it's all natural and locally makes it all the more special!
I can finally say I found a product made especially for me. Within a week I could see changes on my skin. Thank you very much lelive
This is honestly the best moisturiser! It's not as thick as I thought it would be and it's not oily at all! I've always hated going to bed when my skin feels sticky or thick with products and if I end my night time routine with this cream, it leaves it feeling so soft and there's none of that sticky feeling. I feel comfortable putting my skin on my pillow now!
