Hi, I'm Amy!
I'm the one-woman show behind the scenes of Lisse. Whether you're dabbling in the idea of making the switch to a Safety Razor or have already taken the plunge, I'm so happy you're here!
Why did I start Lisse?
By 2050 it's predicted there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish. So initially, the environment was my biggest driver to start dabbling in the world of safety razors. What I didn't realize though was how much of a better shave it was, I couldn't believe it had taken me so long to make the switch!
Women's shaving needed a serious upgrade...My friends all know me as a beauty product guru. My bathroom is full of beautiful skin and hair products and yet when it came to my razor, well it kind of sucked! Barbie pink plastic with a built-in (toxic!) moisturizing bar, so I wanted to make it better, men have sooo many amazing shaving options, why can't women?!
From routine to ritual...
I'm a serial shaver! My hair grows super quick so I would shave mindlessly 5-6 times a week, it was kind of a chore. The biggest change I've noticed is that I now actually find pleasure in shaving. Getting out my beautiful rose gold razor and luxurious oils, shaving has become more of a self-care ritual than a 'must-do'.
Clean and cruelty-free
Always! What goes on your skin ends up in your body so I've always favoured clean and toxic-free ingredients. And being an animal lover and doggy owner, our products will always be cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny approved.
Giving backI'm a big believer that business should be used as a force for good which is why every razor sale supports Femme International who empower young women through health and menstrual education in East Africa. Our goal for May is to raise enough money to sponsor 5 young ladies through the Femme program to equip them with the supplies and confidence they need so they’ll never have to skip school because of a period ever again.
If there's anything I can do to help your transition over to sustainable beauty options, don't hesitate to reach out. I love receiving mail, even if it's the electronic kind! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lisse means "smooth" in French, I often get asked!
