About Simplicité Natural Skin Care
Welcome to Simplicité
Simplicité Natural Skin Care is an ethical skin care brand renowned for results since 1992. Our gentle, luxurious and highly nutritive products give magnificent skin at any age.
Why is Simplicité different?
Simplicité isn't just another natural or organic skin care range. "Natural' and 'organic' have nothing to do with the quality and strength of herbal extracts. We make ours freshly from medicinal grade quality plants for each batch of 45 products. This is unique.
Our freshly made products must be experienced, not just for their beautiful feel and subtle plant aromas, but also for the results they give for practically any skin concern, including early ageing, sun damage, sensitivity, redness, hyperpigmentation, congestion and acne.
Simplicité is the go-to if you’re tired of using skin care that doesn’t work; if you’ve struggled with your skin and perhaps even thought ‘it will always be like this’.
Why do Simplicité products give satisfying results?
Each different Simplicité product contains a large volume of a specific combination of David's highest activity, concentrated and pure plant extracts. He chooses each grouping of between 5 and 15 extracts for their similar benefits - all nutritive and rejuvenating but also particularly firming, soothing, balancing and so on.
The naturopath, herbalist who saves skin
Simplicité nutritive and natural skin care products are based on Herbalist and Naturopath David Lyons’ clinical naturopathic work since 1983 and his seven years prior to that treating skin cancer and sun damaged skin at Royal Brisbane Hospital.
David began treating skin complaints in the mid-1970s. He quickly gained a clinical reputation as ‘the naturopath who could help’. Because he was unhappy about the quality of available natural skin care he made his own formulations of herbal remedies and medicinal creams to treat conditions such as sun damage, acne and premature ageing.
Synergy of Simplicité
No particular extract in a Simplicité product is a star. The star is the synergy of each of David's plant extract combinations.
The particular extracts he combines in every synergistic combination work together to produce a combined effect (result for skin) that is greater than any one (or a few) can achieve.
Regular and sustained use of these highly nutritive products strengthens skin and gives it the nutrients it needs to easily resist and overcome common issues.
And that is how you can feel happy about your skin at any age.
Saving a TV news presenter's skin
In the late 1980s David met then top TV newsreader and journalist Robin - and literally saved her skin. David prescribed Robin his early clinic version of the top selling Simplicité product Damask Rose Day Creme. Patches of red sensitive skin on Robin’s face that had troubled her for months vanished overnight. David says, “She’d stripped and dried out her skin by long term use of harsh skin care products. Her TV job with its stress and heavy makeup didn't help. Then she came to see me as a patient, used my cream instead of the steroid that hadn't worked - her skin recovered in no time.”
David and Robin hit it off and married a few years later, by which time they were making nutrient-rich Simplicité products, just for themselves initially. But word spread about the beautiful-to-use skin care that gave results and soon Simplicité was sold in department stores and beauty therapists were giving Simplicité treatments.
Robin and David both have the glowing, clear skin that is typical of their customers' results and exemplifies their promise of 'beautiful skin at any age'.
The Simplicité wild bush farm
David and Robin live in Brisbane, Australia as do their sons Will and Harry who also work with Simplicité in operations and product management.
The family spend as much time as possible at the Simplicite Wild Bush Farm. This is their 40-hectare rural property in the Lockyer Valley that adjoins a little-known world-heritage listed national park containing Gondwana remnant forest.
Some of the 100+ Simplicité wild crafted (naturally grown) plant extracts are sourced from this property.
