Peter Lamas's mother worked as a bookkeeper in a paper mill. The offices there seemed to always be covered in a thin layer of dust from the cardboard and paper formulation. His mother often wore a mask over her nose and mouth at work to keep from breathing the dust. Peter Lamas recalled reading once, towards the end of her career, that people who worked in such places had a higher risk of developing multiple myloma (bone cancer) than the general population due to the chemicals used in the manufacturing process. Shortly after she retired, his mother was diagnosed with terminal multiple myloma.
Then there were three close family friends -- three sisters in their 40's -- all were diagnosed with breast cancer within a year of each other. Their doctors advised them that common chemical fertilizers the women had regularly been exposed to growing up on a farm, probably played a central role in their getting the disease.
There have been studies that show beauty salon workers, like hair stylists and nail technicians, are five times more likely to develop multiple myloma than the general public.
And then there was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, a client for whom Peter did hair and frequently applied hair dye. Ms. Kennedy died too young from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer. Her doctors have stated publicly they believe her hair dye probably contributed to causing her cancer.
These experiences, and many others, were epiphanies for Peter. They created a personal awareness of the frightening reality that many common products especially health and beauty products which we all apply to our hair, skin, teeth and bodies -- can have devastating consequences for our long-term health.
Equally alarming, he discovered that little regulation exists in the beauty industry, and that many of the products on the shelf of your local department store, beauty salon or supermarket contain irritating and harmful ingredients, even known carcinogens.
It was with this hard-learned perspective and a drive to research all he could about health, beauty and ingredients that he founded Lamas Beauty Products. Although they remain motivated to keep up on the latest beauty and fashion trends, they are even more adamant about remaining aware of the latest scientific issues surrounding beauty ingredients and safety. Lamas strives to stay ahead of the curve, using the most innovative technologies the industry has to offer. Their aim is to create high performance products to deliver stunning results that last - and that support a healthy life and lifestyle.
Since its inception, Lamas Beauty Products has been vegan -- they have never used animal by-products or animal testing. The Lamas hair care line was one of the first ever to be paraben-free and sodium lauryl sulphate-free. All Lamas Beauty products are paraben and petrochemical-free.
Each product uses a synergy of exotic extracts, powerful botanicals and potent herbs to enhance all skin and hair types. This company is committed to offering natural and organic products that are free of harmful chemicals and perform to a professional standard. Lamas Beauty unites nature and healthy science for effective products that deliver on their promise.

Peter Lamas is committed to creating natural and organic products that are free of harmful chemicals and perform to a professional standard.
With over 30 years experience in the beauty industry, there are very few people who have the sort of knowledge and experience Peter Lamas possesses. Peter has seen firsthand the detrimental effect that chemicals, additives and abrasives, found in many skin and hair care products, have on people. The long-term impact of using harsh chemicals can do permanent damage to the very thing you're seeking to enhance. At the most, some of these chemicals are quite toxic and known carcinogens. The skin is the body's largest organ, and it is incredibly permeable. Every product you use isn't simply sitting on your skin, it is absorbed and enters your system.
It is with this understanding that Peter became committed to creating his own line of vegan and organic products - free of harsh chemicals. Each product is formulated with Certified Organic botanicals and natural ingredients shown to heal, not harm. Dry, brittle, lifeless hair regains its luster and strength. Dull, damaged skin becomes revitalized and refreshed.
All Lamas Products are 100% vegan. They ensure their products do not contain harmful chemicals or unnecessary additives by emphasizing the use of natural ingredients and Certified Organic botanicals. The entire collection is paraben-free, petrochemical-free and SLS-free - for organic products that deliver on their promise.
Lamas Botanicals is committed to offering premium products that are free of any animal ingredients. Additionally, the company does not test their products on animals - they do not want to, or need to. The natural ingredients in their products are safe, nourishing, and have been used by humans for centuries.
Chemicals are cheap and abundant, which is why most companies use them. The natural ingredients used in all Peter Lamas products are premium, more costly and difficult to obtain. Although they use the finest ingredients currently available, Lamas Beauty also strives to keep their prices as competitive as possible to be able to offer you high-quality products at a reasonable price.

I love this cream. It is light and non greasy and just a small pat moisturizes my whole face beautifully. If I had more druthers the SPF would be higher but the quality is wonderful.
