We are the first to incorporate this miracle natural into skincare.

Is the Heart to Heart Complex™ some kind of miracle?

We sure think so! Every day we hear the incredible things our products are doing for people (Welcome back, self-esteem! Good to see you again, confidence! Goodbye, prescriptions!) and we feel so grateful that we can provide it to you all ☺

Why do you use coconut oil and petroleum? Aren't these bad?

The short answer: Both ingredients have developed a negative image and reputation about safety, toxicity, and efficacy for no clinically-substantiated reason! This has overshadowed the excellent protective, emollient, and nourishing abilities of both ingredients. The key is to use the correct forms of both ingredients, which we always make sure to do! The type of Coconut Oil we formulate with has been shown in double-blind clinical studies to be non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging). The type of Petrolatum we formulate with is Medical-Grade USP 100% White Petrolatum Jelly, meaning it is certified 100% pure, and contains no PAHs or other contaminants or toxins. It is certified non-carcinogenic by the NTP, IARC, OSHA, and GHS. We recognize that many people see petroleum-byproducts as problematic, and we hear you. We figure that as this is a natural and unavoidable byproduct of these processes, it is better to put them to use than incur the environmental ramifications of the waste and disposal of them!

 

Now, here is the long answer ☺

Coconut Oil: In all of our products we use unrefined, virgin coconut oil, meaning it is unprocessed and has no contaminants. In double-blind clinical studies, this type of coconut oil has been found to be non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores). The original, most-cited clinical testing on the comedogenicity of coconut oil was done in 1968 on rabbit ears, which are not equivalent to nor indicative of human use. These studies have long been discredited!

Additionally, the lauric acid content of coconut oil is also known to be anti-microbial, in fact fighting the bacteria acne comes from (P. acnes) at a strength higher than benzoyl peroxide! We include coconut oil in our products because of its incredible non-volatile fatty acid content, which is excellent for dry skin and irritated skin, and also for its high level of naturally-occuring antioxidants. ⁣

Petroleum: Our petroleum is certified USP-grade White Petroleum, which means it is guaranteed 100%-pure pharmaceutical-grade with no contaminants or toxicity, unlike the unfiltered cousin of petroleum, mineral oil. It is obtained by fractional distillation of petroleum followed by multiple purification steps to ensure 100% purity.

It is also certified non-carcinogenic by the NTP, IARC, OSHA, and GHS. Our petrolatum does not contain any PAHs, and is not an ingredient to be concerned about!

A key consideration with petroleum is how it is used in conjunction with other ingredients/products. When petroleum jelly is used entirely by itself, with nothing applied to the skin beforehand or alongside it, it simply creates an occlusive layer over the skin. This is great for protecting the skin while it heals, and creates the feeling of supple, hydrated skin. However, beneath this occlusive layer it is not actually hydrating the skin, as the molecule size of petroleum is too large to fit inside of pores (meaning it is also absolutely non-comedogenic!). However, when formulated into a cohesive product with other ingredients that properly hydrate the skin at the same time, like Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane, Glycerin, or various oils, petroleum forms a very light occlusive layer over the hydrating effects of these ingredients. This essentially locks-in all the hydration and moisture, and forms a protective barrier for the skin! This has huge benefits for all skin concerns, especially for anyone trying to heal their skin.

We recognize that many people see petroleum-byproducts as problematic, and we hear you. We figure that as this is a natural and unavoidable byproduct of these processes, it is better to put them to use than incur the environmental ramifications of the waste and disposal of them!

Can I use my L'AMARUE alongside actives like Vitamin C or retinol?

You bet! All of our products are absolutely fine to use in conjunction with other active ingredients.

If you have very sensitive skin, or just want to be extra safe (we always like this approach ☺), we recommend phasing in your L'AMARUE. Simply ramp up usage by adding it in every other day, or a few days a week at first. Then, increase the frequency of use. This will just help acclimate your skin, and will help manage any sensitivities you may have!

Do you have samples?

We do not currently have sample sizes, but keep your eyes out for smaller sizes coming very soon (yay! ☺). Make sure to sign up for our newsletter to be notified once new products are available.

What is DIM?

Scientifically, DIM is know as 3'3 Diindolylmethane, but just call it DIM like its friends do ☺

It has been extensively studied for its incredible anti-inflammatory, hormone-balancing, and anti-cancer properties. When used systemically, DIM is has been shown to fight cystic acne and shows positive results and chemo-preventative properties against a wide variety of estrogen-related ailments and illnesses including PMS, PCOS, estrogen dominance, breast, ovarian and prostate cancers, endometriosis, and many others. Along with this, it shows the ability to speed up the healing of inflamed/damaged epithelial (skin) cells!

It is also the patent-pending key to our Heart to Heart Complex™, and a L'AMARUE-exclusive hero

Why can't I buy the Heart to Heart Complex™ by itself?

Because of the complex formulation process of our Heart to Heart Complex™, it wouldn't be as effective as it is inside of our products (they're formulated with ingredients that are ideal for skin absorption!).

We sure think so! Every day we hear the incredible things our products are doing for people (Welcome back, self-esteem! Good to see you again, confidence! Goodbye, prescriptions!) and we feel so grateful that we can provide it to you all ☺

Congratulations! ☺

Yes, our products are safe to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. However, if you have concerns we of course recommend you speak to your doctor before starting use of any new products (not just ours!) when you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The main component of our Heart to Heart Complex™ is DIM (3’3 diindolylmethane) which is a natural derivative of vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. In its supplement form, DIM it is still safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and in our products your body receives a fraction of the amount you would safely ingest via a supplement.

All of our other ingredients have certified EWG ratings of 1-2, meaning they are non-toxic, show no indications of carcinogenic activity, and are safe for daily use.

The main component of our Heart to Heart Complex™ is DIM (3’3 diindolylmethane) which is a natural derivative of vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. Our products contain a fractional amount of what is typically safely ingested via a supplement form of DIM or naturally by eating your veggies!

Since both men and women have estrogen and testosterone (simply in different amounts and for different purposes), DIM is highly effective for men as well, since hormone balance is as important for men as it is for women. DIM does not add any hormones or get rid of hormones that you need, but rather promotes levels of the necessary, good ones and blocks your body’s usage of unnecessary, bad ones. For this reason, many men use DIM in supplementation – in fact it's very popular in body building training!

Products

What L'AMARUE product(s) is best for me?

Great question! Typically we recommend products based on location: The Body Cream for almost everything not related to facial skin, The Face Cream for generalized concerns related to facial skin, and The Eye Cream for delicate areas like the under-eyes or as a "spot-treatment". Check out The Set for the full bundle of these three products (+ a discount! ☺).

Sometimes, depending on the person or concern, we might recommend a different routine (for example: if you have localized facial scarring we might recommend The Eye Cream as a concentrated "spot-treatment"!).

Skin is very personal and unique to everyone, so go with your gut. However, we are also always here to help! Feel free to reach out to us either via team@shoplamarue.com or on our Skin Chat text line anytime and we'll recommend what we think is best based on what we hear from customers like you!

Are your products safe to use if I am pregnant/breastfeeding?

Congratulations! ☺

Yes, our products are safe to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. However, if you have concerns we of course recommend you speak to your doctor before starting use of any new products (not just ours!) when you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The main component of our Heart to Heart Complex™ is DIM (3’3 diindolylmethane) which is a natural derivative of vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. In its supplement form, DIM it is still safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and in our products your body receives a fraction of the amount you would safely ingest via a supplement.

All of our other ingredients have certified EWG ratings of 1-2, meaning they are non-toxic, show no indications of carcinogenic activity, and are safe for daily use.

Are your products safe for kids and teens?

Yes, our products are safe for kiddos and teenagers alike!

The main component of our Heart to Heart Complex™ is DIM (3’3 diindolylmethane) which is a natural derivative of vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. Our products contain a fractional amount of what is typically safely ingested via a supplement form of DIM or naturally by eating your veggies!

Are your products safe for men and boys?

Since both men and women have estrogen and testosterone (simply in different amounts and for different purposes), DIM is highly effective for men as well, since hormone balance is as important for men as it is for women. DIM does not add any hormones or get rid of hormones that you need, but rather promotes levels of the necessary, good ones and blocks your body’s usage of unnecessary, bad ones. For this reason, many men use DIM in supplementation – in fact it's very popular in body building training!

All of our other ingredients have certified EWG ratings of 1-2, meaning they are non-toxic, show no indications of carcinogenic activity, and are safe for daily use.

Can I use my L'AMARUE alongside actives like Vitamin C or retinol?

You bet! All of our products are absolutely fine to use in conjunction with other active ingredients.

If you have very sensitive skin, or just want to be extra safe (we always like this approach ☺), we recommend phasing in your L'AMARUE. Simply ramp up usage by adding it in every other day, or a few days a week at first. Then, increase the frequency of use. This will just help acclimate your skin, and will help manage any sensitivities you may have!

All of our products are free of toxic, endocrine-disrupting, and unsafe ingredients and packaging.

Why do you use coconut oil and petroleum? Aren't these bad?

The short answer: Both ingredients have developed a negative image and reputation about safety, toxicity, and efficacy for no clinically-substantiated reason! This has overshadowed the excellent protective, emollient, and nourishing abilities of both ingredients. The key is to use the correct forms of both ingredients, which we always make sure to do! The type of Coconut Oil we formulate with has been shown in double-blind clinical studies to be non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging). The type of Petrolatum we formulate with is Medical-Grade USP 100% White Petrolatum Jelly, meaning it is certified 100% pure, and contains no PAHs or other contaminants or toxins. It is certified non-carcinogenic by the NTP, IARC, OSHA, and GHS. We recognize that many people see petroleum-byproducts as problematic, and we hear you. We figure that as this is a natural and unavoidable byproduct of these processes, it is better to put them to use than incur the environmental ramifications of the waste and disposal of them!

 

Now, here is the long answer ☺

Coconut Oil: In all of our products we use unrefined, virgin coconut oil, meaning it is unprocessed and has no contaminants. In double-blind clinical studies, this type of coconut oil has been found to be non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores). The original, most-cited clinical testing on the comedogenicity of coconut oil was done in 1968 on rabbit ears, which are not equivalent to nor indicative of human use. These studies have long been discredited!

Additionally, the lauric acid content of coconut oil is also known to be anti-microbial, in fact fighting the bacteria acne comes from (P. acnes) at a strength higher than benzoyl peroxide! We include coconut oil in our products because of its incredible non-volatile fatty acid content, which is excellent for dry skin and irritated skin, and also for its high level of naturally-occuring antioxidants. ⁣

Petroleum: Our petroleum is certified USP-grade White Petroleum, which means it is guaranteed 100%-pure pharmaceutical-grade with no contaminants or toxicity, unlike the unfiltered cousin of petroleum, mineral oil. It is obtained by fractional distillation of petroleum followed by multiple purification steps to ensure 100% purity.

It is also certified non-carcinogenic by the NTP, IARC, OSHA, and GHS. Our petrolatum does not contain any PAHs, and is not an ingredient to be concerned about!

A key consideration with petroleum is how it is used in conjunction with other ingredients/products. When petroleum jelly is used entirely by itself, with nothing applied to the skin beforehand or alongside it, it simply creates an occlusive layer over the skin. This is great for protecting the skin while it heals, and creates the feeling of supple, hydrated skin. However, beneath this occlusive layer it is not actually hydrating the skin, as the molecule size of petroleum is too large to fit inside of pores (meaning it is also absolutely non-comedogenic!). However, when formulated into a cohesive product with other ingredients that properly hydrate the skin at the same time, like Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane, Glycerin, or various oils, petroleum forms a very light occlusive layer over the hydrating effects of these ingredients. This essentially locks-in all the hydration and moisture, and forms a protective barrier for the skin! This has huge benefits for all skin concerns, especially for anyone trying to heal their skin.

We recognize that many people see petroleum-byproducts as problematic, and we hear you. We figure that as this is a natural and unavoidable byproduct of these processes, it is better to put them to use than incur the environmental ramifications of the waste and disposal of them!
