LYKKEGAARD

Skincare products should be natural in their composition as well as straightforward in their application. LYKKEGAARD is based on a strong belief that everyone is entitled to feel healthy and confident in their own skin. Which is exactly why we developed our skincare line.

A Little Happiness

for your skin

 

LYKKEGAARD was chosen as the name for our skincare brand because I want to bring a little skin happiness to everyone’s daily life. The brand name is the same as my family name and includes the Danish word lykke which translates to happiness, luck or fortune.

Skincare For Generations

Why pure, natural skincare is so important at every stage in life became apparent to me as I closely observed the struggles each generation of my family had and still has.

At the age of 28, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was scared and confused. At the same time, I had to undergo an abortion as a consequence of the radiation treatment. Like many other women going through breast cancer, I had fertility concerns. I wanted to have children in the future. Today, I feel blessed because I now have a son and three daughters. I realized how harmful chemicals in cosmetic products are affecting the risk of cancer. My daughters have inspired me to create cleaner and safer certified products with natural and organic ingredients for women of all ages.

My mother’s generation was not properly educated until their late adulthood about skin health and skin damage such as done by environmental pollution, chemicals in products and sunlight exposure because society just did not have the same knowledge we have today.

This is why, today, my mother faces problems with her skin such as age spots quite likely caused by insufficient protection of her skin to environmental conditions.

Two of my four children on the other hand developed severe skin allergies early on in their lives. It became very difficult for me and my husband Stig to find suitable skin care for them, because at that time, clean, organic products rarely existed.

LYKKEGAARD was created to offer a natural yet luxurious skincare line for everyone. Our brand is following very strict standards in regards to ingredients, quality and sustainability to make sure our customers’ trust is well-invested.

I have experienced sensitivity and sometimes even allergic reactions in response to some skincare products I have used in the past. Therefore it is very important for me to use products with trusted certifications.

Due to my sensitive skin type, it has always been difficult to find skincare products that are both clean and of a good quality.
