Brisbane based Lisa Egglestone, founder of Aequora, has always had a passion for design and her career for over 25 years was as an interior designer in London, England creating beautiful interiors and styling for photo shoots.
With her new skincare brand Aequora, she has developed a design focused range of products made with all natural and certified organic ingredients.
‘Since moving with my family to Australia I discovered a new passion – an appreciation and understanding of all things ‘natural’ coming from living on acreage in the beautiful Samford Valley in Queensland.
Native Botanical skincare
On our land, we rely on tank water and a bio system that cannot have chemicals pouring into it from our home. Household cleaning products need to be natural and chemical free and that started me thinking about the skincare products I was using. I also realised that living ‘down under’ and adapting to a more challenging climate meant that my skincare routine was going to play a more important role in my life.
I spent time studying and qualifying in organic skincare and essential oils in business and set about working alongside specialist formulators and chemists to produce my range of Native Botanical skincare.
Natural & Not Tested on Animals
Understanding that the epidermis (the outer layer of our skin) is our biggest living organ and that it absorbs what we put onto it made me realise I wanted to make the change over to natural and organic skincare.
Being a Mum, I also want the best for my daughter’s skin – and for her to learn and understand that expensive and glamorous marketing campaigns do not necessarily create a great product that is natural and not tested on animals.
And so, my journey with Aequora began – I hope you’ll enjoy using our skincare products as much as we do!
