About Lani

Founded in May 2014, Lani has become well established in the green beauty scene. The brand stands for affordable, natural, vegan, cruelty-free skin and hair care made with delicious tropical ingredients.

All products are packaged into glass bottles and jars, are made with high quality, food-grade ingredients and are always free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, silicones, mineral oils and animal derived ingredients.

The Brand

Hand-made in Nottingham, England, the entire Lani range is produced in small batches every couple of weeks to maximize freshness.

Lani has gained a cult status among the vegan community as a brand that speaks passionately against animal cruelty and promotes cruelty-free living and natural and healthy lifestyle choices.

The brand regularly donates a percentage of profits to animal charities. Donations have so far been made to Animal Hope and Wellness, Sea Shepherd, Animal Aid Unlimited, Second Chance Animal Rescue, Brinsley Animal Rescue, Amicii Dog Rescue and Tower Hill Stables.

Throughout 2019 Lani will be donating 5% of profits to 11 different charities. The charity for June is Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary, a charity committed to caring for dogs, cats, equine and farm animals and small pets.

The Founder

My interest in cruelty-free, vegan and natural products started after I made the transition to a vegan lifestyle in 2013. I became more conscious of what I was putting on my skin and hair and no longer wanted to use products with unrecognisable ingredients that may have also been tested on animals. I’ve always loved using oils on my skin and hair so the first product I made was an oil blend which I used as a hair mask. I fell in love with the results, so I made a bigger batch and handed it to friends and family who loved it just as much as me. It became the bestselling Tropical Hair Treatment and it was this product that inspired me to found Lani in May 2014.

All my love, Viola


Why @krueltyfreekelly is in love with our Night Serum...🌙👇⁣
'...Its key ingredients are dusk blooming jasmine, passionfruit oil, and olive squalane. Some of its claims are to hydrate the skin, reduce appearance of wrinkles, and balance oily/combo skin. This serum smells amazing, possibly fruity? The consistency is a bit thicker than some serums I've tried but it feels really lovely and not greasy. It absorbs into the skin pretty quickly, especially when I use it in conjunction with my facial roller. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and more plump and helps my skin appear more glowy. I can't attest to the other claims, as those aren't really my skin concerns. However, I think this is a wonderful serum and I definitely have noticed an improvement in my skin when using it💗'

We're drowning in plastic. Here's 10 shocking facts everyone should know...⁣
FACT #1⁣⁣
8.3 BILLION Metric Tons of plastic has been produced since plastic was introduced in the 1950s. The amount of plastic produced in a year is roughly the same as the entire weight of humanity. ⁣👨‍👩‍👧👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦⁣
FACT #2⁣⁣
Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated). ⁣⁣
FACT #3⁣⁣
91% of plastic waste isn’t recycled. And since most plastics don’t biodegrade in any meaningful sense, all that plastic waste could exist for hundreds or even thousands of years♻️⁣
FACT #4⁣⁣
500 MILLION plastic straws are used EVERY DAY in America. That’s enough to circle the Earth twice.🍹⁣
FACT #5⁣⁣
Nearly TWO MILLION single-use plastic bags are distributed worldwide every minute.⁣
FACT #6⁣⁣
100 BILLION plastic bags are used by Americans every year. Tied together, they would reach around the Earth’s equator 773 times!🌏⁣
FACT #7⁣⁣
ONE MILLION plastic bottles are bought EVERY MINUTE around the world — and that number will top half a TRILLION by 2021. Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled♻️⁣
FACT #8⁣⁣
8 MILLION METRIC TONS of plastic winds up in our oceans each year. That’s enough trash to cover every foot of coastline around the world with five full trash bags of plastic…compounding every year.🌊⁣
FACT #9⁣⁣
There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way🌌⁣
FACT #10⁣⁣
If plastic production isn’t curbed, plastic pollution will outweigh fish pound for pound by 2050.🐟

'I am in love! This cleanser smells so minty! Leaves the skin feeling so fresh and clean but so smooth and soft. Once you add water it feels so creamy. I love it and it has become a staple in my skincare routine. Minty creamy freshness!' Steph via lovelani.com 👀
Why glass is best...👇⁣
Certain types of plastic can leach into products, and some plastics can even be broken down over time by essential oils (this is also why perfume is always housed in glass). ⁣
Glass is also the perfect barrier against oxygen and light and ingredients such as antioxidants are very sensitive to both (some plastics are so thin that they’ll let light through). ⁣
Lastly, glass is easier to reuse and recycle and for sure looks prettier... ♻️
