About Lepo Cosmetics
Lepo is a subsidiary of Pedrini Cosmetici Ltd, which was founded in 1984. From the very beginning we devoted ourselves to the promotion of a culture of higher awareness in the field of all natural cosmetics, exploration of the world of nature and ways of respecting the environment. It was natural for us to be inspired by the ingredients typical of the Mediterranean, one of the richest "suppliers" of vegetal substances with remarkable characteristics, such as olive oil, sweet almond, bergamot and tangerine, as well as by the ancient recipes of the Italian tradition.
Our first product was the pH-sensitive color changing lipstick, which we called Lepo, a word which means 'waves of beauty" in ancient Chinese. Lepo is now the brand name of over 200 natural cosmetics for make-up, face and body treatments, suncare and hygiene.
We have made great strides in formulating products, all rigorously and scientifically tested, in our search for new natural raw materials, in the development of new ranges of cosmetics designed to meet the demands of today's consumers, and in the production process, using the latest non-polluting technology.
Lepo is a range of cosmetics totally formulated with natural ingredients. In 2005 we completed the renewal of the whole range of products for cleansing, regeneration, treatment and make-up with products formulated with organic ceramides and vegetal extracts, presented in new, more sophisticated packaging.
The philosophy of Lepo is summed up in it's "Ten Commandments", among which are 1) products are made using high quantities of extremely pure vegetal substances and their derivatives. 2) non-vegetal ingredients are natural of origin and include pigments and mineral substances and substances from bees 3) Lepo products do not contain propellent hydrocarbons or products derived from petroleum 4) Lepo products are NEVER tested on animals; Lepo products are controlled and certified by ICEA (Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification) and LAV (anti-vivisection league) 5) ingredients from bees does not involve their suppression 6) Lepo cosmetics are clinically tested on humans over a long period of time to assure safety and effectiveness 7) products are subjected to stringents tests to assure safety and stability 8) products are subjected to rigorous biological testing 9) products are healthy 10) products contain no known allergens.
