When Peter Lamas set out to create his all natural, vegan beauty product line, it was after experiencing several tragedies at the hands of harsh chemicals. His mother was diagnosed with bone cancer after years of exposure to harsh chemicals at a paper mill and his three sisters were all diagnosed with breast cancer in their 40’s after regular exposure to chemical farm fertilizers. As the hairdresser for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, he regularly dyed her hair, only to find out that her doctors believed that her early diagnosis of, and ultimate demise from, Non-Hodgkins lymphoma cancer was partly due to the chemicals from her hair dye. After further research, Lamas discovered that hair stylist and nail technicians, among other beauty salon employees, are more likely to develop the same bone cancer that afflicted his mother due to frequent exposure to associated chemicals.
It was these experiences and knowledge that shaped what would become the Peter Lamas vegan beauty product line. Committed to a line that is made from ingredients that are naturally occurring from the earth, Lamas developed hair and skincare lines that are free from paraben, petrochemicals and other harmful ingredients that are commonly found in similar items. The company is also 100% committed to their ingredients and final products being cruelty-free. As they state on their website, if you are committed to only using ingredients that have been proven and used for centuries, there is no need for concern about putting them on our bodies.
