MEET THE FOUNDER AND CEO OF LESTEEM
Ross Fraser is the founder and CEO of Lesteem, a cosmetic company based in Toronto, Canada. Ross was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland. He had sensitive skin and tried a lot of products that would be gentle enough for his skin, but no matter how many conventional and organic products he tried, he could never find anything that worked for him. It wasn't until he found this amazing product in Canada that is Vegan, 100% organic, and cruelty-free that he wanted to share with you.
Made with beeswax
Our products are handmade and crafted from all-natural ingredients. We add beeswax, an ingredient that has been used by humans for thousands of years, to help give our products a solid form without the need to use preservatives or chemicals. Our customers love the way our cosmetics make them look and feel because we use this iconic natural ingredient that's more expensive than alternatives but worth it for a healthier & more natural product formula.
Products made with beeswax are also great for helping to retain moisture and protect your skin. What's more, they give products a firm texture, so your lotions won't easily break down.
With our natural cosmetics we make healthy and beautiful natural beauty products that are made with cruelty-free formulation practices. All of our products are proudly Vegan, free from phthalates, GMOs and SLS. We also only use ingredients which come from ethical sources so every product you purchase helps to make the world a better place.
We're a certified cruelty-free brand. This means all of our products are made with cruelty-free formulation practices. "Cruelty-free" is defined as not testing on animals.
Custom vegan cosmetics
A growing number of consumers consider the treatment of animals when making their product choices. For PETA supporters, and those who don't want to contribute to the suffering caused to animals, we offer a select range of vegan products that contain no animal products. This means that they're cruelty-free and can additionally be certified as vegan by The Vegan Society. They use ingredients like artificial beeswax, natural oils, and other natural raw ingredients that don't rely on animals.
Vegan cosmetics contains ingredients such as soy bean wax, jojoba oil, and other natural raw ingredients that don't rely on animals. Our goal is to create hypoallergenic and cruelty-free skincare products are designed to moisturize and cleanse your skin without compromising your health.

Proudly made in Canada
There are hundreds of beauty companies located in the USA and Canada but their products are originally made in China. That is not us - we don't want to risk our customer's health for cheaper products. We are proud to say we make everything here in Canada using the finest and healthiest ingredients, including making our products right here in Canada. Manufacturing the fine product you see on this page costs significantly more than outsourcing to other countries, but we're doing it none-the-less because we understand that your health is a priority above profit.
