Interview by Rachel Hansen
Growing up in southern Philippines, Lani learned at a tender age to love, appreciate and use the healing powers of Nature. She learned the importance of many herbs and plants growing around her - that each one has a meaning and a purpose for enhancement of health and beauty.
Moving to Sweden, Lani loved going to the Swedish woods to meditate and reload and oftentimes find inspiration, hope, strength and a deep sense of emotional and physical healing. With the help of Mother Earth and the various aroma essential oils she came to the belief that she can take care of herself and her three children as a single mother.
In the year 2016, after years of studies Lani became a licensed Aromatherapist and practitioner in Gothenburg, the second largest city in the west coast of Sweden. Her clinic offers various kinds of holistic treatments ranging from facials to massages and craniosacral therapy which she had learned along the way. The clinic also offers health consultations. Then it was time for Lani to take the biggest step in her life by launching a series of skin care beauty products which she named Vedessence.
What is Vedessence?
The word Vedessence is inspired by the Swedish word “ved” which means “wood” and “essence” which means the extract from the essential oils which are the main ingredients in the skin care products.
Vedessence is a plant based facial skin care with organic Moringa oil which is rich in vitamin C and Argan oils rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9, which is natural anti-oxidant and anti-aging. Combined with etheric oils these product help the skin to recover from environmental stress, resulting in healthy looking skin, promoting luster, preventing wrinkles, smoothening and softening the skin in the process. Those who experienced dryness of skin like eczema and psoriasis have improved their skin condition.
Needless to say, the Swedish Patent & Registration Office have given Vedessence its important stamp of approval as well as the International Nomenclature of Cosmetics Ingredients or INCI.
Vedessence has now hundreds of testimonials from valued customers who are happy to continue using Vedessence Night and Day Cream + Serum.
Being in the cosmetic industry is a very tough branch with many competitors everywhere. What is the best thing about this business?
As I said earlier, I needed more time to spend with my three kids especially when they were small. Being a single mother, owning my own business and working from home was the best solution I could think of. So Vedessence is a product of my life´s necessity as well as a dream come true. I have always wanted to make people feel good and beautiful. Yes, it is tough but so rewarding.
How do you see yourself five years from now?
I would love to see my brand being used in small private Organic Skin Care Clinics around Europe, and most especially in some exclusive shops in Dubai, Cairo, the UAE, and of course, back home in the Philippines.
To our kababayans in Europe who run their own skin care clinics, I would like to invite them to try Vedessence products.
