Introducing LISSOM Skincare

Introducing LISSOM: A bouquet of botanicals for skin. Multi-tasking skincare essentials, formulated with active botanical ingredients.

“We know how hard it is to find time in your day to care for your skin, so we are making it easy. With different skin types and lifestyles in mind, we are developing products that provide all-round care and help skin look its beautiful best.”
- Co-founders, Michelle Anson & Lydia Shi

Launching this January, Lissom’s mission and passion is to meet the diverse beauty needs of New Zealanders as well as people all around the world by developing attractive, effective skincare and beauty products that are serious about skin.

Here at Lissom we have three key commitments: (1) safe yet effective formulations, (2) made in New Zealand by the best, most experienced skincare formulators, and (3) designed for the real lives we live: full of variety, always on the go, and in need of luxurious yet affordable skincare that we can turn to time and time again. 

Lissom carefully selects only the best quality ingredients to formulate its safe, effective products. The rare and exotic New Zealand Damask Rose is a hero ingredient in the Rose Moisture Boost Sleeping Mask, which is a pink leave-on gel enriched with AHAs, hyaluronic acid, pomegranate, rosehip and green tea extract, and Renewal Serum consists of a unique blend of Provitamin B5 and over 10 botanical extracts including green tea, turmeric and rosehip to combat visible signs of ageing.

Owned and operated in Auckland, Lissom formulates locally to maintain quality, and all products are manufactured in a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-certified facility in New Zealand, which means production takes place in a controlled environment according to strict procedures. When it came to formulation, co-founders Lydia and Michelle (who both met whilst working in the skincare industry) worked closely with the in-house cosmetic industry professionals to formulate skincare products that harness the most effective ingredients and deliver a pleasant application and wearability experience.

All products are animal cruelty-free and do not contain sulphates, phthalates and parabens. The packaging is fully recyclable, with each product’s box featuring attractive imagery that showcases New Zealand and the product ingredients, which makes Lissom perfect for gifting to friends and family.
