General

How did The Lekker Company start?

Dewi's out-of-control hobby started out of frustration with the difficult terminology on an average cosmetics label. You can read the whole story on the about us page. Lekker is Dutch for smooth, luscious, cool, nice, super, pleasant, great, feelgood, poised, yummy, appealing. It refers to the scent of our products and how they make you feel; lekker!

Lekker hotline

Help! I think I'm having an allergic reaction.

Oh no! That's not lekker. Below you can read what's best to do for each product.

Deodorant
Did you have a reaction immediately after applying it? Then you may be allergic to (one of) our essential oils. Try our neutral or sensitive deodorant, which works just as well and is free of allergens. Especially for sensitive armpits. Just got a reaction after using it several times? Then it's probably a reaction to baking soda:

Try the following:
1. Use a little less deo
2. Mix apple cider vinegar and water 1:1 and dab on your armpit with a cotton ball. About 4 times a year is enough, many people can stand baking soda again after this
3. Lubricate a little aloe vera before applying your deodorant.

Lip balm
Our Raspberry lemonade lip balm is allergen-free, but here you can find all the ingredients just to be sure. The Orange Vanilla contains allergens that occur naturally in essential oils: linalool, citral, citronellol and geraniol. Should you have an allergic reaction, stop applying.

Sunscreen
Our sunscreen contains allergens that occur naturally in eucalyptus essential oil, namely limonene. Should you get an allergic reaction, stop applying.

I am pregnant, can I use your products?

Yes, you can use our products just fine during pregnancy. The amount of essential oils in the products is below the maximum percentage that can be used during pregnancy.

I am breastfeeding, can I use your product?

Yes, you can use our products just fine while breastfeeding. Despite not being harmful, a baby is naturally close to the armpit during breastfeeding. Some babies find certain odours unpleasant. In that case, it is best to choose our neutral-scented deodorant.

Do you test products on animals?

No. Don't be silly. Rabbits really don't need deodorant, lip balm or sunscreen.

Are your products vegan?

Yes. All our products are completely natural and suitable for vegans.

Are your products organic?

Some of our products are organic. In the ingredients list, we indicate this with an * after the organic ingredients. The deodorant contains an average of 45% organic ingredients. The lip balms contain between 1-1,7% organic ingredients. The body-bars contain an average of 17% organic ingredients.

Is your packaging sustainable?

Yes. Our packaging is made of cardboard, which is allowed in the waste paper after use.

Are you B-Corp?

YES! This is something we are really proud of. Together with more than 4,000 other companies, we are working hard to create a transparent world where environmental and social responsibility is taken. This is how we make a difference together.

Do you have discount codes and offers?

Sure. We communicate these in our newsletter and social media channels. Sign up to not miss a thing! You will also find combi deals in our webshop, where you can score more products for less.

Zijn jullie producten biologisch?

We maken graag gebruik van biologische ingrediënten, maar zijn niet 100% biologisch. Onze deodorant bevat gemiddeld 45% biologische ingrediënten. Onze lippenbalsem bevatten slechts 1-1,7% biologische ingrediënten. Onze body-bars bevatten gemiddeld 17% biologische ingrediënten.

Deodorant

How long does your deodorant last?

Our deodorant is highly concentrated. You therefore only need a small amount, about the size of a pea, per armpit. Do you use it daily? Then you could do with one pot for 2-3 months.

How do I use your deodorant?

Our deo is a spreadable, cream deodorant. You use it by scooping a little from the jar with your finger. You need about the size of a pea per armpit. Spread this under your armpits and you'll smell great for the rest of the day!

How often should I use the deodorant?

Our deodorant is highly concentrated. You therefore only need a small amount, about the size of a pea, per armpit. This is enough to smell good all day. But feel free to use the deodorant as often as you and your armpits love.

My deodorant looks crazy, what should I do?

Our deodorant is natural, so it doesn't always look 'perfect'. But if it smells nice and feels soft, it's fine. Does the deodorant feel grainy? Then the coconut oil has reacted to heat differences. If you rub the grains between thumb and forefinger it will become soft again (a bit like honey!). Still having doubts about your deo? Then email us with a description and photo at klantenservice@thelekkercompany.com.

Sunscreen

Can the sunscreen be used for body and face?

Yes. The sunscreen is suitable for both body and face.

How often should I reapply sunscreen?

For the best possible protection, we recommend reapplying yourself every two hours.

How long do I do with your sunscreen?

If you use the sunscreen as often as a regular bottle of any other brand, you will use it for roughly the same amount of time. Our sunscreen comes in a smaller pack, but contains no water and is therefore more concentrated. Exactly how long you can use it for depends on your use.

Is SPF 30 enough to protect my skin?

Yes, SPF 30 protects against 97% UVB rays, while SPF 50 protects against 98% UVB rays. So the difference is small. Especially since SPF 50 gives the idea that it protects much more than SPF 30. People therefore often forget to reapply with SPF 50 after two hours. The very best protection is to stay out of the sun. Do you like to enjoy the sun? Then apply sunscreen every two hours.

Is the sunburn suitable for skin with acne?

Yes. The mineral sun filters in our sunscreen stay on your skin's surface and won't get into your pores. This is why our sunscreen is also suitable for people prone to acne, even though it is not specifically formulated or tested for people who suffer from this. We recommend washing your face twice a day to avoid clogging.

Is the sunscreen suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes. Our formula is 100% natural with moisturising ingredients, making it suitable for sensitive skin. It does contain allergens, so we recommend smearing a little into your elbow to rule out any reaction.

Is the sunscreen suitable for children?

Yes. The sunscreen can be used safely for children from 3 years old. We cannot say for sure whether the sunscreen is also safe for children between 0 and 2 years old, as we have not yet done these tests.

Is the sunscreen water-resistant and ocean-friendly?

Yes. The natural UV filtering ingredients are coated, making the formula insoluble in water. This also makes it safe for ocean life and coral reefs.

Why is there zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in your sunscreen?

Both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are natural mineral-based ingredients that have been used in skin care products for centuries. They have strong UV light absorbing properties and when these ingredients are combined, they provide broad protection. Thanks to these ingredients, you prevent skin cells from getting damaged.

Lip balm

How often should I use the lip balm?

As often as you and your lips like. Our lip balms are practically edible and smell mega delicious. We therefore understand that you can't stay away from them ;).

Is your lip balm addictive?

No. Mineral oils in other lip balms seal the lips and dry them out. We use no mineral oils and only natural ingredients. As a result, our lip balms are not addictive, but very lekker!
