The Story of LYKKEGAARD
My name is Mette Lykkegaard and I've always been passionate about using healthy and functional beauty products, as well as giving my children healthy and sustainable options.
At the age of 28 and a law student in Aarhus, Denmark, I was diagnosed with cancer. Of course, I was scared out of my mind, especially when I learnt that the cancer was not hereditary but caused by external factors. At this point, I realised how much damage seemingly harmless products that I put on my body every day could do.
In the following years, I trained as a lawyer with the right to appear before the Supreme Court, where I have expert knowledge in my areas of specialisation, which include environmental law and equal treatment.
During this period, I was pregnant 7 times, but only became the mother of four healthy children, including a pair of twins.
Despite working as a lawyer, an idea blossomed between my husband and I to set a new, pioneering direction in natural hair care. We travel the world talking about ecology, certifications, ingredients and the Scandinavian outlook on life with our company NATULIQUE.
We both work full-time on our business, which is growing bigger and bigger. We produce and sell organic and natural hair and scalp products to salons globally, and we still do today. We love working with professionals from around the world, including beauticians and skin specialists. They are passionate and dedicated.
My background and knowledge of guidelines and safety assessments of cosmetic products is used daily in my work, and my professional ballast is indispensable when navigating the cosmetics industry's legislation.
All this forms the basis for LYKKEGAARD - a brand that is relatively new, but the idea, vision and experience go back a long way. That makes us the easy choice if you're looking for a transparent, genuine and healthy brand - inside and out - that will go the extra mile for you and the environment.
