Sea salt, herbs and seaweed are just a few of the natural ingredients sourced from the windswept nature and the sea surrounding the Danish island of Læsø that are used in the Læsøfruerne skincare range – products developed and produced locally, using only the finest ingredients from Mother Nature to nourish and care for dry skin.

“It started out as a weekend activity with my two eldest daughters back in 2008. We had fun testing and developing recipes using what we could find in nature to make moisturisers and soap bars that we could gift to friends and family,” recalls Solveig Lynge, founder of Læsøfruerne. Fast-forward a decade, and the family of products includes body lotions, scrubs, oils, moisturisers, clay treatments and much more – all made with natural ingredients as much as possible.
“I’m a nurse by profession and always thought that there had to be better alternatives to treating dry skin and other issues, than the existing products on the market. So, when I moved to Læsø and found myself surrounded by the most beautiful nature, I decided to give it a go,” says Lynge. Inspired by Læsø Kur, the local spa resort, which uses local salt in its treatments, she included salt residues from world-famous Læsø Salt in many of the products, and this proved to be a winning formula. “Salt is particularly suitable for psoriasis and dry skin, and many people swear by the products,” she says.
Lynge owns the local farm shop Storhaven, where the products can be found. They are also sold in Læsøfruerne’s web shop, and in health shops all over Denmark. Visit the website for a full stockist list.
Læsøfruerne offers a wide range of skincare products made from some of the finest ingredients sourced in Læsø’s nature.
