As the founder of LHAMOUR, I wanted to share with you the vision I had when I first started. At first, it was very simple: find a solution for my own problem. Then it started to become bigger: make an impact on other people’s lives and the society at large.
In 2012, I came back to Mongolia to work for Mongolia’s first wind farm company after having lived in the States and Europe for many years. I slowly started to develop allergies due to the negative external effects such as air pollution, low quality of water and extreme climate, which was a great shock to me because I never had allergies and having skin rashes truly affected my daily life. I began to wonder what to do. Since I never had skin problems, it never occurred to me that the skin is so important. It is the mirror of our health and it was truly making me understand so many things. I consulted with doctors and they advised me that I should at least use mild natural products since I cannot change the negative external affects. But, I could not find anything. Either it was imported and not really natural or it was low quality. I thus, started thinking about products in general, started looking at the ingredient lists and started understanding what it truly means to use natural products. What started out as a question regarding my own problem, turned into passion, as it inspired me to learn about the skin and effects that products have on it. I started getting deeper into it and then decided to pursue it professionally by enrolling in Formula Botanica, the world's leading accredited online Organic Cosmetic Science School and became a professional skin care product formulator. I moved quickly onto the advanced diploma and soon started making products for myself using Mongolian ingredients. I started at home and made products that I wished to use myself. I then started giving out to friends and family, who in fact had similar skin problems such as mine. It later turned out that the majority of people 1) have allergies as well 2) do not know what kind of skin type they are 3) do not understand products well enough to decide on which ones are suiting them 4) believe in myths about skin care and have very wrong skin routines 5) do not feel that the skin is that important.
Therefore, I decided that I want to use my passion for solving my own skin problems together with the professional background that I acquired and the opportunity of using amazing unique raw materials in Mongolia and start my journey of entrepreneurship. Thus, I hope you can see that LHAMOUR is based on love. The philosophy of loving yourself and taking care of yourself, loving others and sharing knowledge and passion as well as loving the environment. It has my niece’s name LHAMO in it, because eventually what we do now will affect our next generation and thus, by being a social impact business, we want to show the future generation that we need to take care of each other and mother nature as well.
