Newstead couple Robin and David Lyons have been revitalising the Brisbane skincare market for two and half decades with their natural, no-nonsense skincare brand, Simplicite. Simplicite is proudly vegan and cruelty free, a decision which Robin says is both ethical and practical. David and Robin make their plant extracts by hand, sourcing five of them from their own property adjacent to remnant Gondwana forest in the Lockyer Valley. It is this commitment to quality that has led the Lyons to seek natural materials not just from Queensland, but from all over the world. While it is a common belief that locally sourced ingredients are superior to imported goods, Robin says that in skincare, this is not necessarily the case.
