The Light Elegance Story

Why are LE products...

100% HEMA monomer free?

At LE, we always formulate our products using only the highest-quality ingredients and choose ingredients less likely to cause allergic responses. Many brands use HEMA monomer because it is good for adhesion and cheap and is therefore popular among many manufacturers that choose price over quality. We choose to formulate by avoiding ingredients such as HEMA, HEA, IBOA and other ingredients known to be more likely to create an allergic response. At LE, we believe we have a huge responsibility to keep the industry as safe as possible. This is why we choose to make all of our products from scratch here in Oregon, choose only the finest raw materials and formulate without using ingredients more likely to have an allergic response.


Welcome to the LE Family

We’re all about family and chemistry here. It was just about 23 years ago that these values combined to form the bond we share today—with one another, and our customers. 

Our Story

Family-Owned & Operated

Lezlie was running her own luxury salon, while Jim was working with polyurethane systems in wood products and transportation. Beyond their affinity for each other, they shared a passion for formulating safer, better-performing products. They established LE and haven’t looked back since. The tradition of innovation continues with the next generation, Lexy and Joseph.

The local distributorship in South Africa is spear headed by Christi van Zyl and Saydi Barbosa from Light Elegance SA and looking forward in supporting you to join the LE Family.


We are here to welcome you to the LE Family!
