* intro ORIGIN luk beautifood is a 100% natural, boutique beauty brand created in Australia and launched online in Oct 2012 for lovers of a healthier more simple lifestyle. It is owned by Cindy Luken sole director of Luken & Co. Pty Ltd.

RECIPE

Skin lives and breathes, how we care for ourselves when we eat and the products we apply to our bodies is reflected in our health and beauty wellbeing. The first collection is a delicious menu of lip products made from the food active goodies lips love and need to be nourished, hydrated and luminous. In the Beauty  Kitchen™  women  learn  how  to  nourish  &  nurture  their  whole  body    

from  the  inside  out  &  outside  in  with  delicious  beau9food™  recipes,  infobites   and  9ps  &  tricks  on  how  to  feel,  look  and  be  delicious  inside  &  out!     LUK IS MADE OF…        Passion:  live    the  life  you  love              Nourishment:  good  food  your  body  &  soul            Individuality:  believe  in  yourself;  be  free  to  succeed            Honesty:  our  word  is  our  promise            Beauty:    a  woman  who  dares  to  follow  her  dreams          Time:  to  do  the  things  a  mother  needs  to  do!            People:  our  friends,  our  customers,  our  team,  our  family.

* essence FOOD + BEAUTY = delicious you! We believe that nurturing and nourishing your body with foods brimming with food active nutrients is central to cultivating a beautiful you. Food actives are essential for our skin, body and mind to operate at optimum levels. And we all know how feeling good on inside shows on the outside!

However, with the stresses of modern living, our body is put to the test at every waking moment. An unbalanced diet, eating highly refined foods, using synthetic beauty preparations or over exposing ourselves to environmental or emotional stresses results in a short supply of these essential food active nutrients and in turn, leads to detrimental effects on our body such as premature aging, altered mood and lower self worth. Good food is nature’s beauty recipe. Whole nuts, seeds, grains, fruits and vegetables contain an intrinsic and synergistic mix of essential macro and micro nutrients including antioxidants, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytonutrients; the right active foods are, in a nutshell, the perfect beauty food for our whole body.

4  


That’s why it makes sense to create lipstick from beautiful, fresh and food active ingredients we should be eating! Not only does it provide the skin with a daily dose of essential nutrients for optimum health and beauty but we can feel good knowing that we are supporting the body’s natural processes to deliver beautiful results.

Our thinking stems from consumers greater understanding of what we eat and its effect on our health and wellbeing. The shift in consumer values and expectations have already brought about a turning point in the food industry. It is now moving into the world of beauty as consumers finally accept that topical applications are absorbed by the skin and metabolised (think nicotine patches). Luk beautifood looks after woman who care for their body with fresh, healthy foods but struggle to find beauty products that follow the same modern outlook without compromising their innate sense of style and love of beautiful things. And what’s inside our products is what counts: 100% natural, delicious and nutritious food active ingredients with no added nasties. That’s why beauty and food mix in the world of luk.

* founder

Cindy Luken

45yrs | married | 2 little ones | B.App  Sci  (Food  &  Nutri9on),  Honorary  MS  |   CEO  (Chief  Everything  Officer!)  

Food scientist, chef, entrepreneur, modern mum, ex bikkie baker, founder and managing director of luk beautifood, creator of the Table of Fabulousness and beauty-food blogger.

                                                 6  


I have a B. App. Sci. in Food & Nutrition, an Honorary Master of Science from Newcastle Uni for my professional contribution to the world of food & science, I’ve cooked for Prince Charles and Lady Di (& lots of executives and well-to-do folk) under caterer extraordinaire Norma Willis and in my catering biz back in the early 90′s, baked about 30 million bikkies pa for 8 years (remember Luken & May?), got sticky fingers creating Sara Lee’s Ice cream & Sticky Date Pud (gosh that was late 80′s) and can dish up dinner to 2 fussy little kids (that gets eaten most of the time!)     On a more serious side…I have sat on various advisory committees & councils including the National Food Industry Council & Innovation Committees providing input on strategic and future issues (at Parliament House with 5 ministers present!) and was a member of the Small Business Advisory panel to the Reserve Bank Board. I built Luken & May’s brand awareness with in-house PR (my time was cheap!) and by being an active public communicator in the media, at business forums, and in the education and science industry sectors. I am led to believe that it is my ‘unique combination of creative flair and strategic management’ that won us over 20 export, entrepreneur and business awards including Jaguar Gourmet Traveller award for Excellence in Produce, the Australian Business “Success thru Innovation” prize and 19th & 20th spot in BRW’s Fast 100. I am a ‘jack of all trades’ with a vast array of skills from visionary leadership, and ‘guerrilla marketing’ to being technically savvy with expertise in nutrition & food science, quality assurance and New Product Development. Making money & being organised is essential in a SME so backend management – operations, admin and finance after years of hands on experience is second nature. I love how IT is now so affordable & accessible so it’s fun to run a small business again, and MOST of all I love mixing with my customers and making them happy. I also attempt to write another blog, am the founder of the Table of Fabulousness and only want to work 20hrs pw + a few evenings when the kids have gone to bed so I have time for me, my family & my biz. My philosophy is simple…..’live the life you love’….and the rest falls into place. I created luk beautifood as I am ready to give a bit back to me so that I can continue to be a happy wife and mother (our kids now 4&5).

first taste

Prior to ‘going live’ Bellabox subscribers were treated to the first ever taste of luk lip Nourish . Here are a few of the comments & links. “This is my favourite product in the box. It loooks really dark but goes on really sheer. I loved it and tried it straight away. I received the Lime & Ginger and love that I can actually ‘taste’ the flavours. Not ot mention that it comes in really sleek packaging too. Definitely something I am excited to keep using.” ‘Makemeupmandy’ blogspot “Loving the luk lip stuff. Can’t wait to buy some more flavours.” Clair Sheppard. “ The colour is a very sheer nude with a soft shimmer. Really excited to try this one out…”Stephanie Kessler “It’s so soft & nourishing. You can either wear it alone or under/over another colour to add sparkle…So thrilled to have his one included. This is 100% edible and natural so you don’t need to feel bad or disgusted at the fact that the average gal consumes up to 2kg’s of lipstick over her lifetime.” Amy Steel “…smells divine and lasts for hours on my lips.” Leah Poulton “It looks very dark, but once you put it on it is a very natural shade and is very soothing and lovely to wear. I rate this product a 4/5.” Jessica Mole Blogger review: got to… http:// girlgotstyle.wordpress.com/ 2012/09/06/luk-beautifoods-lipnourish/ “ I find Cindy’s website and abundance of I information very comforting.
