Lee Stafford About our brand
Lee Stafford launched in Boots in the UK in 2001. Known as the ‘the pink brand’ the range featured a barcode on the front of pack, some very unusual writing with a mix of upper and lower case letters and some very interesting/ cheeky product names. The brand instantly got attention.
Today pink still dominates the award winning Lee Stafford collection which is packed full of iconic and innovative products, some of which have been with us since the beginning. We believe that if something still works then we don’t need to change it. We are all about things working and doing EXACTLY what they say on the bottle.
Every product is tried, tested and signed off by Lee Stafford. Lee is a Celebrity Hairdresser that has also become a bit of a celebrity himself with various TV appearances. Lee has high standard and he tests everything against salon brands. We have always worked to bring innovation and salon quality to the high street and your home.
Nearly 20 years later we are still on a mission to create the hair you actually want. We are dedicated to mane power.
A lot of our lovely Lee Stafford products are free from animal derived ingredients and are vegan friendly. Some of our products may not be suitable for vegans, this is because they contain animal derived ingredients such as Beeswax, Silk Protein or Lanolin. These are classed as ‘vegetarian friendly.’
We have started to put our new ‘Vegan Friendly’ and ‘Vegetarian friendly’ logo on pack but not all have been up-dated yet. If you would like to know more about this just get in touch!
No animal Testing
This is a matter very close to our hearts here at Lee Stafford so fear not! You can rest easy and enjoy our lovely products knowing that they are absolutely not tested on animals and are cruelty free. Below is a statement from PETA which covers us as well.
“In 2003, the EU responded to the long-standing public campaign against cosmetics tested on animals by introducing a ban on animal testing for cosmetics and toiletries inside the EU – not just for finished products but, critically, for their individual ingredients, too. That ban was introduced in stages and became complete in 2009. As a result, no testing on animals for cosmetics now takes place anywhere in the EU.”
There are no grey areas here as it is simply illegal to sell any product or raw material that has been tested on animals. We also commit to not retailing in countries that have the requirement to test on animals.
At Lee Stafford we are as passionate about what goes into our amazing products, we want to be open and transparent to as to why we use ingredients and what they are in our products for, so indulge your curiosity with our ingredient overview. If you have any questions on ingredients or our formulations please get in touch!
We understand how important it is for our planet that the amount of rubbish that ends up in landfill is reduced. We are committed to reducing waste by always using bottles, jars, tubes and caps that can be widely recycled. Always remember to rinse out products before popping in your recycling bin.
When it comes to your delivery we are also conscious of recyclability. We send out most of our orders in pink bubble bags, because we love pink and also because we want to ensure that all orders are protected and arrive in pristine condition. A lot of bubble bags out there can’t be recycled. But we’ve carefully selected our bubble bags to make sure they can be! As always you need to check your local recycling information to see whether you can add to your normal recycling bin, but don’t worry if not as we’ve had confirmation you can take the pink bubble bags to Tesco’s to be recycled.
