Two weeks after my wedding I was in an off-road vehicle accident. The vehicle I was in had a fuel leak into the engine and engulfed in flames while I was caught inside, leaving me with 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 15% of my upper body- Mainly my arms and shoulders. I was rushed to a local ER where they dressed my wounds and sent me on my way...
Out of fear of infection, we drove straight to Irvine Burn Unit where they admitted me immediately and kept me in the ICU for 5 days. 5 days of excruciating "burn bath" scrubs, dressing, and wound care. I left the hospital after a new experimental procedure with a "pig skin" graft. Basically working as an artificial scab until the wounds healed underneath. It was definitely a conversation starter let me tell you..
After the initial wounds healed, I was given simple instructions of "non scented lotion", fatty foods to rebuild skin elasticity and all that jazz. But I wasn't sold. Being a clean, organic eater and using a natural skincare regimen to begin with, I started researching natural ways to heal the skin. My mom and I came up with this lotion that included WHOLE, NATURAL, 100% ORGANIC and simple ingredients that WORK! We did some trial and error and came up with something that I truly swear by.
I mean it when I say this is ALL I have used topically on my skin since my burns. Obviously I stayed out of the sun for almost a year, used a natural 70 spf every day, and drank a shit ton of collagen (wasn't sold on the fatty foods idea). But the natural, healing, ultra hydrating ingredients in my lotion work. I GUARANTEE IT. I've done the research. I've spent the time perfecting the product and it's continually getting better <3
Le Feu means fire- because I wanted a name that meant something to me and would resonate with the product. It all started with fire, and now I believe this product is fire- because it works.
