Natural moisturisers to help soothe the appearance of eczema, dermatitis and itchy dry skin

Moisturise your skin naturally with our range of safe, gentle products that are designed to help soothe the apperance of eczema, dermatitis and itchy dry skin conditions. Luxeluna began when Christine, our founder, needed to find a gentle moisturising solution for her young son who was undergoing cancer treatment at the time. After trying many over the counter products, she was unable to find a cream that provided significant hydration and relief while being gentle on his delicate skin. Determined to find a solution that would be suitable for sensitive skin conditions and young children, Christine became a qualified cosmetic chemist. After liaising with multiple skincare experts, Luxeluna was born, providing a comprehensive clinical and toxin-free solution that is now available to adults and children worldwide.

Our back story 

Hi I am Christine and I'm the owner and founder of Luxeluna Face and Body skincare. I am a cosmetic formulation chemist with a background in product development. 


I am a busy mum of 2 boys - Cooper and Kingston (pictured) and live in the inner west of Sydney.

In January 2018, my older son Cooper tragically passed away to a rare cancer like blood disorder HLH.

This is where the journey of Luxeluna started.

When Cooper was going through chemo treatments and preparation for his bone marrow transplant, his skin became very itchy and sensitive. That is when I discovered oatmeal creams. They worked okay but I couldn't find one that I absolutely loved.

My own skin is also naturally very dry and sensitive and I could never find an all natural product that would keep it moisturised all day. My skin also reacts badly to products with certain harsh ingredients. I found that by the afternoon, all products I used for very dry skin were still not enough. This always frustrated me.

So I became a qualified cosmetic chemist and started Luxeluna Face and Body.

I am a huge fan of plant oils and I feel that there are so many benefits. I started to blend my own body oil and serum and it was a miracle! It kept my skin hydrated all day. I also made a balm that includes gentle soothing ingredients like oatmeal and calendula to help with my dry, itchy irritation on my hands.

After Cooper passed, I vowed to find a way to both find a way to share my formulations with other people who've struggled with dry sensitive skin who also have an environmental conscience. I also wanted to find a way to raise money for HLH research, the disease that took him from us.

I absolutely love formulating and creating beautiful natural products. I am so intrigued with product composition, the chemistry behind it and the amazing benefits of ingredients sourced directly from nature. 

I also believe that because we take care of ourselves and loved ones, also means taking care of our planet. I am committed to minimising our environmental impact. That is why our skincare is palm oil free.

Our products only use the most gentle ingredients sourced from nature that actually work and keep skin hydrated, soft and supple. Luxeluna is clean, simple and effective.

Luxeluna Face and Body products contain organic plant oils and actives designed to deeply hydrate, nourish and soothe dryness and irritation as a result of the natural aging process, pregnancy and motherhood. All of our products are safe to use in pregnancy and while on fertility treatments.


Here at Luxeluna, we believe it is possible to create beautiful natural skin care that actually works that do not include harsh ingredients or palm oil.

So what does Luxeluna mean? The name Luxeluna actually comes from my family name. ELUNA is my family name who hails from Mindanao Philippines. We love mangoes and coconut which can be found in our face cream, balm & body butter. LUX means luxurious products for dry skin. The accented U is a reminder to have U time. Take time for U. Prioritise U. And feel like U again with supple, hydrated skin. GREEN, the colour of nature. Which is where our ingredients are sourced from.
