The menopause can play havoc with our hair, skin, nails and mood. We can experience hair loss, our skin loses elasticity and our nails can become brittle. Don’t even get me started on the mood swings! If you are suffering from any of these pesky menopausal symptoms I highly recommend popping over to SuperfoodLx for natural and holistic support.

Intelligence Hydrating Hair Vitamin Cream
A thick and luxurious nutrient packed cream to help heal strengthen and grow hair. Use as a leave on or wash out treatment mask. Rich in vitamin E, trace minerals and omega fatty acids. Non greasy formula which soaks in quickly. Suitable for both scalp and hair application. Mild sweet orange and ylang ylang essential oil fragrance
Ingredients include: Shea butter, grapeseed oil, squalane, apricot seed oil, borage oil, vitamin E
This luxurious cream is a multi-tasking treat. It can be used as a leave in or wash out mask or for taming frizz or coarse hair. My hair is fine so I use a tiny amount to tame flyaways. At only £18 for 100ml it really should be a cupboard staple.
Another hair treat, perfect for all hair types, is SuperfoodLx hair, skin and nail oil.
SuperFoodLx Hair, Skin and Nails Oil.
A truly versatile and potent hair, skin and nail oil which is ‘dry’ and velvety on application.SuperFoodLx
SuperfoodLx Hair, Skin and Nail Oil contains vitamins A – K and omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9 and it is rich in silica for collagen support. Ingredients include: Watermelon seed, papaya, seje, moringa, sea buckthorn, cucumber, vitamin E. This fantastic oil (spoiler – I love it) is multi purpose and customisable. I challenge anyone not to find a way to like it, whatever their skin, hair or nail type.
Hair, Skin and Nail oil sinks in immediately, leaving no oily residue. I have been using this oil on my hands, nails, face and body to fully road test it. My skin has been dry, irritated and itchy from a mix of central heating and the cold and my nails are broken and soft from repeated handwashing.After using this incredible oil my nails are stronger and longer and my skin is soothed and comforted. A multitasking superpower at only £22.00
SuperFoodLx Mood Architect
Lockdown will have undoubtedly affected our moods and vitamin D levels. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to fatigue, lowered immunity, pain, depression and hair loss so it’s important to take a supplement. To naturally improve our mood 5HTP is a bit of a wonder. SuperfoodLx’s Mood Architect contains both vitamin D3 and 5HTP so really is sunshine in a capsule.
Mood Architect is a unique blend of high performance, plant based nutrients to help design your emotions naturally. 5HTP is a precursor to serotonin, the ‘feel good’ chemical messenger which helps regulate our emotions, appetite and sleep cycle. Mood Architect’s 5HTP is from the griffonia seed cultivated in the sun soaked lands of Ghana, Africa. Our vitamin D3 is sustainably sourced from the plant organism-lichen to provide your daily micro infusion of plant-based sunshine.SuperFoodLx

Despite being incredibly busy, Paula kindly agreed to tell me a little more about SuperfoodLx.
Thank you for your time Paula.
Please tell us a little about yourselves.
My name is Paula and I am one half of hair wellness brand SuperFoodLx. My mum, Cherry makes up the other half and she is a Nurse. Together we formulate and self test all of the products we create.
What inspired you to set up SuperFoodLx?
In short, my hair fell out and my mum helped it to grow back with a homemade oil formula (which is now called Illuminism). I knew that if my mum could help me that we must be able to help lots of other people who suffer with hair loss for various reasons whether it be stress, diet, hormones or poor hair product choices. I am and have had hair drama as a result of all of those things so we are really passionate about helping women overcome those issues.
What is the ethos behind the brand?
The ethos of SuperFoodLx is to help women heal strengthen and grow their hair using nutrient dense vegan formulations powered by plant based superfood ingredients.
Please give us a quick overview of your products?
We have a range of topical and oral products. We have a kelp and spirulina hair skin and nail vitamin, a CBD range which can be used topically and orally, a pomegranate based hair balm called illuminism and a super versatile all rounder for hydration and softness called Intelligence. A latest addition is our Mood Architect supplement which is purely for stress reduction.
What is your desert island SuperFoodLx product?
Oooh… it would have to be my hero product that started it all Illuminism. When my hair is completely frizzed out on the island I know that I could keep it under control, well moisturised and nice and strong.
How can your products support ladies in midlife and the menopause?
Hair thinning can be a problem when going through the menopause so our Kelp and Spirulina vitamins would be the best option to avoid this. The Hair Skin and Nail Oil and also the Intelligence hair cream are great for changes in hair texture. The Hair Skin and Nail oil is rich in silica which helps with collagen production so within a week of daily use, many women notice a smoothing of fine dehydration lines.
Thank you for your time Paula.
