About Love, Lusie

lovelusies

We’re Deiseree and Marion, two cousins from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah who share the same Grandmother. It all started when Deiseree had an idea while eating pickled Tuhau, and Whatsapp-ed Marion.

We wanted something different, something unique, something that’s of us.

Living in a Kadazan household, we both grew up eating Tuhau (much like kimchi to Koreans). Tuhau, an indigenous plant of Sabah, can be found in the jungles of North Borneo. Besides consuming, natives have been using this plant to heal wounds, cure stomachache as well as remove body odour for post-partum women.

We experimented for months and took our love for Tuhau to the next level, by incorporating this plant in beauty products. We started with body scrubs and gave our family and close friends to try them out. After a lot of feedback and improvements, we released them to the market on the 15th of August 2016.

The woman behind the name

We’ve decided on the name Love, Lusie after agreeing that we should name it after our beloved Grandmother, Lusinah. Being strong, inspiring and strict to traditions, it is only fair that we honour her as the queen of the family.

Love, Lusie is the first company in the world to incorporate Tuhau extract in beauty products. We’re one-of-a-kind 😉
