At Lyftaal we believe in supporting the South African industry and keeping our carbon footprint small, which is why we use locally sourced products wherever possible and only opt for international brands when there is no local equivalent available.

We have searched far and wide to find our favourites, which we use to complement our treatment techniques and recommend as home-care to keep our clients glowing in between their visits to Lyftaal.
