Our Journey

Informed by Science

Designed to Move

Athletes expect a lot from their bodies - but what about their skin? From the chlorine of a pool to the pollution from road cycling or the extreme cold of skiing, our skin is constantly up against the elements. That’s why we create ingredient-rich formulations that are designed specifically for an athlete’s skin. We thoughtfully select our ingredients to create efficacious formulas that work as hard as you do.

We know skin

As an endurance athlete, our founder Angie Buonassisi knows first hand how challenging it is to keep skin protected from the elements when training and playing involve daily exposure to sun, wind, cold and chemicals. As the co-founder of renowned medical aesthetics practice 8 West Clinic, she has intimate knowledge of the full spectrum of treatments, from topical products to laser treatments to oral supplementation, for optimizing skin health. The team behind Lontreau is passionate about sport and uses their own experience to develop products that can benefit everyone from everyday movers to competitive athletes.

Angie Buonassisi
Founder & CEO

Angie is a dedicated athlete trying to balance sport, activities with her young children and work. Like most modern women trying to find balance in a demanding world, she doesn’t have time for a complicated skincare routine. She was inspired to develop a line of products that support the extreme conditions of an athlete’s lifestyle — from pollution to the elements. As the co-owner of 8 West Clinic, she sees the concerns and needs of thousands of patients. Beyond creating a skincare brand that meets the unique needs of an athlete’s skin, she is also passionate about creating a community that is inspired by the support and strength of female athletes. This year she served her 6th and final year on the Board of Directors for Cycling BC. Angie is also a founding member of Team Velogrit Lontreau, a group of women committed to pushing themselves on the bike, friendship and fun. In 2021 & 2022 the team crafted their own events as part of the Courage 2 Go Further challenge in support of Coast Mental Health. In addition to riding 220km in 2021 and over 5,000 vertical metres in 2022, the team raised $110k for Coast Mental Health, inspiring those around them to set lofty goals!

Our Values

We want to inspire the Lontreau community with stories from everyday and professional athletes that are doing (and have done) exceptional things.

Lontreau is for everyone from movement enthusiasts to professional athletes. We want to provide a positive environment and community to connect and inspire.

Our community spends a lot of time outdoors and we want to show our respect for the planet we love to explore. Lontreau is a member of the 1% for the Planet network, donating 1% of our annual gross sales to environmental non-profits. We are also Plastic Negative which means we remove twice as much plastic from the environment as we produce. We are focused on creating sustainable initiatives for our future.

We're more passionate about the journey than the goals at the finish line. We don’t use language that speaks to perfection, instead, we like to focus on health.
