LeSean is named after the founder and chief chemist of our company, Dr. Sean Le. After completing his medical degree at Windsor School of Medicine in St.Kitts, Sean took up an internship at Sidney Ohio, JNK St.Kitts, and FV Hospital Vietnam.
During his internship, Sean noticed many young colleagues were having problems with acne. Sean had long had an interest in cosmetic chemistry, so he formulated a cleanser and acne treatment cream for them to try. It worked well and they liked it. And although Sean didn’t realize it at the time, a seed was sown in his own head that would greatly influence the direction of his career.
When his internship was completed, Sean returned to Canada and in his spare time, started developing additional personal care/cosmetic products. A line of skin care products—cleanser, moisturizer, wrinkle reducer—was developed, and these were followed by serums to stimulate the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows. This part-time hobby quickly took on a life of its own and it was not long before most of Sean’s time was spent in the lab developing and testing these products. And that is how LeSean Canada was formed.
