Our Story

Lamano is a natural hand and nail care brand that was founded on the principle of providing high-quality, natural products that would help people take good care of their hands, as well as their minds and souls.

“I believe that the smallest acts of self-care can make a huge difference in our lives. I know that if you start off your day by taking care of yourself, it will set the tone for the rest of your day. Feeling good is not only good for you, but also a contagious emotion to those around you!”
Rachel Ramos, Founder of Lamano & Certified Nail Technician

How it Began

The story of Lamano began with our founder, Rachel Ramos.

As a young girl, Rachel struggled with her mental health. She struggled with feelings of unworthiness, low confidence, and self-criticism. The feelings of anxiety and stress became so internalized in her late twenties that she started seeking relief by biting the skin around her nails which caused major sores and hangnails. Rachel decided to seek care and treatment for her hands. But instead of just treating the sores, she decided to make an effort to rewire this subconscious habit by learning mindful practices and nourishing her nails with all natural ingredients and essential oils; ingredients naturally derived from Mother Earth.

After years of research, she realized there was a gap in the market for products like these—natural products that would not only help people take care of their hands and nails but also be a form of self-care for our minds and souls in today's fast-moving world. 

That's when she decided to create Lamano, an all-natural line of hand care products that help people take care of their hands while also helping them take care of themselves mentally and emotionally through mindful practice.

Slow Living

Rachel's Italian roots have always inspired her to practice slow living, the Italian way of living. She believes that taking the time and space to be present in the moment is the key to happiness.

This is why we carefully select different blends of aroma therapeutic essential oils for our products, to encourage you to take the time and space to be present in the moment, experience a full sensory experience, and feel good about yourself on every level.  

We’ve thoughtfully and scientifically formulated our products to provide you with a mindful experience that not only nourishes your hands and nails but your mind and soul.
