Hi! I'm Indie Lee! Thanks for asking : ) After being diagnosed with a brain tumor and given six months to live in 2009 (happy ending - brain tumor was successfully removed and I'm still here!), it has been my mission to educate and empower others to make informed, healthy life choices and to create a line of clean products that are as effective as they are safe. I started making products in my kitchen and have embraced the journey from the start through the present. I am so inspired by you, the people who join me on this journey. Please check my events page for upcoming masterclasses and speaking engagements. I highly recommend the DIY facials--we have a blast! xo, Indie
To us, clean beauty means products that are mindfully and honestly created, produced and offered without the use of any ingredients that are proven or suspected of causing harm. When in doubt, formulate out. In addition, those products should be made from ethically sourced ingredients with the health of the user and the preservation of the environment in mind.
Our products are grounded in nature, supported by science and inspired by life. We believe the products you choose should be effective, enjoyable, healthy and from a company you believe in. When you purchase an Indie Lee product, you can trust that every ingredient in the formula has been ethically-sourced and is disclosed for your knowledge and empowerment. Every product has a purpose and has been rigorously tested for efficacy.
We love nature and it inspires everything we do. Our commitment to the Earth is something we take very seriously. We use glass bottles and jars where possible and our packaging is made of FSC certified paper.
So glad you asked! We happen to have many exciting products in the works. To be the first to hear about these launches, sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Instagram. :)
Yes, we do! You can learn more about our Affiliate Program here.
We are committed to nontoxic and eco-friendly practices. Indie Lee is a member of the Leaping Bunny Program and uses FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper for all outer packaging.
We are also in the process of having all our products COSMOS certified (shop COSMOS products here). COSMOS is one of the leading third-party global certification processes regulated by leaders in biodiversity safety and sustainability. We believe that COSMOS was the right global certification to seek since there is little regulation in the US personal care industry. It is an ever-changing certification, meaning we will continuously hold ourselves accountable to the highest standard.
All of our products are manufactured in the USA.
Absolutely not. Team Indie = animal lovers. We would not do anything to harm our furry friends.
Indie Lee is a member of the Leaping Bunny Program and we do not purchase from suppliers who are unable to prove they are cruelty-free.
Who doesn't love samples!? We offer two free samples with all website orders. Sample options can be viewed by going to your Cart and clicking or tapping "Select 2 Free Samples." Once you've made your selections, click or tap "Add Samples to Cart" to add them to your order.
You can also sample our products at an authorized Stockist near you.
Yes, we do! Gift Cards can be found here and are available in denominations of $25, $50, $75, $100, and $250.
Gift cards are sent to the email address used at checkout immediately after purchase. For gifting, you can print the email or forward it to the recipient.
Please note that our gift cards are digital and no physical gift card will be mailed.
Of course, we're happy to help guide you to the best products for your unique skin!

All Indie Lee products have at least a 30-month shelf life from the date of manufacture. We recommend using your products within within 6 months after opening for the best experience.
For optimal freshness, store products at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. While keeping products in the refrigerator can make application feel quite refreshing (try this with CoQ-10 Toner in the summer!), it will not make them last longer. And remember, for products formulated with naturally-derived ingredients, separation is natural!
Your health and well being is our top priority. It is our mission to empower you with all of the product and ingredient knowledge possible. Every individual product page contains a full list of the ingredients in that product.
Everything you smell is real and natural from botanically-based ingredients! We do not use any synthetic fragrance in our products.
We acknowledge that every pregnancy is different, and for that reason, we recommend always discussing your product selections with your physician.
Certain ingredients are flagged for caution during pregnancy, including retinoids and acne-fighters (such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid). While the majority of our products are free of these flagged ingredients, wintergreen-derived salicylic acid is present in our Banish Solution, Banish Stick, Clearing Mask, Gentle Daily Peel, I-Waken Resurfacing Mask, and Overnight Banish Gel.
Our Mineral Sunscreen offers SPF 30 protection and is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.
Indie always recommends walking on the shady side of the street and wearing a big hat and fabulous sunglasses as part of her sun protection ritual!
Our Brightening Cleanser contains Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein. Everything else is formulated without gluten!
All but two of our products are vegan. Nourishing Lip Tint and I-Waken Eye Serum are "beegan" (they contain humanely-sourced beeswax, bees are not harmed).
Yes, please come find us! Authorized retailers are listed on our Stockists page. We are constantly adding new retail partners so be sure to check back for updates.
First and foremost, make sure all empties are properly cleaned before recycling! Uncleaned empties are not recyclable, cause delays in sorting, and ultimately end up in the trash. If you're not sure how to clean your empties, our Empties Cleaning Guide provides some helpful tips.
Once your empties are clean and dry, find a beauty product recycling drop-off location near you on our Stockists page by clicking the 'Recycling Drop Off Location' tag under the map search field. You can also mail any clean, hard-to-recycle packaging directly to Pact Collective.

All prices are in USD.
Our website accepts one discount code per order. If you have more than one code, you can redeem them by placing multiple separate orders.
1. Remove any spaces, quotes, periods or asterisks, as these are not part of the code.
2. Log in to your Indie Lee Account before proceeding to checkout. Some of our gift card codes and discount codes are linked to a specific email address and will not work unless you're logged in.
3. Make sure the discount code is still valid. Expiration dates are usually noted at the bottom of our emails, but some promotion timeframes are not publicized. Indie Lee reserves the right to end promotions for any reason without notice.
If these tips don't work, please take a screenshot of any error messages you're seeing and Contact Us. We'll be happy to help!

Installments with Afterpay is a service that allows you to make purchases now and pay for them in four payments made every 2 weeks without any interest.

First-time customers will need to register with Afterpay and provide payment details, as usual, returning customers simply log in to make their purchase. It’s that easy!
Please note that all items in your shopping bag must be eligible for Installments with Afterpay. A minimum purchase amount of $100 applies for orders with Afterpay and you must meet additional eligibility requirements to qualify.
Installments with Afterpay can be applied to purchases over $100 made on indielee.com.
Afterpay is only offered to our customers who have a US billing address, US shipping address, a US Visa or Mastercard (credit or debit card), or American Express and a US mobile phone number. Customers with international billing addresses, shipping addresses, and/or phone numbers will not be able to set up an account with Afterpay.

Afterpay will be notified once your refund is processed. Your payment plan will be automatically adjusted to reflect the new total order value starting with the last payment and working backward. Note that the length of payments will never go beyond six weeks after the purchase date. In the case where a refund amount is larger than 25% of the total order, Afterpay will eliminate the fourth instalment payment and charge the remaining amount to your third payment.
