Illumina is a powerful yet incredibly gentle exfoliating acne clearing serum. A proprietary and non-irritating exfoliation complex consisting of three powerful botanicals including pumpkin enzyme, moth bean plant (also know as Nature’s retinol) and white willow bark and a next generation alpha-hydroxy acid. This complex works to normalize skin cell turnover, boost collagen production and excavate clogged pores. Free of essential oils and suitable for sensitive skin types. *For all skin types, especially dull, congested, acneic and aging skin.
7 serums in 1: Non-irritating Exfoliation, Anti-inflammatory, Antioxidant, Pore Cleansing, Healing, Anti-aging, Hydrating
+ Pumpkin Enzymes - AHAs or traditional enzymes such as papain or bromelain tend to be irritating on the skin. Unlike traditional materials, pumpkin enzymes show an uncommonly mild irritation profile in tests.
+ Vigna Acontifolia Seed Extract - Has a demonstrated ability to help boost cell renewal, similar to retinol, without the associated irritation. When used at similar levels, the extract’s efficacy comparable to that of Retinol. Additionally, it has potent antioxidant properties.
+ White Willow Bark Extract - Acts as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent. Willow bark extracts are employed as a natural source of salicylic acid. Provides the benefits of salicylic acid such as BHA exfoliation, and anti-microbial action, without any of the typically associated irritation.
+ Green Tea - Supplement quality and contains a high percentage of EGCG. EGCG has been shown to be 25 to 100 times more potent than vitamins C and E in terms of antioxidant activity. ECGC prevents conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is the hormone that causes acne. Green tea drastically reduces inflammation and regulates sebum production.
+ Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate – Several studies have shown this form of Vitamin C to be as effective as retinol in reducing acne lesions. In one study, acne lesions decreased by 20% after 4 weeks, and 48% after 8 weeks using SAP and 21% and 49% using retinol.
+ Ceramide Complex – A crucial component of a healthy skin barrier. The lipid matrix of a healthy, protective skin barrier consists of fatty acids (found in oils and butters), ceramides and cholesterol (much more difficult to find as topical supplements). This ceramide complex provides ceramides and cholesterol to help replenish these key components of the stratum corneum. Ceramides help the skin stay hydrated and in optimal health.
+ Tamarind Seed Extract – Despite there being many types of tamarind seed extract available, the one we use is a specific polysaccharide that has shown to be even more effective than hyaluronic acid in a clinical trial that directly compared the two ingredients. Unlike HA, it does NOT cause inflammation or draw moisture from the skin. Tamarind Seed is highly moisturizing and increases skin hydration by close to 50%.
Size: 30 ml / 1 fl oz
In the evening, after cleansing, apply 1-2 pumps to clean skin. Because it is so powerful, many find they can decrease the frequency of use to 1-2x per week after an initial period of 1-6 months of daily use.
