We’re proud of the ingredients that go into our products, so we put this deep dive together to help explain all that is in them.
Charcoal Face Wash Daily Detox
Our Charcoal Face Wash is a powerful yet gentle cleanser that contains activated charcoal, rose flower oil, and Centella Asiatica. Here's a closer look at each ingredient:
Activated Charcoal: This potent ingredient is excellent for drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin. It helps to remove excess oil, dirt, and other impurities that can clog pores and cause breakouts.
Rose Flower Oil: This ingredient is an excellent moisturizer that helps soothe and hydrate the skin. It contains a variety of vitamins and antioxidants that can help to nourish and protect the skin. It also has a pleasant, natural scent that can help to improve your overall skincare experience.
Centella Asiatica: A powerful antioxidant, Centella Asiatica helps to fight free radicals and reduce the look of inflammation. It can help to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Daily Face Moisturizer
Our Daily Face Moisturizer is an excellent option for those with dry or dehydrated skin. Among the key ingredients it contains are Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Apple Extract, and Ginger Extract. Here's a closer look at each ingredient:
Meadowfoam Seed Oil: This ingredient is an excellent emollient that helps to lock in moisture and keep the skin hydrated. It's particularly effective for dry or dehydrated skin, as it helps to prevent moisture loss and improve skin texture. Meadowfoam seed oil is also rich in antioxidants, which can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors.
Apple Extract: Rich in antioxidants and vitamins that can help to improve skin texture and prevent damage from environmental stressors, Apple Extract also contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) that can help to exfoliate the skin and improve cell turnover. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin tone and texture.
Ginger Extract: This ingredient is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and can help to soothe irritated skin. It also contains antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors. Ginger extract is particularly effective for reducing redness and inflammation in the skin, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin.
Dark Circle Defense Balm
Dark circles are a common skincare concern, and our Dark Circle Defense is here to help. It contains Niacinamide, Caffeine, and Lemon Extract. Here’s what we pack into our Dark Circle Defense Balm to help fight tired, bleated eyes.
Niacinamide: This form of Vitamin B3 helps to reduce the look of inflammation and improve skin texture. It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve overall skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Niacinamide is also a potent antioxidant that can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors.
Caffeine: This powerful ingredient can help to reduce puffiness and dark circles. It works by constricting blood vessels, which can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes. Caffeine also has antioxidant properties that can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors.
Lemon Extract: This ingredient is an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is essential for collagen synthesis and skin brightening. It can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and improve overall skin tone and texture.
Charcoal Scrub Deep Detox
Exfoliation is an essential step in any skincare routine as it helps to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin. Regular exfoliation can also enhance the absorption of other skincare products, allowing them to work more effectively. Using our Charcoal Scrub Deep Detox can help to achieve a brighter, smoother and healthier-looking complexion.
Charcoal: A mainstay ingredient in our product line, charcoal draws out impurities and toxins from the skin. It can help to unclog pores and reduce the appearance of blackheads, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and renewed.
Rosemary Leaf Extract: a natural antioxidant, rosemary leaf extract can help to protect the skin against environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe and calm irritated skin.
Green Tea Extract: another potent antioxidant, green tea extract can help protect skin from free radical damage. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help to reduce redness and irritation. Additionally, green tea extract has been shown to improve skin elasticity and firmness, making it a valuable ingredient in anti-aging skincare products.
Wrinkle Defense Serum
It's essential for men to take care of their skin and incorporate anti-aging products, such as our Wrinkle Defense Serum, into their skincare routine. As men age, their skin loses elasticity and moisture, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Using our Wrinkle Defense Serum can help to combat these issues and promote a more youthful and radiant complexion.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help to brighten the skin, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also promotes collagen production, which can help to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Hyaluronic Acid: A natural substance found in the skin, hyaluronic acid helps to retain moisture and keep it hydrated. As we age, our natural production of hyaluronic acid decreases, resulting in dry and dehydrated skin. Adding a hyaluronic acid serum to your skincare routine can help to replenish the skin's moisture levels, resulting in a more plump and youthful appearance.
Pomegranate Extract: rich in antioxidants, pomegranate extract can help to protect the skin from free radical damage, which can lead to premature aging. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. Additionally, pomegranate extract has been shown to promote collagen production, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
Using a recovery oil, such as our Recovery Oil, is an important step in any skincare routine for men. It helps to hydrate and nourish the skin, protect against sun damage, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin is exposed to various environmental stressors that can cause damage and accelerate the aging process. Using a recovery oil can help to replenish the skin's natural oils and restore a healthy, youthful-looking complexion.
Squalane is a lightweight, non-comedogenic oil that is easily absorbed by the skin. It helps to moisturize and hydrate the skin, without leaving a greasy or heavy feeling. Squalane is a natural antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage and promote a more radiant complexion.
Argan Oil is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, making it a powerful moisturizer that can help to nourish and hydrate the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. Argan oil is high in antioxidants, which can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and prevent premature aging.
Together, Squalane and Argan Oil in Lumin's After Hours Recovery Oil create a potent blend that helps to replenish and nourish the skin, promote a more youthful-looking complexion, and protect against the damaging effects of the environment.
Suffice it to say, we carefully selected the ingredients in all of our products to help you achieve healthy, glowing skin.
