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; results confirm that pumpkin is only slightly more irritating than glycerin.
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.
Vigna Acontifolia Seed – 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.
Green Tea – is 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 the conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is the hormone that causes acne. Green tea drastically reduces inflammation and regulates sebum production. (Decaf)
White Willow Bark – acts as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent. Willow Bark Extracts are employed as a natural source of salicylic acid. White Willow Bark provides the benefits of salicylic acid such as BHA exfoliation, and anti-microbial action, without any of the typically associated irritation.
Ceramide Complex – A crucial component of a healthy skin barrier. Ceramides help the skin stay hydrated and in optimal health.
1 oz./ 30 ml.
Illumina is to be used 1x per day – at night. 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.
It is compatible with all oils and moisturizers and will not cause pilling. Apply after cleansing/toning and before moisturizer/oils.
For best results, use with Potentci Hydrating Milk. If using Illumina, do not apply any other exfoliating product.
Recommended Application Method:
Apply after cleansing. Shake POTENTCI well, and apply 1-2 pumps to the skin, massaging in well. Follow with sunscreen.
Apply after cleansing. Apply 1-2 pumps ILLUMINA. Shake POTENTCI well, and apply 1-2 pumps to the skin, massaging in well. Follow with oil or balm, if more hydration is desired.
Pump 1-2 pumps of product onto fingertips. Gently dot fingertips onto the left cheek, right cheek, chin, and forehead, making sure that the first area you dot doesn’t take all the product. Once the product has been evenly divided between the 4 quadrants of the face, use both hands to massage product into the skin, working to cover the entire facial area. If there is not enough product, use 1/2 more pump where needed. If there is too much product, spread it onto neck as best as possible. Wait 1-2 minutes before applying next product.
The only additional products we recommend besides Illumina and Potentci are a cleanser, sunscreen in the am, and a balm or oil if more moisture is desired in the pm.
**Important: These products are extremely concentrated (each is about 50% actives, compared to 5-15% for 99% of all skincare) and a little bit goes a very long way, making them more economical than you might think. Over-application of the product (very common!) may result in a coated or sticky feeling to the skin, as well as a waste of valuable product.
Please be very mindful of the recommended amounts to apply. When in doubt, apply an extremely sheer layer, massaged into the skin very, very well. Remember less is more.**
