Illumina Decongesting Radiance Concentrate

$54.00$145.00

This ultra-concentrated exfoliating serum offers a novel dual-pronged approach for addressing both acne and aging.

Illumina has eliminated every single bit of congestion in my skin and it is now perfectly smooth, something I have never consistently experienced with my skin before. It is so radiant and luminous, something I saw within 3 days of using it but has only become better as time has gone on. After more than a decade of struggling with my skin and waiting for it to just be smooth and pretty and glow-y, I finally have the skin of my dreams!

About Illumina Radiance Concentrate

 

Illumina is a powerful yet gentle exfoliating serum that uses botanical extracts and enzymes instead of harsh acids or retinoids to balance cellular turnover and revive the skin’s natural glow and smooth texture.

It also contains 5% Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (a stable form of Vitamin C) to help accelerate wound healing and repair damage.

Illumina is to be used 1x per week – 1x per day in the evening. We recommend starting by using Il every other evening, then adjusting if needed.

Apply after cleansing/toning and before moisturizer/oils. For best results (due to product synergy), use with Potentci Hydrating Milk.

If using Illumina, do not apply any other exfoliating product.

Featured Botanicals

White Willow Bark – White willow bark extract 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.
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.
Vigna Acontifolia Seed – 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.
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. 
Green Tea – Our green tea extract 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 conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is the hormone that causes acne. Green tea drastically reduces inflammation and regulates sebum production. (Decaf)
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). Our 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%.

Non-irritating exfoliation complex

Non-irritating exfoliation complex

A proprietary 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.

Anti-inflammatory complex

Anti-inflammatory complex

At the root of acne is inflammation. We’ve sourced supplement-quality extracts of green tea, magnolia bark and skullcap root that provide concentrated amounts of the anti-inflammatory flavonoids baicalin, EGCG and the lignan honokiol. These natural chemicals are some of the most powerful anti-inflammatories available.

Antioxidant Complex

Antioxidant Complex

Oxidation is the leading cause of pre-mature aging. It also contributes to acne because when sebum oxidizes, it becomes comedogenic and thick. Our antioxidant complex comprises a whopping 16% of this formula and includes stable vitamin C and green tea polyphenols.

Pore Cleansing Complex

Pore Cleansing Complex

Acne can be thought of as a pearl of sebum and bacteria growing around a “seed” of dead skin clumped with hardened sebum. Salicylic acid naturally found in willow bark scours the inside of pores to keep them clear, while skin-identical ceramides minimize the incidence of impactions by keeping the skin hydrated and elastic.

Wound Healing Complex

Wound Healing Complex

Sterols (a type of lipid) derived from pomegranate help soothe inflamed, irritated and dry skin. Powerful anti-inflammatory extracts and Vitamin C help skin to heal blemishes faster and with less scarring. We use a preservative that is extremely gentle and good for even very sensitive skin.

Anti-aging Complex

Anti-aging Complex

Moth Bean extract has been shown to stimulate collagen to the same degree as retinol. Antioxidants repair existing damage while blocking future damage. Vitamin C speeds healing and brightens skin. Ceramides repair the skin barrier, visibly improving elasticity and the skin’s ability to shield itself from environmental stress.

Hydration Complex

Hydration Complex

Acneic skin is often damaged and needs supportive, healing ingredients, nothing harsh and drying. In fact, oily and acne-prone skin can often indicate that skin is severely lacking in hydration. Our skin barrier often needs supplementation with ceramides and sterols to properly retain moisture and elasticity. Properly hydrating skin brings a noticeable decrease in acne.
