Skin Types: Oily/Breakouts, Combination, Dry/Breakouts, Sun Damaged, Mature
Concerns: Specifically formulated to address adult acne + aging
This ultra-concentrated exfoliating serum offers a novel, dual-pronged approach for addressing both acne and aging. Featuring Moth Bean extract, Vitamin C, Ceramides, and Pumpkin Enzymes, Illumina helps to dramatically reduce inflammation and keep pores clear. Say goodbye to persistent, hormonal, inflamed acne!
Pumpkin Enzymes – 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 – 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 is comparable to that of Retinol. Additionally, it has potent antioxidant properties.
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)
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.
Ceramide Complex – A crucial component of a healthy skin barrier. Ceramides help the skin stay hydrated and in optimal health.

Apply after cleansing and before moisturizing. Pump 1-2 pumps of product onto fingertips. Gently dot finger tips onto left cheek, right cheek, chin and forehead, making sure that the first area you dot doesn’t take all the product. Once 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.
Use only in the evening.
Start with using Illumina every other day, not every day.
Pair with Potentci for best results.
