It was either discontinue this bar or charge a bit more.

The 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Clary Sage Essential Oil we use in this bar is very expensive; and simply the most wonderful Clary Sage Essential Oil in the world. A spectacular and uniquely rich and spicy niceness. Intoxicating. Wonderful. My all time favorite.

The little bits of finely ground organic sage act as an extremely gentle fingertip smooth exfoliant.

Every one of our soaps is made by me or by Cameo. By hand. Our goal is to make the finest bar of soap in the world using the very best ingredients. And we've made no compromise to to that end. Formulated with a carefully portioned ratio of organic and wildcrafted base oils, 100% Pure Essential Oil all blended together with extremely pristine clays and herbals. With craftsmanship.

A Few Words On Ingredients:

And lastly formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than just randomly assembling a list of good ingredients, it's understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios, we do.

Delicate Facial Cleanser

$18.00

Properly cleansing your face truly is the starting place for healthy glowing skin. 

Our Moisturizing Facial Cleanser, a perfectly pH balanced organic facial cleanser is formulated with the same wonderful and nutrient rich ingredients we use in our moisturizers (and more!). 

Your skin will be gently cleansed, deeply moisturized and properly nourished. Never dry or stripped of it's natural oils.

Hand formulated without synthetic foaming agents or toxic thickeners, our natural, organic Moisturizing Facial Cleanser is simply a very pure handmade liquid soap with it's pH ideally adjusted with carefully selected organic ingredients to compliment and nourish your skin. 

Funny thing about soap. There's no better way to cleanse your facial skin than a properly made and properly pH balanced soap. When people say "Don't put soap on your face" it's because they don't really understand skin. Or the true nature of soap. What they should be saying is don't use anything on your skin that challenges the natural pH balance of your skin. Do use products that are nourishing. 

If your skin is oily, dry or if you have unpredictable combination skin chances are your facial cleanser has one or more ingredients your skin perceives as a threat and is attempting to defend itself. Don't worry, your skin will forgive you now that you're considering an upgrade to healthy skincare.

Facial Cleansing Instructions

You Have To Gently Shake Your Luminance Natural Cleanser Before Each Use:  
You'll notice that your facial cleanser separates into a clear soap on the bottom and oils and herbal extractions floating on top. So it's important to give the bottle a shake before every use; before shaking the cleanser pH is a bit too high for facial skin, but after a gentle shake or two the nutrient rich emollients and herbal extractions blend with the soap at a low pH that's just perfect for your skin.
And sure we could easily add something to bind the ingredients and keep them mixed and always ready, but it wouldn't be as healthy. Or as nice.
Adjust Water Temperature:
Not too hot and not too cold; adjust the water temperature as you let it flow over your hands until they say "Mmmmm that feels nice"; that's your skin telling you the temperature is just right. Skin is very smart and if you listen carefully it will you what it likes and needs to be healthy. Lovely and glowing.
Now You're Ready To Cleanse Your Face.
Always remember. Easy does it. Be gentle. Never do anything that irritates, scratches or in any way hurts your skin. If it hurts even a little bit that's your skin's way asking you not to do that. So no wash cloths. No sponges and for heavens sake no machines should ever be used to treat your facial skin. Hands only. Skin on skin becomes so obvious when you think about it.
  1. Ok now that you have your water temperature just right, wet your face and your hands with water. Give an additional quick shake of your cleanser and then spray 3 or 4 spritzes into your hands and work the cleanser into a nice delicate lather. 
  2. Gently massage the lather onto your face using only your hands and fingertips applying lite to moderate pressure. No sponges, wash clothes or anything scratchy, just your fingertips and palms. As you move the lather around your face, in addition to deeply and gently cleansing your face, you'll be giving yourself a gentle and toning muscular massage, stimulating moisture enhancing circulation and softly exfoliating. The more contact your hands have with your skin the more your skin will glow with health.
  3. After a few minutes of cleansing, close your eyes, and splash your face with a couple of splashes of water, being careful not to over-rinse; this very natural cleanser is therapeutic in many ways so to leave a little bit on your skin is very beneficial.
  4. Now while your skin is gently cleansed and nicely moisturized by the cleanser, it still has a bit of typically highly alkaline Tap Water residue. This is where the Rosewater Toner is so critical to rebalance the pH of your skin. So give a few spritzes, move it around your face with your hands and let it almost dry.
  5. If you're using a serum now is the time to apply and then follow with your moisturizer.

French Green Clay Clarifying Facial Mask

$18.00

This clarifying mask is considerably more tingly than the White Clay mask. The trace amounts of carefully selected essential oils in this mask are there help kill the bacteria, removes impurities, and eliminate excess oil. And then the magic of Meadow Foam  Oil to help reduce inflammation and deeply moisturize your skin.

This is the ideal mask for people who are having a hard time with oily skin and break outs. 

Tip: The first time you use this mask wash it off in 5 minutes. And then increase the duration of the mask by 5 minutes each time you apply until you reach the full 15 minutes. This is because the mask uses Tea Tree Oil and while the amount used is very small, some folks will experience mild discomfort if left on too long. Just sneak up on it as you discover how your skin reacts.

Hand Cream

$18.00

We've found the perfect balance between a luxuriously thick and fast-absorbing cream designed to leave your hands velvety soft, deeply hydrated. Never greasy or sticky.  Just moments after applying our hand cream you'll grip your coffee cup both with confidence and with sensually soft hands. 

It's also wonderful to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy.

We prefer to leave our products unscented to reflect the natural scents of the ingredients, but we've had so many requests for a lavender hand cream that we couldn't resist adding a touch of Bulgarian Lavender. So now we have two options: Blissfully Unscented and Lavender, both come in a 4oz glass jar.

A note on scent: we consider synthetic fragrances toxic and so when we do offer a scented product you can rest assured the scent is from 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. So, if you're in a fragrance-free work environment, our subtle Lavender Hand Cream will not trigger a scent alarm. Most folks who suffer from fragrance-induced reactions are reacting to the highly toxic ingredients found in all synthetic fragrances. 

So. We're extremely picky about what we use to make our products. Fact is very ingredient we use in any of our products is a nutrient for your skin. Food for your skin. Yum!

While this is not a product we ever thought we'd make, one of our customers requested an organic natural and absolutely non-toxic personal lubricant. An interesting thought. So we made enough to give samples to a few friends and customers and to say it went over well, is, well, the understatement of the century. 

One of our customers described the experience as having "a Tantric Moment".

Apparently Cacao Butter is an amazing Aphrodisiac. 

Another customer kept coming back for more, asking for the "Holy Cacao" and the name stuck! 

So we decided to more formally test the Holy Cacao online by making a 100 1oz. jars  to sell on our site.  We completely sold out. So it's now officially a part of our body care line.

This is a deep savory lavender. It is completely intoxicating.

If you love lavender then use this toner instead of the rosewater. It will adjust the pH of your skin back to the 6s (thats where it wants to be) after exposing it to tap water (too alkaline in the high 9s). 

Tips: If you flirt with insomnia try spraying this on your pillow at night. The lavender is known for helping folks relax before bed.

"After a thorough search for skin care products that are all-organic and free of toxins, parabens, etc, I came across Luminance. I ordered the introductory skin care gift box to start out and absolutely love taking care of my skin like never before! The wonderful aroma of the gentle cleanser, refreshing rose water toner, and super softening moisturizer feel amazing on my skin. I can use them everyday trusting I have found a brand as passionate as I am in regard to organic products free of everything bad for your skin. I proudly use my Luminance products day and night knowing that in the long term, these products are feeding my thirsty skin the best quality ingredients it needs and not chemicals that negatively impact it in ways I would not know of until years later. Definitely plan on trying out many more Luminance products! You should too!"

-Rosalba M

"I'm always skeptical when trying new skin care products, but Luminance products are excellent. The deep hydrating moisturizer is simply the best I've ever used. The cleanser is a delight with its wonderful, citrus scent. I liked all the products, and appreciate the organic, natural ingredients that go into each one. Exceeded my expectations. Thank you!"

-Susan D

What to expect

After using this trio the first thing you'll notice is how soft your skin is. Customers have describe it as "silky, comfortable, clean, and healthy."

Not tight or sticky and never greasy. 

After a week, you'll notice that your skin is calmer, you have fewer breakouts, and light is reflecting off of the top layers of the skin because it's holding more water. Giving you radiance and appearing more youthful. 

Don't worry, you're not doing long-term damage to your skin for short-term results because we don't use any synthetic or toxic ingredients.

In fact, we only use organic or wild-crafted ingredients that are really really good for the skin.

That also means we leave out the natural ingredients that irritate the skin like Vegetable Glycerin. 

Why it works:

Delicate Cleanser

In order to understand why our products are so effective, first you need to understand the problems that most cleansers create for the skin.

Yes, that's right, most cleansers cause oily, dry, or combination skin and can cause minor acne as well.

This is because most cleansers are actually a detergent, the same kind you wash your laundry or dishes with and they are too harsh. They do a wonderful job of removing dirt and oil but some of that oil is good. 

That oil is called sebum and it's one of the ways your skin protects itself from the elements. When your skin doesn't have enough sebum it will try to make a lot more to protect itself. So by about 3 pm your skin is very oily. 

Or maybe, you are one of those people whose skin isn't disposed to producing very much oil, and your skin stays dry all day. 

It's also possible that your skin only produces oil in certain places and you have T-zone oiliness (also known as combination skin). Regardless of your oil-producing predisposition, you can balance your skin very easily by switching your cleanser. 

If you notice, our cleanser is about 2/3 liquid soap and 1/3 oil and herbal extracts suspended on top.

We believe soap is a good way to clean your skin! As long as it's pH balanced.

You've probably heard people say that you shouldn't use soap on your face. What they really should be saying is "don't use anything that challenges the pH of your skin." Because it's true, if you use a bar soap your skin will feel dry after cleansing. The pH of soap is just too alkaline. 

Our cleanser is a gentle soap-based cleanser that is pH adjusted perfectly for the face and will lather off to remove all the dirt and make-up from the day. 

After using it your skin will feel slippery clean and fresh and never tight or dry.

Rosewater Toner

The benefits of Rosewater on skin are almost endless. It helps soothe every skin condition from Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea, to Acne. Mostly because it's a huge anti-inflammatory. 

And it's just wonderful for sensitive skin.

We also like it as a toner because it's hydrating and it lowers the pH of your skin back down to normal levels after you expose your face to overly-alkaline tap water. (All tap water is too alkaline for facial skin.)

Deep Hydration

The point of a good moisturizer is both to help keep the skin hydrated by absorbing and retaining water and also to feed it vitamins and antioxidants that it can readily use to nourish the upper layers of the skin. 

Because of all the additives and pesticides used in our food these days, having bad digestion is quite common. And when we're not absorbing all the vitamins nutrients we're eating our skin can look dull and lack vitality. 

We've formulated our Deep Hydration moisturizer with a mixture of oils with Myristic, Oleic, Gamma-Linoleic, and Linoleic fatty acid profiles. These oils are dissolve coagulated sebum and nourish all levels of the epidermis. We also use amazing plant extracts and herbal extracts rich in antioxidants.

Tamarind Seed Extract, for example, is an amazing anti-aging ingredient. One of the things that happen as we get older is the collagen in our skin starts to break down and we don't produce it as fast. But collagen is what makes our skin elastic and supple. It brings water to the surface of our skin to give it the highly sought after "glow."  

Tamarind Seed Extract mimics the effects collagen has on the skin. It's a big part of why our Deep Hydration is so good!

Another example is the c02 extracted herbal extract, Sea Buckthorn which has high levels of Vitamin C, E and K and is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help prevent acne and wrinkles! 

Equally importantly are the ingredients we don't use. We don't use any "fillers" as a cheap base like Glycerine, Coconut Oil, and certainly not Mineral Oil.

We don't use any waxes which can clog pores or alcohol which dries out and irritates the skin.

And we definitely don't use any synthetic and/or toxic preservatives.

The clays and herbal extractions gently pull impurities from deep within your pours and the accumulated antioxidants of  the Mycelia and Matcha Tea join with the rich herbal content of the Hydration base to gently detox and richly nourish your face.

The mask is designed for two application styles:

1. It can be applied like a classical mask to be washed away in 10 minutes or so.

2. Or it can be applied thinner, to be left on overnight to occasionally replace your night time moisturizer. By leaving it on overnight you give the mushroom more time to work it's detoxification magic. Either way your skin will feel lovely. Nourished. Detoxed.

Ingredients (All Organic or Wild-Crafted): Lavender water. Oils: Jojoba. Kukui, Argan, Meadowfoam, Red Radish Root, Blue Chamomile Herbal. Emulsifier: Sorbitan Olivate. Herbals & Extracts: Maitake Mushroom Mycelia, Calendula, Tamarind Seed, Horsetail and Matcha Tea.   

If you have questions give me a call or send an email, I'll always be pleased to hear from you and will do my best to help you.

Marzipan Soap

$7.00

Marzipan Soap. The most common reaction to this soap is "Oh my god I could just eat it". That's how authentic the fragrance holds to classic Marzipan. Of course it would't hurt you if you took a few bites; but you might have an interesting night.

Every one of our soaps is made by me or by Cameo. By hand. We set out to make the finest bar of soap in the world and we've made no compromise to to that end; formulated with a carefully portioned ratio of organic and wildcrafted base oils, 100% Pure Essential Oils blended with extremely pristine clays and herbals. Craftsmanship. And care.

It all comes together in small temperature controlled batches into an extraordinary bar of soap. Gently cleansing. Deeply moisturizing. Richly lathering. Very very nice.

Men's Aftershave

$20.00

Finally! An organic Men's Aftershave. Designed and pH balanced specifically for men; completely natural and absolutely non toxic. With therapeutic properties men need after shaving to help keep their faces well tended. And healthy.

Every time you shave you irritate your skin and give it a little rash. Shaving is hard on your skin. 

This aftershave lotion is actually a face lotion that has been pH adjusted and designed for men with an overwhelming amount of anti-inflammatory oils and herbs to calm the skin after shaving. And by the way, no stinging, drying alcohols or astringents.

A Few Words On Ingredients:

Obviously, pristine super quality ingredients are very important. Every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted; ours are. Ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non threatening; ours are. And lastly formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than just randomly assembling a list of good ingredients, it's understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios, we do.

Natural Deodorant

$15.00

No zinc. No aluminum. No Zinc. No toxins. Nothing synthetic. Nothing with tiny particles to clog pours. 

And absolutely none of the extremely unhealthy synthetic ingredients designed to stop perspiration. Perspiration is good and that's not what gets stinky anyway, unless you've been eating asparagus or lots of garlic, and that's not really all that bad.

Our Natural Deodorant simply inhibits the growth of stinky producing bacteria with an organic enzymic liquid derived from the skins of Red Radish Root. Suspended in our pure organic Rose Water with a tiny touch of 100% Pure Clary Sage Essential Oil. 

Into your freshly cleansed underarms, a few spritzes and you'll be on your way. Now some folks may need a couple of reinforcing spritzes at the end of the day so we recommend you have an extra bottle on hand. We should also mention it feels great on your skin.  Hooray!
