    At Luminance Skincare, using safe, high-quality ingredients is very important. We believe every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted. Ours are. We believe that ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non-threatening. Ours are. Formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than assembling a list of good ingredients, it’s understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios. We always do.

    Benefits Of Key Ingredients

    Apricot Kernel Oil 

    It is derived from the kernels (seeds) of apricots and is valued for its lightweight texture and potential benefits for skin care. Let's delve into the analysis of the components and potential benefits of apricot kernel oil for human facial skin:

    Fatty Acids:

    1. Oleic Acid: Apricot kernel oil contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that helps moisturize and soften the skin. It forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface, preventing moisture loss and promoting hydration.
    2. Linoleic Acid: Apricot kernel oil also contains linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid that supports the skin's barrier function and overall health. Linoleic acid is particularly beneficial for maintaining balanced sebum production, making it suitable for various skin types.

    Vitamins:

    1. Vitamin E: Apricot kernel oil is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radicals, thereby supporting a healthy and youthful appearance.

    Phytosterols: Apricot kernel oil contains phytosterols, plant compounds with anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds can contribute to reducing redness and soothing irritated skin.

    Benefits for Human Facial Skin:

    1. Lightweight Moisturization: Apricot kernel oil's lightweight texture makes it easily absorbed by the skin. It provides effective hydration without feeling greasy, making it suitable for both dry and oily skin types.
    2. Antioxidant Protection: The vitamin E content in apricot kernel oil provides antioxidant benefits, helping to combat oxidative stress and premature aging caused by free radicals.
    3. Nourishing and Softening: Oleic acid in apricot kernel oil helps nourish and soften the skin, enhancing its texture and overall appearance.
    4. Supporting Skin Barrier: The fatty acids, especially linoleic acid, contribute to maintaining the skin's natural barrier function. This can help lock in moisture and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
    5. Calming Irritation: Apricot kernel oil's phytosterols have anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated skin and alleviate redness.
    6. Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Vitamin E's antioxidant properties support skin health and may contribute to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
    7. Gentle for Sensitive Skin: The mild nature of apricot kernel oil makes it suitable for sensitive skin, as it is less likely to cause irritation.
    8. Makeup Removal: Apricot kernel oil can be used as a gentle makeup remover, helping to dissolve makeup and impurities without stripping the skin's natural oils.

    Avocado Oil 

    It is another natural oil that is commonly used in skincare for its potential benefits. Let's analyze the key components and how they can benefit human facial skin:

    Fatty Acids:

    1. Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA): Avocado oil is rich in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that provides deep moisturization to the skin. Oleic acid helps maintain the skin's lipid barrier, preventing water loss and promoting hydration.
    2. Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA): Avocado oil also contains some linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that supports the skin's barrier function and helps maintain its overall health.
    3. Saturated Fatty Acids: Avocado oil contains smaller amounts of saturated fatty acids. These can help form a protective layer on the skin's surface, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin soft and supple.

    Vitamins:

    1. Vitamin E: Avocado oil is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Vitamin E contributes to skin nourishment, supports a healthy complexion, and may reduce signs of aging.
    2. Vitamin D: Although present in small amounts, avocado oil contains some vitamin D. Vitamin D plays a role in skin health and can contribute to the overall well-being of the skin.

    Phytosterols: Avocado oil contains various phytosterols, including beta-sitosterol. These compounds have anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe and calm irritated skin.

    Benefits for Human Facial Skin:

    1. Deep Hydration: The combination of oleic acid and essential fatty acids in avocado oil helps to deeply moisturize the skin, leaving it soft and supple. This can be especially beneficial for dry or dehydrated skin.
    2. Antioxidant Protection: Vitamin E in avocado oil provides antioxidant benefits, protecting the skin from free radical damage and supporting a youthful appearance.
    3. Skin Barrier Support: The fatty acids in avocado oil strengthen the skin's natural barrier, helping to retain moisture and improve the skin's texture and elasticity.
    4. Soothing Irritation: The phytosterols in avocado oil have anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and alleviate redness and irritation, making it suitable for sensitive or inflamed skin.
    5. Wound Healing: Avocado oil's vitamin E content can aid in wound healing and reducing the appearance of scars, supporting the skin's natural regeneration process.
    6. Collagen Production: Vitamin C, found in smaller amounts in avocado oil, is important for collagen production, which is essential for maintaining skin's firmness and elasticity.
    7. Sun Protection: While not a replacement for sunscreen, the presence of vitamin E and other antioxidants in avocado oil may offer some mild protection against UV damage.

    This is the best hand creme ever. It’s not sticky or greasy at all. It just dissolve's beautifully and leaves hands feeling so soft. I love the natural ingredients as in all their products. Ive only used the unscented hand creme.

    a bit greasy

    I like the fact that I can trust the ingredients to be non-toxic, but I found it to be a bit greasy. Also, rather expensive for a 4 oz. jar. Will probably not buy again.

    Fabulous Cream

    I love this hand cream. It soaks in more quickly than the Body Lotion used as a hand cream. The Lavender scent is strong (which I like), but it mellows out after a few minutes. I often use this cream as a night ritual, just before i turn out the bedside light, and love falling asleep surrounded by soothing fields of lavender. ♡
