Premium Peptide Facial Moisturizer

Organic. 100% Plant Based. Clean.

Nourish, Replenish and Balance Your Skin on a Deep Level. A Sophisticated Moisturizer That'll Bring Your Skin to a More Youthful, Healthy Glow.

The Cleanest Skincare Anywhere

Premium Tamarind Seed Moisturizer with Peptides (organic bonded amino proteins) builds upon the foundation of everything we've learned over the last 12 years of making Luminance Skincare, with the additional leverage of modern peptide bio-science.

Specifically, we've leveraged two protein structures to encourage your skin to produce more moisture holding collagen along with a wonderful collection of organic and wildcrafted oils and naturally derived extractions from Tamarind Seed. 


We're using Tamarind Seed Extractions to nourish and protect your facial skin.

Tamarind Seed Extract naturally enhances elasticity and moisture retention in the upper layers of your skin while sending collagen stimulating amino acids deeply into your skin to encourage collagen production. Your skin will glow with renewed flexibility and comfort.

While this facial moisturizer is specifically designed to complement and follow the application of our Luminance Premium Facial Serum, it's also a magnificent standalone moisturizer. My favorite part of this moisturizer is the way it conditions skin. Smooth. Luxurious. Glowing.


A Little Goes A Long Way So Only A Thin Coat Is Necessary

    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

     Matrix Peptide

    Matrix Peptides also known as Tripeptide-29 and sometimes as Collagen Tripeptide, is a peptide used in skincare products for its potential anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating properties. Let's analyze the potential benefits of Tripeptide-29 for human facial skin:

    Benefits for Human Facial Skin:

    1. Collagen Support: Tripeptide-29 is designed to support collagen production and maintenance. Collagen is a crucial protein that provides skin with firmness, elasticity, and a youthful appearance. By promoting collagen synthesis, Tripeptide-29 can contribute to smoother and more supple skin.
    2. Wrinkle Reduction: The increased collagen production encouraged by Tripeptide-29 can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Enhanced collagen levels can lead to improved skin texture and a reduction in the depth of wrinkles. Very effective on wrinkle reduction around the corners of the eyes.
    3. Skin Firmness: By stimulating collagen synthesis, Tripeptide-29 may help improve skin's overall firmness and resilience, leading to a more lifted and youthful appearance.
    4. Hydration Retention: Some peptides, including Tripeptide-29, can assist in retaining moisture in the skin. Well-hydrated skin appears plumper and more radiant.
    5. Anti-Aging Effects: The combination of collagen support, improved skin texture, and enhanced hydration can collectively contribute to an overall anti-aging effect on the skin.


    Hexapeptide often referred to as Hexapeptide-1, is a peptide used in skincare products for its potential anti-aging and skin-improving properties. Let's analyze the potential benefits of hexapeptide for human facial skin:

    Benefits for Human Facial Skin:

    1. Wrinkle Reduction: Hexapeptide is often included in skincare formulations for its potential to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is believed to work by inhibiting the muscle contractions that lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles around corners of the eyes.
    2. Relaxing Expression Lines: Hexapeptide is known for its muscle-relaxing properties, which can help relax facial muscles responsible for expression lines, such as forehead lines and crow's feet.
    3. Non-Invasive Alternative: Hexapeptide is sometimes promoted as a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic procedures like Botox injections. It provides a more temporary and topical solution for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
    4. Collagen Support: Some studies suggest that hexapeptide may promote the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin's firmness, elasticity, and overall youthfulness.
    5. Moisturization and Hydration: Hexapeptide-containing products may offer additional moisturization benefits, helping to keep the skin hydrated and supple.
    6. Overall Skin Appearance: By targeting dynamic wrinkles and supporting collagen production, hexapeptide-containing products may contribute to a smoother, more youthful complexion.

    • Enhanced Skin Texture: Vitamins in tamarind seed extract work synergistically to improve skin texture, making it smoother and more even.

    • Improved Skin Tone: Vitamin B complex and vitamin A (beta-carotene) can help even out skin tone, reducing the appearance of blotchiness and redness.

      Benefits of Amino Acids in Tamarind Seed Extract for Human Facial Skin:

      These amino acids play vital roles in maintaining the health, structure, and appearance of the skin. A balanced intake of essential amino acids through diet and skincare products can contribute to optimal skin health and a youthful complexion.

      My favorite skincare

      My skin is loving this product and so do I!

      I won’t use anything else!

      I’ve been using this moisturizer on top of the Premium Serum for several years. Even if my skin didn’t look and feel this good, I would the fact that I’m not smearing questionable chemicals and artificial coloring all over my face every day! I don’t like heavy, greasy moisturizers as they clog my pores and I get little white heads. These products glide on beautifully and absorb, leaving my skin silky and glowing. I’m completely devoted!

      Soft, silky and non greasy

      I've bee using Premium Peptide Facial Moisturizer for five years or so. It has replaced another nice facial lotion (Borghese). It's light, non greasy, and leaves my skin silky and soft. I appreciate that it's 100% plant based, which is why I shifted -- and also that it's a small business.

      Great product

      I have used Premium Facial Moisturizer for years and won’t use anything else. Luxurious and Clean! Love it.

      Elaine Gubbins
      Great products

      I've been using Kim's products for a decade, since a best friend gave me them for Christmas. She got them in the Farmers Market before it became Luminance. I live on the East Coast, so I started ordering them directly. Through the years the delivery is always excellent and the products have only gotten better. Mostly, I trust Kim to continue creating great organic skin care.

      Mary Snyder
      Best I have ever used.

      I try to use natural products, organic when possible. I am over 70 so moisturizing is important. I started with the regular moisturizer and liked it a lot. Since I have been using the premium, I notice even greater improvement in the appearance and feel of my skin. I sent some to my daughter, starting out with the regular, then decided to gift her the premium. She texted saying she sees what I mean about the premium moisturizer. Two fans for life. Thank you for this safe and effective moisturizer.


      Haven’t had any complaints or issues since using this product. It adjusts and absorbs well into the skin, and has definitely a lighter feel to it. Even though I find it to be very light on the skin, it still is effective on it and I do feel is helping it. Not sure what the mechanism is behind that. I don’t know if it’s great enough to continue to buy at this price, however. I am thinking I will stick to more simple, pure oils for my face. I also live in Canada so it’s way more expensive for me when you factor in the shipping and other fees associated with that and once the US dollars is converted into cad dollars!!
