The creation of this product was a really trying time. We wanted the absolute best face serum on the planet and one that would lighten and brighten the skin dramatically starting with… the very first application.
The Luminous Serum through much trial and error became just that. The most profound information came to us regarding Algowhite. After 28 consecutive days of use 90% found that it had a profound whitening effect and 70% percent found their skin to be…well…more Luminous!
We also added to this formulation the cosmeceutical ingredient Acetyl-D- Glucosamine which was studied in a double blind study, and proved to have a lightening effect on skin.
Included in this serum profile are the robust effects of Amla and Songyi Extract which filter and provide sun protection from UV.Additionally, a blend of three citrus oils compliment its natural herbal smell.

- Acetyl Glucosamine (D) – N -acetyl glucosamine is an amino monosaccharide that was developed as a pigment-lightening cosmeceutical. It decreases melanin production by inhibiting tyrosinase glycosylation. A randomized, double-blind study reported that the application of 2% N -acetyl glucosamine twice daily for five weeks provided a lightening effect.
