The Power of ILLUMINE

We know it’s hard not to stare at that sublime and devastatingly beautiful bottle, but the Illumine Face Oil is so much more than its good looks.

Let’s start with the formula. There was no expense or time spared when it came to perfecting this unique and potent formulation. As with all of our Henné products, filler ingredients are never even considered, so if you see an ingredient listed, know that it serves a very specific and important purpose.

With so many hero ingredients in Illumine, we’re going to focus on three in this blog post: elderberry oil, baobab oil and bearberry extract.

Elderberry Oil

A Scandinavian favorite, elderberry oil is rich in flavanols and phenolics which help relieve UV-induced skin damage while the high ratio of lipids and unsaturated fatty acids smoothen and hydrate skin.

Baobab Oil

The inimitable baobab oil gets its healing powers from 500 year old baobab trees. It’s chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins that help lighten dark spots and speed up the rejuvenation of skin. Baobab oil also contains more vitamin C than almost any other fruit oil, which helps brighten the complexion and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Bearberry Extract

Last but not least out of the three-ingredient highlight is bearberry extract. Bearberries are highly revered in Sweden and for very good reason. Bearberry extract contains a high level of arbutin, which helps combat hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Antioxidants in bearberry extract work hard to protect skin from free radicals.
