Savant Apothecary

Luminous Face Cream

$85

A very comfortable, cool and refreshing moisturiser with a soft velvet like finish. Made to absorb well and provide both hydration and nourishment. Made also for people who need one cream that will be effective enough to use on its own. The star of Savants range Luminous not only feels wonderful but for many of you will be the first moisturiser that will actually change your skin for the better. Not just sometimes but all the time. 

Made with a 120ml volume to enable sustained night and day use from forehead to chest so both very important parts of you are looked after.

Luminous contains a good dose of oil soluble Vitamin C meaning there is no stinging or redness when using it. Vitamin C makes the skin smooth to touch, very clear and consistently fresh. 

Luminous has a very natural and clean ingredient list focused around its texture and all day comfort for the skin. Shea butter for good creaminess and stiff body, Aloe for water hydration, Camelia and avocado for good nutritious fats but fine texture. Being backed up by Vitamin C means your skin is consistently good.  It feels fresh, looks fresh, has less reliance on scrubs and is less likely to get congested or dry.

Long term Vitamin C and Vitamin A use produces a skin that has much less sun damage.  This means it stays clear of sun marks, has a better density, much less scaliness and looks creamy and hydrated. 

The higher the dose of Vitamin C the more pronounced these effects are. Please see Luminous 10% and Luminous 15% if this sounds like you. 

Luminous is also helpful for the following:

Skin that feels rough from dryness or sun damage - takes away roughness, softens and increases water content

Skin that looks dull and dehydrated - makes skin look brighter because of smooth surface, higher water content and softness

Skin that has mild congestion - Vit C has a surface clearing action that clears the surface of excess skin growth and scaly build up  this reduces congestion and allows pores to clear oil to the surface effectively  

Skin that has pigmentation - Vit C lightened pigmentation and inhibits the formation or new pigmentation by absorbing UV light and reducing the UV impact on skin cells

Skin that is inconsistent ie good one day not the next - Vit C on the surface has the same effect as taking it internally with regards to skin response. It promotes healthy skin growth by allowing skin to grow uninhibited by damage from ultraviolet light and high levels of free radicals. Vit C absorbs free radicals before they case damage to cells, therefore skin is not continuously in damage control mode but can just grow healthier everyday
