The best ingredients of anti-ageing facial oil

What Makes Lumity’s Facial Oil So Special?

The ideal complement to your Lumity supplement.

Lumity’s award-winning two-step supplement system supports your body’s optimum health from the inside out and Lumity’s Skin Nutrients facial oil takes care of you from the outside in with the most nutritious, skin-loving facial oil on the market.

Lumity: the perfect blend of science and nature

Cambridge University alumna Dr Sara Palmer Hussey, PhD, who blends the best of science and nature to formulate Lumity’s products, explains why this delicate oil is so unique: “This oil is different because of the perspective of its development.

“There are lots of great plant oils out there and lots of popular ingredients with them, e.g. argan oil, rosehip oil, etc, but I cleared the page and started with an in-depth study of skin and what it actually needs, from the outside in, to be really healthy and glowing, as well as what it certainly doesn't need (i.e. loads of extra chemicals) that actually provoke irritation, micro inflammation and accelerate ageing. The result is an oil that covers not just a few of the skin's nutrient requirements (every oil has a specific nutrient profile, but doesn't cover all the skin's needs), but contains a mix of oils that have each been identified as the best sources of specific nutrients that together provide the entire range of optimal nourishment the skin craves.

“A more balanced approach to essential oils is also necessary - careful selection and use is required with these potent ingredients. I use just enough to reap the aromatherapeutic and dermatological benefits, while steering clear of potential toxicity, photosensitivity and irritation. Many companies overdo this addition, which can lead to micro-inflammation and accelerate ageing rather than nourishing the skin. Less can be more. 

“Each ingredient included is a little natural powerhouse - no synthetic peptides or laboratory-produced nanoparticles - I want to harness the superior intelligence of plant life in packaging peptides and molecules as nature intended for better nourishment our skin will love. The oil has been formulated to be the perfect complement to our Lumity supplement, which gives nourishing support to the skin from the inside out, so that Lumity oil together with Lumity supplement is the best ally for naturally healthy, glowing skin.

“Lumity skin nutrients facial oil is the perfect complement to the Lumity supplement with visible results including plumped up, smooth skin, restored elasticity and firmness, less redness, more radiance and clarity. It’s 100% natural and made with 32 ingredients, each identified as the best source of specific nutrients that together provide the full range of optimal nourishment the skin craves.

“Ingredients include Green coffee seed oil, which is packed with powerful antioxidants like chlorogenic acid, Green tea leaf extract which inhibits the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin and Centella asiatica extract, also known as ‘the fountain of youth’ which increases blood supply and encourages the production of fibroblasts. Ingredients also include the vitamin and mineral-rich Passion flower seed oil, Marula oil which is rich in Vitamin C and E and Baobab seed oil which is a high powered vitamin-packed hydrator rich in omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids. The scent is made up of eight essential oils, such as Vetiver, Elemi and May chang which combined create a citrus-like, earthy yet spicy scent that is regenerating, grounding and balancing.”


100% Natural

Based upon the knowledge that whatever you put on your skin can be absorbed into your body, Lumity’s first concern in formulating a skincare product was to ensure that it contained only the purest, natural plant oils and extracts with no toxic or synthetic ingredients that would be harmful on the skin and inside the body.

Complete Skin Nourishment

Then, after much research into true skin requirements, we selected the most potent and nourishing natural phytonutrients from around the world to give the skin (in one product) its most nourishing treatment ever.

No single plant oil can cater to all the skin’s needs; each plant oil has a different nutritional profile and in order to cover all the nutritional needs of your skin, Lumity facial oil contains a blend of 32 ingredients, each identified as the best source of specific nutrients that together provide the full range of optimal nourishment the skin craves.

Visible Results

Within the first weeks of use, you will start to notice the difference that optimum skin nourishment can make. 32 natural ingredients, including nourishing plant oils, skin-loving extracts and therapeutic essential oils, combine to create an intensive holistic experience that feeds the skin and uplifts the soul.

Lumity has a natural affinity with the skin, absorbing easily to profoundly support, nourish and help:

  •     Replenish moisture for supple, smoother skin

    Suitable for all skin types

    Lumity addresses every skin concern and works with every skin type on a deeper level to improve the healthy functioning of skin tissue, so that all skin can bloom with health and radiance. Apply several drops of the facial oil morning and night before, with or instead of a moisturiser. Massage and gently pat into your face and neck.

    Effective Botanical Oils

    14 nutrient-rich plant oils merge to deliver antioxidant polyphenols, vitamins and minerals, lycopene, resveratrol and coenzyme Q10, as well as regenerative amino acids and omega 3-6-9 fatty acids, all critical nutrients for cell growth, protection, healing and repair in the skin.

    What is the anti-ageing ingredient?

    These include:

    Passion Flower Seed oil, a vitamin- and mineral-rich oil, shown to stimulate skin fibroblasts, the cells that synthesise collagen and elastin.

    What does it do at the cellular level?

    Baobab Seed oila high-powered, vitamin-packed hydrator, rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, natural penetration enhancers due to their fluidising effect on cell membranes.

    Marula oil, rich in vitamins C and E, speeds healing. Its high oleic acid and phytosterol content improve strength, suppleness and firmness.

    Active Plant Extracts

    This unique formulation includes 10 of the world's most effective plant extracts, including:

    Green Coffee Seed Oil, packed with powerful antioxidants (chlorogenic acid, for example, is a more potent antioxidant than vitamin C) and polyphenols that protect and repair the skin against UV damage.

    How is it anti-ageing?

    Green Tea Leaf Extract contains specific polyphenols known as catechins, in particular EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), that when applied to the skin, inhibit matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), the enzymes that breakdown collagen and elastin.

    Centella asiatica Extract, sometimes referred to as the "fountain of youth", increases blood supply, the level of antioxidants and encourages the production of fibroblasts, the cells that synthesise collagen in the skin.

    A Unique Therapeutic Fragrance

    Lumity does not contain perfume instead its fragrance comes exclusively from an infusion of 8 essential oils carefully selected to uplift, indulge, calm, instil confidence and imbue serenity, including:

    Vetiver, regenerating and toning, its earthy, spicy scent is grounding and balancing, helping to ease stress and calm the nerves.

    Elemi, healing and rejuvenating, its rich, exotic scent is uplifting, strengthening and energising, aiding mental clarity and lifting melancholy.

    May Chang, toning and refreshing, has a revitalising citrus scent, which makes it perfect for relieving fatigue and lethargy.
