Love this product!

The turmeric illuminating solution smells great, feels nice and light, and has been an amazingly gentle exfoliator for my skin. My skin is so sensitive and does not like harsh chemicals to try and get rid of my acne, but this leaves my skin smooth and soft, helping my acne journey without drying out my face! It is also great on body blemishes!

Strong and Gentle at the same time.

I see progress on my skin with this product. Happy to see that! Especially with clearing up acne and also scarring. It' also isn't drying like many similar products are. This is a holy grail for sensitive skin. Of course, do not over use, but 3-4 times a week is a miracle.

Insanely gentle exfoliation

This solution gently exfoliates and makes your skin feel so renewed. I use it on face and chest and it is so gently but so effective.

Frequently asked questions

our products are always formulated to be effective and gentle. however, we always recommend showing our ingredients list to your doctor or health care provider to confirm safety for you specifically!

this product is a gentle exfoliant, the turmeric illuminating solution is formulated to be gentle due to its carefully selected acid blend, and support from its hydrating and soothing ingredients, but we always recommend a patch test to confirm compatibility because everyone has unique skin and concerns.

no, the turmeric extracted with CO2 that results in a slightly clear to yellow color so you can use it without staining skin or your pillows!
