Despite the piercing cold and drying winds of the northern longitudes, Nordic women tend to look exceptionally fresh-faced and youthful, with an unmistakable healthy radiance that glows throughout the long winter darkness. This resilient beauty forged by a primal relationship with an extreme yet generous arctic nature is our inspiration at LUMENE.
Rooted in the wellbeing rituals of Northern Finland, our formulas harness the power of one of the last un-spoilt sanctuaries on earth combining pure oxygen-rich, pH skin friendly Arctic spring water, with a variety of hand-picked Arctic ingredients unlike any other. Berries, seeds, plants, tree saps and even mushrooms have evolved in the wild over thousands of years to survive and thrive under a uniquely disruptive and challenging annual light cycle. 8 months of purifying, unbroken winter darkness -save for the magical Northern lights, followed by 4 consecutive months of intense life-giving light 24-hours a day.
This light phenomenon, further amplified by an unusually stable low ground temperature, stimulates Arctic plants to produce unparalleled high levels of potent nutrients and Antioxidants.
By capturing the power of these light-charged actives, Lumene channels this reviving light in its formulas. We call it “Arctic Lumenessence”. This is the secret of Nordic beauty: the beauty of pure, naturally luminous skin.
