What's In/What's Out

Skin care should be good for you!

We have all learned to be more careful with what we put in our bodies.  Cutting out preservatives, artificial colors and toxic additives in our foods has become commonplace but we still have to improve our habits when it comes to our skin care.  After all, our skin is our largest organ and helps to protect us from environmental damage. Shouldn’t we, therefore, protect our skin in the best way possible?

But we don’t have to sacrifice effectiveness for purity in ingredients because nature has provided us with the best ingredients to use in our daily skin care regimen!  

What’s In:

Here are just a few of the amazing ingredients we use in our products:

Guava Fruit Extract.
A simple fruit that is a powerhouse of nutrients!  Rich in vitamins A, B and C, potassium and powerful antioxidants that not only nourish your skin but protect your skin from environmental toxins. It also works as an antibacterial, natural skin toner and evens out skin complexion.

Kakadu Plum Extract.
This amazing fruit, a native of Northern Australia, has a Vitamin C content that is 50% higher than that of oranges! It’s rich antioxidant profile, helps detoxify skin and protect it from free radical damage.  The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of this superfruit make it ideal for acne prone skin.

Turmeric Root Extract.
A powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory root that has been used in India for over 4000 years for its medicinal properties!  It reduces under eye darkness, acne and hyperpigmentation of skin.

Also known as Vitamin B3, niacinamide visibly reduces appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles.  This vitamin also reduces skin damage from environmental effects, making the skin more radiant and youthful.


What’s Out:

You deserve better skin care!

Here at Luvanya, we are committed to a health and safety standard beyond that required by US law.  Serious health issues are on the rise, not only in the US, but around the world, due in part to increased toxic exposures, environmental and otherwise.  As of 2018, the US has banned only 30 chemicals from being used in skin care products while over 1300 chemicals are banned in the EU. But don’t stress, here at Luvanya, we have your back!  We like to follow preventative practices and not only do we avoid use of the 1300+ banned ingredients but we also avoid use of skin irritants such as essential oils.

Skin care products should allow you to care for your body without contaminating it!

Here are just a few of the harmful substances we avoid in our products:

Parabens (butyl-, methyl-, propyl-, etc)
