For acneic and blemished skin types, the skin needs a cleanser that will wash away the impurities known for clogging the skin, a serum that will treat the blemishes and break-out prone areas as well as a moisturizer that will keep the skin hydrated without making it overly oily.
Finding the perfect set of products to accomplish this can be challenging. Lotus Moon gives you options to pick and choose the products for your specific needs.
Serums have a smaller molecular structure than moisturizers. This allows them to target specific needs at the cellular level.
Serums are concentrated blends that give your skin regimen an added boost to help correct conditions like dryness, inflammation, and discoloration.
In addition, they can help diminish fine lines, calm redness and brighten dull skin. We use time-tested ingredients that encourage collagen stimulation and cellular turnover. When applied before your moisturizer, serums take your routine to the next level.
Age gracefully! And do so naturally and organically.
As skin ages, its needs change. Examples of these changes that your skin may experience include drying, sensitivity and irritation, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, or overall dull skin tone.
Here are a variety of products that cater to the unique normal to dry skin needs.
Oils like grapeseed and pumpkin seed move through the top layer of skin at lightening quick speed, quickly settling comfortably into the areas that need hydrating the most.
Our beauty oils are very elegant, light formulations that are excellent for layering and everyday use. Just keep in mind that a small amount of the right product goes a long way.
This gives an immediate plumping effect and creates the perfect canvas for your makeup — and the smoother your skin, the better your whole face will look. Many of the oils used in our formulations have anti-inflammatory properties as well, helping to quell irritated skin.
Argan and baobab oils are ideal for irritations that follow use of serums containing active ingredients such as retinol or alpha hydroxy acids. Geranium oil is also fabulous at reducing redness from rosacea, as well.
Elbows…Knees…shoulders…areas of the body that need care just as much as the face but are often forgotten.
Lotus Moon offers body care products that moisturize and exfoliate made with the ingredients that penetrate the skin, hydrating and adding nutrients needed to keep the skin young and elastic.
Indulge the skin—especially those elbows, knees and shoulders with these body care products.
When you want to take your skin the extra mile.
Boosters allow you to tailor and customize your serums, moisturizers and masks to your individual skin needs.
Every pro-aging skincare routine should include the few essential steps of cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizer. Beyond that, adding a boost to your skin care products, you 'supercharge' them with their concentrated ingredients.
Beautiful skin begins with proper cleansing! Cleansing with non-drying, sulfate-free ingredients that will remove dirt and debris allowing the skin to breathe and absorb the ingredients of other products more effectively.
Lotus Moon cleansers offer a solution for every skin type and expression. Each blend contains antioxidant and botanical ingredients such as lavender, lemongrass, olive oil, green tea & rooibos extracts to provide a thorough and gentle cleanse without stripping the skin of its protective oils.
Hyper-pigmentation is darkening of an area of skin caused by increased melanin.
This can be caused by sun damage, skin injuries or scarring and/or inflammation.
Lotus Moon has a selection of products to help with skin discoloration such as age spots, sun damage and scars from acne and other skin trauma.
Exfoliation is key to maintaining healthy, functioning skin. The skin naturally reproduces cells and brings healthy, new skin to the surface while regularly shedding the dead, outermost layer.
The benefits of exfoliation include improved texture and tone, lightened pigmentation, unclogged pores, a clearer complexion, a reduction in acne breakouts and in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition, exfoliating the skin allows optimal penetration of any active ingredient. The effects of exfoliation are immediately visible.
It is also important that you follow up with a serum that contains high concentration of antioxidants, such as our Skin Boost Peptide Elixir, Hyaluronic Intensive or High Potency Recovery Gel, since we are in effect "injuring" the skin in order for it to shed.
Hair that hangs limply around your shoulders can be discouraging. Though the big hair of the 80’s is out—sadly—a little extra body would be wonderful.
Lotus Moon has hair care products that help aid in the addition of body, the appearance of volume and help put a little extra bounce in your hair and your step!
Treat, hydrate, and protect your skin with moisturizers that are formulated with clean and safe ingredients to give you results without the toxins.
Lotus Moon moisturizers are formulated to penetrate deep into the skin with highly concentrated ingredients, which means less is more. These powerful ingredients work deep in the dermal layers to lock in hydration for healthy results.

Trying to find the right hair products is like running a gauntlet of false claims, suspect ingredients, bad decisions and trial and error. Natural transition is about giving your hair the resources it needs to achieve its full and luscious potential.
Below are the products that we suggest to encourage healthy hair growth and nourishment. These products DO NOT contain sodium lauryl sulfates, corn oil, soy oil, silicone-derived ingredients, parabens or other harmful chemicals or pore clogging ingredients.
Oil is good. Oily is bad. When hair is too oily it leaves the hair looking limp, lifeless and very unappealing. The scalp naturally secretes oil. This good oil keeps your scalp moisturized and healthy.
But sometimes, like if you over dry your scalp, it seems as if those oil secreting glands in your scalp go into overdrive and turns you into a natural greaser.
Lotus Moon hair care products help your scalp return to its natural balance of regular oil secretion.
Smooth, clear and even-toned skin is easily achieved with regular use of a well-formulated exfoliant. Lotus Moon offers an exfoliating solution for every type of skin to reveal a healthy-looking radiance.
Some would consider exfoliation as one of the most important treatments for your skin. This is the process of removing dead and dull skin cells from the skin. Proper exfoliation leaves behind a smoother and more radiant complexion.
There are two types of exfoliation: Manual (physical) and chemical.
Manual exfoliation uses granular ingredients such as jojoba beads or blue cornmeal to aid in the process. As you massage these elements over the skin, the friction gently removes those dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation is great for sensitive skin types and those just starting out with an exfoliating program.
Chemical exfoliation uses alpha hydroxy acids (aha’s) and beta hydroxy acids (bha) such as glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid to help with the removal of the dead skin cell buildup.
Lotus Moon peels come in varying strengths for those just beginning to use chemical exfoliants and those who have used them before. With a variety of different exfoliators to choose from, you can spice up your routine by adding one of them to your regimen.
We’ve all made bad hair decisions, the 80’s bangs, the 90’s French roll…that bob in 2002 that made your cheeks look fat…and then there is some long lasting mistakes—at home color, the blow dryer on high every morning, the flat iron that leaves your hair smoking.
Damage happens. But it’s what you do about the damage that matters.
When it comes to our hair the most important thing that our hair needs is products that clean and condition without damaging our scalp or bodies in the process. That is it. That is all.
A very important factor to understand when it comes to cleansing our hair and scalp is to make sure that the products we are using are pH balanced.
A balanced pH allows the hair at the cuticle to lie flat and protect the cortex. This makes for shiny and smooth hair. Another consideration is to make sure that your shampoo doesn't contain silicone-based additives (ingredients ending with -cone, -conol, or -xane) because they conceal damage rather than repair it, weigh hair down, attract dirt and require stronger detergents to remove.
These silicone additives such as dimethicone, cyclotetrasiloxane, methylchloroisothiazolinone and others are added to shampoos to give the hair a silky feeling by coating it. However, this prevents the hair and scalp from becoming truly clean and can also lead to clogged hair follicles which create can lead to breakage, dandruff and breakouts along the forehead and hairline.
We have formulated our shampoos to be at a pH of 4.5-5.5. When the pH is too high (8, 9+) it causes the cuticle to open which can cause clogging (leading to dandruff, itchy scalp) and also leaves hair color susceptible to fading. This is the case when using castile soap which has a pH of 9.0+, even if its organic because what matters here is the pH of the product.
Castille soap can also be listed as: Saponified oils of coconut, olive and jojoba, aloe vera and rosemary oil extract. Such a high pH causes the cuticles to swell and the hair can become rough, leaving the hair dull and dry.
You will find that our hair care range addresses a wide variety of hair types and conditions. From the overly processed, damaged and dry to the thick, curly, long and short, braided, loc'd, weaved or natural.
Lotus Moon hair care uses ingredients found in nature such as shea, cocoa and mango butters; jojoba, amla and brahmi oils; geranium, lavender and orange essential oils, we've developed solutions to bring your tresses back to LIFE!!
The ideal sunscreen should have broad spectrum protection against both ultraviolet A and B radiation (UVA & UVB) and be made of the only two FDA approved ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are not absorbed into the body.
Unlike chemical sunscreens (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate) that work by allowing ultraviolet light to penetrate, our sunscreens are 100% mineral-based and are formulated to reflect the sun’s rays. It protects against UVB rays, the rays that burn your skin; and UVA rays, the rays that penetrate more deeply and damage your DNA.
We are often asked if our sunscreen is nano-free.
The answer is a resounding YES!!! Our titanium and zinc are micronized particle size NOT nanoparticle size.
The size of the micronized titanium oxide and zinc oxide used in our formulations is 1 micron or greater (the size of a human hair is roughly 50 microns).
Micronized particle size = 1 micron = 1000 nanometers
Nanoparticle = less than 0.1 microns = 100 nanometers
Nanoparticle minerals will spread on the skin more easily because the particle size is so small and therefore, will not leave as much of a white film. Nanoparticle size is not safe, PERIOD! The smallest size that should ever be used is micronized.
Our stance on sun protection is while prolonged sun exposure is damaging to the skin, we consider early morning sun and late afternoon sunshine to be protective.
Remember to apply the sunscreen correctly by rubbing it in your hands first then laying it on the skin, waiting 20-30 seconds, then stroking it on lightly. Sunscreens should never be rubbed in.
Mineral sunscreens take a bit of getting used to because they can leave a white film on the skin. Basically, the white film is what protects your skin and it is where you want it – on TOP of the skin!!!
It takes a few applications to learn how to use minerals so that you are happy with the appearance. Is the extra effort worth it? Is recycling worth it? Many things that are best for us take a bit more time and yes, the effort is worth it.
Plus, Sol Intense spf 30 is fortified with Green Tea and Vitamin E, two powerful antioxidants to help protect against ongoing sun damage. Sol Creme spf 17 (for the face) contains polyphenolic compounds derived from Turmeric Root which quench free radicals and prevent inflammation and Tocotrienols (naturally derived from Palm), which are similar to tocopherols, but more effective at penetrating the skin to provide stronger topical protection against UV and environmental free radicals.
Prep the skin for treatment and moisture buy removing cleanser residue. Lotus Moon tonics allow the ingredients to hydrate and penetrate deeper in the dermal layers. Formulated with potent ingredients to treat your specific skin concerns.
These natural, organic and effective tonics are the final step in the cleansing process as they remove any remaining debris from the surface of the skin to reveal the cleanest skin possible.
