Zits make a break for it when Blemish Control Solution enters the room. With a 7% mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids, skin is lightly exfoliated and bacteria is confronted head on.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads, breakouts, and large pores, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin areas). When sweat glands produce too much oil, pores become clogged with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells.
Accumulated sebum contains propionic acid bacteria, which is released into the tissue causing an inflammatory reaction. Blemish Control Solution reduces shine, absorbs moisture and perspiration, providing a long lasting smooth and non-greasy matte finish.
Glycolic Acid (5%) – An alpha hydroxy acid that loosens dead skin cells, softens and dissolves debris in the pores. Works with salicylic acid to reduce the appearance of scarring
Salicylic Acid (2%) – Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), provides exfoliation preventing pore clogging and smoothing fine lines/wrinkles, stimulates new cell growth
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)– the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3. It increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation; antioxidant that works for aging and acne related issues

Firm and Refine Night Gel is a natural and organic nighttime firming gel that combine active ingredients glycolic and lactic acids to encourage the break down of old damaged cells and accelerate the emergence of new cells, gradually reduce discoloration and to help restore skin thickness, texture and tone. This combination helps lift away dead cells and promote the growth of new ones – without being too harsh – as well as restore hydration and pH balance.
√ Helps improve skin texture and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation
√ Assists in the prevention of clogged pores without over-drying
√ Helps to tighten and strengthen tissue
Lactic acid – not only provides rich hydration and softens the skin, but also exfoliates without causing irritation; treats pigmentation discolorations and reduces wrinkles.
Glycolic acid – removes dead cells, smoothes skin texture and reduces the signs of wrinkles. Since it is a smaller molecule it is able to penetrate cellular walls and actively stimulate collagen production and cell turnover.
Blue Green Algae– Sourced from Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, blue green algae is the most nutrient intact algae available in the world. It is a complete balance of the entire B-Complex of vitamins (including B-12) as well as high levels of vitamin A and C. Blue green algae have a high protein content which strengthens skin and is made up of 22 amino acids. Studies now show that Blue Green algae has been linked to increased Adult Stem Cell growth, which are cells that the skin needs to repair itself.
Aloe Vera – contains almost 20 amino acids, minerals like calcium, magnesium and sodium in sufficient quantities; enzymes, vitamins, and polysaccharides, that make it a miracle beauty herb; improves the skin's ability to hydrate itself; extensive research supports aloe vera’s ability to reduce inflammation. It contains salicylic acid and sterols, both of which work to inhibit inflammation. Aloe also have antimicrobial properties that are beneficial in controlling P. acne.

Skin type: Hyperpigmented - Sun Damaged - Acne
Hyperpigmentation! Age Spots! Acne scars! Oh My!
Natural Skin Brightening Complex with the use of sun protection helps to gradually lighten these problem areas by slowing down the process of pigmentation. As the skin cells shed, the areas of discoloration begin to fade.
This extremely effective and highly concentrated all natural skin brightening treatment combines the clarifying, antiseptic and skin brightening properties of kojic and azelaic acids.
Azelaic Acid is a yeast that lives on normal skin, malassezia furfur (also known as Pityrosporum ovale). Azelaic acid has many uses in skin care, it is used as a topical treatment for mild to moderate acne and is useful for both comedonal and inflammatory acne. It is antibacterial - reduces the growth of bacteria in the follicle (p acne and staphylococcus epidermis). It is a scavenger of free radicals and helps to reduce pigmentation. It is particularly useful for darker skinned individuals that may have acne dark spots or melasma who may be sensitive to other skin lightening ingredients such as HQ. Azelaic acid is non-toxic and is well tolerated by most individuals. However, those with very sensitive skin or who suffer from eczema, may find it irritating to apply.
Kojic Acid - derived from Japanese mushrooms; kojic acid imparts antioxidant, antibacterial, and general antimicrobial effects, works on the principle of inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that reduces the synthesis of melanin by the skin's melanocytes. Melanin that gives freckles and "age spots" their pigmentation are produced in a multi-step process from the conversion of the amino acid, tyrosine, into dopa and melanin; so inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that is a key part of this process stops the formation of irregular pigmentation (which over time lessens the appearance of existing irregular pigment as the skin naturally renews itself over time).
Regular use combined with sun protection gradually lightens dark (brownish) spots such as freckles and age spots or pigment in the skin that may occur in pregnancy or from use of oral contraceptives.
For overall skin brightening, apply evenly to entire face at night.
To balance uneven pigmentation, use only on areas with noticeable discoloration.
If also using during the day, always follow with a generous application of SPF 20+ sunscreen.
For extra help with stubborn dark spots, use in conjunction with Vita A Complex.
Must be consistently used every day and night.
Expect to see results within 3-6 weeks.

Sulfur not only treats spot acne, rosacea and other skin inflammations both proactively and retroactively, but it also has long term skin benefits that can have your skin looking clear and perfect all of the time.
Dead skin cells are responsible for blocking pores and creating the conditions necessary for acne causing bacteria to multiply, sometimes leading to eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. Sulfur also helps to clarify the skin, banish excess oil, minimize pores, and help prevent and heal blemishes.
Aloe Vera – contains almost 20 amino acids, minerals like calcium, magnesium and sodium in sufficient quantities that make it a miracle beauty herb; improves the skin's ability to hydrate itself;
Colloidal Sulfur – one of the oldest known acne treatments; reduces acne blemishes and absorbs oil. Inhibits pores from becoming blocked in the future as well as minimizing oiliness overall.
Blue Green Algae – a wild harvested organic certified most nutrient rich and bio-active of all algaes which occurs in the remote area in the Oregon Cascade Mountains, in the Klamath Falls; is highly bio-available, and is the purest, most nutrient intact algae available in the world; crucial for collagen production and has an immediate smoothing effect by connecting to skin cells.
Rooibos Tea Extract – scientists found that Rooibos tea contains a mimic of the enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.), an antioxidant which attacks the free radicals and limits their damaging effects. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is 1 of 4 antioxidant enzymes that exist in the body to protect it from free radical damage. Its protection against UV induced damage reduces collagen breakdown, inflammation and other factors that lead to skin aging such as wrinkles, skin laxity and hyper-pigmentation.
Oatstraw and Nettle Leaf Extracts – Packed with magnesium and silica, help build collagen in the skin, resulting in a younger, smoother complexion. Its astringent properties give it an acne-fighting boost.

Number of Applications: You can expect 180-200 applications from the pure C the Power from the 60 gram container. The number of applications from the Activator will vary on usage, as it can be used as a toner as well.
We are very excited to be introducing this innovative and stable form of vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) for the skin.
Have you ever wondered why your expensive vitamin C serum turns brown so quickly? Well, the answer is simple. L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an inherently unstable molecule and once liquid is added, it quickly oxidizes and loses its potency up to 50% within 2-3 months. In addition, any high concentration of 20% or more is really going to oxidize rapidly.
Vitamin C must be in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid to have an effect in the skin.
There are many vitamin c skin care products touting the benefits of other, more stable and less irritating forms of vitamin C. However, the skin cells can only use vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid.
We have seen it with our own eyes as we have time and time again tried to formulate water-based creams with a high vitamin C content. It just doesn't remain stable for very long, like 4 weeks tops!
So we decided to create a powder-based high percentage Vitamin C product so that stability would not be an issue. This two-step solution solves the problem. Active fresh vitamin C to the skin every time.
BONUS feature: You can add this to any serum you are already using to give it a Vitamin C boost.
WHAT IS IT?
The Power of C is a 2-step solution to applying a high concentration of vitamin C to the skin.
C the Power Activator is a vital part in making up the C the Power treatment more effective. However, you can also add it to any Lotus Moon serums or moisturizers such as Hyaluronic Intensive, Hibiscus Flower Hydrating Lotion or even Skin Boost.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
L-Ascorbic Acid is a beneficial component in defending skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.
L-ascorbic acid in its powder form does not oxidize and therefore remains stable as opposed to when it is solubilized in water-based formulations. When Lotus Moon C the Power is mixed with our C the Power Activator along with one of our serums, the powder dissolves and then delivers 100% active, unoxidized vitamin C to the skin.
Witch Hazel assists in increasing circulation in the skin while moisturizing and softening
Hibiscus Flower Extract provides potent antioxidant properties. It also gives it a pink hue as well as a slight exfoliating effect and a stunning boost to the skin.
After cleansing and toning, shake a small amount of C the Power into the palm of your hand
Add a few drops of activator. Rub hands together and gently massage entire face, neck and décolleté.
Follow with your favorite Lotus Moon moisturizer.
Use twice daily
