LUMINOUS is a specially blended skin nourishing, hydrating & toning Day Gel containing the powerful marine micro algae Nannochloropsis Oceanica. LUMINOUS DAY GEL comes in a 50ml environmentally friendly glass jar. We call it the "perfect day gel" because of the many amazing compounds found in our algae Nannochloropsis Oceanica.


Nannochloropsis Oceanica is great for your skin and naturally rich in:


OMEGA-3 has excellent topical benefits for the skin. Omega-3 fatty acids help the skin retain moisture, regulate oil production, and maintain elasticity. Topical application of omega-3 fatty acids lessens UV-induced photo-damage, external signs of aging, and anti-inflammatory skin responses.

PROTEIN - Studies have found that by topically applying protein (peptides) to the skin, the body thinks it's receiving a message to produce new collagen. This collagen production helps to reduce wrinkles and to provide more elasticity to the skin, which is what gives skin its youthful appearance.

AMINO ACIDS help strengthen the skin’s natural defence system, making it less likely to show signs of aging from environmental damage. Hydrated skin is healthy skin and research has shown that amino acids when applied topically have great hydrating ability. Amino Acids also stimulate collagen production, which, in turn improves the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging.

CHLOROPHYLL works as an antibacterial as well as an anti-inflammatory. It's even been scientifically proven to increase the rate of healing wounds, (great for the treatment of acne), chlorophyll can also help speed up cell turnover and clear skin faster.

ASTAXANTHIN has the ability to increase skin moisture, moisture retention, elasticity, as well as promote skin smoothness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. It also has incredible UV-blocking properties, which helps to assist the skin in protecting itself against sun-related damage, diminishing age spots, freckles, and dark eye circles gradually.  Astaxanthin can neutralize multiple free radicals at once, protecting your skin from oxidation, damage, and inflammation and has been proven to increase blood flow, meaning that it will help your skin to have better circulation. The anti-inflammatory activity of astaxanthin can help reduce puffiness and redness.

Once harvested we take our whole Nannochloropsis Oceanica Algae and blend it with:

ALOE VERA provides a protective layer to the skin, which helps to retain moisture. Aloe is also rich in antioxidants and minerals, which can help speed healing. It softens the skin without clogging pores. Aloe Vera is also rich in vitamins C, E and beta-carotene (a pre-cursor to vitamin A), which helps smooth out wrinkles and signs of aging, maintain a youthful looking skin. Its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties are great for keeping your skin clean, fresh and supple.

PULLULAN has the ability to provide an instant skin-tightening effect as it adheres to the skin. It is able to quickly form a sheer film that temporarily improves skin's texture and appearance and making it silky smooth to touch.

PAPAIN is very effective in skin renewal and skin lightening. It also functions as an exfoliator, skin softener and moisturizer and helps fight acne. What’s more, the enzyme helps the body combat free radicals, thus preventing premature ageing.

PROPOLIS has excellent Antibacterial, anti-fungal properties. Propolis also has powerful healing compounds and works quickly to regenerate damaged skin and to help make the skin texture smoother looking and supple.

MORINGA is high in vitamin C and helps boosts collagen production in the skin, which helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The vitamin-rich and nutrient-dense Moringa is high in antioxidants, and has excellent antibacterial and skin nourishing properties.

VITAMIN E has excellent moisturising properties and is great for treating dry or flaking skin. Because of this it can also help with skin repair and healing giving the skin a natural healthy glow.


Combining all of these ingredients into one product makes LUMINOUS the perfect day gel.


It is fast absorbing, and the non-oily formula will leave your skin feeling nourished, hydrated, firm and silky smooth.
