With the grime-removing power of cleansing oil, a gentle biodegradable emulsifier, and the sumptuous feel of a balm, Lightwave is a true cleansing workhorse. Botanical Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) and Papaya fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate dead skin cells. Organic Turmeric extract provides skin-brightening antioxdants. Skin is left soft and radiant without any stripping or disruption to its natural microbiome.

Macadamia Nut Oil
Origin: South Africa
Macadamia oil stands out among other plant oils due to its high content of palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid which is naturally present in skin but decreases as we age. In fact, it has a chemical profile which is among the closest to human sebum, making it an excellent oil to remove clogged pores and soften skin.
Plum Kernel Oil
Plum Kernel oil is a cold-pressed oil rich in oleic and linoleic fatty acids, as well as vitamins A, C and E. It contains at least six times the antioxidant power of argan oil, and helps nourish, plump, and protect skin against free radicals and environmental pollutants.
Glycolic acid is naturally derived from sugar cane, and as the smallest molecule of all the alpha hydroxy acids it has the highest bio-availability. It increases cellular turnover at the lowest level of the stratum corneum, helping skin to remain fresh and youthful.
Turmeric root is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant thanks to its curcumin content, which helps to brighten skin, reduce pigmentation, slow the aging process, and inhibit acne.
