Active Ingredients

At Peak Efficacy

Active ingredients are quite fragile and oxidize and degrade rapidly, even more so when repeatedly exposed to light, air, and touch. This is visible in Vitamin C solution which changes color from clear to brown over time. But it happens with many active ingredients - like vitamins, antioxidants, retinol, acids, and even oils - so much so that studies have shown the average skin care loses half its ingredient efficacy in just a few months! Not only are degraded ingredients ineffective, but some may also lead to skin sensitivity and irritation.

So, freshness is key. And that's why we choose to produce in small batches and pack in daily doses, ensuring you get the fullest benefit of every ingredient every single time you apply our products!

a new standard of clean

Fresh, Pure, Gentle

Clean beauty definitions can be a bit murky. The fact is some ingredients are proven to lead to skin issues, and some others are suspected but still in debate. Our philosophy is that when it comes to healthy skin, we don't take risks.

We exclude any ingredient known or suspected to be concerning. Zero preservatives, allergens, fragrances, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, and more. We also carefully select and screen every ingredient for purity. Even our standard for the water in our products is set higher than the industry's so that it's uniquely clean and high quality.

Some people are more susceptible to concerning ingredients - like babies or those with sensitive skin. Susceptibility also varies as we age, experience hormonal changes, or undergo skin treatments like facials. That's why we ensure our clean and pure formulations are hypoallergenic, gentle, pH- and microbiome-friendly, safe, and dermatologist-approved for even the most susceptible skin!

Balance is Beautiful

Our bodies are innately intelligent, working to maintain the skin's ecosystem in a state of balance. When the microbiome is balanced, skin looks and feels healthy and can function at its best. Alternatively, when there are more harmful bacteria than helpful bacteria, skin becomes dry, itchy, and irritated.

The traditional beauty industry model necessitates the use of preservatives to protect products from the bacteria that gets introduced through exposure to air and touch. But those preservatives upset skin's microbiome every time each product is applied. Research even shows that commonly used preservatives do a better job killing the beneficial bacteria skin has and needs, while leaving behind the more stubborn bad bacteria. Have you ever noticed your skin get more irritated the more products you use? Or become more sensitive with age? That may be due to the compounded effect of preservatives disturbing your skin's microbiome.

LightWater is unique and revolutionary. We have rethought the entire industry's practices. Our combination of patent-pending formulations, super fresh batches, and fresh-lock daily doses eliminates the need for preservatives. Plus, our pure formulations exclude any ingredients that are even potentially concerning. All that's left are fresh, skin-beneficial actives that help stimulate natural skin functions, such as defense and repair. It's a new standard of clean skin care that works with your skin, not against it, for skin that's uncommonly balanced, beautiful, and strengthened by nutrition!
