Skincare that works
Always At Peak Efficacy
We created truly fresh skincare, ensuring that our formulas feature ingredients that are not only sourced fresh, but are also formulated, small-batched, sent, and applied fresh as well. Unlike bottled skincare made for repeated use, LightWater is always fresh, at every application!
Why do we do it? Because it delivers maximum efficacy and results. Did you know that many skincare actives degrade rapidly, as soon as they're exposed to light, air or touch, rendering them ineffective?
LightWater is fresh from source to skin to maintain peak potency, so that you get the full benefit of each high-quality ingredient. Every day, every dose.
Feed your skin fresh to improve skin health and appearance from the outside to way deep within.

I'm surprised with the results in just a month! My skin has felt very well hydrated and the bounce and overall radiance it's given my skin is just amazing. I've also noticed a nice reduction in the redness I had and it helped my overall skin look more even.
I love this moisturizer for day time. It is the perfect lightweight moisturizer! Not too heavy but also not too light! I love the little packets that they come in so I don't end up over using the product and so they will stay fresher.
I've had dry patches in the same places for over three years, so I grow my facial hair to cover them. After using this regimen, the dry red patches are now totally gone!
Clinically proven, freshly sourced, and screened for purity, our ingredients are super clean and high quality for maximum efficacy.

When ingredients are fresh, they function better. Think of it as how much more nutritional value a fresh salad has vs. a stale, wilted one.
Skincare actives are quite fragile and oxidize and degrade rapidly, especially when repeatedly exposed to light, air, and touch. So, as soon as you open a pack of skincare, it starts to degrade in quality and efficacy. In fact, it's been degrading since first made and packaged if it's in a see-through jar. Plus, some oxidized ingredients may lead to skin sensitivities and irritation.
So, freshness is key. That's why we produce in small batches and package in daily doses, ensuring you get a freshly made, optimally performing product every day!
Regular skincare is preserved to last for at least 2 years because of the long supply chain (manufacturer to distributor to warehouse to store shelf) and consumer use period (2-3 months).
Yet, skincare actives begin oxidizing and degrading as soon as they’re mixed, with some losing half their efficacy in just 8 weeks!
LightWater has redesigned the entire process to deliver truly fresh actives at their peak potency and efficacy:
• Produced in small, frequent batches
• Packaged in daily doses to prevent exposure to light, air, or touch to keep the formulas fresh
• Delivered to you with a recommended use-by date
So, your skin gets the full benefits of each potent ingredient. Every single time you apply our skincare.
Preservatives function to maintain a long shelf-life and consumer use period, of generally >2 years. They kill bad bacteria that comes into contact with the product through light, air, or repeated touch.
While they're there for the product, they are harmful to skin. They kill any good microorganisms your skin has and needs, throwing your skin into imbalance and stress as it tries to recover. And it happens every time you apply any preserved product - which includes all current moisturizers and cosmetics on the market. They're also well known skin irritants and sensitizers, and lead to many skin conditions with repeated use.
Our patent-pending formulas and unique daily dose packages enable us to not use any preservatives. The formulas are specially made with ultra pure, sterile water. They stay fresh, clean, and hygienic until the packs are opened.
It’s an innovative approach and we did it because preservatives have been shown to cause skin irritation and allergies, and disrupt the microbiome. Our aim is healthier, happier skin!

LightWater is thoughtfully designed to be more sustainable:
• Packaging: All is either fully recyclable or compostable. Plus, the daily dose flexible packs are much more efficient than rigid jars, bottles, or tubes. In fact, they use between 35%-75% less material to hold the same amount of cream! No springs, caps, or extra labels needed. Fewer materials also mean less greenhouse gas emissions, water waste, and smaller carbon footprint.
• Formulas: our clean and pure formulas are earth-friendly, so none of our ingredients can damage marine or plant life if they seep into the environment
• Tackling beauty waste: as much as 40% of beauty products end up in the trash! We reduce waste by producing in small batches to reduce the risk of unsold, expired, or degraded-quality products.
Not when you factor in how effective LightWater is and how many products it replaces with its multifunctional benefits! Because LightWater is made and sent fresh, its actives actually do what they are meant to, so you see results faster.
Plus, our super clean and pure formulas nourish skin without any allergens or concerning ingredients whatsoever, so they're better for your skin's health.
