The idea of creating a summer beauty product was sparked by my timely move to Hangzhou, China for doctoral school four years ago.
Angela and I had just completed a rigorous round of R&D with our first product in San Francisco, a beta-version of our ENLIGHTEN Beauty Oil, which received glowing approvals from our test group. I happily brought a fresh bottle to Hangzhou, expecting it to continue to work it's magic. However after a week, the results were underwhelming; not because of the product, but because of my skin's unglamorous reaction to the sweltering climate.
Summer in southern China can get uncomfortably hot and muggy; Hangzhou’s lush and humid subtropical climate was a huge contrast from the cool, dry, Mediterranean-like weather of San Francisco. An oilier and congested complexion, although vexing, is a completely normal reaction to the hot and moist environment.
This prompted us to reevaluate our product lineup. Instead of reformulating ENLIGHTEN, we got inspired to develop products for every season, five to be exact. Soon after, we created our solution for troubled summer skin, the LUCENT.
The LUCENT beauty line is our vision of a refreshing summer beauty ritual. Inspired by the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine, Lucent is created from an alchemy of pure, precious, and potent medicinal plants. Like a warm, brilliant light, Lucent reconnects and attunes us to the passage of seasons and flow of nature.
Lucent invites the magic of summer to provide clarity and radiance to your skin, balance and joy to your soul, and allows your being to blossom and flourish fully all season long.
