LILIKOI MINERAL DEFENSE COLLECTION
We are thrilled with this exciting new launch just in time for the warmer weather! Eminence’s beautiful new sunscreen line, Lilikoi Mineral Defense, combines the power of tropical fruit lilikoi, pronounced lil – i – koi, with non-nano mineral sunscreen. There are three different products in this line offering a variety of solutions for your lifestyle that I’ll discuss more below. Experiencing the Lilikoi line in our facials As we know, sunscreen can be very personal in terms of how it feels and looks on your skin and we are happy to add the Lilikoi line to our arsenal for you to experience. As always, we want to protect your skin from the sun especially after your freshly exfoliated skin and as the last step in our facials, we will be applying the Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer SPF 23 and Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer SPF 33 on our clients.
More about the line First, let’s talk about this amazing fruit and all its benefits! Lilikoi fruit, most widely known as passion fruit, not only tastes delicious it also happens to be rich in essential nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, riboflavin, niacin, and essential fatty acids. Antioxidants like Vitamin A and C help repair and protect against DNA damage and are key for reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles as well as brightening the complexion. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) and Niacin (Vitamin B3) decrease inflammation, repair hyperpigmentation, increase cellular health and reduces redness and blotchiness. In addition, the essential fatty acids in this line, linoleic acid, and oleic acid are healthy fats that help hydrate, rebuild and shield the skin’s barrier.
The Mineral Defense Collection features all mineral non-nano sunscreens, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which work by remaining on top of the skin and act as a mirror by reflecting the sun’s rays. Being naturally broad-spectrum, these sunscreens protect against UVA (the rays that cause aging) and UVB (the rays that burn your skin).
Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer SPF 33 is a light-weight moisturizer loaded with antioxidants and pollution fighting actives creates a physical barrier against environmental damage.
Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer SPF 23 focuses on protection against blue light, the light that emits from personal electronic devices and can contribute to premature aging. Blue light has been shown to contribute to a breakdown in collagen and elastin, cause inflammation and hyper-pigmentation.
Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 – Perfect for those active days when you’re sweating more or just enjoying some time by the pool or beach, this sunscreen is non-greasy and water resistant for up to 40 minutes.
