How is Luminous Day & Night Cream different from the Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream?

They are similar, however there are a number of key ingredients that help deliver specific lightening properties, such as Axolight and Brightenyl that are not present in the Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Night Cream.  

Luminous Day & Night Cream is suggested for individuals wanting to even or brighten their skin tone, whilst providing deeply moisturising properties at the same time.

While we have developed our Luminous Day & Night Cream for women, it is suitable for men to use as well.

While the answer varies from person to person, it usually takes two or three months to see results. After that, you can alternate with the Ultra-Light Sheer Day and Restorative Night Cream or Nourishing Day Cream weekly to maintain the results.

What do I do if I only wish to brighten a small area of my face?

If you have small areas you wish to brighten such as sun spots, you can spot treat them, applying Luminous Day & Night Cream to the areas you want to brighten.

Does Kanapa™ skincare contain any mineral oils?

None of our products contain mineral oils. Mineral oils can clog the pores, interfere with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, and encourage breakouts. We use nourishing plant-based oils which nourish the skin without aggravating acne.
