Designed to hydrate and provide barrier repair, LILOU Radiant Hydra-Balm goes from solid to silky liquid as you massage into your skin - absorbing flawlessly for a healthy, dewy glow. Blooming with 20 botanical based ingredients, 86 unique antioxidants, and nourishing oils that are high in linoleic acid, LILOU restores skin at the cellular level to reduce inflammation while regulating sebum levels.
In order to maximize LILOU Radiant Hydra-Balm’s moisturizing, soothing, and healing properties, we advise that you apply it to damp skin. This is because balms, unlike creams, do not contain any water. Thus, they are activated by and absorb best into damp skin. Prior to application - spritz your skin with a toner, essence, mist, or rosewater. Then, massage half a pea’s worth of LILOU into your still-damp skin.
Science has shown that when our skin has less linoleic acid and more oleic acid, its natural sebum becomes thick and sticky. This clogs pores, and exacerbates acne and other dermal conditions. Fortunately, LILOU Radiant Hydra-Balm is formulated with nourishing oils rich in linoleic acid and alpha-linoleic acid — two essential omega fatty acids our skin craves but can’t create on its own.
Pure plant oils contain essential fatty acids that are important to keep the skin well hydrated. If the skin is stripped of its natural oils through either genetics, lifestyle, and/or aggressive product use, the skin will produce more to compensate for its loss. A wax-less balm like LILOU will replenish the skin with EFAs (essential fatty acids) and lock moisture in. Once balance is restored, the sebaceous glands will stop producing the extra sebum that is a contributor to overly oily skin or breakouts. The ultimate result is a clearer, healthier complexion.
ANTI-AGING Our anti-aging benefits start with seeds. Small but powerful, they are bursting with botanical-based antioxidants that prevent free radical damage and promote collagen production at the cellular level. LILOU Radiant Hydra-Balm is also steeped in polyphenols from white tea, green tea, and matcha tea that help protect skin from visible signs of aging as well as oxidative stress and immune cell damage.
HYDRATING Our formula is abundant in hydrating botanical ingredients like hemp seed oil, a natural humectant that has more essential fatty acids (including alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid) than any other plant. It’s also packed with phytosterols that increase moisture, reduce water loss and greatly improve dry and dehydrated skin conditions.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Our plant-based anti-inflammatory ingredients are among the richest sources of polyphenols, phytonutrients, phytosterols, and omega fatty acids — all to soothe skin and minimize redness, all green. We also use flower powerhouse helichrysum italicum, which helps to diminish and repair scars, increase tissue regeneration, and reduce future breakouts thanks to its antibacterial properties.
BARRIER REPAIRING Healthy skin is not only smooth, but strong. LILOU Radiant Hydra-Balm gets skin glowing by reinforcing, repairing, and regenerating its lipid barrier with nourishing essential fatty acids and phytosterols. Our formula also includes pomegranate seed oil — one of the only plant sources of barrier-fortifying, moisture-holding conjugated linoleic acid.
