A Closer Look at Formule Intensif No. 1 Light Reveal

Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Formule Intensif No. 1 Light Reveal Brightening Concentrate

Our vibrant, liquid copper-tone Light Reveal was made for the woman who seeks to look, feel, and do good. This glowy elixir is formulated to reduce hyper-pigmentation, brighten lackluster skin, and, of course - empower women (because we invest 10% of proceeds in personal and business loans for women every month.)


Light Reveal contains five luxurious, biodynamic ingredients:
    • Andiroba Oil infused with sun-dried Guarana berries
    • Pequi Oil
    • Buriti Oil
    • and carbon dioxide-extracted Sea Buckthorn Oil
These ingredients hail from some of the most fertile, bio-diverse corners of the globe - the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, the Brazilian Cerrado (Brazil's second largest biome after the Amazon rainforest), and the rich, flourishing farmlands of Ukraine.
Using pure, unrefined oils direct from the source means that each 10 ML bottle of Light Reveal is packed with concentrated phytonutrients that work overtime to reverse free radical damage (the #1 cause of hyper-pigmentation) and give your skin a luminous glow.


Caffeine is a naturally-occurring stimulant, best known for it's starring role in coffee (of course!) But, caffeine is more than just an excellent way to start your day. Applied topically, it has the proven ability to increase the microcirculation of blood in your skin and it's potent antioxidant properties help protect your skin cells against UV radiation and slow down the process of photo-aging. It's ability to constrict small blood vessels and reduce inflammation makes it a key player in formulas designed to minimize dark circles and sagging skin under the eyes (this is one of the reasons we recommend using Light Reveal as a nightly eye treatment!)
Fun Fact - Researchers have even been looking at ways caffeine can be used to treat non-melanoma skin cancers. Researchers have observed caffeine's ability to prevent and reverse the damaging of effects of UV radiation by causing damaged cells to self-destruct! 
Carotenoids alpha- and beta-carotene are pre-cursors to Vitamin A and act as antioxidants that prevent oxidative damage to your cells. Your top most layer of skin, also known as the stratum corneum, is able to efficiently absorb carotenoids. Once absorbed, your body converts them into Vitamin A, a necessity for healthy skin. In fact, researchers have found that carotenoids give the skin a signature 'carotenoid glow.' After six weeks, participants in a study perceived other's skin to be visibly healthier and more attractive (as opposed to the 'pale' and 'less healthy' skin of those without a carotenoid glow.) 

A vital molecule for skin health, Vitamin C plays a critical role in collagen synthesis. Because our oils are unrefined and cold-pressed, they retain a portion of the potent Vitamin C found in the original whole plants. This naturally-occurring Vitamin C (as opposed to synthetic forms of the vitamin) moves from the surface of your skin into your bloodstream with ease, as transport proteins (just for Vitamin C!) are found in all layers of the skin. This makes it one of the most bioavailable molecules on the planet, and incredibly effective when applied topically. 


Superoxide Dismutase is a super powerful antioxidant that combats the effects of free radical damage. In fact, it's been considered the most powerful antioxidant to naturally occur in our bodies. The more Superoxide Dismutase, the better. It keeps your skin healthier longer, by preventing and delaying the oxidation that occurs as cells age or are damaged by free radicals. Superoxide Dismutase naturally present in almost every living cell, and in studies, it's been shown to completely eliminate inflammation - reducing it up to 100%!
