Inspired by Nordic women. Created with Finnish nature. Born of arctic light.
At the top of the world in the Arctic, where nature is at its wildest and the elements are at their most extreme, are found some of the most potent natural ingredients on the planet. This is where the story of Lumene begins. For over 40 years Lumene, with its heritage in wild Arctic nature has gently harnessed these rare Arctic and Nordic Elixirs combining them with pure Arctic Spring water and carefully selected skincare ingredients to create powerful radiance boosting skincare and makeup that work to restore the skin’s natural strength, beauty and luminosity. All of this, has been done with the ultimate intention of bringing balance and harmony to your skin, mind and soul. Lumene’s inspiration is the unmistakable radiance of Nordic women’s beauty. A beauty born of strength and resilience forged by a primal relationship with the extreme, yet generous Arctic nature.
Our roots lie in the rituals of northern Finland, one of the last un-spoilt sanctuaries on earth. Our formulas harness the power of this untouched Arctic wilderness. They combine exceptionally pure, oxygen-rich, skin pH-friendly Arctic spring water with hand-picked Finnish ingredients – unlike any other. Berries, seeds, plants, tree saps and even mushrooms have evolved in the wild over thousands of years to survive and thrive under a unique and challenging annual light cycle: 8 months of constant purifying, unbroken winter darkness, save for the magical Northern lights, followed by an explosion of 4 consecutive bright months of intense life-giving light, 24 hours a day.
The effects of this contrasted light phenomenon are further amplified by an unusually stable low ground temperature that stimulates Arctic plants to produce extraordinarily high and potent levels of nutrients and anti-oxidants. By capturing the power of these light-charged actives only Lumene channels this reviving light into what we call ‘Arctic Lumenessence’.
