Featured Ingredients:

Kojic’s acid primary use — and benefit — is to lighten visible sun damage, age spots, or scars. This can result in an anti-aging effect on the skin. In addition to all this, kojic acid also contains some antimicrobial properties. It may help fight off several common types of bacterial strains even in small dilutions. This can help treat acne caused by bacteria in the skin. It may also lighten scars from acne that haven’t faded yet.

Kojic acid also has antifungal properties. It’s even added to some antifungal products to increase their effectiveness. It may be useful in treating fungal infections of the skin like yeast infections, candidiasis, and ringworm or athlete’s foot. If soap containing kojic acid is used regularly, it may help prevent both bacterial and fungal infections on the body.

Niacinamide can help build proteins in the skin and lock in moisture to prevent environmental damage. Niacinamide can help your skin grow a ceramide (lipid) barrier, which can, in turn, helps retain moisture. This is beneficial for all skin types, especially if you have eczema or mature skin. Niacinamide reduces inflammation, which may help ease redness from eczemaacne, and other inflammatory skin conditions.  Keeping skin smooth and moisturized may have a secondary benefit — a natural reduction in pore size over time. The benefits of moisture retention aren’t just for those with dry skin types. Niacinimide can also help regulate the amount of oil the sebaceous glands produce and prevent your glands from going into overdrive. Some research has found 5 percent niacinamide concentrations can be helpful in lightening dark spots. Benefits were seen after four weeks, but not beyond two months. This benefit may be due to increased collagen production. Research has also found that the same concentration was helpful in reducing some signs of sun damage that come with aging. This includes fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide may be helpful for severe acne, especially inflammatory forms like papules and pustules. Over time, you may see fewer lesions and improved skin texture.

Zinc oxide has been found to have the following uses and benefits:

Helping to lower skin inflammation associated with rashes, allergies or irritation (including diaper rash). Providing broad-spectrum sun protection that prevents burns (including on photo-sensitive skin). Aiding in recovery of burns and damaged tissue. Helping to treat acne breakouts. Lowering inflammatory dermatoses (including rosacea). Preventing aging of the skin and improving synthesis of collagen and forming of new connective tissue

Aloe Vera

Helps to moisturize the skin

Unlike regular, market-bought moisturizers, Aloe Vera gel when used as a moisturizing gel doesn’t leave a greasy film on the face and the skin. In fact, it does just the opposite – it unclogs the pores and softens the skin.

It can be used as an aftershave-treatment. This is because the Aloe Vera gel helps to keep the skin hydrated and heals burns by razor and smaller nicks & cuts. It also helps treat dry skin.

Fights skin-aging

Aloe Vera gel has vitamin C and E, beta-carotene in abundance. Therefore, it has anti-aging properties. It also contains antimicrobial properties and is anti-inflammatory. It also helps to eradicate skin blemishes and diminish age lines. Additionally, it helps to increase the production of collagen in the body and skin elasticity.

Reduces infection and acne

Those who suffer from acne will find respite in Aloe Vera. It helps in gentle cleansing, and its antimicrobial properties treat pimples without causing any damages to the skin. It is an antiseptic that allows protection against bacteria. Aloe Vera contains polysaccharides and gibberellins. These help in the growth of new cells and at the same time, reduce inflammation and redness. It also works as an astringent that reduces the size of pores, flushing out the excess sebum, microbes, and dirt.

Lightens blemishes on the face

As we already know, Aloe Vera contains powers to boost skin cell reproduction, reduce redness and fight skin inflammation, it is a natural treatment for stretch marks and acne marks. To treat freckles and lighten age spots, add some lemon juice to the gel mixture. It is one of the perfect home remedies for glowing skin.

Good so far but clumpy

When I applied it I noticed that it’s clumpy when I rub it into my skin. There’s a residue that starts to show and I have to get a towel and like throw it off my cheeks and stuff.

Amazing face cream!

I started to use this amazing face cream for acne and I couldn't believe the results I was seeing! My terrible red patches were fading, my acne was going away, my dark spots were fading, and I was so surprised and elated at my results. I took the time to get my skincare recommendations and can't thank you enough for recommending my skincare products. I am thrilled with my results, and tell everyone about your products. Having Celiac disease and tons of allergies made it impossible to find a skincare routine that didn't cause bad reations until I found Epilynx. Thank you so much!

I have oily, very acne-prone skin, and I suffer from dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This cream does wonders for my skin! I use it day and night! I try to look for products that do not exacerbate my sebum/oil production on my face while also not irritating my skin so I dont break out. This kojic acid cream is oil-free and it truly helps control the oiliness of my skin. It is also one of the only creams I have used so far that does not break me out on my forehead (which is where I get the worst breakouts) and my t-zone. Additionally, because of the kojic acid and niacinamide, I can see that dark spots and hyperpigmentation marks from previous breakouts have lightened and/or completely disappeared. I am so very grateful towards Dr. Liia for this formulation and for catering this product towards those with such a complex skin type as mine. Truly, thank you!

This product was a bit too harsh for my skin. I have extremely hypersensitive skin and this cream made my skin irritated and red. No worries though Dr. Liia, the CBD cream is working out wonderfully.


I am so sorry to hear!! Yes, usually these types of products are made with retinol which is very harsh for any skin but does wonders for the acne prone skin. This contains kojic acid but no oils so the acne and oily skin are not aggravated further. Probably the lack of oils does not suit with your skin. Yes, please stick with Hemp seed cream and the sunrise and rejuvenation creams and serums!!!
