About Lovinah Skincare,

Joy Ekhator is the founder of Lovinah and growing up in a traditional African home in her native Nigeria, she experienced the healing powers of mother nature through her grandmother who was an herbalist, traditional doctor, bone setter and midwife. It was through the ancient African knowledge of plants that had been passed down through to her, that she was able to heal her own skin conditions after having three children in three years, while working full-time as a computer programmer which caused hormonal imbalance, that resulted in weight gain and cystic acne.

Joy created LOVINAH to show a modern representation of Ancient African Beauty secrets passed down from generations to generations. Joy's background is in medicine and computer science. She developed her love for plants by watching her grandmother administer herbs for different ailments. Her interest in the connection between the mind, body and soul, bring LOVINAH users a well-balanced experience, and an opportunity to experience her personal knowledge of ancient African beauty rituals

LOVINAH is my passion and I am always amazed by the healing power of plants and gemstones. I started LOVINAH from a need to help my children and I, after going through three back to back pregnancies, working full time as a computer programmer / project manager, my hormones were all over the place for my already acne prone skin. I developed very painful cystic acne and tried everything, but nothing worked. Also my children had very problematic skin. After visiting so many doctors, the turning point was when my youngest son got prescribed steroids . I refused to put him on steriods and decided to visit mother nature for her healing powers. I have no regrets, because mother nature healed my children and I with her supernatural powers.

LOVINAH is a powerful union of ancient African beauty rituals using traditional herbs, exotic oils and extracts, perfected by modern technology to give your skin a supernatural glow, while honoring your divine beauty and reconnecting you to mother earth.

  • Lovinah Dragon C Vitamin C and Bio-Retinol Brightening Elixir

Please Note: Limited quantities. This Box Ships in February.

Lovinah Ocean Rituals AHA+BHA Cleansing Balm: This gorgeous vibrant blue gem, which evokes the sea, is the most luscious and ultra-luxe cleansing balm imaginable. This is such a thing of beauty from its velvety smooth texture– which is a tactile experience that creates profound joy (pun intended)– that I am nearly at a loss for words. It has a light and natural aroma that is calming, uplifting and it beautifully engages the senses. This antioxidant-rich balm, which is composed of oils such as Milk Thistle, Blueberry & Kakadu Plum, also includes effective ingredients such as  Sea Lettuce & Blue Spirulina. In addition to effortlessly and effectively cleaning the skin, the encapsulated Lactic and Salicylic Acids gently exfoliate dead skin cells, and reveal glowing, healthy skin. Unlike many oil-based cleansing balms, this balm undergoes a metamorphosis from balm-to oil-to milk that can easily be rinsed off with warm water. Skin is left soft, smooth, supple and unmistakably luminous. This is a truly extraordinary cleansing balm.

According to Lovinah,

A daily multi-tasking product to mask, exfoliate and cleanse the skin. This magical exfoliating cleansing balm will help remove makeup and impurities to reveal glowing skin. An unparalleled, deep cleansing ritual targeting skin blemishes or acne prone skin to gently remove dead skin cells leaving the skin perfectly clean, soft and nourished without stripping the skin of its natural oils.

This luxurious non-comedogenic emulsifying acid cleansing balm, transforms on the skin into oil and then milky emulsion which gently dissolves makeup, dirt, toxins and pollutants, leaving the skin feeling super-soft, deeply cleansed, calm and radiant. Ocean Rituals is enriched lactic acid, salicylic acid, acid, fruit acids , vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants to help your skin glow better.

Directions: Scoop a generous dollop of balm and dispense it into the palm of the hand. Using fingertips, apply perfectly on the skin by massaging in a circular motion until the balm transforms into a silky oil. Splash face with lukewarm water to transform the oil into a milky emulsion and rinse until the skin feels clean and free of residue. Follow with your normal skincare ritual.

Ingredients: Silybum Marianum Seed Oil, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Seed Oil,Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Seed, Sambucus Nigra Seed Oil, Ulva lactuca (Sea Lettuce extract), Spirulina platensis (Blue Spirulina) Tocopherol, Polyglyceryl-3 Palmitate, Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate, Polyglyceryl-3-palmitate ,Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate (and) Glyceryl Stearate (and) Stearyl Alcohol, D-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil & Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/Leaf Extract & Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract & Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract & Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract & Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Lactic Acid, Capryloyl salicylic acid, Encapsulated salicylic acid (SA) Achillea millifolium, Citrus sinensis oil.

Lovinah Dragon-C Vitamin C and Bio-Retinol Brightening Elixir: This antioxidant-rich Vitamin C based facial oil is my current favorite luxury face oil, and for me that is a significant claim– given my longstanding love of luxury face oils. This brightening elixir, which is composed in a base of Dragon Fruit Oil, also includes Kakadu Plum Oil, Goji Berry Oil, Lingonberry Oil, Raspberry Oil , Mongongo Nut Oil, Mongongon Nut Oil– to name a few of its nourishing oils.

Unlike many Vitamin C based products that quickly oxidize, Lovinah Dragon-C Vitamin C and Bio-Retinol Brightening Elixir contains a very stable form of Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, selected because it is a highly absorptive form of oil-soluble Vitamin C. Furthermore, Kakadu Plum, Dragon Fruit and Goji Berry were selected since they are very rich in Vitamin C. 

The texture of this oil is like crushed velvet, and the scent has a heavenly natural fruity sensibility that defies description. This otherworldly oil, which is lightweight and fast-absorbing, melts into the skin and leaves it soft, smooth, moisturized, brightened and glowing. I can't recall ever being quite this impressed by, or obsessed with, a face oil. This is truly covet-worthy.

According to Lovinah,

Dragon-C is a high-performance brightening elixir that enhances skin’s natural defense system to brighten, firm, tone, plump and help dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Dragon-C Vitamin C & Bio-Retinol Brightening Elixir strategically sources multiple versions of skincare's most-reached-for active ingredients in highly stable, natural forms. Vitamin C and retinol are two of skincare's dermatological staples for daily protection, prejuvenation, and anti-aging, and here they join forces in an age-defying, brightening powerhouse that can be used daily on all skin types.

Supercharged with 30% vitamin C & 2% Bakuchiol, this powerful skin elixir features potent antioxidants to help brighten and enhance your complexion. This luxuriously silky oil glides on and absorbs fast to create a healthy, youthful-looking glow. Dragon-C Elixir contains skin-protecting antioxidants that work very hard to guard against oxidative stress caused by sun and other environmental elements, which contribute to the look of premature fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Directions: Apply to clean, dry skin the face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area in the morning and night.
