4 Epionce Ingredients and What They’ll Do for Your Skin

7 November, 2016 | posted by Carly Poore

Natural skincare ingredients are having their moment in the spotlight as health experts boast of their benefits to skin. When Epionce Founder and CEO Dr. Carl Thornfeldt first developed the line over 15 years ago, he understood the benefit of unique herbs in skincare. Decades of botanical research proved to him that herbal extracts were more gentle to skin, provided multiple functionalities and were stable when formulated in a skincare product. Learn more below about how some of these botanical ingredients can help improve your skin’s appearance.

Meadowfoam Extract

As a key Epionce botanical ingredient, Meadowfoam plays a big part in the efficacy of the Renewal products, improving the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Meadowfoam is also found in LyticsEnriched Firming Mask and Ultra Shield SPF50 to help calm redness. It is one of the richest plant sources of monounsaturated fatty acids (good fats) that are necessary for healthy-looking skin. This dynamic little flower also helps increase the feeling of firmness and tightness in the skin.

Date extract

This fruit is a rich source of antioxidants – even more than green tea or blueberry, to help guard against free radicals that can damage skin. As a key ingredient in Renewals and Cleansers, Date helps improve the feeling of firmness and tightness in the skin. Date is also formulated in Renewals for its anti-ageing properties, including minimising the visible appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and rough texture. Date is known to help reduce the visible appearance of unwanted dark spots.


The mysterious root, sometimes known as Turmerone, is gaining popularity for its anti-inflammatory benefits when used in cooking or health supplements. The knobby plant is found in MelanoLyte Pigment Perfection Serum. Like Date, Turmeric is one of several key botanical sources that work synergistically to reduce the visible appearance of dark spots and help improve the appearance of skin brightness.

Shiitake mushroom

Shiitake mushroom is found in Intense Defense Serum. The common fungi is a rich source of vitamins A, B, C and D – key to the multivitamin Epionce anti-aging serum. Shiitake’s powerful but gentle combination of vitamins contributes to the robust mix of botanicals in Intense Defense Serum that help improve the visible appearance of signs of ageing.
