WILD PLANT POWER
globally-sourced ORGANIC and RARE BOTANICAL ACTIVES
NILOTICA RESERVE ™
A rare sub-species of shea that grows wild in the Nile River Valley, vitellaria nilotica is packed with Vitamins A and E, plus high levels of olein, an essential fatty acid, and catechins, the antioxidant found in green tea.
Aloe vera’s more potent cousin, wild aloe ferox, or Cape Aloe is native to Southern Africa and known for its active medicinal and skin-healing properties. It’s used locally for acne, scars, burns, and sun damage.
Packed with powerful AHAs (natural pyretic and citric acids, found in flowers and seed pods), plus sky-high antioxidant content, hibiscus is nature’s exfoliator and used to refine pores in our best-selling Creme du Nil.
The most potent antioxidant in the spice family, vanilla is a powerful skin-preserver. Ours is harvested wild from orchids on the slopes of Western Uganda, where the active vanillin content is the highest in the world.
"Formulated with organic fruit butter harvested from the trees that line the Nile River, this ultra-moisturizing treatment turns dry, flaky fall skin into a distant memory."
"The anti-aging ingredient you've never heard of that will transform your skin"
"When I tried it, my jaw dropped. Never before had my travel-ravaged skin looked or felt so smooth and plump."
"Luxury products with a unique sense of place--a terroir, just like wine."
"Nilotica Reserve delivers up to 25 percent more essential fatty acids than traditional shea butter. It's perfect as an under-makeup base or a hydrating night cream."
"For all kinds of unhappy dry skin, LMXI (pronounced Lux-Me) proves that light ingredients can deliver intense moisture."
"There are shelves of beauty products that do great things for your skin and others that do great things for the world. But natural beauty pioneer Leila Janah's luxury skincare line, LXMI, does both."
"A moisturizer that promises to target pores, texture, and even sticky fine lines thanks to hydrating squalane, shea butter, and glycerin."
"My combo dry-oily skin also loved the hibiscus flower acids, which provide some genius, pore-refining exfoliation."
"The Chanel of social impact"
"Rich in vitamins A and E, it’s proven to restore skin’s elasticity and is the number one beauty ingredient in this region by far."
I truly love LXMI products. I use the melt night and day, on face and body. I have recently begun to use the lip melt as well. These are wonderful, pure products with a social conscience that really deliver.
For years, I've been searching for a good moisturizer that is organic and fragrance free and it is a blessing that I finally found LXMI products. I never break out and my skin is so hydrated.
LXMI products help my dry skin. I use it on my hands and it melts into my skin within seconds. The product is high quality an has a lovely scent. It's a touch of luxury for your skin care routine.
