So What Exactly Are Liquid Crystals?

Want to know our secret for an uber hydrated, radiant-looking complexion? Two words: Liquid Crystals. This magical ingredient not only makes some of our most Instagram-worthy products—including Opti Crystal, Emulsion and Lumi Crystal—look beautiful, but it also provides unprecedented, lasting hydration. There is one word that describes these products and ingredient—Intense! Intense hydration. Intense results.

The liquid crystal technology used in our formulas helps lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles and visibly plump the skin for a more youthful appearance. Isn’t that what we all want? The newest member of the COSMEDIX family and lip-loving sister to our beloved Opti Crystal, Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator, boasts a 94% pure liquid crystal base, making it both functional and beautiful. The liquid crystal base gives it a natural iridescent sheen on the lips that allows you to wear it alone or over any of your favorite lip products. 

With just a small, pin-sized drop of Opti Crystal, commonly referred to as “magical unicorn tears”, helps combats the appearance of tired, puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines. Opti Crystal’s 99% liquid crystal base has made it a fan favorite and best-seller over the years. Popularity amongst our loyal customers sparked our creativity and inspired us to make a lip version with a similar formula—Lumi Crystal.

Emulsion Intense Hydrator is a complex moisturizer that is full of lipid barrier-restoring ingredients and, of course, liquid crystals! It’s perfect for getting back your youthful, healthy-looking glow. With the addition of shea butter, Emulsion is ultra-moisturizing and ideal to help lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
