What ingredients does Humaniti use and why?
Our Acne Spot Remedy uses Niacinamide, alpha-lipoic acid and biotin. For our Moisturizing Cream for Eczema we use grapeseed oil and ceramides.
Our Customized Skin Care product uses some of these key ingredients:
+ Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an ingredient that will help you in many areas of your skincare regimen because it aids in the fight against aging skin and the underlying causes of that aging without the need for injections or surgery. Remember the effects that Vitamin C can have as an ingredient in skin cream:
- Lightens the skin
- Increases collagen production
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
- Decreases infammation
+ Vitamin E
Vitamin E has healing properties that help the skin prevent and reverse damage caused by UV rays. It is especially useful for treating sunburn, UV-induced redness, skin photo-aging that presents itself in the form of wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation of the skin. It is an oily or greasy substance so may not be ideal for those who have problems with oily skin, but it will help to deal with the effects the sun and its harmful rays have on the skin. Vitamin E can prevent skin problems caused by UV exposure as follows:
- UV-induced redness
- Skin photo-aging (wrinkles)
+ Green Tea
Green tea can be beneficial for preventing skin damage and cancer from ultraviolet (UV) radiation due to the antioxidant effects of the polyphenols it contains. Polyphenolic extracts of green tea, specifically EGCG and epicatechin-3-gallate, when used on the skin, seem to protect against UVA and UVB sunburn. Green tea extracts also seem to prevent UV radiation-induced DNA damage.
Niacinamide is another ingredient that will allow you to look after your skin and keep its appearance as young as possible for as long as possible. Niacinamide helps you age gracefully by:
- Improving skin texture and increasing its barrier properties
- Acting as an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial
- Decreasing oil production
- Reducing itching through its anti-histamine properties
- Reducing hyper-pigmentation/yellowing of skin
- Being photo-protective
Retinoids counteract many of the things that cause wrinkles are countered by retinoids. They are a vital component of any good skin cream, and they help perform the following functions:
- Protect skin from UV radiation
- Reduce fine lines and the appearance of wrinkles
- Reduce the breakdown of collagen
- Increase collagen production
- Reduce hyper-pigmentation
- Increase skin hydration
+ Palmitoyl Pentapeptide
This anti-wrinkle ingredient stimulates new collagen production.
+ Hyaluronic Acid
As we age, we need to use moisturizers that contain hyaluronic acid to keep our skin hydrated and moisturized. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical in our body and is also used as a dermal filler for our wrinkles.

We offer phone consultations or online face-to-face meetings with our specialists. Please provide a picture of yourself so we can assess existing skin conditions prior to our meeting; you can submit via email. After our consultation, we will mail the creams directly to your door.
What is customized skincare?
A lot of time, people tell us, “Oh yeah, I get customized skincare too. My esthetician picks out the perfect products that she thinks I need so it’s customized to my skin needs.” However, for us, customized skincare means that we combine ALL the ingredients we think you need and put them in ONE bottle. We don’t mass produce our customized anti-aging creams. We make them one at a time, blending different ingredients that we think are best for your skin.

Yes. The only thing we don’t have samples for is our customized anti-aging cream because it’s specially made for one person at a time.
