The Nordic summer. Abbreviated, intense, and filled with extreme light and power. During this brief season of midnight sun, after many months of harsh conditions and freezing temperatures, arctic plants gather their extraordinary strength and energy with astonishing speed. Torture-tested by the elements and harvested by hand, the raw materials of the Arctic are the most potent on Earth. Lumene harnesses the power of these berries and plants into effective skincare and cosmetics developed to illuminate your unique, natural beauty.
