Embrace Aging: Q & A with Founder of Louminology Leah Hollender

Produced in Switzerland, Louminology is an opulent skincare brand that uses only hand-picked active ingredients in every product. The extraordinary line is the innovation of CEO and founder Leah Hollender. After spending many years in the beauty industry, Hollender noticed that there was a significant need to enhance skin radiance. With her vast knowledge and experience combined with the help of top chemists in Switzerland, Louminology was born. I had the privilege to hear more about Hollender’s brand and her fascinating and inspiring life. Read on!

Let’s start from the beginning: Every Beauty Brand has a story, what is Louminology’s?

I created Louminology to help women love the skin they were born with and reveal their natural beauty. I’ve always believed that beauty is the science of self-love, and a good skincare product is one that you look forward to using each and every time. As a child in an ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish family, I grew up completely isolated from the secular world. Throughout my childhood, in my experience, I heard messages that women must be unseen and educational opportunities were limited, yet despite this, I always felt drawn to do something greater than what I was told I could do. 

For 17 years, I worked in the skincare industry where I saw the lengths women would go to feel beautiful, only to further cause damage to their skin in the process. I finally realized I needed to be the change I wanted to see and decided to create my own skincare line that would be gentle enough for long term use while still offering results. 

What makes Louminology stand out from other anti-aging brands?

Louminology products aim to help you embrace aging, not fight it. We use scientifically proven ingredients that facilitate the skin’s natural processes without seeking to overthrow them. This includes ingredients and formulas that help replenish the skin’s moisture levels, protect the skin’s natural barrier, and help reduce oxidative stress from everyday environmental factors such as UV and pollution. 

All of our products are formulated with high-quality, ethically sourced ingredients derived from botanicals native to the Swiss Alps where they have had to adapt to their harsh climate and environment to thrive. This leads to a higher concentration of antioxidants, peptides, and other vitamins that protect the plant against environmental stress and offer the same properties when applied to the skin.

What are your most popular products and why?

Our Precious Pearl Serum is truly a one-of-a-kind skincare product that does a bit of everything. It’s a unique, multifunctional serum that can be used AM and PM and can also be used as a makeup primer that offers both instant and long-term results. It’s formulated with nourishing crushed pearls and Starpearl spheres that are each specially encapsulated with potent actives like antioxidants, peptides, and amino acids to create a blurred effect to the skin with a subtle glow. It also gives an instant lift, minimizes the appearance of pores, and makes the complexion appear firmer. With consistent use, it helps restore elasticity and bounce to the skin for a smoother and healthier-looking complexion over time. 

Ultimately, the combination of unique formulation, multifunctionality, and exceptional results has made our precious pearl serum a beloved favorite among our customers. It stands as a testament to our commitment to providing innovative, effective, and transformative skincare solutions.

How does your team approach research and development for product formulations?

I have personally tested and developed all of our products along with a team of Swiss chemists using ingredients that have been clinically studied and tested for safety and effectiveness. I also believe in brand transparency and educating consumers on all of our ingredients, formulas, and manufacturing practices, so they feel good about the products they are putting on their skin.  
Louminology believes in educating consumers on our ingredients, formulas, and manufacturing practices and we invite you to follow us along on our journey. The Skinology 101 section on our website goes into more detail about the amazing ingredients we use, and the studies done on their effects on the skin.

Anything else you would like our readers to know about Louminology?

We have several more exciting products in development that will feature exclusive blends that continue to illuminate and enhance the complexion while reversing prior damage and protecting against future skin concerns. We are always striving to be true to our mission and never lose sight of you, the most important part of our family. Lastly, I want to remind you that beauty is already in you. Beauty is the sincere expression of who you are.
