#ProductAlert @epionce #WhomYouKnow Kicks Off Coverage of #Epionce as they Celebrate Their 20th Anniversary

The beauty of life is discovering excellence in undiscovered places, and to that end we are sad to say it took us 20 years to find Epionce but we are so glad we did!  Skincare is among our highest priorities, and Epionce is rising to the challenge of being among the most competitive we've tried this year.
Of course, you need to start with clean.  Please meet Lytic Gel Cleanser!

170 ml (6.0 fl oz) | Combination to Oily/Problem Skin 

It's obvious why this is an Epionce fan-favorite.  Other publications have given it multiple award s and we quite concur: Lytic Gel Cleanser is a must-have for oily and problem skin types and to that we'd add combination which is what Peachy has depending on the day and where she has been!  She is in search of a portable humidifier for when she is in dry spaces!  But to moisturize, you need to have clean skin because you do not want to lock in dirt bien sur mes amis.   It effectively dissolves dirt, oil and makeup, and calms the visible appearance of irritated skin without over-drying or leaving the skin feeling tight or stripped of its natural oils.
When Peachy was 3 she destroyed the aloe plant at home because she wanted to have nice skin.  Perhaps the writing was on the wall.  The next step in your Epionce road to excellence is the Intensive Nourishing Cream.  We adore its richness and brilliant results.  

50 g (Net Wt. 1.7 oz) | Photoaged Skin · All Skin Types

We understand this is a NEW FORMULA enhanced with skin-boosting botanicals like Acacia Seed, Maca Root and Green Algae and powerful ceramides.  All of these formulas are new to us as we do not believe we have tried this line before.  The anti-aging power of Intensive Nourishing Cream for face, neck and décolletage contains maximum levels of key complexes to help reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin radiance.  Our belief is that you cannot start soon enough and this is really for all ages to us.  An ultra-rich cream, Intensive Nourishing Cream provides superior hydration for all skin types, especially photoaged skin. Ideal for use as a night cream for superior rejuvenation. This has also earned high marks in other publications.

Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 Sunscreen

1.7 fl oz | All Skin Types

We would like to remind you that just because we have less sun this time of year that does not mean you should skip sunscreen!  The cosmetically elegant Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection that evens out skin tone while imparting a natural-looking healthy glow and we absolutely love it.  While the previous moisturizer is best for night we believe this to be best for day.  It is perfect for all skin types – even sensitive skin – because the very water resistant formula is enhanced with botanical ingredients for antioxidant benefits. Providing sheer protection in just the right amount of color to let skin look bare, Epionce Daily Shield SPF 50 is ideal for daily use alone or under makeup to provide optimum protection from UV exposure. The one shade blends flawlessly making it ideal for most skin types and tones.

Dr. Carl Thornfeldt: The Pioneer on Skin Barrier Research,
Known as "The Father of Skin Barrier Repair"

October 2022 marks the 20th Anniversary of Epionce Skincare, and 20 years of putting the skin barrier first. Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Carl Thornfeldt, Founder of Episciences, created Epionce Skincare to achieve clear, itch-free skin for his patients' chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. Dr. Thornfeldt began his skin barrier research in the early 1990s, through which he established the fundamentals of protecting and strengthening the skin barrier, which are used across the entire skincare industry today. Truly a pioneer, he was awarded with the first ever patent on skin barrier health in 1997.

Dr. Thornfeldt is always on a mission to create effective skincare products that drive active ingredients into the skin without breaking down or irritating the barrier. After years of intense research on the topic, he looked to botanicals for a solution, which at the time was not readily accepted by the medical community. In 2002, the flagship Epionce Renewal Facial Cream was born and sold exclusively through Dr. Thornfeldt's own medical practice in Southwest Idaho. This barrier repair formula leverages extracts of safflower, rosa canina, avocado and flax to achieve the optimum ratio of lipids. Advanced clinical testing confirmed that this formula accelerated barrier repair more than twice as effectively as 100% petrolatum, and four times better than any commercially available moisturizer used by the dermatology community.

In 2006 at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) annual event, Dr. Thornfeldt presented a Clinical Study on Epionce Renewal Facial Cream's antiaging powers. When paired with Epionce Lytic Tx, participants and physicians saw the same antiaging results typically achieved with retinoids, but without the irritation often caused by retinoids due to their damaging impact on the skin barrier.

Epionce barrier nurturing products are backed by patient safety studies and decades of proven clinical results. These are proven formulations that address skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea, as well as skin aging, which are common results of a damaged skin barrier. The products fall into four main categories: Cleanse & Repair, Correct & Boost, Renew & Fortify, Protect & Prevent, and are designed to be customized by a medical professional for a patient's skin type and concern.

"Epionce Skincare has grown from one product sold in our one practice in Idaho to nearly 30 barrier protecting products recommended, trusted and sold by dermatologists worldwide, in more than 10 countries," said Dr. Thornfeldt. "We're proud to say that we have helped millions of people achieve their skin care goals without the use of harmful chemicals that damage the skin barrier."

Epionce Skincare has received multiple beauty awards in leading national publications including NewBeauty, Shape and Women's Health; and in 2015 was awarded the best topical skincare at the Aesthetic Industry Awards. Dr. Thornfeld has published eight national studies on barrier health, which is why he has become known as the "Father of Barrier Repair."

To meet global demands, Epionce Skincare built its own 18,000-square foot laboratory and manufacturing facility in Boise where all Epionce products are researched, designed, formulated and tested for superior product performance, safety, freshness and efficacy. Dr. Thornfeldt continues his skin barrier research in this facility, conducting new studies that will enable Epionce Skincare to further enhance skin barrier health. Medical heritage and clinical research is at the heart of Epionce and fulfills Dr. Thornfeldt's mantra, "if you keep the skin barrier healthy, beautiful skin follows."

Epionce Skincare is available in the U.S. through thousands of medical skin professionals as well as, and
