With Epionce, Dr. Carl Thornfeldt takes skin care to a sublime new level. 

As Dr. Carl Thornfeldt began developing the skin-care line Epionce (epionce.com), he hoped to craft consumers products that would go beyond topical solutions. This Boise, Idaho-based dermatologist resolved to create and distribute offerings that address the root causes of common skin problems. Epionce is the result of three decades worth of research and proves one big point: People’s internal health affects their external appearance.

“I examined the underlying problems that cause skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, skin cancer, and fine lines and wrinkles,” Dr. Thornfeldt says. “I found that abnormal skin barrier and chronic inflammation are to blame for many conditions. In order to treat these effectively, we needed to deeply penetrate skin, restore the skin’s barrier, and reverse destructive inflammation.”

“Inflammation” is a term that seems to be popping up everywhere these days, describing diets filled with sugars, trans fats, and processed foods, and the health effects these inflammatory foods can have on our bodies. Thornfeldt notes that inflammation from poor diet, stress, and lack of sleep wreak havoc on skin.

“Clinical trials have shown Epionce to be more than two times as effective as prescription retinols without any irritating reactions such as redness or skin sensitivity,” says Dr. Thornfeldt. “The unique combination of 23 active botanical ingredients give consumers a stronger, healthier skin barrier.” The result: smoother, more radiant skin.

Age, environment, and your own case-specific skin concerns have to be considered when creating a skin regimen. Meanwhile, the vast array of skin products on department and drugstore shelves can create a frustrating experience, as you hunt high and low for the perfect combination. Rather than buying products you don’t need or that exacerbate your skin’s issues, Thornfeldt suggests you arrange a consultation with an Epionce-trained skin-care professional or dermatologist who can recommend the right products for you. (Epionce products are sold and endorsed by many leading dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and skin-care professionals.)

“The foundation of the Epionce line is our Renew & Fortify products,” Dr. Thornfeldt says. “These hydrate, strengthen, and fortify—penetrating the skin to reduce redness and irritation caused by inflammatory factors.”  Customers see superb results, as signs of aging begin to wane and skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema begin to abate. “Follow up with products from our Correct & Boost line,” offers Dr. Thornfeldt, “to minimize wrinkles and age spots, reduce redness, and improve the appearance of uneven skin tone.”

Epionce products are frequently used in conjunction with a cosmetic procedure. Dr. Thornfeldt’s years of devotion have imbued them with the power to calm damaging inflammatory skin factors and build that all-important healthy skin barrier—perfect, before and after cosmetic procedures.

And with that, an ideal home-care regimen is born.
