The Science Behind the Product
MakeSense Foundation with SenePlex also provides and offers an unprecedented mechanical shield for protection throughout the day. The application of a MakeSense Foundation with SenePlex layered on top of any SeneDerm® DayTime Moisturizer gives your skin the benefits of a mechanical shield by boosting the SPF 15 of the moisturizer, so that when combined it produces a mechanical shield that delivers protection the equivalency of an SPF 30.
MakeSense Foundation with SenePlex formulations is:
- Non-smearing, long-lasting coverage.
- Oil free - can be used on any skin type.
- Non-comedogenic - does not clog pores.
- Adapts to skin pigmentation – versatile in that one skin color may be able to use a range of up to three different shades (or vice-versa for tanning) because of the way the color pigments adapt to skin tones.
- Helps to reduce moisture loss.
- Provides another layer of SenePlex Complex.
Key Ingredients and Benefits
The uniqueness of this foundation is not only in its content but also in what it does NOT contain. Ingredients utilized in the foundation include minerals and do not contain oils, emulsifiers, waxes, stearates (salts), fatty, alcohols, or sulfates.
Here are a few key components:
- SenePlex Complex – Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.
- Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract – a plant native to the South Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum moisturization.The Cymbidium Grandifloum (Orchid) Flower Extract is very effective as a sunscreen.
- Algae (Seaweed) Extract – hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.
- Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate) – Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells.
- Yeast Extract – a source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex) that aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.
- Glucosamine HCL – enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
- Cyclomethicone – a silicone that feels silky on the skin introduces moisture and is a water-binding agent that holds up well, even when the skin becomes wet.
- Propylene Glycol – organic compound used as a ‘carrier’ or ‘holder’ of active ingredients that also softens skin.

MakeSense Foundation® – such a smart product! Skin Care, beauty and sun shield all in one. - Unknown
I want to rave about the fact that since using Daytime Moisturizer and Foundation for the last 5 or more years, my pale face has not gotten sunburned, not even a hint of red or peeling. I can't tell you how much this means as my fair skin, especially my nose, has burned and peeled for years. I have spent hours in the sun and never had so much as a tinge. What makes me even happier is that I have not, since using SeneGence, had to put a commercial sunscreen on my face, which has always made me break out. Now my skin stays clear and soft and when I need more color, SeneGence is there with whatever I need. - Lynn L.
MakeSense Foundation® is absolutely the best. I always receive compliments on my complexion and I truly believe it is because of the SeneDerm® Skincare and Foundation, which is oil-free and non-comedogenic and light as a feather yet provides excellent coverage and sun protection. If I could have only one product it would be the Foundation! - Linda G.
It blends smoothly to the skin, protects from UV rays, sets, stays and makes me look great! What more can you ask for in a Foundation? - Michele A.
I am in love with the MakeSense Pearlizer! Sometimes I wear it by itself or over my foundation. My face immediately becomes radiant and luminescent and I know that I am getting another layer of the anti-aging benefits of the SenePlex Complex. Everyone always comments on my beautiful skin. - Kaylen Y.
I own and run a very busy hairdressing salon. I was introduced to SeneGence® five years ago and I haven't stopped introducing LipSense® to whoever wants to listen since then. I love the MakeSense Foundation®- great cover, light, and the finish is flawless. Amazing products, amazing service! - Vicki M.
The foundation is the best. It delivers! It stays on and you can have that all-day fresh look without any touch ups. - Bridget L.
I think the foundation is light and looks great all day long. I've never had anything that makes me feel so finished. - Kitty W.
I am so excited about this product! I am 39 and my sister is 41. We needed something that looked natural yet had good coverage (not cakey). This is it! We have only started using this product and we already LOVE it! Thank you SeneGence®! - Julie S.
