A Luxurious, Silky light fluid cream color serum lightly scented with Lavender.
Tranexamic acid is an exciting topical ingredient to fade the look of several types of skin discolorations. Research has shown the effectiveness of this ingredient rivals that of gold standard hydroquinone and is even suitable for those with melasma.
A super power ingredient.. This nutrient helps to prevent the look of hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes (melanin-producing cells) to skin cells that would lead to uneven skin tone and a dull complexion. It also works to strengthen the skin’s barrier and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. The visible benefits are hard to miss: niacinamide minimizes the look of redness, boosts glow, reduces the look of pores, minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, aids in regulating oil levels across all skin types, and protects against environmental aggressors and oxidative stress
The secret combination of Niacinamide and Hexyl Resorcinol Cocktail is that Hexylresorcinol acts directly on the active biological melanin pathway to stop melanin product right at the source and leaves skin immediately feeling and looking brighter. Niacinimide works similarly, except it doesn't halt melanin product itself. Niacinimide is the sabotages the melanin and skin, intercepting the transfer of any pigmentation.
WHAT DOES ALPHA ARBUTIN DO?
Alpha arbutin acts as a tyrosinase competitive inhibitor and also slows melanosome maturation (the organelles that synthesize and store melanin or pigment).3 This is significant because it works on two different mechanisms of pigmentation. Melanin is derived from the amino acid tyrosine and this conversion is regulated by the enzyme tyrosinase. Alpha arbutin is similar in structure to tyrosine, which fits into tyrosinase, needed for melanogenesis. This means that alpha arbutin is reversibly competing with tyrosine for a spot on the enzyme and not inhibiting cell viability, so therefore is not cytotoxic. By targeting tyrosinase, the rate-limiting enzyme in melanin formation, as well as slowing production of the organelles that produce melanin, alpha arbutin is a potent skin brightening agent.
How to use:
Unlock by turning left then press the button to dispense serum on the roller. Apply to the targeted areas of concern AM & PM. For best results, use it in conjunction with Advanced Protection SPF 30.
Tranexamic Acid – is a powerful ingredient that helps to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to improve skin texture and tone. It interferes with melanin production by blocking the interaction between melanocytes and keratinocytes as well as the conversion and production of melanin within the melanocyte.
Niacinamide – Inhibits melanosome transfer between melanocytes and keratinocytes. It helps to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.
Alpha-Arbutin – Inhibits tyrosinase activity and acts as a substrate to bind with MC1R receptor and block a-MSH from binding to melanocytes. Alpha-arbutin is a powerful skin brightener that helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to improve skin texture and tone.
Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract – Strong inhibitory effects on melanogenesis by controlling the transcription of tyrosinase and reducing the peptide endothelin. Daisy flower extract is known for its brightening properties. It helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and even out skin tone.
Hexyl Resorcinol – Clinically shown to be as effective as 2% hydroquinone. Competitive inhibitor of monophenolase (converting tyrosinase to DOPA) and helps to stimulate glutathione synthesis. Hexylresorcinol is a powerful skin brightener that helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
Licorice Root Extract – Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits alongside its ability to help disperse melanin that is already in the skin. Licorice root extract is known for its skin-brightening properties. It helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, leaving the skin looking brighter and more even.
Grape Seed Oil – Grape seed oil is rich in linoleic acid and is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from environmental damage. It also helps to nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
