Formulated with Derma – Lite-PS*. An Exclusive Proprietary Blend containing:
  • Alpha-Arbutine: Used in studies as both a skin brightener, and to help remove the appearance of age spots, blotches and freckles. Alpha-Arbutine is a naturally derived substance, usually found in cranberries, blueberries and pears with melanin-inhibiting properties.
  • Licorice extract: is a powder Tyrosinase inhibitor. This anti-oxidant ingredient is 25 times more effective than Kojic acid.
  • Salicylic Acid: is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA). BHA's have been researched and shown to have the ability to penetrate into the pore (AHAs do not), and therefore exfoliate both inside the pore and on the surface of the skin; making it effective for reducing the appearance of blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads. A multifunctional ingredient that addresses many causes of blemishes. Prescribed by dermatologists for decades it is an effective exfoliant, but also an anti-irritant. Containing anti-microbial properties it has been known to help improve skin thickness, barrier functions, collagen production, and is more gentle then alpha-hydroxy acids (including Glycolic Acid).
  • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate: A specific form of Vitamin-C that is used for its brightening/whitenening effect on the skin. However, Vitamin-C is very unstable, and very difficult to penetrate the skin. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate delivers actual Vitamin-C 50-times better then Ascorbic Acid. Plus it has been shown to decrease melanin up to 80%.
  • Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract:found in mountainous regions the extract is a blend of natural botanicals derived from 370 species of highly resistant perennials. Shown in studies to be anti-inflammatory, and to trap free radicals, it also is thought to help reduce skin damage caused by UV radiation.
