- A mild yet powerful brightening serum that suitable for sensitised skin
- Enriched with Growth Factors (TGF-b3) and Cytokines
- Gentle enough for daytime use
- No arbutin or hydroquinone
- Tranexamic Acid | A synthetic derivative of the amino acid L-Lysine, that has shown promise in reducing unwanted pigmentation via tyrosinase inhibition and reduction in Prostaglandin E2 production. It also acts as a UV induced pigment inhibitor.
- Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate | A stable, lipid-soluble and highly bioavailable form of Vitamin C that acts as a potent antioxidant, increases collagen production and reduces unwanted pigmentation by reducing the melanogenesis process.
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) | Well-researched benefits include an increase in epidermal ceramide and fatty acid levels, reduction of transepidermal water loss, reduction in unwanted pigmentation, supporting collagen synthesis and decreasing inflammation.
- Stem Cell Conditioned Media | Physiologically balanced bio-signals released upon the culture of bone marrow stem cells help to reduce inflammation, supporting even skin tone and healthy pigmentation.
- Transforming Growth Factor Beta 3 (TGF-b3) | Regulates epidermal and dermal cells in healing skin, modulates inflammation and reduces scar formation.
- N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) | A stable form of glucosamine with increased bioavailability that has proven to reduce melanogenesis and has an even greater performance when combined with Niacinamide.
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) | Epidermal Growth Factor promotes cellular growth and its effects on melanogenesis are hypothesized to be from accelerated wound healing.
- Phytol | A naturally occurring diterpene that comes from the breakdown of chlorophyll in plants, proven to stimulate keratinocyte cell proliferation, upregulate PPAR activity as well as acting on the retinoid-x receptors (RXR).
- Alpha-Bisabolol | A natural terpene found in the chamomile plant. Its depigmentation activity comes from the inhibition of the cAMP response element (CRE), which regulates the alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (a-MSH) activity.
- Liquorice Root Extract | An isoflavonoid found in the liquorice root that has numerous biological properties. It’s an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Its ability to augment melanogenesis comes from its tyrosinase inhibition potential.
- Galangin | A flavonoid found in the ginger family of botanicals shown to have an inhibitory effect on tyrosinase activity, by interacting with the catalytic sites of tyrosinase. The application significantly reduces melanogenesis induced by UVB exposure.
- Oligopeptide-51 | A bioengineered peptide that inhibits tyrosinase activity via TRP-1 and TRP-2 expression. In addition, it supports cellular regeneration.
- Morus Alba Leaf Extract | Active constituent found within the Mulberry leaf proven to inhibit melanin biosynthesis. In addition, it exhibits superoxide scavenging activity and protection against cellular oxidation.
- Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract | Active constituents are known as Catechins within Green Tea, that show strong anti-inflammatory properties and anti-melanogenic effects in skin.
