Environmental aggressors, UV, and pollution lead to premature ageing; stressing skin and affecting its function.
This causes free radicals to attack cell membranes, breaking them down; leaving skin discoloured, dehydrated, and dry
Hyperpigmentation is difficult to treat. It requires the use of skin-lightening agents which selectively target melanocyte cells and melanin deposits that cause discolouration. With the recent safety concern regarding the use of hydroquinone, the need for alternative, natural, safe, and efficacious skin lightening ingredients is becoming all the more necessary
The aim with this formula is threefold: Firstly, to create a lightening treatment that is significantly less cytotoxic than hydroquinone. Secondly, to deliver a protective veil of natural antioxidants to the skin; protecting against inflammation and reversing some of the ravages of oxidative stress. Thirdly, to provide an anti-ageing remedy that lifts and illuminates; reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and expression lines for a uniform, bright complexion.
The result is an incredible elixir that works with the skin’s own natural process of repair and renewal. Co-Enzyme Q10 boosts the skin’s oxygen intake, which is key to the cell renewal process. Revolutionary grape extract supplies the skin with scavengers that hunt down particles left over from pollution residue, whilst active botanical extracts – including Liquorice and Bearberry – balance and brighten uneven skin tone and signs of micro-pigmentation. Clinical trials carried out on Japanese women with melasma showed that a 3% concentration of Bearberry extract alone produced effective results in 71.4% of patients during a three-month period.
Skin health is boosted further with intensive, hydrating humectants, which optimise water circulation throughout the skin’s layers – reducing moisture loss, boosting the skin’s Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF), keeping delicate skin plump and protected.
Tip: it’s important to be realistic about how quickly you see results. Whilst the initial tone-enhancing benefits may be noticeable from the first week of daily use, pigmentation can often be deep-rooted, so benefits at large are continuing and cumulative and may take up to 3 months.
