Top Questions No one has asked a question yet! Be the first!
1. 5% Niacinamide (vitamin b3) which is an antioxidant that also brightens skin tone, treats hyperpigmentation, increases collagen production ( 👌 an important building block for elasticity, and its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles), has anti-inflammatory properties, and is more effective than antibiotics in treating acne.
2. Sodium Hyaluronate (a smaller molecule than hyaluronic acid which allows it to more easily penetrate the skin) which attracts and holds into water giving a “plumping effect” reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and hydrates the skin.
3. Tocopheryl Acetate (a more stable and less acidic form vitamin E) which is atributed with antioxidant, anti-aging, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and enhanced SPF properties.
With that said, I've been battling hyperpigmentation for a few years with only minimal success at treating it. I've tried a host of products with only chemical peels giving me the most dramatic results (removing the epidermal hyperpigmentation and possibly some dermal hyperpigmentation). This product should not be purchase for the sole purpose of treating hyperpigmentation but definitely part of your arsenal for preventing it. From what I have experienced, topical creams/serums only seem to help improve the epidermal melasma and not dermal melasma. Dermal conditions typically have to be treated with lasers or deep peels that are able to penetrate through the epidermis and reach the roots of the problem. This is why some people respond well to lightening creams and others do not.
