Hyper-pigmentation--ingredients matter

Expensive treatments are available for addressing pigmentation in the skin, but you can also help combat the appearance of hyper-pigmentation (dark brown spots on the face) by incorporating a proper skin care approach. Look for products that contain safe pigment lightening ingredients as well as plant derived extracts that will nourish the skin as well as brighten it. Using products that target pigmentation require consistency. It is also very important to prevent future pigmentation by using a sunscreen (SPF30) daily.

Our top ingredient picks:

Arbutin – Arbutin, a natural skin brightener. It targets tyrosinase (an enzyme) that produces pigment.

Kojic Acid – Kojic Acid is a skin lightening agent that targets melanin production and is an alternative to hydroquinone. Kojic Acid blocks tyrosine from forming and helps to fade discoloration caused by environmental damage (sun exposure), aging and other factors.

Ferulic Acid – Ferulic Acid, a cutting edge ingredient, is an powerful anti-oxidant that aids in neutralizing free radicals and preventing UV sun damage.

Niacinamide – Niacinamide, which is a form of Vitamin B3, helps to balance skin and slow down melanin production. It's also an excellent skin conditioner.

Use high quality ingredients consistently and you will see a big difference over time!
