3% Tranexamic Acid: This synthetically-derived ingredient minimizes the reoccurrence of skin discolouration and stubborn brown patches with continued use.
1% Kojic Acid: Naturally produced by certain fungi, kojic acid helps improve skin brightness.
5% Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, this water-soluble vitamin is found naturally in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin discolouration.
5% HEPES: This synthetically-derived acid activates natural enzymes in the skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation.
