Note: Alpha Arbutin is a hydroquinone, similar to a retinoid. If you have issues with retinoids (retinol) or have sensitive skin this may be too harsh for your skin. But, you can try our Hyperpigmentation Face Moisturizer that is made without the Alpha Arbutin.

This serum targets dark spots, acne scars, age spots, hyperpigmentation and sun damage while helping prevent new discoloration from forming.

With consistent use results may be:

  • Visibly reduced patches of discoloration.
  • A more even & brighter skin tone.

Alpha Arbutin - 

  • A naturally occurring antioxidant and skin brightener that is naturally found in the bearberry plant
  • Ensures an even, lighter skin tone. 
  • Reduces melanin formation, improving the appearance of age spots, freckles, melasma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation (acne scarring).
  • A high performing enzyme.

Kojic Acid - Prevents melanin production in the upper layers of the skin, resulting in a lighter looking topical layer. Found naturally in many species of fungi and is also the byproduct made during the fermentation of Sake - a Japanese rice wine.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - can improve skin's elasticity, enhance the skin barrier function, help erase discoloration, and revive skin's healthy tone and texture.

How to use

We recommend using this serum daily for at least 6 weeks to see optimal results. Apply 3 to 4 drops to the skin each day, morning and/or night. Gently massage into your face in a circular motion until the serum has absorbed. Follow up with a hydrating moisturizer like our Hyperpigmentation Face Moisturizer or our Firming Face Cream. Always use an SPF when using this product during the day. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
