Skincare Concerns: Dark Spots and Dullness/Uneven Texture
- Activated C: A vitamin C derivative known to help visibly reduce dark spots and prevent the formation of new skin discolorations; this potent form of vitamin C penetrates skin quickly to help visibly even skin tone and improve clarity.
- White Birch Extract: A sugar-derived ingredient known for its ability to restore hydration and nutrients to the skin; this potent active ingredient works with Activated C to help even skin tone.
- Peony Extract: A natural antioxidant that helps protect against oxidative damage; this works with activated C to enhance skin clarity.
Ingredient Callouts: This product is dermatologist tested and features recyclable packaging.
What Else You Need to Know: This facial serum targets and visibly diminishes the number and intensity of dark spots and discolorations with a potent clarifying complex of activated C, white birch, and peony extracts. The formula penetrates skin’s surface to help correct the appearance of dark spots and even skin tone. Activated C is a highly stable derivative of vitamin C. This breakthrough ingredient works in three ways:
- Prevents melanin clusters from forming.
- Decreases melanin formation.
- Deters the transfer of melanin to the skin’s surface.
With daily, continuous use, skin is visibly brighter, more even, and radiant with a visible improvement in clarity.
Clinical Results: In a 12-week dermatologist-led clinical study using the product:
- 27% reduction in post-acne marks was measured
- 49% reduction in hyperpigmentation was measured
- 39% reduction in dark spots color was measured
-Cleanse skin thoroughly prior to application with Clearly Corrective Brightening and Exfoliating Daily Cleanser (sold separately) to gently exfoliate skin.
