This skin lightening cream contains 4-n-butylresorcinol 0.1%, a tyrosinase inhibitor (TI), which works by blocking one of the pathways of tyrosinase in the skin. Tyrosinase is the key regulator of melanin production that causes pigmentation. This TI is safe for long term application, is non-irritating and is non-cytotoxic unlike other TI’s on the market. Also contains Niacinamide 5% which helps to protect the skin barrier and promote a more even tone.
Directions: Apply 2-3 pumps to face neck and other areas of pigmentation concern in the morning following Vitamin C Morning Serum Lite. May also be used following serum at night for enhanced results. May take several weeks to months to see improvements. Initially there may be some areas of pigmentation that appear worse, possibly due to skin brightening around these areas and pigmented spots taking more time to respond. This should diminish over time.
