KEY INGREDIENTS

3% TRANEXAMIC ACID

This synthetically-derived ingredient minimizes the recurrence of skin discoloration 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 discoloration.

5% SULFONIC ACID (HEPES)

This synthetically-derived acid activates natural enzymes in skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation.
