- Do not use on irritated or broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
An abundance of everyday elements—including UV exposure, prescription drugs, and some professional treatments—can trigger production of melanin in the skin’s lowest epidermal layers. This excess melanin rises to the surface of the skin, causing frequent and visible skin discoloration. Discoloration on skin can manifest in a range of ways, including post-acne marks and stubborn brown patches on the cheekbones, forehead, and upper lip.
Discoloration Defense uses a combination of potent and proven brightening ingredients—including new tranexamic acid—to address key types of skin discoloration.
3% Tranexamic Acid
This ingredient improves the look of uneven skin tone. Optimal results occur with continued use.
1% Kojic Acid
Naturally produced by certain fungi, kojic acid helps improve skin brightness.
Also known as vitamin B3, this water-soluble vitamin is found naturally in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. This ingredient is known to help reduce the appearance of skin discoloration.
