An even skin tone is one of the defining characteristics of optimal skin health. Unfortunately, age, UV exposure, diet and disease can result in hyper-pigmentation issues including freckles and age spots.
But you can bring out your healthy glow with the help of our new SB-7 Skin Brightener, a non-comedogenic, oil-free serum that uses seven natural skin brighteners!
Hyperpigmentation is caused by increased melanin, which may be the result of either:
Hyperplasia, the increase in number, of melanocytes and/or melanosomes is typically a response to hormonal changes, UV radiation, environmental irritation or disease.
Research has identified six different mechanisms by which hyperpigmentation can be slowed, stopped or corrected:
Mechanisms 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been found to be unsafe and potentially toxic, perhaps because one of the substances used to incite those mechanisms—hydroquinone—is a suspected carcinogen. The USFDA ruled it unsafe for OTC use in 1996 and has been banned by all European Union countries.
Skin brightening by interfering with the production of tyrosine and/or the conversion of tyrosine to melanin is safe and effective with proper sun protection. Our SB-7 Skin Brightener contains seven natural active ingredients that safely even skin tone:
Vitamin C is also added for additional anti-oxidant protection.
SB-7 Skin Brightener can be used as a spot treatment or all-over facial treatment to even out skin tone. One or two pumps is sufficient to cover the entire face after cleansing. This formula is most effective when able to penetrate deeply. Because of the skin-opening effects of glycolic acid, we recommend using a glycolic base, like our glycolic acid peel.
Warm temperatures degrade the active ingredients of SB-7 Skin Brightener, so store this product in a cool place.
