The Unitone TXA + Vit C Mask takes the restorative powers of 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid and combines it with the skin-brightening effects of Tranexamic acid, leaving you with skin that looks more even, younger and tauter.

Fact: Hydroquinone is banned in the European skin care as a carcinogenic and dangerous. The ingredient is being considered for a similar ban in the USA. In clinical studies Tranexamic acid produces similar or better brightening results without the risks and irritation. Ditch Hydroquinone today for this superior and safer formula.
This powerful mask won’t just even out discoloration in your skin and brighten dark spots. It will also reduce redness and irritation and actively counteract the effects of aging. It does this by combining powerful ingredients together in a synergistic formula. Read on to learn more about how these ingredients support and complement each other.
Tranexamic acid is the latest beauty discovery for combating discoloration in the skin resulting from hormonal imbalance, of post-inflammatory origin or as a result of sun exposure. It also counteracts photo-aging while reducing redness, swelling, and inflammation. Tranexamic acid is powerful on its own, but we pair it with Vitamin C to further enhance its properties.
Vitamin C, in the novel amphiphilic form of 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid, neutralizes free radicals by penetrating deep below the skin’s surface. Free radicals damage the skin’s protein and lipid structures, and they are one of the main culprits behind common signs of aging. Our Vitamin C also seals capillaries, stimulates collagen production, and contributes to the fight against discoloration. It brightens skin by inhibiting tyrosinase, a key component in causing unsightly dark spots. Not all Vitamin C is created equal and many forms are simply not stable. Our formulation of Vitamin C (3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid) has a stable molecule and enhanced transport through skin. Lastly, Vitamin C stimulates collagen production for firmer, more elastic skin.
Finally, the licorice root supports the effects of the other ingredients by brightening the skin, fading dark spots, and further soothing any irritants on the body, making this formula exceptionally suited for those with sensitive skin. It’s also effective at regulating oil production.
Skin Discoloration During Pregnancy: Due to hormonal changes, many women experience flare up of facial skin discoloration during their pregnancy. It is often referred to as a “pregnancy mask”. We highly recommend using Unitone TXA + Vit C line of products to combat these hormonal discolorations. Tranexamic acid is considered Category B during pregnancy, meaning there are no known risks. On the other hand, the FDA has designated Hydroquinone a pregnancy category C substance. The reproductive studies done on animals have shown to have adverse side effects on the fetus, but that there is a lack of well controlled studies in the human population, thus it is not recommended to use that ingredient during pregnancy.
Cleanse and tone the skin, then apply the Unitone TXA + Vit C Mask, covering the entire face. Rinse off the mask after 20-30 minutes. For a finishing touch, apply the Unitone TXA + Vit C Cream afterward. Recommended for weekly use.
Can be used before or after dermo-aesthetic treatments without causing irritation, even on sensitive skin.
Wear sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days.
