This powerful serum combines the effectiveness of vitamin C with the skin-brightening powers of Tranexamic acid into an innovative formulation focused on fighting skin discoloration. The formula targets discoloration resulting from hormonal imbalance, of post-inflammatory origin or as a result of sun exposure. The ingredients even out skin tone and reduce common signs of aging. This powerful concentration contains 5% of active substances: Tranexamic acid and Vitamin C (3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid). Tranexamic acid is the latest ingredient from Europe focused on skin discoloration. It is far superior to and safer than Hydroquinone, as proven by a number of clinical studies.
- Evens out skin tone and eliminates skin discoloration
- Neutralizes free radicals and counters sun damage
- Stimulates collagen to reduce fine lines
- Anti-inflammatory and healing properties
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.
Photo-damage, and the protein-damaging free radicals that can result from it, are some of the main causes of the physical signs of aging. Use this serum to fight against those symptoms, while also brightening the skin, reducing unevenness, and smoothing out pores.
This powerful concentration comes in a lightweight, eco-gel formula. Read on to learn more about how Vitamin C and Tranexamic acid work synergistically to bring you lasting skin-care improvements.
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.
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.
First, cleanse and tone your face, then massage the serum into your skin and let it absorb for a minute. For best results, follow with an application of the Unitone TXA + Vit C cream (or another moisturiser) and follow with a sunscreen for day time. Ideally make our Unitone TXA + Vit C Mask part of your weekly regimen. This serum can be used twice daily.
Note for professionals: You can apply the Unitone TXA + Vit C Serum manually or with micro needle or no-needle mesotherapies. This powerful serum can be used before or after dermo-aesthetic treatments without causing irritation, even on sensitive skin.
It is important to wear sunscreen daily even on cloudy days. Skin discoloration is a condition that has a tendency to return in those who are prone to it thus it is an ongoing effort to maintain it discoloration free.
