- Kojic Acid: is an all-natural compound derived from fungi – sort of like mushrooms. Kojic acid is completely natural. How it works: Kojic acid works to stop the production of melanin in your skin. Melanin is the substance that gives your skin its pigment, and the more you have, the darker your skin will be. Age spots, sun spots and spots related to melasma and hyperpigmentation generally contain more melanin than the surrounding healthy skin.
- Licorice: within the extract are very small trace amounts of a substance known as Glabridin. Glabridin has been found to have considerable skin lightening properties. It has been found to stop the formation of dark pigment in the skin, and importantly, still remain non toxic to regular skin cells. Along with the natural lightening power of the glabridin, licorice is also know for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent natural choice for treating hyper-pigmentation.
- Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid): Vitamin C is known to both inhibit melanin formation. Refines and Brightens skin.
- White Tea: the active compounds in white tea extract are capable of strengthening the skin’s immune system by preventing damage due to oxidation stress. Researchers discovered that after the topical application of this extract, the skin’s immune function was restored to damaged cells and the DNA harm caused by exposure to sunlight was reduced. White tea extract may also be able to delay the aging process through its high antioxidant concentration and ability to protect the skin from oxidation.
