  • 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): a water-soluble vitamin that has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin discoloration
  • 5% HEPES: a synthetically-derived acid that activates natural enzymes in skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation

Key Benefits:

  • Features a synergistic blend of anti-discoloration ingredients to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, improve brightness, and minimize the reoccurrence of discoloration (with continued use)
  • 60% average improvement in the appearance of stubborn brown patches

  • Ideal at-home complement to professional skin discoloration treatments, such as chemical peels or non-ablative laser; always consult with a physician for individual regimen recommendations

Clinical Studies:

In a 12-week clinical study*, Discoloration Defense significantly improved the appearance of key skin discoloration markers on Fitzpatrick I-IV skin tones:

  • 60% average improvement in the appearance of stubborn brown patches
  • 59% average improvement in the appearance of skin discoloration
  • 81% average improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks
  • 59% average improvement in the appearance of even skin tone

In a 12-week study** on deeper skin tones (Fitzpatrick V-VI), twice-daily application of Discoloration Defense demonstrated a statistically-significant improvement in the appearance of discoloration, post-inflammatory discoloration, and even skin tone:

  • 33% reduction in hyperpigmentation at 12 weeks
  • 34% reduction in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation at 12 weeks

*A 12-week, single-center, clinical study was conducted on 50 females, ages 25 to 60, Fitzpatrick I-IV, with mild-to-moderate facial skin discoloration, including stubborn dark spots, post-acne marks and uneven skin tone. Discoloration Defense was applied to the face twice a day in conjunction with a sunscreen. Efficacy and tolerability evaluations were conducted at baseline and at weeks 2, 4, 8, and 12.

**A 12-week, single-center, clinical study was conducted on 51 female subjects, Fitzpatrick V-VI, with visible signs of skin discoloration/hyperpigmentation, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and melasma. Discoloration Defense was applied to the face twice a day in conjunction with a sunscreen. Efficacy and tolerability evaluations were conducted at baseline and at weeks 2, 4, 8, and 12.

How to use: Twice daily, apply three to five drops to face. For morning use, apply after an antioxidant and follow with a broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen. Limit sun exposure while using this product; do not use on irritated or broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
