Why it's special
Made with 3% Tranexamic Acid, which is a derivative of the amino acid lysine. It reduces the activity of melanocyte tyrosinase thereby treating melasma, UV-induced hyperpigmentation, and other post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
This formula further contains 3% Mandelic Acid (a type of AHA) which gently exfoliates & further reduces post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (like acne scars)
Contains 1% HPA (Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid), which is proven to prevent melanogenesis better than ascorbyl glucoside, kojic acid, and arbutin. It also has equivalent efficacy to hydroquinone without cytotoxicity
Our source for HPA is Radianskin, which is a high performance active developed by BASF, Germany

About this product
After cleansing and toning your face, take 2-3 drops of serum on your fingertips with the dropper. Apply it on the face by gently tapping it on the skin. With a circular motion, evenly spread the serum and allow your skin to absorb it.
When to use: PM. Start with every alternate day and after 2 weeks of usage, use it everyday.
Tranexamic acid decelerates processes that increase tyrosinase activity by interfering with plasmin activity, and in turn, indirectly inhibiting melanogenesis. Studies have shown that Tranexamic acid, when applied topically, shows results similar to Hydroquinone in reduction of hyperpigmentation
HPA (Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid)
It inhibits melanin transfer with great efficacy and prevents UVB damage. HPA is clinically proven to visibly reduce dark spots within two weeks
Mandelic Acid (3%) + Salicylic ACid (0.3%)
The combination removes the dead cells from the top of the skin, boosting the performance of Tranexamic Acid and Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid, hence accelerating the reduction of hyperpigmentation and melasma

- MTMaria Theresa S.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 4 out of 5 stars8 months agoMy skin breaks up but effectively lightens my pimple scars.
First and foremost, the online purchasing was easy, the tracking not, you need to download something to track your purchase which is kinda not necessary. 2nd, I noticed how my overall skin routine for diminishing dark marks ( salicylic acid Cleanser, exfoliant, now adding Tranexamic acid) made a huge difference, it quickened the lightening of my dark pimple scars and marks. However, it broke me out 😭. How I noticed it? I generally do not put it all over my face, I would only dab it on my pimple scar areas, so in the evening I would dab it and the next morning I have new pimples all around the area where I put the serum. It is frustrating because I loved how it worked on my dark spots. Still I used it every now and then. But I think my skin is not friendly with it. I have sensitive skin and this has been my problem. So if you wanted to try this, do so, it might work for you. It's cheaper than any other Tranexamic acid out there. I hope this helps. Thank you.

It's definitely helped with smoothing out the texture of my skin. I've been using it ever other night, along with my retinol and I love the combo.
Been using for over a month now and look forward to re-assessing at the 3 month mark.
