Our Skin Penetrating Brightening Serum, as the name reflects, has a phenomenal penetration mechanism, and proper skin penetration is the key to opening up passages for other ingredients to be absorbed. This is why it is perfect in conjunction with our other products. The scar tissue that builds up over time deep within the skin compromises skin clarity and brightness. The penetration allows our often used natural skin brighteners to easily do their work for issues deep within the skin. The main purpose of this serum is to clear a pathway for other ingredients to follow in our suggested regimens. Yet it is still packed with the same compounds that we use in our other products such as kojic acid, licorice root, bilberry plant, and alpha-arbutin as well as many other ingredients found in our other products.
Licorice Root: Licorice is known for its skin brightening properties, acting as a skin lightening agent, as well as an oil controlling agent. The root extract part of the licorice plant inhibits pigmentation, halting melanin production which is the cause of hyperpigmentation, and has been shown in clinical trials to remove dark circles, darkened skin due to scars, dark spots, as well as diminishing excess oil on the skin. The root extracts are potent for red, acne-prone skin as well as for dull complexions and dehydrated skin. The root also contains a particular compound that works as a gentle sunscreen. It acts like a shield and protects the skin from UVA/ UVB rays. It leaves the skin brighter, hydrated and clearer.
Kojic Acid: Kojic acid is extracted from specific mushrooms first discovered in Japan. Its benefits on the skin and specifically skin lightening and toning have been detailed extensively. Kojic acid blocks a very important protein that the skin requires to produce melanin, the primary pigment or color of the skin. So by blocking this protein from making melanin, kojic acid puts a stop to skin pigmentation, which with consistent use can aid in skin lightening.

Alpha-Arbutin: Alpha-Arbutin is a molecule extracted from the bearberry plant that prevents the formation of melanin by inhibiting protein enzymes that stimulate pigment-producing cells. It has a non irritating, non toxic effect on the skin and can help with conditions such as freckles, liver spots and hyperpigmented areas of the skin and reduces the degree of pigmentation after UV exposure as well as containing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic Acid maintains the youthful look of the skin and prevents aging and wrinkling. When the skin is young, it contains high levels of Hyaluronic acid,and this changes with age. Over time the body loses its ability to retain water. This leads to the development of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin’s ability to once again retain water within it and remain firm which helps eliminate wrinkles and keeps the skin young.
Niacin: Niacin is an active ingredient of Vitamin B3, a vitamin that occurs naturally in many foods. Studies have shown several benefits of its usage on aging skin including improved skin barrier function, improved appearance of photoaged facial skin, like texture, hyperpigmentation, redness, fine lines and wrinkles as well as reduced oil production. It is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin. Among these benefits is the ability to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface.
Bilberry Extract – Bilberry root is an antioxidant that comes from the bilberry fruit, which is a relative of blueberries. Recently, bilberry extract has proven useful for treating hyperpigmentation and sun damage due to its chemical composition, which includes botanical hydroquinone, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
