ageless - brightening cream
a natural, night time lightening cream to correct photo-damage and hyper-pigmentation. traditionally, whitening agents have used hydroquinone and kojic acid which have been shown to be cytotoxic. alternately, botanical extracts of mulberry or licorice root contain unstable tyrosinase inhibiting flavinoids, causing tyrosine to hyper-pigment (oxidize and darken skin). we've sourced newer botanicals to eliminate anti-tyrosinase activity, like sophora flavescens (from a tree in china) and kiwi root (actinidia chinesis), it targets specific pigmentation problems and have produced 94% equivalent effectiveness of kojic acid (without toxicity). this formula features 5 natural oils of avocado, grapeseed, sweet almond, olive and sunflower plus shea and mango butters, aloe, vitamin E and cucumber extracts.
