What is Kojic Acid?
Kojic acid is now known as a safe alternative that is an effective and proven skin whitening agent that is reversible. It will not permanently alter your natural skin functions, like many other skin bleaching products do.
Your skin takes 4 to 8 weeks for a total cellular regeneration of renewed skin layers. This is when with the regular use of a kojic acid product your skin's production of melanin is reduced and the skin evens out due to the lack of this darkening agent. Consistent kojic acid application manages the damaged melanocyte cells to decrease the over production of melanin and that allows your skin's dark color to lighten into your evened out and natural lighter color. So your skins rejuvenation cycle is repeated over and over with less of the darkening agent "melanin" each time.
Darker and more damaged skin can expect to see improvement sooner than lighter skin tones, but all can expect improvements with continued and consistent use through several skin cell rejuvenation cycles. For best results a skin lightening regimen that consists of exfoliation of dead skin cells will enhance the results. (Use with our Vitamin C Serum).
Benefits of B3 (niacinamide)
Skin softness, suppleness and skin hydration are related to the barrier properties of the horny layer. Improvement in the appearance of ageing skin. Skin ageing is characterized by major skin changes like reduced skin elasticity, poorer structure and appearance of wrinkles. An important factor is the gradual loss of collagen and elastin fibers synthesized in fibroblasts. A recommended strategy in preventing skin ageing is to reduce collagen breakdown, while increasing fibroblasts. Studies with human fibroblasts showed that niacinamide stimulates new fibroblasts by 20% and collagen secretion by 54%.
Can help with a more even-looking skin tone. Extended exposure to sunlight is a main reason for hyper pigmentation. Melanocytes in deeper skin layers produce melanosomes that contain the pigment melanin. Clinical trials with volunteers confirmed the skin lightening activity. They applied a skin cream with 5% niacinamide for 8 weeks. Age spots around the eye and cheek were significantly reduced
Hyaluronic Acid is a polysaccharide and a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in tissues such as skin, cartilage and eyes. Providing protection to cell structures HA is the natural gel between skin cells that serves asa water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin may help hydrate skin's intercellular reservoir, raising skin's moisture level, and smoothing down age lines.
Apply after cleansing, apply dime to pea size amount to area of concern morning and or night. For best results use for a minimum of 8-12 wk. with continued use as needed. If you experience any type of redness or dryness simply use less or try applying every other day or as needed.
