Tranexamic Acid Whitening Serum

Tranexamic Acid Whitening Essence repairs discolouration of the skin caused by UV damage, acne, pregnancy etc. The active ingredients penetrate into the skin to inhibit tyrosinase activity (essential for melanin production) by 90%, thereby removing or reducing dark spots, acne marks, freckles, chloasma, and age spots. It lightens and evens the skin tone, creating beautiful glowing skin.

TEST: Topical 5% tranexamic acid for the treatment of melasma in Asians (a double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial – Science magazine: J Cosmet Laser Ther. 2012 Jun;14(3):150-4. doi: 10.3109/14764172.2012.685478)

Twenty-three women with bilateral epidermal melasma enrolled in a split-face trial lasting 12 weeks. Patients blindly applied topical 5% tranexamic acid and its vehicle, to the designated sides of the face twice daily in addition to the assigned sunscreen each morning. Pigmentation and erythema were measured objectively using a mexameter and Melasma Area and Severity Index (MASI), in addition top physician and patient global assessments.

Twenty-one patients completed the study. Eighteen out of twenty-three patients (78.2%) showed decrease in the melanin index on either or both sides of the face by the end of 12 weeks compared to baseline. The MASI scores were also significantly reduced on both tested sides.

How to Use: Can be used morning and evening. After cleansing the skin, apply a small amount of serum to the face, then pat and massage gently until absorbed. When using more than one type of serum, wait until one has completely absorbed before applying the next.

If using with a derma roller, simply apply essence (as directed above) after dermarolling. Dermarolling increases the absorption of products through the skin by up to 4,000%. This means that any product applied to the skin straight after a derma roller treatment will penetrate into the skin much more deeply than usual, and therefore has the potential to be significantly more effective. However, it also means that only natural products should be used post-treatment, to avoid potential toxicity. Our Plant Essence serums contain powerful active ingredients in high concentrations, extracted from natural plants. Using one of our serums after dermarolling is a great way to boost the effects of a treatment. They can also be used between treatments to speed up results.
