Glowy skin is all the rage these days, but dark spots, sun damage and pigmentation can really rain on that parade. Luckily, achieving beautifully radiant and even-toned skin is no longer just a figment of your imaginative daydreams. We took a deep dive into the science books to get this one just right, not only so it’s creamy and feels dreamy, but also to make sure it does the hard yards to diminish dark spots, peace out pigmentation, even out skin tone and bring back that brightness.

It's easy to chuck a few nice-sounding ingredients in a bottle and call it a serum, but we’re nothing less than obsessed with making sure our products do exactly what they say. There’s nothing worse than people (and products) that do all the talky-talky but none of the walky-walky. To make this serum superb and leave a lasting impression on your skin (and heart), we put a few heavy hitters on the job. As always, we only use credible ingredients in their maximum clinical concentrations.

First up, we use a specialised form of Vitamin C that scientists call Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (AT), but we call it a triple threat. First off, it’s extra stable so it’s fresh and effective when it meets your skin – very important! Unstable forms can oxidise quickly rendering its good properties null and void, making it a waste of your hard-earned MOO-lah. AT is also oil-soluble which means it can penetrate deeper and more effectively into the skin. And finally, it’s known to be less irritating than other forms out there. Alright C, you big show off. Being an acclaimed antioxidant, not only does it lighten skin discolouration, but it also fights free radicals that cause skin ageing. AT loves skin so much that it’s been shown to stay in cells 40 to 80 times longer than other forms of Vitamin C and have 4 times the effect. But there is one downside to this seemingly perfect child: it’s very expensive. While we could downgrade and cut our costs, we think the difference it makes is worth every pretty penny.

We also use a unique, innovative and naturally derived ingredient called Sepiwhite that reports in for double duty. It works to inhibit melanin production in the skin to reduce the creation of future age spots. OK, we’re listening. It’s also proven to lighten dark spots and pigmentation meaning this 2-for-1 deal is not only a proactive preventative measure, but also deals with damage already done to create a coveted complexion. And finally, we had to invite our favourite AHA to join the show. Lactic Acid removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin through enzymatic exfoliation leaving behind a fresher, brighter, more radiant complexion. It also pitches in to help fade dark spots and smooth out skin tone, another double whammy. Dark spots don’t stand a chance. Since we don’t use any harsh bleaching ingredients, and because good things take time, you’ll see your dark spots lighten and your skin brighten with consistent use over time. While using any brightening products, avoid sun exposure, or wear a hat and sunscreen when spending time outdoors.
