SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense is a new generation, multi-phase, dark spot corrector serum. Using a combination of potent and proven anti-discolouration ingredients to address all types of discolouration including hyperpigmentation, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Key ingredients include a world first in topical home care, Tranexamic Acid, a synthetically-derived ingredient that treats and minimizes the reoccurrence of skin discolouration and stubborn brown patches with continued use. It helps to control pigmentation by inhibiting the release of inflammatory mediators, specifically prostaglandins and arachidonic acid, which are involved in melanogenesis. It works by addressing the appearance of discolouration at its onset. Studies have also demonstrated its ability to address hard-to-treat forms of discolouration including post-acne marks and stubborn brown patches. Kojic Acid, naturally produced by certain fungi, helps to improve skin brightness. Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin found naturally in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. It has been shown to help reduce the appearance of skin discolouration. HEPES is a synthetically-derived acid that activates natural enzymes in the skin to help break the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface for even exfoliation. Paraben-free. Fragrance-free. Silicone-free. Gluten-free. Hydroquinone-free.
Dr Webster’s Recommendation: This layerable, daily-use serum targets visible discolouration and helps to brighten skin. Clinical trials show some exciting results for those people with stubborn pigmentation. It is an ideal home-care product to treat these conditions and for the best results, it should be used together with a Vitamin C serum such as SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF or SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. It is also very important to be meticulous about using a high factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect and prevent UV-induced skin pigmentation.
