4-Hexylresorcinol Lightening Gel
Dark spots and pigmentation are visible signs of aging skin and photodamage.
4-Hexylresorcinol is an organic compound, naturally derived from the bran factions of rye and other cereals that improve the appearance of dark spots and encourage cellular renewal. This formula also uses Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which exhibits a synergistic relationship with Hexylresorcinol for outstanding results in treating visible signs of aging including hyperpigmentation and glycation. For years, Hydroquinone was the heavy hitter in skin lightening ingredients, providing useful benefits, but with many negative side effects. This 4-Hexylresorcinol Lightening Gel minimizes photosensitivity and is non-cytotoxic. It can be used long-term without the need to cycle off. It also pairs nicely with Vitamin C products such as Mega CBE & Ferulic Super Serum or Antioxidant Rich Calming Serum for unsurpassed protection and skin brightening and firming results.

HOW IT WORKS
4-Hexylrescorcinol is the most studied and well-known Alkylresorcinol, with history of use in the food and pharmaceutical industries for over 80 years. It is often used for the safe and effective anti-browning agent for shrimp and fresh cut fruits.
Delivered in a moisturizing and skin smoothing gel, this innovative product is safe to use long-term, anti-inflammatory and non- photosensitizing. Studies have shown it to be more effective than Hydroquinone 4% in treating pigmentation. It is also a wonderful anti- aging treatment as it boosts glutathione and minimizes glycation.
Resorcinol encourages cellular turnover so slight shedding may occur. Pair with Ceramide 3 Lipid Replenisher or Vitamin B3 Stay Ageless Repair Serum if needed for additional moisturization.
Dispense 4-5 pumps into hands and apply to face and neck 3-4 times per week at nighttime. May also be used as a spot treatment for brown spots on the body such as chest and hands. For optimal results pair with Vitamin C and SPF daily.
