Why is this different?

How Does it Work on the Skin?

  • 5% Niacinamide prevents the transfer of melanosomes,thereby preventing and fading dark spots.
  • 1% Kojic acid, acts as a tyrosinase inhibitor and prevents melanin (pigment) from being formed.
  • 5% Vitamin C protects the skin from free radicals and brightens the skin by interacting with copper ions that are an essential part of the pigmentation process. 
  • Added Vitamin E is a strong anti-oxidant and combats free radicals to keep skin young and healthy

How to use?

  • Use a pea size amount of niacinamide cream, gently massage until the product is absorbed into the skin.
  • Niacinamide cream can be used both morning and night. Follow up with SPF during the day time.
  • Use with Deconstruct Vitamin C/ Clearing serum for best brightening results.
