MY ALPHA ARBUTIN CHANGED COLOUR, WHY?
The colour is due the nature of the natural materials used in the formulation and are therefore prone to oxidation - we can however confirm that this does not negate the efficacy, nor the safety of the product.
WHAT ELSE CAN HELP TREAT AND PREVENT HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Ingredients such as Tranexamic Acid and Rosehip Oil are specific to targeting hyperpigmentation by focusing on lifting the specifically darkened areas whilst Vitamin C based products can brighten the overall skin tone. Retinoids/Retinol also have a beneficial impact by speeding up the regeneration of the skin so these patches pass through the surface quicker. Unprotected sun exposure can cause existing areas of hyperpigmentation to further darken and new areas of hyperpigmentation to form. We’d suggest protecting your skin with a broad spectrum SPF daily to help combat this.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.
IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?
Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.
