WHY IS TRANEXAMIC ACID GOOD FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Tranexamic Acid is a powerful amino acid that helps to decrease the appearance of dark, uneven patches and dark spots. This anti-inflammatory active helps to block the transfer of pigment (known as "melanin") from the skin cells into the epidermis (the outer most layer on skin) whilst also slowing down the over-production of the melanin.
IS TRANEXAMIC ACID GOOD FOR ACNE?
Although the ingredient doesn’t treat acne, it is useful for post acne concerns such as hyperpigmentation. It also includes Acai Berry and 2% Vitamin C. Not only do these help to brighten complexion, as antioxidants they protect the skin from environmental stressors which can often aggravate acne-prone skin.
HOW DOES TRANEXAMIC ACID WORK FOR ACNE SCARS?
Tranexamic acid targets uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, meaning it’s ideal for improving the appearance of acne scars.
CAN I USE TRANEXAMIC ACID AND NIACINAMIDE TOGETHER?
Yes, it is suitable to layer with Niacinamide and all other ingredients in your AM or PM skincare routine. To get the best out of Tranexamic Acid in your usual routine, apply as the last product. If you wish to use a moisturizer, we suggest waiting until Tranexamic Acid has completely absorbed. Top tip! Do your routine and wait 30 mins. If in the evening use moisturizer right before bed!

WHAT'S THE % OF TRANEXAMIC ACID?
There's 2% Tranexamic Acid in the formula.
HOW LONG DOES TRANEXAMIC AICD TAKE TO WORK ON HYPERPIGMENTATION?
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.
HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM MANDELIC ACID TREATMENT?
Mandelic Acid is an AHA so it works to gently exfoliate and speed up the cell turnover rate in the area you are targeting making it a better option for post inflammation marks such as acne scars. Tranexamic is an amino acid so it helps to treat UV induced marks and reduce pigmentation and dark spots.
