Deliver a third punch of skin-brightening ingredients to skin while delivering deep hydration from aloe and skin softening moisture from avocado oil. This organic serum contains a hefty dose of arbutin, a melanin-inhibitor extracted from the bearberry plant. This safe and effective skin brightener regulates melanin production; melanin is the pigment in our skin that overproduces during stress, UV overexposure, or hormonal change. You don’t want to stop melanin production altogether and cause a further imbalance in pigmentation, so using a carefully formulated natural skin brightening serum is important!

Your Facial Moisturizer: Green Tea EGCG Concentrate Cream
Caffeine naturally brightens and awakens skin, thanks to its potent antioxidant properties. This alkaloid can protect cells against that UV radiation, a main cause of melasma. Caffeine from both yerba mate and green tea also slows the photoaging process in skin, making this natural moisturizer a handy tool for not only softening skin, but preventing further skin darkening and pigmentation.
