Available from SkinCeuticals is Discoloration Defense, a high-potency treatment serum that prevents and corrects all types of discoloration, including stubborn brown patches.

Boasting a potent combination of key ingredients, 3% tranexamic acid, 5% niacinimide, 1% kojic acid, and 5% HEPES (a sulfonic acid), the serum provides a measurable reduction in visible and stubborn pigmentation for a revitalized and even complexion, with refined texture and clarity.

These ingredients work together to help break up existing melanin clusters, inhibit the formation of melanocytes and deactivate inflammatory mediators, which has been newly established as a key factor in pigmentation.

· Tranexamic Acid – works to correct and prevent by reducing the likelihood recurrence after treatment of pigmentation
· Niacinamide – a form of Vitamin B3 that is frequently used with pigmentation issues
· Hepes – an enzyme activator that also has hydrating qualities
· Kojic Acid – commonly used to brighten skin and to help reduce the amount of melanin produced
