About

Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is made with two of the most well-known brightening agents in skincare. Its water-free formula combines direct vitamin C and a high concentration of alpha arbutin to visibly improve pigmentation and balance uneven skin tone. With advanced antioxidant properties, it protects the skin from the visual effects of damage caused by environmental stressors, helping to maintain a more radiant complexion.

Note: Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin are less stable in formulations that contain water and use of them combined in formulations containing water is highly discouraged. This formulation is a water-free, stable solution, and may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free of oil.
