A botanically-based, hydroquinone-free lightening gel for hyperpigmented skin. This advanced lightening formula uses a blend of botanicals to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It improves overall skin health while evening the skin's tone, resulting in a clearer and more luminous complexion. Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic botanicals are blended into a hyaluronic acid base to reduce redness and irritation while deeply hydrating the skin, resulting in a calm, comfortable finish. May be used to reduce erythema, as well as a maintenance product following cosmetic procedures.
