An intensive skin brightening product, 35 ml
Light skin tone has been in vogue in Japan for many centuries. To achieve a healthily looking light, but not pale complexion is not that easy, taking into consideration the fact that pigmentation occurs for various reasons, and to eliminate its main cause, the sun, is impossible.
A skin brightener’s role is to remove pigmented spots, to correct uneven skin tone, to make freckles less visible or prevent their seasonal show up and to remove the signs of fatigue and stress.
The whole complex of components in the serum is responsible for delivering moisture to the skin, as moisturizing is also the function a skin brightening skincare must necessarily perform. If the skin lacks hydration, it starts, as in case of exposure to sunlight, to build up its superficial layer in order to increase protection and becomes dull.
The serum was created with special attention to its antioxidant complex. This skin brightening serum effectively neutralizes the adverse effects of environment and stress, supporting healthy complexion as well as resilience and elasticity.

A Skin Brightening Complex
Enriched with a large amount of vitamins, the serum essentially brightens the skin
The serum provides a broad spectrum anti-inflammatory effect which helps prevent pigmentation, lighten the already existing pigmented spots, reduce redness and correct uneven skin tone.
Ascorbyl glucoside is a stabilized form of vitamin C. It protects the skin from free radicals and other negative effects of irradiation as well as inhibits tyrosinase that catalyzes the synthesis of melanin. The component also reduces pigmented spots and corrects uneven skin tone.
Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is a liposomal form of vitamin C. It protects vitamins A, E and other antioxidants in the serum from oxidation, protects the skin from ultraviolet and slows down the skin aging processes.
Retinyl palmitate is a stabilized form of retinol (vitamin A). In combination with vitamins E and C, the vitamin smooths and improves skin texture, prevents the formation of pigmented spots and wrinkles as it supports the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, components responsible for the support of skin’s elasticity and optimal level of hydration.
Dipotassium glycyrrhizate is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and skin-smoothing properties. In medicine, it has been successfully used to cure dermatitis. It is a highly powerful skin soothing agent that is suitable for sensitive skin prone to rashes, redness and itchiness. Relieves rashes caused by environment, including ultraviolet, as well as mechanical irritation (contact dermatitis), effectively protects the skin and prevents inflammation.
Tocopherol is a liposomal form of vitamin E. It reduces pigmentation and corrects uneven skin tone. Tocopherol is an antioxidant that boosts tissue regeneration and prevents the formation of scars (e.g., post-acne marks) and helps strengthen capillary walls. As a result, couperose disappears and “dark circles” under eyes become less visible.
Pantenol (provitamin B5) contributes to cell regeneration, stimulates epidermal metabolism, helps collagen fibers retain their shape and stops inflammatory processes in the skin. Pantenol stimulates metabolism, contributes to cell regeneration. It is a powerful moisturizing agent that makes the skin softer and supports its elasticity. It has a wound healing, moisturizing and skin evening effect and stimulates blood circulation.
Beeswax is a component used in traditional cosmetology. It helps reduce pores and wrinkles, mattifies the skin. Rich in bactericides, the component fights skin inflammation and boosts wound healing processes. Reduces pigmentation and lightens freckles.
An Antioxidant Complex
The serum is enriched with the most powerful antioxidant complex among all the items of the product line
Antioxidants in the serum effectively address many skin concerns resulting from negative environment and oxidative stress. For example, the serum slows down the age-related thinning of the skin and will help prevent its loss of resilience.
Prunus mume fruit extract restores skin’s natural transparency and glow by preventing glycation. Glycation is a protein destruction (glycoxidation) process induced by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress results in faster aging as it speeds up the synthesis of free radicals, reduces the availability and activity of antioxidant enzymes as well as induces protein glycation. Glycation end products lead to metabolic complications, cell death, loose and saggy skin. They also have a negative impact on collagen and elastin, lead to loss of skin resilience and elasticity. Prunus mume extract helps fight glycation and prevents yellowish sallow skin.
Alpenrose stem cell culture extract is obtained from the leaves of rhododendron ferrugineum found in the highlands of the Swiss Alps. The extract stimulates skin cells, protects from moisture loss, ultraviolet and other adverse effects of the environment.
Edelweiss extract is a plant-derived extract characterized by unsurpassed protective properties that allow the flower to survive in severe climatic conditions of Alpine highlands, under exposure to aggressive mountain sunshine with a high level of UV-radiation, abrupt and frequent temperature fluctuations, strong winds, snowstorms and low atmosphere pressure. A powerful antioxidant, the extract protects the skin from free-radical damage, one of the major reasons of aging.
Paeonia albiflora root extract stimulates the regeneration of epidermal cells, leading to a faster disappearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots from the skin surface. Metabolism slows down with age, and so does the renewal of skin cells. Paeonia albiflora root extract contributes to the normalization of this process.
Liposomes of soya isoflavones are plant-derived analogs of female sex hormones, estrogens. They are capable of interacting with estrogen receptors providing a complex skin rejuvenescent effect. Soya isoflavones in liposomal form penetrate the skin better. Soya isoflavones support skin’s elasticity and natural glow, prevent the reduction of collagen and hyaluronic acid production caused by low estrogen levels.
Saxifraga extract is an extract obtained from a perennial plant, an endemic Japanese species. Helps fight skin hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the transfer of melanin.
Scutellaria alpina extract is obtained from a plant found on Alpine slopes. Prevents excessive sebum production, contains a large amount of flavonoids that provide an intensive anti-inflammatory effect. The extract stimulates the synthesis of beta-endorphin that protects the skin from stress.
A Skin Moisturizing Complex
The product contains key structural components of skin’s barrier
Containing ingredients similar to natural structural components of lipid barrier of the skin, the serum essentially improves skin’s ability to protect and to regenerate itself. Moreover, skin-related components act as conductors contributing to a faster delivery of components to the cells.
Squalane is a lipid that forms part of skin’s natural barrier. Squalane is produced by sebaceous glands and remains close to skin surface supporting its barrier function. The amount of squalane our body produces declines with age, with peak production occuring at the age of 23. By the age of 50 the amount of squalane in sebum normally does not exceed 5%. Squalane is a highly compatible component, it immediately penetrates the skin, making it softer and charging with moisture. It is particularly suitable for dry, cracked and peeling skin. Also, squalane helps prevent pigmentation (including the age-related one) and skin injuries caused by exposure to ultraviolet.
Lecithin is structurally similar to phospholipids in the cell membrane, it protects the skin from dryness creating a protective film on its surface. Has a pronounced effect on the cell nutrition and toxin elimination processes. The cell membrane integrity plays a crucial role in the function of dermal and epidermal cells. The amount of phospholipids declines with age, cells lose shape while the skin loses resilience and the ability to withstand aggressive factors of the external environment. In the end, massive cell membrane damage speeds up aging, as the skin is no longer capable of withstanding the pressure caused by toxins and free radicals. Removing toxins from the cells, lecithin has a prominent effect on the cell nutrition processes. Cell division and damaged cells regeneration are not possible without lecithin. The component stimulates lipid metabolism, supports the recovery of skin’s barrier function, delivers other nutrients of the serum to the cells.
Ceramides 2 (Ceramides NG) in liposomal form are characterized by improved skin permeability and intensive moisturizing properties. Ceramides are natural structural lipids of the skin. Together with other lipids, such as fatty acids, they prevent transepidermal moisture loss. Ceramides are also necessary for the normalization of some cell functions and serve as an antibacterial and pollution-blocking barrier. The production of ceramides declines with age, and this is one of the main reasons of age-related skin dryness. Also, ceramides play a vital role in cell membranes acting as signal molecules. The level and structure of ceramides define the processes of division, growth, aging and death of skin cells.
A Skin Regenerating Complex
Innovative and improved ingredients stimulate the process of collagen synthesis in the skin
Low-molecular ingredients are responsible for regenerating and protective effects of the serum, these components keep skin hydrated over a long period of time and stimulate intracellular metabolism.
Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 is a small peptide composed of three amino acids. It activates the function of transforming growth factor (TGF-β) that stimulates the synthesis of collagen by fibroblasts.
Soya sterol. A pronounced similarity exists between phytosterols and the cell membrane components responsible for skin’s barrier function. This property allows to use soya sterol as a remedy to immediately restore lipid barrier of the skin. Phytosterols have a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect as they inhibit leucotrienes, inflammatory mediators that initiate inflammatory and allergic responses.
Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer (3D-hyaluronic acid) is a modified form of hyaluronic acid that provides a long-lasting moisturizing effect. Unlike common hyaluronic acid, molecules of which are joined up in linear chains, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer has a three-dimensional molecular structure, which is also called transverse or cross-linked intermolecular bond. In the natural course of metabolism throughout the day enzymes break molecular bonds releasing the molecules of hyaluronic acid. The molecules of a common hyaluronic acid that are connected in a linear chain are released and consumed quickly. On the opposite, the three-dimensional intermolecular structure of sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer helps hold the molecules more firmly and allows them to be released gradually. As a result, the molecules of hyaluronic acid remain whole (unsplit) on the skin surface longer, consequently they bind and retain moisture for a much longer period of time.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a low-molecular form of collagen broken down to peptides in a hydrolysis reaction. Small molecules of hydrolyzed collagen easily penetrate the skin, and the component is characterized by exceptional moisturizing properties.
