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.
Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous is a gentle formula that is designed to exfoliate the skin, decongest pores, smooth textural irregularities, and reduce redness and uneven skin tone. Among our other salicylic acid offerings, what sets this formula apart is its squalane-based emollient base and supporting hydrating polyglycerides. These ingredients release the salicylic acid over time and result in a more balanced distribution that helps reduce the irritation potential that can be associated with acid use making it ideal for new users.
