My Pigment Fading Pads utilize botanical pigment lightening ingredients to soften the appearance of uneven skin color.

Does your complexion suffer from uneven skin pigment?

My Pigment Fading Pads add a missing treatment piece to most skin care routines by turning down melanin production to fight hyperpigmentation. This allows your skin to regain an even skin color. 

Here’s why my Pigment Fading Pads work so well to fight skin pigment problems:

My pads contain pharmaceutically pure botanical actives known to fight excess melanin, including arbutin, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, and bearberry. I combine these with antioxidants, kojic acid and vitamin C that also help reduce the presence of skin melanin. This allows skin hyperpigmentation to fade.

What is the best way to get rid of hyperpigmentation on your skin?

Uneven skin pigment problems are stubborn. Fighting skin pigment problems requires a skin care routine that tackles excess pigment from every available angle.

  • Botanical ingredients such as arbutin and Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract reduce melanin pigment synthesis and distribution by mechanisms such as inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase in your melanocyte cells that make pigment. Vitamin C also works this way. Combined with antioxidants and kojic acid, this multi-tasking formulation targets the molecular mechanisms leading to excess skin pigment production. 
  • Retinol (and other retinoids such as tretinoin), and glycolic acid reduce pigment production using other methods. They also help your skin to clear excess pigment and even your skin color.
  • Physical exfoliation helps to scrub away excess pigment held in dead skin cells.
  • Broad spectrum mineral zinc oxide sunscreen that includes iron oxide as an ingredient helps reduce new melanin production due to UV and visible light. 

Creating a skin care routine that uses more than one of these mechanisms will get even better results for stubborn skin pigment problems. That's why I created my Ultimate Sun Damage and Pigment Repair Kit. My Pigment Fading Pads are an important part of a powerful Complete Skin Care Routine that fights uneven pigment skin problems. Add my Pigment Fading Pads to your skin care routine or consider letting me take the guess work out of fighting uneven skin pigment problems with my Ultimate Sun Damage and Pigment Repair Kit.  

For best results, combine the botanical skin lighteners in these pads into a skin care routine that includes other skin lightening products such retinol, glycolic acid and/or vitamin C.

Twice a day, cleanse your skin and towel dry. Use one Pigment Fading Pad and swab the area of skin where you want to fight uneven skin pigment problems. Allow the moisture to air dry then continue layering your other correcting skin care products, moisturizer and mineral zinc oxide sunscreen.
