What is tranexamic acid?

This active ingredient is created with biotechnology. Although widely known in dermatology, it’s relatively new to skincare. Multiple clinical studies conclude that tranexamic acid is one of the most effective molecules for addressing dark spots (hyperpigmentation), and uneven skin tone.

What are the skincare benefits of tranexamic acid?

Researchers have shown that tranexamic acid can help inhibit tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for melanin synthesis. It’s considered very effective in helping to diminish the appearance of all kinds of dark spots, particularly melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), irregular tone, and blemishes caused by some medications or hormonal changes. It also helps improve texture and brighten complexions.

What’s the best way to apply tranexamic acid?

This very safe acid respects all skin types. So you can use it daily, both morning and night, and at any time of year.

While it’s not photosensitizing, it’s best to pair it with sunscreen during the day for ultimate dark spot protection.

How long does it take to see the results of tranexamic acid?

Your results will depend on the type of dark spot and concentration of tranexamic acid used. Generally speaking, you’ll start seeing results after applying skincare with tranexamic acid every day for two months.

Which skin types are suitable for tranexamic acid?

Despite being an acid, this active ingredient is super respectful, making it perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skins.

At what age can I start using products with tranexamic acid?

Dark spots usually appear around the age of 40, but factors such as birth control pills, pregnancy and sun exposure can accelerate the process.
