Top Ingredients in a Skin Lightening Serum

Summer is over and even if you’ve been careful about protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, you may be noticing dark spots on your skin. Don’t accept this as the norm. Now is a great time to add a serum into your skincare routine to combat hyperpigmentation and brighten your skin.

Serums offer a larger, more potent dose of active ingredients than moisturizers or cleansers can and are perfect to protect, hydrate and nourish your skin. This thin-viscosity product delivers active ingredients to the skin fast so it is used after cleansing and applied before your moisturizer. Because serums contain larger amounts of active molecules to penetrate the skin quickly and have a higher concentration of ingredients, results are visible faster.

Getting rid of sun spots is simple with ILLUMINATE Skin Brightening  Serum. With its content of retinaldehyde - the most potent form of Vitamin A without prescription - ILLUMINATE works up to 11X faster than retinol.

Its combination of natural skin lightening ingredients, mitigated by 1000MG content of CBD, allows it to be safe and pleasant for all skin types and tones.

ILLUMINATE uses only natural brightening agents like Turmeric Root and Kojic Acid to brighten your skin and provide a lift for your mood and memory. Fight dullness with ILLUMINATE, which speeds up cell turnover as well as reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Stressed skin is soothed as irritation and inflammation are visibly reduced.

How does this skin brightening serum DO SO MUCH?

In the frequent words of millennials, "There's levels to this." And it holds true for ingredients in skin care.

ILLUMINATE skin brightening serum contains a Vitamin A, commonly known as retinol. But there are levels of retinol. The type of retinol ILLUMINATE contains - retinaldehyde - is the last step before retinoic acid, which is only available by prescription.

Retinaldehyde is responsible for increasing cellular turnover, boosting collagen production, minimizing hyperpigmentation and diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It works up to 11X faster than the average retinol you may find in serums. 

Skin Brightening with Turmeric, Kojic Acid & LICORICE ROOT

ILLUMINATE Serum also contains curcuma longa root extract, also known as turmeric, which has been reported to brighten skin in as few as three weeks.

Paired with melatonin-blockers, Kojic Acid and Licorice Root, this powerful trio works collaboratively to clear and prevent hyperpigmentation such as sun spots.

Licorice Root is often used as a natural skin lightening alternative to chemical hydroquinone due to its powerful results and ability to be safely used by all skin types and tones. 


How do you get powerful star ingredients to play nicely together on different skin types and tones?

With lots of research, testing and a secret weapon - Broad Spectrum CBD+!

Cannabidoil (CBD) is a powerful anti-inflammatory that interacts with our endocannabinoid system to mitigate its response to stressors, including powerful ingredients that have the potential to arouse a reaction.

Containing no psychoactive THC, Broad Spectrum CBD+ also contains moderate concentrations of CBG, which shines for its ability to help cells retain moisture

MOOD products have the highest concentration of Broad Spectrum CBD on the market, making it highly effective for all skin types and tones.
