Pigmentation is reduced via two different biological pathways. Our patented plant stem cell extract actively helps reduce the look of dark spots and pigmentation through inhibiting the enzyme responsible for producing melanin and stopping the metabolic process that creates pigment. Secondly, vitamin B3 deters any pigment which does manage to form, from transferring to your skin’s surface in the form of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Powerful antioxidants help prevent oxidation, minimising the visible signs of ageing and delivering youthful, glowing skin. Hyaluronic acid derivatives penetrate deeply into the skin for long lasting hydration.
Scientifically proven to leave your skin unrecognisably brighter and more even you will quickly see why the 5 years of research behind these brightening benefits have led this luxurious creme to become a cult favourite.

A little reminder that when it comes to managing the appearance of hyperpigmentation it takes ongoing:
Protection - Sun exposure is the number one trigger of hyperpigmentation and the leading cause of skin ageing. The sun’s rays affect your skin even on cloudy days, so always protect with a verified SPF 30+ sunscreen such as Skin Shield everyday.
Patience - If your skin has years of sun exposure and damage, patience is needed to get results. With daily use, you should see visible results within 4 weeks.
Persistence -Continue to apply Skin Reset and protect your skin using SPF 30+.
While Emma Lewisham’s formulations are 100% naturally derived and nature identical, they recommend doing a patch test or consulting your medical practitioner before using any new skincare product, particularly if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
