What are age spots?
Age spots are flat brown, grey, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas, like the backs of the hands and the face. Age spots typically happen due to excess production of melanin or skin pigment. Though it can be found in young adults, it often appears on matured skin. Age spots range from light brown to black. The spots have the same texture as the rest of the skin. They typically appear in sun-exposed areas. Age spots can vary from the size of a very small freckle to an inch in diameter. Age spots are typically round or oval, with very defined edges. It is a sign of skin ageing. Though we can cover them with make-up, it would be better to reduce and prevent their appearance.
Which are the known cosmetic ingredients that can be used against age spots?
The most frequently used ingredients known to fight against age spots are salicylic acid, liquorice, Vitamin C, niacinamide and the so-called AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids, most frequently glycolic acid). These ingredients are also used for exfoliation and removing dead skin cells. Several of Klara’s skincare products contain Vitamin C, Niacinamide (Klara’s powerful serum, Klara’s micellar water) that may contribute to the brightening effect of the skin.
How does Klara’s Green Skinbright Serum work?
Klara’s Green Skinbright Serum is an oil-based gentle botanical formula that fights against age spots without exfoliation and harsh chemicals. Klara’s serum contains several cold-pressed plant oils with active components that reduce melanin production. These are Rosehip Oil (probably due to its high vitamin C contents), Argan oil, Hempseed oil and Olive oil, which have anti-ageing effects due to phytochemicals and anti-oxidants. In addition to the natural cold-pressed plant oils, the formula contains 0.1% dimethyl methoxy chromanyl palmitate that induces a significant lightening effect on the skin while fighting against photoaging. Based on clinical studies, it acts by inhibiting tyrosinase activity. It exhibits a better depigmenting effect than Kojic Acid and Arbutin and is similar to hydroquinone. It does not affect melanocyte growth and has no side effects.
The formula is suggested for mature skin with age spots or freckles. The results can be observed after 6 to 8 weeks of regular application twice a day.
