C-12 Pure Bright Serum helps balance pigmentation by using a combination of rice-derived phytic acid, zinc glycinate, algae and peptides, such as oligopeptide-51 and oligopeptide-34, which fight melanin formation.

To shield skin from UV rays, Pure Light SPF50 is an advanced daytime treatment moisturizer that uses oleosome technology. Oleosomes are moisture-rich spheres derived from safflower seeds that allow for more SPF protection while using fewer chemical sunscreens, therefore making sensitive skin less prone to negative reactions.

Pure Night helps control melanin formation, restore skin’s luminosity and
maximize the benefits of the PowerBright TRx trio. The overnight treatment contains a blend of oligopeptide-34 and skin brightening vitamin C, as well as cranberry and raspberry seed oils to hydrate skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines from dehydration. Together, the trio of products works to combat hyperpigmentation
“safely and synergistically without compromising skin health,” King says.
