White Balance Click is the latest formula from the long-term Medik8 anti-pigmentation research program. Medik8 researchers have scoured the literature and identified 7 key ‘routes’ to whitening and the results of this research have been presented at The Royal College of Physicians building in London. Pigmentation is the general scientific term for dark spots, age spots, freckles, blotchiness, sun damage, uneven skin tone and melasma.
Applied regularly, this unique brightening serum has been shown to improve the appearance of overall skin tone with an array of several proven ingredients in a very carefully researched formula. This is our best ever brightening serum. Kojic acid, which is a key ingredient in the formula, is inherently unstable when dissolved in water. Therefore Medik8 scientists use the innovative “click” packaging system to keep the kojic acid in powder form until its ready-to-use, by storing it in a special chamber inside the product lid.
After purchase, the user simply clicks the lids to release the powder and activate the product by shaking. In addition, the formula contains a patent-pending stabilising complex (developed by Medik8 scientists) to keep the dissolved kojic acid stable for 30 days, even after the click. With kojic acid now limited to 1% in cosmetics, this clever formula means maximum ‘bang-for-your-buck’. Hydroquinone-free formula.
Before the first application, click to release Kojic acid into the solution. Then, remove the lid and change to dropper head. After that, shake for 30 seconds to blend the Kojic acid with the serum.
