Health Benefits at a Glance:
Nonapeptide-1 Rumex occidentalis and alpha-arbutin found in Skin Tone Equalizer can help you maintain a youthful look by reducing a dull skin complexion and yellowish appearance while supporting evenness of your skin tone as well as its lightness and brightness.
Why it Works:
Few things can cause loss of youthful-looking skin like the appearance of spots and dark patches, which can occur naturally when your body is aging. Nonapeptide-1 and Rumex occidentalis and alpha-arbutin found in Skin Tone Equalizer can, however, counter the look of aging skin [1-5].
It uses the compounds (Nonapeptide-1 and Rumex occidentalis, and alpha-arbutin) to support inhibition of age spot color intensity and to support decreasing the appearance of dark spots, age spots, and uneven pigmentation. Scientific evidence shows that these three compounds can inhibit melanin output in order to manage common pigmentation which can lead to age spots and dark patches [1-5]. Skin Tone Equalizer is directly delivered onto your skin with a unique topical applicator for support of an appearance of a clear, even, younger-looking skin complexion.
