Medik8 reveal peptide-based pigmentation serum
Cosmeceutical skincare brand, Medik8, has launched Oxy-R Peptides, a new brightening peptide solution that tackles pigmentation and brightens the complexion.
This new serum treats visible age spots, areas of hyperpigmentation, post-inflammatory pigmentation and uneven skin tone thanks to key ingredient Oxyresveratrol, derived from the Mulberry plant family. This antioxidant has potent brightening and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its ability to block the function of tyrosinase, the main enzyme responsible for the production of melanin.
In addition, Medik8 Oxy-R Peptides also contains Tetrapeptide-30, a peptide that interrupts the pathways that lead to discolourations and uneven skin tone, along with Acetyl Glycyl Beta-Alanine that stops the transport of melanin to the skin cells, where the overproduction of pigment becomes visible on the skin.
In order for the product's 1% oxyresveratrol to remain stable Medik8 Oxy-R is packaged in a patented preservation system in the lid until it is plunged into the rest of the formula using Click-Activated packaging on first use. In addition, the formula is split into two 10ml bottles to ensure maximum freshness throughout use.
Medik8 Oxy-R Peptides is available from Skinbrands.
