Hyperpigmentation, including brown spots, freckles, and uneven skin tone, is the #1 skin care concern globally, affecting all skin types, ethnicities, and ages. It occurs when the body produces excess melanin, the natural pigment that gives color to skin, in response to UV exposure, hormonal fluctuations, or trauma such as acne.
Hyperpigmentation is the result of a three-step process. First, too much melanin is produced in the bottom of the epidermis, then, the excess melanin travels to the top of the epidermis, and finally, the melanin clusters together on the skin’s surface forming visible brown spots, freckles, and dark patches.
By optimizing ingredients to combat these three steps, SkinCeuticals introduces a powerful brightening treatment that is a smarter, healthier, and better alternative to the medical standard for the treatment of hyperpigmentation.
Proven as effective as 4% hydroquinone, SkinCeuticals Pigment Regulator is a refined and highly effective approach to full-facial skin lightening—offering a safe, well-tolerated alternative to disruptive medical applications. Pigment Regulator, which can be used daily, year-round, and long term, lightens and reduces existing hyperpigmentation, improves overall skin tone, and protects skin from future discolorations without disrupted facial appearance often attributed to harsh bleaching agents.
This patent-pending formulation combines precise concentrations of skin brighteners kojic acid and emblica along with a highly efficient exfoliating blend to systematically improve uneven skin tone. In a 12-week, double-blind, dermatologist controlled study, Pigment Regulator was evaluated against 4% hydroquinone on a variety of attributes including improvement in skin tone, hyperpigmentation, radiance, and overall skin appearance. No statistical difference was found between the pigment lighting abilities of the two products. Pigment Regulator significantly reduced hyperpigmentation for a brighter, more radiant appearance—providing powerful skin-brightening results without the potentially harmful side-effects of hydroquinone.
