The combination of the three products in the sk.in htp | hyperpigmentation treatment pack rely on specific active ingredients to allow maximum penetration and targeting of hyperpigmented marks:
- Stays in the skin cells through the day as it is not eliminated through the aquaporins which results in a prolonged depigmenting effect.
- Faster percutaneous absorption of ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate than other forms of vitamin C owing to its lipid solubility.
- Better stability.
- Lower irritancy.
- Significant improvement of facial hyperpigmentation.
- A reduction in trans epidermal water loss.
- It exfoliates the skin.
- It improves the penetration of certain topical ingredients: this enhances the effect of your topical skin regime.
- It has both antibacterial and antifungal effects.
- Works by disrupting cellular junctions rather than breaking or lysing (damaging or disintegrating) intercellular filaments.
- Provide a loss of the outermost layer of the skin cells followed by activation of epidermal basal cells and underlying fibroblasts (precursor cells that make collagen and elastin).
- Causes a thinning of the outer dead layer of skin without any change in the thickness of the epidermis.
- A lightening and breaking down of hyperpigmentation.
- Improving the skin’s texture with visible and tactile softening.
- Providing a youthful glow.
- Acting as an antioxidant.

Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, salicylic acid and ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate are active ingredients that may sensitise the skin with overuse. Dr. Alek Nikolic recommends that you introduce this product slowly into your skin care regime.

Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate can increase the skin’s sensitivity to sun, so remember to always apply a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher during the day.
