Tranexamic acid provides a powerful and specific anti-inflammatory action, inhibiting the tyrosinase synthesis in melanocytes. At the same time, blocks the transfer of pigment from melanocytes to keratinocytes in the epidermis. Tranexamic acid can also calm the skin and restore its barrier. By accumulating in the corneal layer of the epidermis as it strengthens keratin connections and the skin’s resistance to damage.

• Blocks the production of melanin in the cells.
• Prevents melanin from accumulating locally.
• Dissolves the already present melanin.
