Squalane Cleaner:
A gentle cleanser formulated to target makeup removal while leaving skin smooth and hydrated. The formula incorporates squalane, as well as other mild, moisturizing lipophilic esters that are effective in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spread of the product. When rubbed between your palms for about 10-30 seconds, the product undergoes a significant change in texture, going from a balm-like consistency to a clear oil-like consistency. This allows the formula's emulsifying sucrose esters to trap and mix dissolved makeup and facial impurities with water for rinsing. Being non-comedogenic and soap-free, this formula is designed to be gentle enough for everyday use, without over-drying the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.

5% caffeine solution + EGCG:
Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is a water-based eye serum that primarily targets visible skin concerns around the eye area. This formula contains a high concentration of caffeine alongside epigallocatechin gallatyl glucoside (EGCG) derived from green tea leaves. This combination of active ingredients works synergistically to reduce the appearance of dark circles and visible puffiness around the contour.

Remarks:

1. The sunkenness of the eye area due to the structure of subdermal tissues like fat and bone can lead to visible shadows under the eyes. This shadow, which should not be confused with dark circles, cannot be treated with topical treatments that include this formula.

2. Fat deposits under the eye area can create permanent puffiness in this area. This type of deposit cannot be improved with topical care, including this formula.

3. Supplied in UV protective packaging as EGCG is light sensitive.

15% ethyl ascorbic acid solution:
Vitamin C is an effective and multifunctional antioxidant. It targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness and signs of aging. This ethylated form has a molecular weight close to L-ascorbic acid, offering a direct-acting L-ascorbic acid-like approach to achieving a radiant, healthy-looking complexion.

Note: This formula may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds upon application.

7% Glycolic Acid Toning Solution:
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 7% toning solution provides gentle exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity, while improving the appearance of skin texture with continued use.

This formula contains a derivative of Tasmanian pepper studied to bring comforting benefits to the skin. It's further supported by the inclusion of ginseng root and aloe vera for visible radiance and soothing benefits.

How to apply

Squalane Cleanser - 50ml:
Distribute the product in the hands. Rub together to warm the product, allowing it to melt into an oil. Massage well on dry face and rinse with lukewarm water.

Caffeine 5% + EGCG solution - 30ml:
Apply a small amount to the eye area morning and evening.

15% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid Solution - 30ml:
Apply a few drops to the face morning and evening. Avoid eye area and contact with eyes. Use sunscreen during the day.

Toning solution with glycolic acid 7% - 240 ml:
Do not use more than once a day, ideally in the evening. After cleansing, soak a cotton pad in the formula and wipe over face and neck. Do not use on sensitive, peeling or weakened skin. Avoid eye area and contact with eyes. Do not rinse. Follow up with additional skincare products as needed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and in particular the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

Note: The Bright Set consists of four individual products containing ingredients that work to brighten the skin. We recommend using Glycolic Acid Toning Solution 7% and Ethyl Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution in separate regimens.
