EVEN TONE – ANTI-SPOT
Reducing the appearance of pigmentation spots and puffiness, this booster evens the skin tone. It is the key that unlocks all doors leading to the swift exit of hyper-pigmentation, one of the most complex skincare concerns. It contains Alpha Arbutin, a more powerful version of classic arbutin used in cosmetology, Like the other Age Intelligence Boosters, it has been formulated to mix into anything we can call skincare.

Our formulations will be updated from time to time as part of our commitment to innovation, or due to regulatory changes. As such, the ingredient list above may vary from that on the box depending on time and region of purchase.
Evenness Booster can be applied am and/or pm as needed, mixed in the palm of the hand with the Recovery Serum to maximize results, or directly in your usual cream for a boost. 2-3 drops are enough, more can be used if needed. Just as is the case with vitamin C, the use of adapted UV protection during the day is imperative to better protect the skin (and the alpha-arbutin!).
ALPHA-ARBUTIN: Arbutin is a glycoside phyto-chemical extracted from bearberries, among many other medicinal plants that also contain it. Applied topically, it strongly inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the formation of melanin. Alpha-Arbutin is a much more complex engineered form of arbutin, obtained from the cross linking of the glycoside with one hydroxyl molecule (= oxygen + hydrogen) to form a faster penetrating ingredient. A fast penetration is key for a deep impact on skin, before arbutin is degraded by skin’s own enzymes, and loses power.
Alpha Arbutin, a more powerful version of classic arbutin used in cosmetology, contributes to a reduction in the appearance of age-related spots. We use it at the highest possible concentration of 2% as opposed to the standard concentration of less than 1%.
