Tranexamic Acid: A Key Ingredient in Treating Hyperpigmentation

Tranexamic Acid: A Key Ingredient in Treating Hyperpigmentation

Tranexamic Acid is an effective ingredient that is becoming more popular in skincare products. While ingredients such as Vitamin C and Niacinamide are commonly known to treat hyperpigmentation, Tranexamic Acid has several benefits, including treating melasma, hyperpigmentation, and other skin discoloration.

What Is Tranexamic Acid and What Are Its Benefits?

Tranexamic Acid (also known as TXA) comes from the amino acid lysine and, when applied topically, can alter the way cells produce melanin (a substance in the body that produces skin color). Unlike ingredients such as hydroquinone or retinol, TXA is safe for all skin types and skin tones and doesn't have the negative side effects that harsher ingredients have. 

TXA has been shown to be effective in treating acquired dark spots and sun spots as well as melasma, a skin condition that causes brown or dark hyperpigmented patches on the face. It also can help improve post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is stubborn discoloration caused by damage to the skin such as acne, and sun-related dark spots/sun spots.

TXA has excellent anti-inflammatory benefits and can help reduce redness in skin also from acne breakouts and even rosacea.
