Frequently Asked Questions: Skinuva Brite

What makes Skinuva Brite so unique as a skin brightening cream?

Skinuva Brite is a revolutionary product tailored to help improve hyperpigmentation, and it is a NON-HYDROQUINONE product, so it is safe and effective for long term, daily use. There has been a recent consumer demand for safe and effective products that are non-hydroquinone based, and Skinuva Brite's ingredients have been hand-picked from medical literature and our clinical data to give our consumers the most advanced and effective product for  helping to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation while being safe.  Skinuva Brite has been dermatologically tested and is safe to use around the eyes.

What are Selective Growth Factors?

Growth factors are messenger proteins that are inherent in our bodies and play a role in maintaining healthy skin. Rather than just including a whole mix of growth factors in our skin-brightening formulation, we selected specific growth factors (hence selective growth factors) that we believe have been shown to help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation.* There are many different growth factors available, but our formulation includes only synthetic (not human or animal derived) growth factors, including Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and another proprietary growth factor that has been shown to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase*. All the growth factors used in our products are INCI registered under cosmetic peptides.

Are growth factors safe?

There is adequate peer-reviewed medical literature evidence to support the safety and efficacy of growth factors in addressing skin conditions and anti-aging. Growth factors have been routinely included in many high-end skin care lines over the past 20 years, with no issues of long term complications or adverse reactions.*

Why were growth factors derived from human cells (i.e. placenta, foreskin) not used?

The growth factors used in Skinuva Brite are not human, stem-cell, or plant derived. We understand there is still controversy with this topic, and therefore only highly selective medical grade synthetic growth factors that are made under sterile conditions in a laboratory are used in the product.

Does Skinuva Brite have SPF?

We have not included sunscreen/SPF in our formula. However, sunscreen/SPF can be applied on top of Skinuva Brite. We have specifically formulated a brightening cream that allows the user to safely apply sunblock on top of Skinuva Brite.

How often do I apply Skinuva Brite?

In order to see optimal results, Skinuva Brite is to be applied twice a day. Results may be seen as early as 30 days, but for best results, long term use is recommended. Results may vary depending on severity of hyperpigmentation.

What are types of hyperpigmentation that Skinuva Brite can improve?

Our studies have shown that Skinuva Brite has helped improve the appearance of various types of hyperpigmentation on the face and body including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and under eye pigmentation*.

Is Skinuva Brite a serum or a moisturizer?

Skinuva Brite has been formulated and prepared as a moisturizer. It does not dry your skin out after use. You may apply your other skin care products on top of Skinuva® Brite if desired, but they are not necessary. Sunscreen and cosmetics may be applied on top of Skinuva Brite. A cleanser may also be used prior to its application if desired. 

Can Skinuva Brite cause skin reactions?

Skinuva Brite has undergone repeat insult patch testing (RIPT) in 60 test subjects and found to have no allergic issues. In our two clinical studies (Study 1 and Study 2), 218 patients were evaluated, and no issues of skin reactions or intolerability were noted.*
