Skinuva® Brite is a physician-designed and clinically tested skin brightening product that has been shown to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation such as dark spots and discoloration on the face and body. Types of hyperpigmentation include melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, under eye hyperpigmentation and sun spots (solar lentigines). Skinuva® Brite does not contain hydroquinone, retinol, nor any silicone.
It is recommended to apply Skinuva® Brite twice a day. Results may be seen as early as 30 days, but best results are seen with long term use. Results may vary depending on the severity of the hyperpigmentation.
Skinuva® Brite uses ingredients that have been shown to work through medical literature.*
- Selective Synthetic Growth Factors: including Epidermal Growth Factor and others that have been shown to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
- Tranexamic Acid: heavily backed by data, it helps minimize the appearance and recurrence of discoloration and stubborn brown patches with continued use.
- Vitamin C: powerful antioxidant and also helps prevent melanin production.
- Arbutin: found in bearberry plants and helps reduce hyperpigmentation

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.
Is Skinuva® Brite suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
Although Skinuva® Brite is not contraindicated we do not recommend using while pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning on becoming pregnant.
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.*
However, if you experience excessive redness, itching or intolerance associated with the product, immediately stop using it and consult with your doctor.
