A next generation treatment serum, the Pigmentation Corrector Serum is supercharged with 8 innovative technologies to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone for a clearer, more luminous complexion. Pigmentation-busting heavyweights include multi-tasking Niacinamide and a souped up Azelaic Acid derivative to pep up dull skin. Patent pending biomimetic peptides and Diglucosyl Gallic Acid, an intelligent molecule that’s activated by your skin’s own microbiome and has sixty times more brightening power than Kojic Acid.
“I wanted to formulate a brightening serum that was easy to use, even for those with sensitive skin. The result is this high-performing skin treatment that banks on a unique blend of top, innovative ingredients to pack an extra brightening punch without compromising the skin’s delicate moisture barrier,” Natalie Smyth, co-founder
All skin types and tones with pigmentation concerns, including oily or acne-prone skin as it prevents excess oil production too. The formula feels super-lightweight but is impressively hydrating, making it equally ideal for dry, compromised, and sensitive skin.
In the AM and PM, smooth 2-3 pumps over clean skin before your moisturiser. Always shake the bottle before applying. This is a gentle formula that works for even the most sensitive skin so it can be combined with retinoids, AHAs and BHAs.

Niacinamide: This form of Vitamin B3 is a true multi-tasker. It shrinks enlarged pores, strengthens the skin barrier, hydrates, repairs, evens out tone and protects against environmental stressors.
Diglucosyl Gallic Acid: This novel molecule is created using biotechnology. It’s activated by the skin’s microbiome and has sixty times more brightening power than kojic acid as well as boasting skin-soothing and antioxidant benefits too.
Acetyl Glycyl Beta Alanine: A patented peptide solution with a very low molecular weight that easily penetrates the skin. It stops the overproduction of melanin-generating enzymes like tyrosinase and prevents pigment from travelling to the skin’s surface.
Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate: A new generation Azelaic Acid derivative. Like the original it helps reduce blemishes, pigmentation and redness but is mixed with glycine for extra hydration benefits. It’s equally great for normalizing skin with an overproduction of sebum.
Licorice Root Extract: We use the only patented Licorice Root on the market that has been specifically designed for hyperpigmentation. Our Licorice Root Extract is extracted with higher quantities of specific compounds within the plant such as Liquitirin and the antioxidant Glabridin that target hyperpigmentation.
Hexylresorcinol: A phenolic lipid (a natural bioactive compound found in whole grain wheat) that inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase for brightening results that are comparable to hydroquinone.
Nonapeptide-1: A patent pending biomimetic peptide that prevents the production of tyrosinase so brown spots are reduced.
Ethyl Linoleate: An ester of Linoleic Acid, an essential fatty acid, which has antibacterial and soothing benefits alongside preventing pigmentation.
Can I use the Pigmentation Corrector Serum if I am breastfeeding or pregnant?
Yes, this formula can be used during pregnancy or when breastfeeding. It’s packed with many potent, next generation brighteners but they all work their magic at a gentle pace and are paired with hydrators, and skin-friendly calming and soothing ingredients. Most importantly, the formula does not use retinoids or hydroquinone which are not recommended during pregnancy. However, you should always consult your physician before using any product when you’re breastfeeding or pregnant.
How often can I use the Pigmentation Corrector Serum and what products can I use it with?
There are no retinoids or hydroxy acids (both AHAs and BHAs) in the formula, which can cause irritation if overused, so you can safely apply this serum twice daily. It can be paired with all other products in your skincare regime too. In fact, it’s specifically formulated to be used at the same time as other brightening treatments since a multi-product approach gives the best results for erasing stubborn pigmentation.
Where in my routine do I apply the Pigmentation Corrector Serum?
You can use this serum after cleansing, on bare skin and before any other serums or moisturisers. Always apply an SPF to top off your morning skincare regime and help prevent any additional sun-induced pigmentation from cropping up.
