Frequently asked questions

yes! keep these tips in mind when layering Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum with your other serums.

+ use chlorophyll discoloration serum before ceramide barrier serum (ceramides will help lock in the benefits of alpha arbutin)

+ for other serums, use actives first (ex. Salicylic acid in postbiotic acne serum would be applied first) then follow with chlorophyll serum and any other serums you’d like to layer.

chlorophyll, an antioxidant-rich plant pigment, gives the serum its green hue. the serum absorbs beautifully and does not transfer to other surfaces or leave behind a green hue on skin — just a beautiful, radiant glow.

yes, you can use this with physical and chemical exfoliators like AHA’s/BHA’s and retinoids.

if your skin is more reactive, we recommend starting with alternating days you use CDS and the exfoliating product, and then increase to daily use with both as tolerated. otherwise, using CDS and exfoliators together in the same routine is perfectly fine.

yep! Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum plays well with other products and actives you may be using (like AHAs, niacinamide, and retinol). because everyone’s skin is unique, we recommend patch testing to confirm compatibility. 

Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum is suitable for blemish-prone skin and can help reduce the appearance of post-blemish marks. Chlorophyll helps offsets redness which can help calm the look of skin during active breakouts. additionally, its lightweight, gel texture may also be a great fit for those looking to avoid heavy, rich textures.

Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum was formulated to be sensitive skin friendly and was made without fragrance, essential oils, and known/common allergens. Its hero ingredient, alpha-arbutin, is also a gentler/safer alternative to harsher skin brighteners. We always recommend a patch test to confirm compatibility because everyone has unique skin and concerns.

Our Chlorophyll Serum was formulated to be sensitive skin friendly and was made without fragrance, essential oils, and known/common allergens, but we always recommend showing our ingredient lists to your doctor to confirm safety for you specifically!

Alpha-Arbutin is a sensitive skin-friendly skin brightener.  The ingredient is known to reduce tyrosinase activity, which reduces the formation of melanin in your skin. Reduced tyrosine and melanin levels decrease pigmentation and dark patches and ensure a more even appearance without lightening or changing your overall skin tone. While Alpha-arputbin is a derivative of hydroquinone, it does not convert to hydroquinone on the skin. Alpha-Arbutin needs an alkaline environment to convert to hydroquinone and skin is naturally acidic.

Yes!  Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum is safe for all skin tones, including more melanated skin. It does not change your skin tone, but evens out your complexion.

No. Chlorophyll Discoloration Serum will not lighten your overall skin tone and does not change your skin tone. It targets areas with discoloration changes to brighten and even out complexion.
