Hexylresorcinol provides antioxidant and skin protective benefits while minimizing photosensitivity and discolorations. It is an age-fighting agent that helps prevent glycation (sallow, yellow skin) and encourages regeneration of the skin by stimulating cellular turnover as well as glutathione, a key component in tissues that strengthens collagen.
Hexylresorcinol also promotes the appearance of even tone while reducing future discolorations. This makes 4-Hex Lightening Gel an excellent product for pre- and post-procedure regimes.
