The Gold Standard For Treating Hyper-Pigmentation, Melasma, Spots & Uneven Skin Tone

Topical Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is a science-backed, dermatologist favorite ingredient that has been clinically proven to help slow down skin aging, prevent sun damage and improve dark spots and acne. It is a powerful antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals that come in contact with your skin from an external source like air pollution, or from inside the body as a result of normal biological processes. Speak to any dermatologist and they will tell you that vitamin C is an essential active ingredient for treating hyper-pigmentation. At 25%, Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum offers the highest concentration on the market.

Tranexamic Acid is an exciting new ingredient that has become the clinical standard for treating Melasma. It is derived from the amino acid lysine and it inhibits melanin production in our skin turning our spots and scars brighter and lighter.

Saranghae is the first to offer 25% Vitamin C with Tranexamic Acid at 1%. We have stabilize these two actives at clinical grade concentrations for sensitive skin which is a significant achievement. The combination of these two skin brightening ingredients produce a result that far outshines what we’ve seen in the market to date. Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum is the gold standard for treating hyper-pigmentation, melasma, spots and uneven skintone.

Key Benefits

Clinically Proven To Decrease Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation (including sunspots, age spots, and melasma) occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain areas of the skin. It can also happen in areas where acne has healed.

Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum reduces hyper-pigmentation by down regulating the synthesis of the pigment melanin.  Vitamin C with Tranexamic Acid shows mutliple times improvement in treating hyper-pigmentation than with vitamin C alone. 

Helps Reduce The Appearance Of Under Eye Circles

Helps smooth out fine lines by plumping and hydrating the under eye area and brighten dark pigmentation associated with under eye circles.  

According to a 2019 study on three treatments for dark circles, vitamin C mesotherapy resulted in a significant improvement in the pigmentation of under-eye circles.

Brighten Skin & Even Out Skin Tone

Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum helps fade pigmentation and smooth the skin's surface to reduce redness resulting in a more vibrant youthful glow.

A 2017 review states that vitamin C use has been shown to impede melanin production (melanin is the pigment responsible for skin color).

By inhibiting melanin production, vitamin C can help fade dark spots and brighten your skin.

Treat Roscaea & Reduce Redness

According to a 2015 review, antioxidant Vitamin C shows incredible ant-inflammatory effects.  

Essentially, this helps calm and sooth inflamed skin and reduce puffiness. It neutralizes free radicals that cause oxidative damage and optimizes our immune system to suppress inflammatory responses in our body.

The anti-inflammatory properties of vitamin C with tranexamic acid shows excellent promise in treating rosacea and pain caused by rosacea.

Helps Heal Skin Wounds And Acne Scarring

Vitamin C and Tranexamic Acid accelerates cell turnover, according to a 2017 review

This replaces the damaged cells with healthy new ones which means that both antioxidants speeds up overall wound healing.

 Healthy wound healing reduces your risk of inflammation, infection and scarring.  

The same study measured that having a deficiency in vitamin C can make wounds take longer to heal.

Protects Against Sun Damage

Excessive exposure to oxidant stress via pollutants or ultraviolet (UV) irradiation is associated with depleted vitamin C levels in the skin.

Vitamin C levels are also lower in more mature or photodamaged skin, though researchers are unsure whether this is a cause or effect.

Sun damage is caused by molecules called free radicals. These are atoms with a missing electron. Free radicals search for other atoms from which they can “steal” an electron — and this can lead to significant damage to the skin.

Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect healthy skin cells by “giving” these free radicals an electron, rendering them harmless.

Helps Prevent Wrinkles & Sagging Skin

Collagen production is tied to skin elasticity and firmness.  When your collagen levels begin to drop, your skin may also begin to sag.

Consistently applying Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum will help boost collagen production, resulting in an overall tightening effect.

This is true for sagging due to natural aging, oxidative stress damage, or extreme weight loss.  This means it can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin, making your skin look firmer and more toned.

Many concentrated acids are simply too harsh and irritating for those with senstive skin.

THE CEO TEST

"Every team member here at Saranghae & Orora are required to test our products including myself, the CEO. Due to high altitude mountain climbing and running for long periods out in the sun, sometimes without SPF protection, I’ve acquired my fair share of sunspots".

"After less than 90 days of testing with Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum, we recorded visible improvements in pigmentation, discoloration, skintone, reduction in under eye circles and forehead lines. Honestly, these pictures don’t do it justice. The difference when I look at my mirror is astounding."

Peter Lee, Co-Founder, CEO, Saranghae | Orora

Julie Was Suffering From Melasma

It Started With Customer ConversationIn January of 2020, I talked with a customer named Julie Osborne who had suffered from postpregnancy melasma for years. Melasma is a common and specific form of hyper-pigmentation and it is sometimes referred to as “the mask of pregnancy” because the majority of melasma cases tend to present itself post pregnancy.

Julie shared that although she was happy with her Orora 5-Step Routine, she wasn’t seeing enough difference in her melasma. She also shared that up to the moment of our conversation, nothing, not even hydroquinone had worked for her (unfortunately, hydroquinone has now been linked to cancer). Thus started our journey of discovering a fomulation that was more effective than hydroquinone but safer and non-reactive even for sensitive skin. We tested over 30 different ingredient combinations and decided on 25% vitamin C + 1% tranexamic acid because it was head and shoulders better than the rest.

Does it work? Julie would tell you it absolutely does! We are proud to offer you our Saranghae Advanced Brightening & Dark Spot Repair Serum

Best Vitamin C Product I've Ever Tried

I've tried a variety of different brands' vitamin C serums and this is by far my favorite. It absorbs quickly and I've already seen a noticeable difference in the brightness of my skin since I began testing it about a month ago.

Such An Amazing Product!

The folks at Saranghae asked me to test out their new vitamin C product so I said yes.  They've never steered me wrong so I was excited to give it a try.  I was looking for a vitamin C prodcut anyway. WOW!  This brightening serum is a game changer for me. 

I am 61 and have sunspots and have tried so many pricey serums and treatments that I've lost count.  This stuff is the real deal, I keep looking thinking I'm missing something that the spots can be lightening so much, but they are 🙌🏽 so give this a try, you won't regret it. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and no issues

It Doesn't Get Better Than This.

After just a couple uses I noticed a reduction of fine lines and hyperpigmentation/spots--overall it truly brightened my face and evened my skin tone.

Despite having sensitive and dry skin, I was able to immediately incorporate it into my morning routine without any issues. My face is much brighter and smoother when I use it regularly!

I used to use the Skinceuticals Vitamin C, and it was ok, but I wasn't a fan of the smell.  But this Vitamin C serum doesn't smell at all, literally a quarter of the price and works way better for me. 

Highly recommend!!
