Bioderma White Objective Serum benefits

 Bioderma White Objective Serum is potent skin lightening serum.  It helps in reducing pigmentation with help of:
  • Glycolic acid is a member of the α-hydroxy acid (AHA) family and is one of the most commonly used chemical peeling agents. It has exfoliating, reverses sun damage (such as mottled pigmentation), stimulates collagen & elastin production, quickens cell turnover, increases skin's thickness, firmness & hydration, and smoothes rough and wrinkled skin.
  • Niacinamide or Vitamin B3 helps in skin lightening and skin rejuvenation.

The intense peeling action of glycolic acid activates the elimination of cells loaded with pigments.
