Tranexamic acid is a new type of high-efficiency whitening agent that can remove melanin and effectively lighten dark spots.

Tranexamic acid has a four-fold whitening mechanism:

  • Tranexamic acid can rapidly inhibit the activity of tyrosinase and melanocytes,
    while blocking melanin aggregation.
  •  Tranexamic acid can effectively calm the stress melanin accumulation induced by deep skin inflammation.
  •  Tranexamic acid can effectively block the secondary oxidation reaction of melanin (Mei’s reaction)
  •  Tranexamic acid can effectively reduce the melanin that has been precipitated and promote the peeling of the melanin that has been formed.

  •  High water solubility, easily soluble in water, colorless and odorless, not easy to change color.
  •  It has good compound performance and stability with other whitening raw materials.
  •  High thermal stability, no deterioration at high temperature.
