The Spotreducer cream has won the Grand Prix de la Beaute award in Hong Kong! This unique combination of ingredients fights uneven skin tone, blemishes and spots. The Spotreducer contains vitamin B3 (niacinamide) and ectoin (a cell-protective booster) that work together to protect the skin. An Australian study found that niacinamide 1% cream reduced actinic keratosis (a precursor of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma). And as icing on the cake, niacinamide also prevents suppression of the immune system caused by ultraviolet A (UVA) and B (UVB) rays. The spot reducer has also been tested by an independent blogger, see MeLikeBeauty.com for her opinion. Learn more about Niacinamide

The Spotreducer cream contains the following active ingredients:

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide, nicotinamide)

Vitamin B3 is an indispensable nutrient for healthy skin. It contributes to cellular energy production and promotes overall skin care. This miraculous ingredient reduces pigmentation and age spots, and counteracts both yellowing and blotchiness. In addition, vitamin B3 has anti-inflammatory properties and provides an essential supplement in the treatment of troubled skin.

Pigment spots:

Our cream based on vitamin B3 does not inhibit the direct production of melanin (skin pigment), but stops the transport of melanosomes to the surrounding keratinocytes by up to 68%. After an 8-week clinical study, our cream has been shown to gradually lighten skin and reduce age spots around the eyes and cheeks. Let the power of vitamin B3 work for glowing skin.

Double-blind randomized study (Niacinamide versus Hydroquinone in patients with pregnancy mask) from 2011 concluded: Niacinamide reduced dark spots, inflammatory response and solar elastosis (= loss of your elastic structure in the dermis) and is a safe and effective.

Hydration:

As an essential ingredient for a healthy skin barrier, Vitamin B3 prevents moisture loss and dryness while leaving skin feeling light and non-greasy. A 2000 study found that just 2% of vitamin B3 can reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by as much as 24% in just 4 weeks. At the same time, the essential fatty acids and ceramides in the epidermis were increased by 67% and 34%, respectively. This way the skin is optimally protected against moisture loss and bacteria.

Skin resistance and sun damage reduction:

An Australian study found that using a 1% niacinamide cream reduces the precursor of skin cancer, actinic keratosis. In addition, niacinamide has the special property of protecting the immune system against suppression by ultraviolet radiation (both UVA and UVB). Mind you, UVA is present continuously, during all hours of the day, regardless of the weather.

Ectoin

A natural substance has been discovered in the deserts and salt lakes of Egypt: ectoine. It protects micro-organisms against dehydration, UVA and UVB radiation and extreme temperatures. A study of more than 100 women shows that ectoine not only reduces existing wrinkles, but also prevents new wrinkles. It supports the skin’s recovery from UV damage, limiting premature photo-ageing. In addition, ectoine helps retain water molecules, leaving skin feeling smoother and more supple.

Ask your dermatologist

What is the difference between Iconic Elements Spot Reducer and Targeted Pigment Serum?The Targeted Pigment serum focuses on reducing pigment spots with a triple effect. The Spot Reducer not only reduces pigmentation, spots and spots, but also has a moisturizing effect thanks to the addition of Ectoine.

I have sensitive skin, can I use both Spotreducer and Targeted Pigment serum? Spot Reducer is safe to use, while Targeted Pigment can cause skin irritation in people with sensitive skin. It contains Malic Acid (derived from apples), an exfoliant that provides a mild peeling to renew skin cells faster. This accelerates the elimination of pigment spots, but can cause skin irritation in people with sensitive skin.

Can you use Spot Reducer and Targeted Pigment serum in combination?Yes, you can. Our products are specially designed to be used together. First apply the Targeted Pigment serum, let it soak in briefly and then apply the Spotreducer cream.
