LUMIXYL - The New Hydroquinone

Move over hydroquinone . . . Lumixyl is the new skin brightening cream on the block. Hydroquinone, the old gold standard for lightening hyperpigmentations (melasma, age spots, freckles, etc.), was forced into retirement when it was banned following clinical tests that confirmed it may cause leukemia with repeated use.

Researchers at Stanford University took this as their opportunity to create Lumixyl as a replacement. Using ground-breaking technology, this synthetic peptide technology (complex of oligopeptides) was formulated to be 40% more effective than hydroquinone. Clinical studies report Lumixyl is safe for all skin types, safe for prolonged use, does not increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun, has no side effects, is non toxic, non irritating, and works on uneven skin tone in approximately 8 weeks. Lumixyl seems to be an obvious choice to boost the radiance factor of the skin and knock it right out of the park. By prescription only.
