Exposure to environmental factors such as UV and pollution, hormonal hyperpigmentation (or hyperpigmentation caused from medication) or scarring caused by acne can lead to unwanted darkening of your skin’s pigment. These dark spots on your face, neck or hands can be difficult to conceal and prevent you from showcasing a youthful, healthy looking and bright complexion.
Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment works immediately upon application to deliver noticeable brightening effects to skin, as well as long-term to deliver dramatic skin brightening results. This powerful treatment works to make all skin types more radiant and beautiful with a powerful, concentrated blend of vitamins, botanicals, and powerful anti-aging agents. The treatment contains a high level of two forms of stabilized Vitamin C to support collagen synthesis and skin brightening, as well as Vitamin A for firmness and lightening, Vitamin B3 to reduce redness and uneven skin tone, and Vitamin E for moisture and free radical protection. Effective anti-aging ingredients like CoEnzyme Q10 and Sodium Hyaluronate provide even more anti-aging protection and hydration, while effective peptides improve skin elasticity and decrease wrinkles.
Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment contains ingredients that are clinically proven to offer the following benefits:

Key Ingredients and Benefits
SeneDerm Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:
Ascorbic Acid (Stabilized Vitamin C) – Ascorbic Acid is a natural water-soluble vitamin that is a potent antioxidant agent that functions in fighting bacterial infections, in detoxifying reactions, and in the formation of collagen in fibrous tissue, teeth, bones, connective tissue, skin, and capillaries. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals, and has been shown to decrease wrinkling, reduce protein fiber damage, decrease apparent roughness of skin, and increase production of collagen. Topical vitamin C has also been shown to reverse some of the age-related structural changes in the interface between the dermis and the epidermis.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Stabilized Vitamin C Ester) – A fat-soluble chemical bond designed to deliver optimal benefits to the skin, help restore a smooth surface, and increases Tyrosinase inhibition.
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) – Vitamin A is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis, known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the skin and the body. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Studies have shown that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in studies with regular use of Vitamin A.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) – a very effective skin-restoring ingredient indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness weakened skin surface, and congestion.
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) – Vitamin E is a strong anti-oxidant essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin against oxidation.
Ubiquinone (Co-Enzyme Q10) – neutralizes free radicals and helps to reduce and help prevent the damage they cause.
SenePlex Complex + – kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.
Sodium Hyaluronate – a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant than Glycerin. (It is the key water-maintaining substances in human skin. Harsh living environment and aging can cause the decrease of HA content in skin, and as a result the water maintaining ability of the skin is weakened and the skin looks dry and rough. One of the main causes of skin senility is also the decrease of polysaccharides, such as HA. The special structure characteristic of HA makes it highly moisturizing and it has a water content regulating function; additionally, its solution has high viscoelasticity and lubricity. When HA solution is applied on the surface of skin, it can form an air permeable layer and keep the skin moist and smooth. The small molecular weight HA can penetrate into dermis layer, fully combine with water, promote skin blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal metabolism, and as a result, it plays a role of wrinkle removing, improving one’s appearance and improving the health of the skin.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 & Tripeptide-7 – peptides that help increase collagen production, skin elasticity, and improve depth and volume of wrinkles.
Mica – an earth mineral used to give skin luminosity and radiance.
Glucosamine HCl – enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
Laminaria Digitata (Algae) Extract – hydrates and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.
Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil – the most stable oil in nature, full of radiance boosting fatty acids, vitamin A & vitamin C skin-smoothing, de-puffing, possesses exceptional oxidative stability and acts as a moisturizer and skin conditioner
Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract – Research has shown that rosmarinic acid, one of the components in rosemary extract, has a calming effect on skin, which may be useful for mitigating several common skin issues. Rosmarinic acid is an antioxidant, as is caffeic acid, another naturally occurring component of rosemary.
Saccharomyces Gerevisiae Extract – a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve skin conditions.
Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract) – tomatoes are full of antioxidants, which help to fight free radicals. These fruits are loaded with vitamins C, E, B6, B1, B3 and B2 and contain iron and potassium. Tomatoes are naturally acidic, and they help keep the skin free of oil, which in turn can prevent acne.
Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil – a light and ‘dry’ oil. When applied to skin, it immediately sinks in which leaves skin non-greasy. Helps to fight off inflammation and dryness while locking in moisture. This oil’s high dose of vitamin E boosts the skin’s ability to retain elasticity and clarity. Antioxidant vitamin E combats free-radical damage and inflammation. The oil’s unsaturated fatty acids enhance elasticity by making cell membranes more flexible.
