OXYRESVERATROL 1% (oxy-R):
Oxyresveratrol is proven to be one of the most powerful and potent tyrosinase inhibitors in skincare.
Oxyresveratrol is a natural compound derived from the mulberry family. It is able to block the action of tyrosinase, to stop it from converting the amino acid tyrosine into melanin. It is also a potent antioxidant which helps to minimise free radical-induced production of melanin.
Patented Stabilisation System
At high strengths oxyresveratrol is highly reactive and degrades quickly, losing its brightening power. Heat, UV and high pH's can all further enhance the degradation process.
Medik8 owns the patent for the stabilisation of a high concentration (1%) of oxyresveratrol in a cosmetic product.
The 1% oxyresveratrol is stored in a patented preserversation serum in the lid until it is plunged into the rest of the formula using Click-Activated packaging on the first use. Additional, patented stabilisers keep the oxy-R fresh for 6 weeks once mixed - ensuring it remains potent until the bottle is finished.
The patented stabilisers are based on a combination of incredible stabilisers - butylene glycol and antioxidants are featured.
Powerful Duo of Peptides
Inhibits tyrosinase activity, works to interrupt the pathways that lead to discolouration and uneven skin tone.
ACETYL GLYCYL BETA-ALANINE:
Works to stop the transportation of melanin to the keratinocyte where the overproduction of pigment becomes visible on the skin.
Before the first use, press down firmly on the bottle lid until it clicks and shake for 30 seconds to activate.
Recycle the lid and replace with the dropper.
Activate the second serum after finishing the first bottle.
After cleansing AM & PM, blend 6 drops of Oxy-R Peptides across face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
Leave to absorb before applying serums and moisturiser.

Improves uneven skin tone and boosts the overall appearance of sun-damaged skin
One of the major components of our natural extracellular matrix, helping to maintaining a firm and supple complexion, while providing intense hydration to the skin.
Hesperidin helps to stimulate blood circulation encouraging detoxification around the eye area to eliminate the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Hesperidin is also used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress the transport of melanosomes to stop aggregations of melanin in the skin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Able to shrink the blood vessels underneath the eye, it diminishes dark circles while firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Helps to shield against damaging environmental pollutants, able to form a film over the skin, Moringa acts as an ‘urban shield’ to bat away pollution particles before they can create free radicals leading to premature ageing and photo damage.
Blocks the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed, inhibiting the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine also helps protects the skin from infrared rays which leaves collagen untouched for firm, smooth skin.
