ENRICH Forte provides bleaching benefits, with the Hq* ingredient. In addition, it also contains other bleaching agents as well as vitamin C, RA*, and an anti-inflammatory agent.
Hq* has long been recognised as being one of the most effective ingredients for reducing and potentially eliminating melasma. Over-the-counter Hq products can contain 0.5% to 2% concentrations of Hq whereas ENRICH Forte has 5% for better results.
Using Hq in combination with RA* can greatly reduce and even eliminate skin discolorations.
Interestingly, Hq is not only effective for those with sun or hormone-induced melasma, but its components also have potent antioxidant abilities.
