Clearz Ultra® Gel decreases blemishes and enhance natural coloration of skin. Octinoxate (Octyl methoxycinnamate) use is in sunscreens and other cosmetics to absorb UV-B rays from the sun, protecting the skin from damage. It is also used to reduce the appearance of scars. Arbutin is a glycoside, a glycosylated hydroquinone extracted from the bearberry plant in the genus Arctostaphylos. It inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the formation of melanin. Mulberry extract is incorporated into skin-whitening Clearz Ultra® Gel to reduce dark spots.
KEY INGREDIENTS OF CLEARZ ULTRA GEL

Hyperpigmentation, darkening of affected skin, is a common african american skin condition that often follows inflammation, burns, wounds and acne. Body increases production of melanocytes responsible for skin coloration while skin of color is healing. As a result, the affected skin may become darker than normal. Kojic acid is effective as a natural skin-lightening agent. Derived from a fungus, it inhibits melanin production, thus reducing dark scars, age spots and pregnancy or hormone-related hyperpigmentation.
