With Which Active Ingredients Can You Combine It?

Tranexamic acid, derived from lysine, is known for its lightening effect on pigment spots of all kinds: Sun spots, pregnancy mask, signs after acne. Depending on which active ingredients it is combined with, its effect can be improved. Learn about which active ingredients should be preferred in a care routine with tranexamic acid.

Some Background Information on Tranexamic Acid

Tranexamic acid, discovered in 1950, was initially used in medicine to treat menorrhagia. It was not until the 2010s that its use in beauty care became increasingly known. It is therefore one of the newer ingredients in skin care.

Tranexamic acid is a synthetic derivative of the amino acid lysine. With the help of this active ingredient, hyperpigmentation spots can be reduced. Due to its regulating effect on melanin overproduction, tranexamic acid is used to fade brown spots and prevent their formation. The action of this acid is limited to the uppermost part of the skin, the epidermis. It is therefore recommended for the treatment of sun spots, pregnancy masks, after acne marks and even pigment rings.

In skin care, tranexamic acid is usually concentrated no more than 5%. Beyond this amount, its effect is not improved. However, it can be slightly irritating to the skin. Nevertheless, to improve its lightening effect on brown spots, it can be combined with other active ingredients, which are presented below.
