Tranexamic Acid + Kojic Acid + Alpha Arbutin + Vitamin E
WHAT IS IT? Skarfix-TX cream is a novel approach in the treatment of melasma and uneven skin tone. A powerful cream to effectively diminish the appearance of Melasma, PIE, PIH, and hyperpigmentation. With the power of Tranexamic Acid which inhibits melanin transfer with great efficacy and synergistic effect by Kojic acid, alpha arbutin and vitamin E.
WHY IS IT DIFFERENT?
Skarfix-TX cream is made with Tranexamic Acid with an excellent percentage i.e. 10%, which is a derivative of the amino acid lysine. It reduces the activity of melanocyte tyrosinase thereby treating melasma, UV-induced hyperpigmentation, and other post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Kojic Acid which gently exfoliates & further reduces post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (like acne marks).
Alpha Arbutin and Kojic Acid are natural demelanizing agents. Tranexamic Acid is ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening agents. Alpha Arbutin dramatically reduces dark spots and blemishes for brighter, even-looking skin. This combination of efficient actives targets the melanin from all directions to give the best possible results.
BACKED BY SCIENCE
Tranexamic acid has recently become increasingly common in skin-care products thanks to its science-backed benefits. It can treat kinds of hyperpigmentation, including acne scarring, PIH, PIE. According to research, topically-applied tranexamic acid works by inhibiting a pigment-producing enzyme in your skin called tyrosinase. This interaction keeps melanocytes, or the cells that form melanin, in your skin from becoming overstimulated—which is what causes dark spots in the first place. In addition to controlling the uneven production of melanin, then Tranexamic acid will help calm the skin, reduce inflammation, and help promote the health of the skin's natural barrier. Kojic acid can help scavenge and counteract skin-damaging free radicals caused by exposure to things such as UV damage and pollution and have anti-inflammatory and anti-viral property.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
- Apply on the affected skin area after proper cleansing by gently tapping it on the skin. With a circular motion, evenly spread the Skarfix-TX cream and allow your skin to absorb it.
- For best results apply in the morning and evening followed by a sunscreen in the day time.

TRANEXAMIC ACID helps to decrease melanin formation and restore the skin barrier to protect the skin, including the sensitive one. Tranexamic acid is a new generation molecule that inhibits melanin synthesis by interfering with the interaction between melanocytes and keratinocyte through inhibition of plasmin system. External skin disruptors, such as UV light or injuries (like acne), cause the keratinocytes in our skin to produce plasminogen, that further start several processes like inflammation, increased tyrosinase activity, melanocyte differentiation, and transfer of melanosomes to upper skin layers. Tranexamic acid decelerates these processes by interfering with plasmin activity, and hence in turn, indirectly inhibiting melanogenesis.
KOJIC ACID DIPALMITATE
KOJIC ACID DIPALMITATE removes dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and organisms that might be thriving on your skin. It reveals newer skin layer and aids in reducing the melanin production. Kojic acid is a natural crystal-like substance produced by some species of fungi, especially Aspergillus Oryzae.
Kojic acid inhibits and prevents the formation of tyrosine, which is an amino acid that’s needed to produce melanin. Kojic acid can have a lightening effect because it inhibits the production of melanin and helps to fade dark spots and discoloration. It also delivers some antioxidant protection. Even though kojic acid has been declared a safe ingredient for cosmetic use.
KOJIC ACID DIPALMITATE
ALPHA ARBUTIN works by inhibiting tyrosinase activity that limits the melanin production in your skin. Less tyrosine and less melanin leads to lesser pigmentation, dark spots, and a more even complexion. Be it age spots, acne scars or post-blemish redness, alpha arbutin minimizes it all.
Alpha arbutin is a choice brightening ingredient because it's a derivative of hydroquinone, one of the most effective skin-lightening and spot-fading actives out there.
Tocopheryl acetate is a specific type of vitamin E, in a class of organic chemical compounds known as tocopherols. Vitamin E protects the skin from harmful UV rays and maintains its vitality.
Vitamin E may also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. Due to its higher stability, Tocopheryl Acetate is also used in vitamin E dietary supplements. The antioxidants in vitamin E are known to protect the cell from damage that naturally occurs from free radicals. These free radicals are formed in the body during normal processes (such as energy production). Tocopheryl acetate is a natural tocopherol and one of the most potent antioxidant tocopherols.
