Introducing Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions® Clearly Corrective™ White Range

new multi-action formulas clinically demonstrated to visibly correct skin tone more effectively, year round

Following the 2010, breakthrough development of Kiehl’s Ultimate White Line, Kiehl’s Since 1851 chemists introduce a latest-generation, fast, exceptionally effective 5-step range of formulations developed for Asian customers to promote youthful clarity and a brighter, luminous appearance – Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions® Clearly Corrective™ White.

The anchor of this highly effective range is Kiehl’s unique, entirely clear preparation Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution, which is 100% active to quickly begin attacking deep-set dark spots without over drying the skin. The formula’s key ingredient, power-packed, Activated C is the latest generation Vitamin C derivative on the market and with its “anti-cluster” technology, swiftly breaks apart discolorations and prevents the formulation of new pigment clusters.

Formulated with White Birch and Peony Extracts, the results of this potent combination are clear: fast, correction year-round, for visibly more uniform skin tone and overall clarity.

Traditionally discolouration products have worked this way:

  • Exfoliating skin to decrease retention of unwanted melanin at the surface
  • Limited excessive melanin production and slowing the transfer of melanin to surrounding keratinocytes
  • Increasing anti-oxidant protection to prevent skin damage and melanin over-production

Through comprehensive research, Kiehl’s chemists discovered that Activated C limits excessive melanin more effectively and adds an innovative, valuable step in the fight against unwanted pigmentation: prevention of melanin clusters. Activated C actually breaks up existing melanin clusters, treating pigment currently present in the skin and inhibiting the formation of new melanin clusters.

Activated C has a very small molecular size and is highly stable. This makes it a highly efficient ingredient working upon application to deliver sustained activity.

Activated C doesn’t require an enzymatic reaction to become bio-available. It is 100% active on the skin immediately allowing for faster penetration. It begins working rapidly to inhibit melanin synthesis and destroy melanin clusters – limiting the transfer of melanin to the skin.

Swift treatment of melanin clusters and simultaneous prevention of future discolorations is the key to treating hyperpigmentation.

The fast this activity on the skin can occur – the sooner patients can see a visible difference.

  1. This looks like it means business! I have very sensitive skin and have discovered a brightening serum that has worked for me without being too harsh. It is from a line called “Tatcha”. I love everything in the line including the Camellia Oil cleanser that has no mineral oil and washes off cleanly, leaving no oily residue or creepy chemical feel. Have you heard of this line? They also have a wonderful exfoliant that comes in 3 strengths. It is a powder that turns into a velvety, creamy foam when water is added. The exfoliant is an enzyme formula so no harsh scrubbing grains. Turns your face baby soft! It’s so gentle I can use it on my neck and chest. They also have a very nice moisturizer and some blotting papers. The whole line is so pleasant to use and has ingredients like green tea, camellia oil, rice bran etc. I love this line because of the lack of chemicals. You feel like you are gently and thoroughly cleaned and moisturized in a natural, pure way without gross chemicals that are in every other line. They sell a very generous sized Travel or Trial Kit that lasts a long time with all the products so you can take your time trying everything out and be sure you like the items. The Trial Kit included all 3 strengths of exfoliant so you can try each one and be sure which is right for you. None are too harsh for even my face which is very dry and has rosacea but the strongest one really cleans oil off well. Each item can be ordered separately or you can get a kit of full sized items at a bit of a discount if you like everything. You should check out their website. I think you’d really like these products.
