Peony root extract helps to increase brightness and clarity in uneven or dulling complexions. It is proven to inhibit melanin production and prevent pigmentation, making it an ideal brightening ingredient. As part of our brightening complex, it works alongside licorice root extract and vitamin C glucoside to even skin tone.

“Used for centuries as a natural remedy, the striking peony is often referred to as ‘the king of flowers’ not only for its beauty but also for its many benefits. The peony flower was used in early medicinal practice and is named after Paeon, physician to the Greek gods. In skincare, peony root extract is revered for its powerful brightening effect and ability to improve clarity, resulting in a more lustrous, even complexion.”
