It sounds magical, but here's a little secret. It's just good old-fashioned science! So let's take a deep dive into all the powerful, sustainably-sourced ingredients that make this formula so special, and how it's going to help your skin look even more radiant!

First up is Vitamin C, a proven skincare powerhouse with a whole host of benefits. The uniquely stable oil form easily absorbs into the skin, helping diminish the look of unwanted discoloration and giving your skin that coveted firmness and *bounce*.

Over time, skin produces less and less of the hydrating agent squalene. So Biossance concocted their own version called squalane, using 100% renewable sugarcane that's fermented to create an end result that's just as safe and effective as the real deal. It's a multitasking moisturizer that's 100% vegan *and* Mother Nature-approved.

Here's the real secret sauce — Biossance's proprietary white shiitake mushroom extract! These super mushrooms target dark spots. But they won't just help existing ones fade — they can help ward off new ones. Even if you don't have dark spots, you certainly want to prevent them.

The Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum is super easy to integrate into any skincare routine, so you can reap the benefits whether you like to keep it simple or have a full 12-step regimen. For best results, just apply daily in the morning onto a squeaky clean face before your regular moisturizer!

And the best part? The Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum, like everything from Biossance, is non-toxic, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and (those two magic words) *clinically effective*.
