Based on your quiz selections, the Function of Beauty team of eco-conscious MIT-trained scientists and engineers recommend a complete regimen with products for your one-of-a-kind skin. The active ingredients in Essence's customized formula were kiwi extract, which helps impede concentrated melanin accumulation (the cause of dark spots); and azealic acid, a gentle acidic ingredient that assists in fading hyperpigmentation.
