Tranexamic acid Powder is a synthetic amino acid derived from lysine. Topically applied, it works by interrupting at least two pathways in the skin that if left unchecked can lead to discolorations (e.g., dark spots, and brown/gray patches). It is even suitable for melasma-prone skin. Tranexamic acid also appears to work within the skin’s surface layers to make it less susceptible to UV light exposure, which ultimately helps skin retain its youthful appearance (though of course, sunscreen is still necessary for adequate protection).
Studies show the consistent application of tranexamic acid is safe, and with topical concentrations between 2-5%, results typically show after two to three months of consistent use. Research also shows tranexamic acid may help reduce certain types of sensitivity-induced redness in the skin.
