How It Works
Oxy-R Peptides harnesses the powers of gold-standard brightening agent oxyresveratrol, at a previously untouched concentration of 1%. A gentle yet powerful antioxidant, Oxy-R is used in skincare to target areas of hyperpigmentation, dark spots and post-inflammatory pigmentation. Found to be 33x times more effective than kojic acid, it works by helping to block the enzyme tyrosinase from functioning - the key enzyme responsible for forming pigment in the skin.
While exceptionally powerful, Oxy-R is an incredibly unstable ingredient. With yet another one-of-a-kind stability innovation, Medik8 have carefully curated a patented system to yield the unique benefits of ultra-high strength stabilised oxyresveratrol. Keeping the 1% Oxy-R stored in a preservation serum in the lid to protect its potency, Oxy-R Peptides uses Click-Activated packaging technology to ensure the formula remains stable from activation to final drop.
Oxy-R Peptides offers a triple-threat to hyperpigmentation, with twin brightening peptides working alongside Oxy-R to improve the visible tone of the skin. Tetrapeptide-30 works to help block the overproduction of pigment that can lead to visible discolourations and uneven skin tone, while acetyl glycyl beta-alanine works to help stop localised areas of pigment from appearing on the skin.

How To Use
Before the first use, press down firmly on the bottle lid until it clicks and shake for 30 seconds to activate.
After activating, we recommend you keep the bottle at room temperature (not too cold or warm) and away from windows for optimum efficacy.

After cleansing in the morning and evening, blend 6 drops of Oxy-R Peptides across face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
Leave to absorb before applying your moisturiser.
