Dark Spots & Vitamin C: Our Unwavering Commitment to Clearer, Brighter Skin

Why the Dedication to Dark Spots?

Dark Spots (otherwise known as discoloration, uneven skin, or acne scars) is more than just an uneven tan or a few dark spots here and there. It's a concern that bothers countless individuals worldwide, often affecting their self-confidence and how they present themselves.

At Gleamin, our mission is clear - to offer advanced multifunctional dark spots solutions made simple and powered by nature-fueled innovation for your brightest skin and spirit. We deliver that by working with the best ingredients and combining them in new and innovative ways.

The Timeless Power of Vitamin C

In the oversaturated and sometimes confusing realm of skincare, trends come and go like seasons (sometimes even faster!). One day, it's an exotic berry from a remote rainforest; the next day, it's a compound synthesized in futuristic labs. While innovation is essential and often necessary, something must be said about tried-and-true ingredients that have stood the test of time.

For us, that ingredient is Vitamin C.

We've formulated our entire portfolio with efficacious levels of Vitamin C (up to 15% as of today) and within stable formulations for optimal efficacy. In most cases, we formulate with stable Vitamin C derivatives. We also weave together multiple forms and use botanical-based sources rich in Vitamin C, like Kakadu Plum, Desert Lime, and Cloudberry. Using a blend of Vitamin C technologies also enriches the formula.

Simultaneously, we've paired this powerhouse with other clinically validated active ingredients (such as Niacinamide, Tranexamic Acid, Bakuchiol, Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, Lactic Acid, etc.) for results that are guaranteed and formulations that are truly impactful for helping to minimize dark spots or acne scars -- a skin challenge that unites almost all of us!

Vitamin C isn't just another ingredient for us; it's the foundation of our skincare philosophy. Here's why:

Proven Benefits

The evidence for Vitamin C's efficacy in combating dark spots is vast and robust. It's not just a fleeting trend; it's an ingredient with a rich history of delivering tangible results and many different forms and derivatives to provide flexibility in the varying bases and formats (think oils, creams, essences) that we need to stabilize the ingredient within.

High Concentrations with Stability

We don't believe in "sprinkling" Vitamin C to have the ingredient appear on a label. With concentrations reaching up to 15%, our products promise potency without sacrificing stability, ensuring that every drop that graces your skin is effective. Here is a table of our portfolio: the types of Vitamin C we utilize and what concentrations exist in each formula.


Professionals in the skincare realm, the ones who've seen it all, have time and again placed their trust in the benefits of Vitamin C for dark spots and overall skin health.

Beyond the Noise

Our approach is refreshingly simple and straightforward in an industry often dominated by marketing gimmicks and ingredient bandwagons. We're not just another brand trying to capitalize on the latest skincare fad. Instead, our dedication remains unwavering to the timeless, potent, and transformative powers of Vitamin C.

The Future is Bright (and Clear)...and Gleamin.

We want to provide substantiation to the resources we utilize when selecting the raw materials and forms of Vitamin C. Using the best and most thoroughly studied and tested is essential to us.

We will continue to innovate and develop products utilizing Vitamin C and incorporating the scientific developments that continue to unfold to ensure the best and brightest formulations are always offered.
