  • Patent number: 10537507
    Abstract: Certain dermatological formulations for direct skin application that correct for hyperpigmentation effects are provided. Such formulations include a number of different compounds that work synergistically to effectuate multiple and varied pathways to pigment removal and/or brightening within the dermal layer.
