The hydrating serum absorbs instantly and is non-greasy, with a silky finish on the skin.
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 has carefully curated a patented system to yield the unique benefits of ultra-high-strength stabilized 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 discolorations and uneven skin tone, while acetyl glycyl beta-alanine works to help stop localized 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.
Recycle the lid and replace it with the dropper.
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 moisturizer.
Oxy-R Peptides is provided in 2x10mL bottles. Each bottle will stay potent for 6 weeks after opening. Activate the second bottle after finishing the first bottle.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
1% Oxyresveratrol (Oxy-R)
One of the most powerful skin brightening agents available in skincare, which is naturally derived from the mulberry family. It helps to block the action of tyrosinase, to transform dull, uneven skin tones.
An illuminating peptide that helps to minimize the production of tyrosinase, to block the overproduction of melanin.
Acetyl Glycyl Beta-Alanine
A brightening peptide solution that works to help block the transport of melanin to the skin cell, where the overproduction of pigment becomes visible on the skin.
With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere into the skin, leaving the complexion feeling both nourished and supple.
