Hexylresorcinol is an alkylresorcinol (AR), a type of phenolic lipid that can be found naturally in whole grain wheat and rye. In skincare, hexylresorcinol is known to function as a skin-brightening agent. It also possesses antioxidant, as well as astringent properties, that can contribute towards a more even tone complexion. It has been clinically proven to be four-times more effective than Hydroquinone in lightening skin. This result along with its anti-glycation and stimulatory effects on cell protective glutathione and antioxidant defense enzymes made HR a key ingredient of choice in skin brightening, anti-aging, skin protection and even-toning products. HR has not been tested on animals.
