ChromaWhite TRx®

Brighter, more luminous skin starts today.

ChromaWhite TRx® is the only system that rapidly delivers visible brightening and improved skin tone while improving skin health. ChromaWhite TRx® ensures you can treat your hyperpigmentation safely, without worrying about suffering from irritation or damage that can lead to premature aging.

how it works

The production of skin pigmentation is a multi-step process. Consequently, a multi-step system must be used to control discoloration and produce visible brightening results. When used morning and night, ChromaWhite TRx® delivers synergistic, around-the-clock treatment and prevention of hyperpigmentation.

This works on age spots!


At first I was doubtful about the effectiveness of this product but after just one week the age spots on my décolleté have almost totally disappeared! Now I will use it on my hands and one spot on my face... Stay tuned!

It's an excellent product for Asian skin


I start using this product a few month ago. My skin is an Asian skin therefore it's a bit yellow and start aging with a few brown spots on my face. I used this product for 2 weeks and I could see a bit different. It's been whiter and those spots have faced away. Now I keep using it day and night, right after cleansing my face and before moisturizing. Yes, I would recommend this if you want to have whiter and smoother skin.



Great product!


This product has helped me with hyperpigmentation from old acne lesions. It has a nice consistency and you don't need to use a lot of product so it really lasts.



Best Serum ever!!


I have tried almost every name brand serum for brightening and evening out skin tone. From Oil of Olay, Murad, Clarins, Shiseido you name it. This is the best! I have slightly sensitive skin but did great with this product. Seriously, noticeable improvement in skin tone after 4 days. Also, I didn't have to keep using it to keep my skin even. Once I achieved the tone I wanted, I stopped using it and dark spots did not return.

Am I doing something wrong?


Already had excellent reviews so I paid the price hoping my very uneven skin tone and acne marks would be reduced..They are still the same despite using the Dermalogica microexfolliant and tri-active cleanse. There all pretty much 5star products exactly aimed at me but no responce...whats wrong? It'll be 4 months soon...

works for acne scars


I use this with the Dermalogica pure night cream and it works wonders! I use it at night and I've seen results the next day!!! I will not buy anything else for my acne scars.

My boyfriend says my skin is better and he doesn't know I've been using c-12 concentrate for the past 4 weeks or so and he doesn't usually say things like that. My one and only age spot is still there :( I guess i'll keep going, not sure it's worth spending that much though, yoghurt, honey and lemon was just as good i think.I really wish it worked so hopefully in time it will, I'll get to the end of it and revaluate.



Didn't work for me:/


The reviews sounded so promising! I was so excited to try this product, but it has been 2 months and still no results! It is hydrating and feels good on my skin, but the ance and acne scars are still there!! Blemishes that were supposed to fade, still have not.

Lima, Oh


Fantastic but a hole in your pocket.


It's extremely pricey but it extremely works! This brightening serum doesnt bother my sensitive skin at all. I love results! Results is what i want! The ChromaWhite line is the only regimen that's given me the "Hollywood" glow that I've spent so much money looking for!

Better than anything else I've tried.


I've been using this product about 3 weeks now and I can see a difference. My acne scars are smaller and lighter. So far so good!

How effective is this product for redness?: I have rosacea like features on my cheeks


• C-12 Concentrate is designed to treat hyperpigmentation, it does not calm redness or sensitivity. We recommend trying Gentle Soothing Booster or UltraCalming Serum Concentrate.


Do I apply this before or after my daily moisturizer?


C-12 Concentrate should be applied to clean skin morning and night under moisturizer. Ideally Pure Light SPF30 should be used in the am and Pure Night would be used at night for brightening and evening skin tone.


Before moisturizer
