DESCRIPTION: Cetyl Tranexamate HCL (or TXC as its also known) is an oil-soluble derivative of tranexamic acid. It does everything tranexamic acid does with increased skin penetration. Cetyl Tranexamate HCI is considered to be 60 times more effective at lightening the skin that plain tranexamic acid.
TXC inhibits the plasminogen/plasmin pathways, as a result inhibiting melanogenesis. It inhibits dendrite interaction with keratinocytes.
