Dark Circle Eye serum

Sale price597 SEK

SIZE: 15 mL

Dark Circle Eye Serum is a high-potency solution targeting aging signs in the eye area, particularly dark circles. The serum hinges on medical-grade Vitamin K1 or Phylloquinone, noted in dermatological lierature for its role in the body's blood clotting process, which can assist in fading the appearance of dark circles.

Additionally, Bioskinup Contour™, an innovative blend of botanical extracts, helps reduce puffiness and fatigue signs. The inclusion of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, a gentle retinoid, promotes skin cell turnover, mitigating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In synergy, antioxidants, notably Tocopherol (Vitamin E), provide a protective shield against environmental stressors, while peptides, the building blocks of proteins, support the skin's natural structure, aiding in maintaining the skin's firmness and elasticity.

Balanced for optimal absorption, the Dark Circle Eye Serum merges scientific innovation with bioactive compounds to deliver visible skin improvements.


The benefits of the fat-soluble Vitamin E in maintaining skin health and appearance are well-acknowledged in both cosmetic and clinical dermatology.

Vitamin K1

Vitamin K1, also known as phylloquinone, is primarily recognized for its crucial role in the process of blood coagulation. Beyond its well-known effects on blood clotting, recent research has highlighted its potential benefits in skin care, particularly in managing bruising, dark circles under the eyes, and improving skin elasticity. Its mechanisms of action involves the regulation of blood clotting and reduction of blood leakage into the skin and soft tissues. This property makes it particularly useful in topical treatments aimed at minimizing bruising and under-eye dark circles, which are often caused by fragile capillaries leaking small amounts of blood.

Studies have suggested that when applied topically, Vitamin K1 can help reduce the severity and duration of bruising after laser procedures or surgical treatments. It is believed to aid in the body's process of reabsorbing blood near the skin's surface, thereby reducing the appearance of bruises.

Physiological Effects Of Vitamin K1
  1. Blood Clotting and Bruising: Vitamin K1 plays a critical role in the blood clotting process. It helps in reducing the appearance of bruises on the skin by aiding the body's natural healing process in resolving blood clots.
  2. Improving Skin Elasticity: It is believed to help improve skin elasticity and may reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  3. Wound Healing: Vitamin K1 can assist in the skin's healing process, although its effectiveness in wound healing needs further research.
  4. Under-Eye Circles: Topical application of Vitamin K1 is thought to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by strengthening capillary walls and reducing the visibility of blood vessels beneath the skin.
Role in Managing Dermatological Conditions
  1. Postoperative Bruising: It is often used in topical creams for reducing bruising following cosmetic skin procedures.
  2. Dark Circles Under the Eyes: Creams containing Vitamin K1 are used to diminish the appearance of dark circles caused by visible blood vessels or hyperpigmentation.
  3. Skin Aging: Its potential anti-aging properties might be beneficial in products targeting aging skin concerns.

Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin, plays a critical role in maintaining healthy skin, vision, and overall immune function. In the realm of dermatology, it is particularly celebrated for its potent effects on skin health and its use in treating a variety of skin conditions.

There are two primary forms of vitamin A: retinoids (including retinol), which are found in animal products, and carotenoids, which are present in plants. Retinoids are biologically active and are used both topically and systemically in dermatology. Topical retinoids, such as tretinoin and adapalene, are widely used in treating acne and photoaging due to their ability to regulate skin cell turnover and boost collagen production, resulting in clearer and smoother skin.

Vitamin A's role in promoting cell turnover helps to unclog pores and reduce the severity of acne. It also aids in diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making it a key ingredient in many anti-aging skincare products. Additionally, vitamin A can help in the treatment of psoriasis, a condition characterized by excessive skin cell production, by normalizing this process.

Vitamin A also possesses antioxidant properties, which help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV radiation and pollution.

Physiological Effects of Vitamin A
  1. Cellular Turnover: Stimulates cell turnover in the skin. This means it helps in shedding old skin cells and replacing them with new ones, improving skin texture and tone.
  2. Collagen Production: It aids in collagen production, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Regulation of Sebum Production: Help regulate sebum production, beneficial for acne-prone skin.
  4. Pigmentation: It assists in regulating skin pigmentation, helping to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
  5. Photoprotection: Antioxidant properties that protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.
Role in Managing Dermatological Conditions
  1. Acne: Vitamin A derivatives, like retinoids, are highly effective in treating acne by preventing clogged pores and reducing inflammation.
  2. Aging Skin: Topical retinoids reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines by boosting collagen production.
  3. Psoriasis: Vitamin A can help in managing psoriasis by normalizing skin cell growth.
  4. Hyperpigmentation: It helps in treating hyperpigmentation and melasma by accelerating skin cell turnover.
  5. Sun Damage: Vitamin A can assist in repairing and preventing sun damage to some extent due to its antioxidant properties.
