FAQ

IS YOUR SKINCARE SAFE?

Common ingredients in cosmetic skincare products designed to fade dark spots and address uneven skin tone include hydroquinone and kojic acid. Most skincare products also contain preservatives (such as parabens), and fragrances. Multiple studies have questioned the safety of these ingredients and as a result, more and more people are concerned about the potentially harmful products they apply on their skin.

InviCible Primer+™ is effective, safe, hypoallergenic and does not contain any of these ingredients. It is also 100% vegan and is NOT tested on animals.

Due to its superior safety profile, InviCible has won the National  Parenting Center Seal of Approval and was also voted a Champion.

Can the ingredient Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (form of Vitamin C) lighten skin tone?

It lightens abnormal hyperpigmentation (abnormal dark pigment) but won’t lighten natural skin tone (color). 

What is hyperpigmentation?

A hyperpigmented area of skin is not necessarily a condition, but a description of an area where the skin appears darker than normal. It can:

  • occur in small patches
  • cover large areas
  • affect any are on the body

Increased pigmentation isn't harmful most of the time, but it may be a sign of other medical issues. 

Does InviCible Primer+™ work on all facial skin imperfections?

InviCible Primer+™ is an anti-aging, moisturizing primer that also helps improve:

  • scars that are firm, raised, red, or hyper-pigmented (dark, purple, or red)
  • dark spots
  • pigmented acne marks
  • dark marks from burns or other skin injuries
  • uneven skin tone

InviCible Primer+™ also helps prevent hyperpigmentation after skin resurfacing procedures such as IPL and laser (please clear with your physician first before using).

We do not anticipate improvement in:

  • scars that have already healed optimally ie are just a thin, faint line, normal skin color and as soft as the surrounding skin
  • scars that are white or lighter than the surrounding skin, ie InviCible Primer+™ will not darken scars that are too light
  • freckles

Will InviCible help my acne marks?

There are different types of acne marks. InviCible Primer+ helps improve pigmented acne marks that are flat or slightly raised. Our product will not "fill in" deep acne scars (eg pitted or "ice-pick" scars"). 

Will InviCible Primer+™ irritate my sensitive skin?

There have been no reports of skin irritation or allergy. InviCible Primer+™ is hypoallergenic so skin irritation is very unlikely. You may however experience a slight stinging sensation that is a normal reaction to our dual vitamin C complex. InviCible Primer+ also contains medical grade dimethicone silicone which is a non-comedogenic skin protectant. 

Does InviCible Primer+™ sting?

InviCible Primer+’s vitamin C complex can create a stinging sensation in some people. This is normal and means the cream is working. Any stinging stops quickly. Do not apply InviCible Primer+™ to open wounds or in the eyes.

What makes InviCible Primer+™ unique?

InviCible Primer+’s formulation is very sophisticated. It is very difficult to stabilize hydrous and anhydrous forms of Vitamin C in creams. Creating a hypoallergenic cream without preservatives makes the process even more complex. InviCible Primer+™ is also the only skin treatment containing ProBiosyn-4™, an all-natural anti-aging, anti-inflammatory complex. InviCible Primer+’s formulation required years of research and uses only the highest quality ingredients.

Has InviCible Primer+™ been tested on animals?

No. Never has, never will.

Will InviCible Primer+™ stop my facial scar itching?

InviCible Primer+™ can indeed help with the sensitivity and itching of scars because it contains medical grade dimethicone silicone. However, if you are not trying to improve the appearance or texture of your scar, we recommend you consider trying a topical steroid preparation like 1% hydrocortisone cream first – this is more likely to decrease itching and is much less expensive.

Are there any undisclosed ingredients in InviCible Primer+™?

No. InviCible Primer+™ contains two types of vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and L-ascorbic acid), silicone (Dimethicone), and ProBiosyn-4. Nothing else. InviCible Primer+™ contains only safe ingredients that have been shown to improve scar healing.

Can I use InviCible Primer+™ on my child's scar?

Yes, if they are over 2 years of age. However, the vitamin C complex may sting and be uncomfortable for young children. We recommend you contact your child’s pediatrician prior to using any scar products on your child.

How fast will I see results?

If you use InviCible Primer+™ as recommended, you should start to see results within 12 weeks.

Are the results permanent?

No. Unfortunately our product won't stop time so you'll have to keep using it to truly benefit from its anti-aging benefits. 

Does InviCible Primer+™ stain clothes?

You may see a mild discoloration of white clothing after direct and prolonged contact with InviCible Primer+™.

Can I use my regular skincare regimen, make-up or sun block over InviCible Primer+™?

Yes. InviCible Primer+™ is an anti-aging foundation primer. You can apply foundation, make-up, sun block, or any other skincare regimen over InviCible Primer+™. Sun exposure can increase the redness/pigmentation of fresh scars, so we strongly encourage the use of sun block on top if you are using InviCible Primer+™ as a treatment for facial scarring.

What is STABILIZED Vitamin C?

When vitamin C is stabilized and in a high enough concentration, it can prevent and improve abnormal skin discoloration by slowing the production of pigment-producing cells and it also stimulates the production of new collagen in your skin.

What is the highest % of Vitamin C in a product?

17% Vitamin C is one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C available in a primer. 

How long before I see results?

Use twice a day and you will start to see results in three to six weeks. Everyone's skin is a little different so some of our customers begin to see results earlier and others, for darker spots, need a little longer. 

Continued use helps prevent new spots from forming - even better! 

Will InviCible Primer+™ help with a sunken scar?

No. It won’t “fill in” any sunken scars.

Is it good for healing scars?

InviCible helps improve scars after initial skin healing. Surgical incisions must be fully healed before applying. Do not apply to open areas, scabbing or raw skin.

 

In summary, here's what InviCible Primer+™ will and won't do for your skin: 

BENEFITS:

1) anti-aging

2) moisturizer

3) your make-up will last all day

4) hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic 

5) anti-inflammatory skin protectant 

6) helps fade dark spots and hyperpigmented blemishes (eg dark acne marks)

7) helps fade problem scars after surgery or trauma, eg scars that are raised, firm, or pigmented (eg pink, red, or brown)

It does NOT help:

1) scars that are already soft, flat, and pliable like the normal surrounding skin

2) scars that are white 

3) deep skin lesions (eg pitted acne scars) 

HISTOLOGY STUDIES

The histologic images below (10x magnification) are from scar biopsies of a single patient after 14 weeks of use. One half of the scar was treated with InviCible, the other half with petroleum gel.

The side treated with petroleum gel (right) showed significant epidermal thickening with parakeratosis, inflammation and increased production of abnormal collagen.

The side treated with InviCible (left) showed a thin epidermal layer with delicate rete ridges, limited inflammation and collagen architecture closer to that of normal skin. There was no evidence of silicone deposition in the skin treated with InviCible.

BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

I tried several creams on and nothing seemed to fade the spots until I tried Invicible. It started working after just a few days! Now I use it every day under my makeup.
