FAQ - InviCible Primer+ and Dark Spot Corrector


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.

Does Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (stable 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 an area of skin that appears darker than normal. It can:

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

Increased pigmentation isn't usually harmful, but it may be a sign of a medical issue. 

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

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

  • Facial imperfections caused by scarring (eg scars that are firm, raised, dark, purple, or red)
  • Dark spots
  • Pigmented acne marks
  • Dark scars 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 Primer+™ help my acne marks?

There are different types of acne scarring and associated hyperpigmentation. 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?

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 too close to the eyes.

What makes InviCible Primer+™ unique?

Our 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, effective, and ethically-sourced 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 young scars that are still healing 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 an over-the-counter 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.

Are the results permanent?

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

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 make-up, sunblock or other products over InviCible Primer+™?

Yes. InviCible Primer+™ is an anti-aging foundation primer. It creates a smooth, silky, clean canvass for makeup, and your makeup will last all day. You can also apply foundation, sunblock, or any other skincare regimen over InviCible Primer+™. 

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. It also stimulates the production of new collagen in your skin. Unfortunately, many forms of vitamin C are unstable and oxidize over time on exposure to air. Oxidized vitamin C loses its effect completely. Oxidized vitamin C also turns a brown color, which is why many other vitamin C products are colored brown to begin with to disguise this vitamin C oxidation. InviCible Primer+ is white so our users know they are getting ongoing, full benefit from our 17% stable vitamin C complex which won't oxidize.

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.

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.


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.
