A Sneak Preview – NEW StriVectin WH Photo-White Range


Recently, I was privileged to be invited to preview StriVectin newest and first whitening range – WH Photo-White which will be launching at all StriVectin stores in March 2012. It seems to be a glowing trend in cosmetics industry to launch whitening products especially during the month of February to April.

Having fun at the event, I was laughing at the polaroid of myself.

StriVectin, popular for its former famous deliver message “Better than Botox”, has recently revamped their products in August 2010.

StriVectin new improved formula NIA-114, a patented form of the skin nutrient niacin, is formulated with new more powerful collagen peptides to help rebuild skin layers and reduce all types of wrinkles in 8 weeks. StriVectin’s proprietary NIA-114 molecule, backed by over 30 global patents and 25 years of scientific study, was first discovered in skin cancer research to help rebuild skin layers. Proven to strengthen skin’s ability to fight off multiple signs of aging, NIA-114, over time, energizes skin, accelerating cell turnover.

Each of StriVectin range of products combine NIA-114 with another scientifically selected potent ingredient to help target a specific concern.

Many Asian women suffer from dull-looking skin, dark spots, discolorations and uneven skin tone. They long for a translucent, more even-looking and luminous complexion. To meet the demand of these aging skin concerns, StriVectin developed the new WH Photo-White.

Side note : Contrary to popular belief, whitening actually refers to a brightening of the skin tone, not a lightening of skin tone. Whitening product does not ‘bleach’ the skin and what it does is to lighten the pigmentation and brighten the overall skin tone.


Introducing the NEW StriVectin WH Photo-White

StriVectin WH Photo-White, a new whitening range which will be launching in March 2012, comprises of StriVectin WH Photo-White Booster Serum, Spot Repair and Day Lotion SPF 30. Formulated with vitamin C complex® and NIA-114 that help diminish the appearance of excess pigmentation (such as dark spots and skin discoloration) and skin becomes more even toned, brighter and radiant.

Its patented formula NIA-114 is claimed to be clinically proven to be 6x more effective than brightening actives alone in just 4 weeks.


Here’s an overview of the key ingredients :

  • Proprietary NIA-114 (niacin, in the form of Nicotinic Acid) targets the triggers that cause hyperpigmentation by normalizing the transfer of pigments, and rebuilding skin health so you can hold onto new radiance.
  • Natural Tyrosinase Inhibitors, Vitamin C and Synovea® Skin Brightener (hexylresorcinol), help to regulate melanin formation, which is the source of dark spots, sun spots and age spots.
  • Vitamin C (stable ascorbyl glucoside) diminishes melanin production, reduces existing melanin, stimulates collagen and acts as a strong antioxidant.
  • Willowbark Extract, a natural form of salicylic acid, generates cell turnover to shed pigmented cells and improve skin texture.
  • Betaine, from Sugar Beet, a natural skin softener, minimizes transepidermal water loss (TEWL) for an overall smoother, healthier-looking complexion.
  • Pomegranate Extract, a powerful antioxidant, aids in enhancing cell turnover.


StriVectin-WH Photo-White treatments works on three levels to:

  • Slow down the production of melanin
  • Normalize the transfer of pigment and improve the overall quality of the cell
  • Increase cell turnover to reveal those higher quality cells and get rid of dark spots
    and discolorations quicker!

    Hi Rena,

    Sorry, I didn’t realize I’ve missed your questions until now.

    Unfortunately whitening products are not able to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads. You probably need to use nose pads or facial treatment to remove them.

    Frankly, I’ve used many whitening products and most of them are pretty satisfactory. It’s hard to identify which is the best. StriVectin new whitening range is pretty good but there isn’t any sunscreen under this range. You will need to use a good broad spectrum sunscreen in the day in order to prevent further pigmentation or freckles from forming.

    You may also consider Clarins White Plus HP range, they are pretty good too. Love the exfoliator and brightening peel. These two products may help to improve your oily yet dehydrated skin a little.

Got something to say? Go for it!
