Harnessing cutting-edge technology and a meticulously curated blend of Hanbang (Korean Traditional Medicine) components, the Mela Defense line transcends being just another skincare product. It stands as a pledge to deliver luminous, evenly toned skin, fading pigmentation while embracing its healing attributes. Say goodbye to undesirable dark spots and welcome a radiant, youthful radiance that mirrors the inner beauty within.

Ideal for:

  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Dark Spots
  • Blemishes
  • Darkened scars
  • Sunspots


Tranexamic Acid rejuvenates damaged skin cells, excelling at diminishing pigmentation and blemishes, acting as a potent Tyrosinase Inhibitor. This inhibitor moderates the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase, pivotal in melanin synthesis. By impeding tyrosinase function, melanin production can be regulated, addressing concerns linked to hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and an uneven skin complexion.

Niacinamide, also recognized as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide, has shown effectiveness in impeding melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes. This interruption leads to reduced melanin production, potentially diminishing dark spots, sunspots, and assorted hyperpigmentation issues.

RiFerm-NPG, a patented formulation featuring Fermented Rice Water, has garnered acclaim in Korea for its innovative use of Hanbang ingredients. Clinically proven to deliver robust antioxidant and anti-aging advantages to the skin, RiFerm-NPG fortifies the skin barrier, shielding against environmental stressors that provoke skin damage like hyperpigmentation. Sourced from Yeoju, a region esteemed and safeguarded during the Joseon Dynasty, the Rice Ferment in RiFerm-NPG is certified organic by COSMOS.

Panthenol, a Vitamin B5 variant, functions as a potent antioxidant, aiding in the prevention of hyperpigmentation. Bisabolol, renowned for its calming and soothing properties, aids the skin in recovering from irritations that trigger Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Glutathione, an antioxidant, doubles as a skin brightener.

The proprietary blend of Patented Flower and Botanical Extracts collectively contributes to skin rejuvenation, hydration, cellular regeneration, collagen synthesis, and skin restoration. This harmonious combination acts as a shield against skin damage, promoting a luminous, even skin tone.
