Melanin rich skin is incredible. It glows. It’s beautiful. Melanin protects your skin cell’s DNA so you look younger, longer. It protects collagen-producing cells to strengthen skin.

Melanin naturally exists in all skin produced by melanocyte cells. Everyone has a similar amount of the melanocyte cells that produce melanin, but it’s the quantity of melanin that these cells produce that varies from person to person.

Melanin rich skin is also not treated by the skincare products we see today. We know one product doesn’t fit all. That’s why we created MELÉ. We understand melanin rich skin is unique, down to the cellular level. Excess melanin production can create dark spots and signs of aging. That’s why we created a range of skincare that treats, protects, and nourishes your skin.

Looking to target and visibly reduce dark spots on your skin? Try MELÉ Even Dark Spot Control Serum. This specially formulated bi-phase control serum reduces the appearance of dark spots, micro-exfoliates to remove impurities. This face serum targets and reduces the appearance of dark spots to reveal radiant, more even skin.

How to use: Shake well before each use. Apply to entire face in the morning or at night after cleansing or a tonic.

At a biological level, melanin rich skin is unique. We’ve worked with scientists, dermatologists, influencers, and consumers of color to develop skincare that starts with the science of melanin rich skin. We are MELÉ. And we see you.
