*Shiseido discovered the whitening effectiveness of m-Tranexamic Acid in oral foam 10 years ago. Since then, Shiseido applied a patent for use of m-Tranexamic Acid in skin care product. After several years of study, Shiseido launched HAKU Whitening Essence which contains m-Tranexamic Acid in 2005. This acid helps to reduce and suppress the production of melanin that may cause dark spots and other pigmentation problems.
