Equitance is a skin care line that focuses on brightening skin tones it was founded in Japan 18 years ago.  The line is created with botanicals, linoleum acid (a fatty acid that is extracted from safflower seed oil), that help skin cell turnover to improve skin texture and radiance.  Equitance’s botanicals help fade discolorations and dark spots caused by the sun, hormonal imbalance, aging or acne.  With the promise of better overall skin tone…
