Key Ingredients and their Benefits for hyperpigmentation/uneven skin tone:
MANDELIC ACID is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is derived from the bitter almond. It is regarded as a less aggressive AHA compared to other AHA’s. It removes dead skin cell buildup and gently, exfoliates the skin. Studies have shown that it has anti-bacterial effects and inhibits bacteria contributing to acne, significantly reducing acne. It also inhibits the enzyme, tyrosinase and therefore, lightens dark spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation(PIH). It inhibits the enzyme elastase, responsible for breakdown of elastin and collagen, improving elasticity and skin firmness. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is a great anti-ageing ingredient.
NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits, lighten dark marks, age spots, even out skin tone by inhibiting the transfer of the melanin pigment from the melanocyte to the surrounding keratinocyte skin cells. Studies have also shown that this ingredient inhibits elastase activity(the enzyme responsible for elastin and collagen breakdown) and therefore, improves the elasticity and tone of the skin, minimizing the appearance of sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves hydration levels of the skin by reducing TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss).
RETINYL PALMITATE (FORM OF VITAMIN A) reduces excess sebum, improves elasticity and skin tone. It also minimizes scarring from acne.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT is a botanical which contains polyphenols with both fat soluble and water soluble antioxidants. It is ideal to have both forms of antioxidants in the cellular lipid membrane and its hydrophilic core in order to fight free radicals. In this regard it has superior benefits to the use of Vitamin C compounds in skincare as an antioxidant. Through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, this ingredient lightens dark marks and has anti-ageing benefits. It also has anti-bacterial effects. Epigallocatechin gallate(EGCG) is a well known catechin. Catechins make up most of the polyphenols in this ingredient and has sun protective benefits.
LINOLEIC and LINOLENIC ACID (VITAMIN F FORTE) are essential fatty acids that improve moisture and function of the skin barrier. This ingredient improves absorption of other active ingredients by maintaining the moisturizing factors contained in the epidermis. It also helps to regulate sebum and unclogs the skin. It has soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits and contributes to brightening and anti-ageing effects on the skin. It has anti-oxidant benefits and plays a role in lightening hyperpigmentation.
UREA is classified as a keratolytic which means it removes dead skin cells. It improves moisture retention and therefore, alleviates dry, flaky skin. It also softens the skin.
BACOPA MONIERRI is an ayurvedic plant and has been used since ancient times for its healing properties. It is added to skincare for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It improves skin tone and reduces redness and irritation.
SHEA BUTTER is an emollient and humectant that moisturizes and soothes skin. It reduces inflammation and is rich in fatty acids as well as, Vitamin E. It also has anti-ageing benefits.
LACTIL® is a complex that contains Sodium Lactate and Sodium PCA which provides the skin with lipids and moisture, restoring the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF). Besides lipids the skin needs an optimal proportion of water to retain its softness and suppleness. The ability of the horny layer of the skin to absorb moisture depends on the moisturizing factors contained in the epidermis. The NMF are easily washed out by using soaps or other surfactants. This results in the premature desquamation of the epithelial cells and loss of suppleness. In addition, this complex contains glycine, urea and niacinamide that further enhance moisturization.
SILK AMINO ACID reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It improves moisture, hydration and texture, smoothening the skin.
