*Flat rate shipping anywhere in the US is just $5.00.

How it Works: 

When applied directly to the spots themselves, overactive melanin production is halted by stabilizing the tyrosinase, thus inhibiting the activity of the tyrosinase, which is an enzyme responsible for melanin synthesis. On the surface, our lightening agents are at work lightening your spots and healing your skin at the same time. We recommend using directly on the discolored spots until they are gone and then the entire face or other area can all be lightened together. Illuminating White will itself cause a slight desquamation of the skin creating a fresh healthy glow!

 

Active ingredients:

1.Diacetyl Boldine: Stabilizes tyrosinase in its inactive form via antagonistic receptors. Plus it also regulates calcium flow, thus inhibiting the activity of the tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for melanin synthesis.

2. Rumex Occidentalis: Extract and Ascorbic Acid: Inhibits the effect of tynosynase by competing with the enzyme in three places along the melanin synthesis chain of production.

 3,4,5. Resorcinol Derivates: In the last 10 years, three derivates of Resorcinol were developed. All three are skin lighteners: Phentlethyl Resorcinol, 4 Hexl Resorcinol, 4 Butyl Resorcinol

6,7,8. Poly-Resveratrol or Resveratrols of natural sources. Resveratrol is a very important ingredient in lightening creams as it has several parallel actions. It Inhibits melanin production by Delaying alpha- MSH hormone, Delaying TRP-2 protein, Delays melanosomes transfer to target cells, Causes rapid lightening (as soon as 7 to 10 days) probably by dissolving existing melanin. Resveratrol does not cause skin irritation. On the contrary, it has anti-inflammatory effects.

Plant stabilizers: Artocarpus lakoocha wood extract, Pterocarpus arsupium bark extract, Artocarpus heterophyllus seed extract. 

9. Octa decanoic Acid: Inhibits the transcription of the Gene (DNA) of Tyrosinase to RNA (from which the protein id translated), thus inhibits tyrosinase production in the nucleic acid stage.

10. Oxthiazolidine Carboxylic Acid: This pro-cysteine molecule prevents melanin synthesis through binding copper ions that are essential for tyrosinase activity (responsible for melanin production).

11. Tetrahydrodiferulylmethane: Extracted from curcumin, inhibits tyrosinase activity and slows down melanogenesis. Acts as a strong antioxidant. Activity is similar but lower than Hexytresorinol. Added to increase activity since all other resorcinols derivates were added at their maximum allowed concentration.

12. Nonapeptide -1: Biomimetic peptide which inhibits melanin synthesis induced by Alpha-MSH (it is an antagonist to Alpha-MSH). It also reverses hyperpigmentation. The inhibition mechanism is to block tyrosinase activity - not to compete with the enzyme, meaning - high activity at low levels! It inhibits melanogenesis without cytotoxicity. This activity is synergistic when combined with Rumex Occidentalis extract.
