❥ BEARBERRY EXTRACT has skin-lightening and antioxidant activities, the natural source of Alpha Arbutin. In-vitro studies showed that it is able to inhibit the production of melanin pigments in skin cells, Improves the appearance of age spots and dark skin areas, Very popular in Asian countries to lighten hyperpigmented skin areas. It is also used as a lightening agent to fade freckles or skin discoloration which may be caused by sun damage or hormonal conditions. It acts by inhibiting the enzyme, tyrosinase, which is responsible for the production of melanin in the skin. Bearberry extract also offers UV protection sun filters which can reduce the amount of tanning and prevent premature aging of the skin.
A one-month study on 80 Chinese women, using a 1% alpha arbutin concentration, resulted in a "skin lightening effect". It was faster and more effective than kojic acid (another commonly used skin lightener) and it left hydroquinone in the shade. This is particularly good news because hydroquinone, once the most popular lightener/brightener around, is carcinogenic. It is banned from over-the-counter sales in the US, Europe, and Japan. Alpha arbutin, on the other hand, doesn't appear to have any nasty side effects. The natural Bearberry Extract is actually 5 times more powerful than the synthetic Alpha Arbutin.
As with other skin lighteners, Bearberry Extract for skin lighting blocks the formation of color pigments. By stopping the pigment from being produced, it eventually wears off.
Used alone, Bearberry Extract for Skin Lightening can dramatically change the tone and color of the skin. Used regularly, it can remove even the most stubborn pigmented areas of the skin. Bearberry Extract for Skin Lightening also increases the cell turnover rate and because it is an excellent antioxidant, it works to fight free radicals.
Bearberry extract is a natural skin brightener that’ll help us attain a more uniform and brighter complexion. It slowly evens out skin tone by eliminating age spots, acne scars, freckles, and melasma.
❥ LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT is also a natural skin lightening agent because its extract contains actives called Glabridin and Licochalconelicochalcone, UV-fighting super ingredients. which inhibits tyrosinase, the enzyme that causes pigmentation after sun exposure. They help your skin produce higher levels of antioxidants, fortifying your skin’s defenses and preventing UV damage in the process. Not to mention, they can protect skin from damage even after unprotected exposure to UV rays. They help diminish any dark spots you have from scarring or sun damage.
Licorice holds the unique power to refine tone without inviting irritation along, unlike the majority of its fellow brightening ingredients.
❥ LIPOSOMAL ENCAPSULATED VITAMIN C) is Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate in a Liposomal Delivery System (LDS). has been tested extensively and reported in the journal of the American Academy of Dermatology to inhibit the production of melanin (Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its dark color ), when Vitamin C inhibits the production of the melanin, a lighter and brighter skin will reveal in just a few weeks. Also, Vitamin C is not only necessary for collagen production and maintenance, but it is also a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals in the skin.
One of the most stable forms of vitamin C. Vitamin C is especially useful in the appearance of anti-wrinkle and skin lightening, and its performance in these two arenas can be enhanced by coupling with SODIUM LACTATE which is also in the formula. This combination has been shown to dramatically increase the reduction of discoloration appearance.
The added benefit is the delivery enhancement that you get with an encapsulation because the phospholipid used to encapsulate the active is a much smaller molecule that can penetrate the top, dead, layer of skin and deliver the active to the tissues where you can gain the benefits of the Vitamin C rather than having them reside in the dead layers until they are eliminated.
⭐ Vitamin C Actives are one of the best ingredients that we can use for anti-aging and anti-oxidant products, keeping in mind that Vitamin C is highly oxidative. While there are ways to formulate with Vitamin C, minimizing oxidation to keep it safe for cosmetics use, it is very challenging and failure to effectively stabilize Vitamin C will result in an unstable product that will be unstable and create free radicals. Of course, in personal care one of the main goals is to address free radical activity to minimize it and avoid the damage created as a result. With my Liposome Vitamin C (Liposomal Encapsulated Vitamin C) that is stabilized and the oxidation is no longer an issue. The added benefit is the delivery enhancement that you get with an encapsulation because the phospholipid used to encapsulate the active is a much smaller molecule that can penetrate the top, dead, layer of skin and deliver the active to the tissues where you can gain the benefits of the Vitamin C rather than having them reside in the dead layers until they are eliminated.
❥ FRUIT ACID COMPLEX a smooth, brighter complexion with a diminished appearance of unwanted wrinkles. Fruit Mix Complex contains natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). Capable of improving moisturization while simultaneously increasing the production of structural components, such as collagen and glycosaminoglycan, as well as reversing cutaneous atrophy. Fruit Mix Complex will work to help brighten skin, shed the dullness, and deliver much-needed therapeutic benefits so you can shine.
These AHAs are commonly used to treat skin conditions such as rough skin, surface wrinkles and fine lines. Recognized for having exfoliating properties, AHAs leave the skin with a smooth and radiant appearance.
28.5% Lactic Acid naturally from Bilberry Fruit
12% Glycolic Acid naturally from Sugar Cane
6% Citric Acid naturally from Lemon & Orange Fruit
1.5% Malic Acid naturally from Sugar Maple
1.5% Tartaric Acid naturally from Sugar Maple
⭐Glycolic acid the smallest molecular structure of the group, has proved effective in cosmetics due to its ability to reach the deeper layers of the skin, thus making it an excellent exfoliating agent that provides immediate skin-softening effects. Glycolic acid loosens corneocyte attachments and reduces cell cohesion at the lower level of the stratum corneum to promote cellular renewal. As new skin cells generate, older cells slough off to reveal smoother-looking skin. Factors such as sun damage, age and environmental stress slow down this process which results in the accumulation of dead skin cells. The use of alpha-hydroxy acids can combat the problem by breaking proteolytic bonds to increase cellular renewal. Moreover, glycolic acid allows the capillaries to dilate and deliver more oxygen and energy to the cells for increased intracellular efficiency. In addition to increasing collagen and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) synthesis, Glycolic acid treatments also increase type I collagen mRNA and hyaluronic acid content of human skin.
⭐Lactic acid is an excellent moisturizing ingredient and beneficial for most hyper-proliferate skin conditions. One of the key benefits for using lactic acid in anti-aging applications is that research has also shown it is capable of reversing cutaneous atrophy. This will help thicken the skin to create a more youthful aesthetic.
⭐Citric acid is an intermediate in the Krebs cycle and is integral for ATP production, which helps to promote healthy skin by stimulating the formation of fibrous protein. The Krebs cycle, also known as Citric Acid, occurs in the mitochondria of our cells. This cycle is responsible for metabolizing sugar intake thus breaking it into carbon dioxide, water, and energy. In skin biology, Citric Acid provides cells with a source of usable energy. This, in turn, contributes to the factors that chemically exfoliate the outer layer of the epidermis.
⭐Malic and tartaric acids also influence skin tone and have been shown to increase elasticity, which is an important factor in enhancing complexion clarity.
