More information about Skinbright Active
The colour of our skin is determined mainly by the amount, distribution and type of melanin, a pigment produced by melanocyte cells in a process called melanogenesis. Melanin synthesis takes place in melanosomes, which contain specific enzymes controlling the production of pigments. The first step of melanogenesis is mediated by tyrosinase, a key enzyme that catalyses the first two reactions of melanin synthesis. Abnormal accumulation of melanin is responsible for hyperpigmentations, which can be distressing for some people.
Changes in skin pigmentation
Typical pigmentary changes apppear during intrinsic aging and photoaging. These may be a result of theabnormal accumulation of melanin oracute or persistent UV exposure.
This, in turn, leads to: Hyperpigmentation: melasma, freckles, age spots and senile lentigines (or more commonly known as age spots, or liver spots, which are benign, localised brownish patch on the skin, often occuring in old age and usually in fair-skinned people with sun-damaged skin.
