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 tegh 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 could be a serious aesthetic problem.
Changes in skin pigmentation
Typical pigmentary changes apppear during intrinsic aging and photoaging:
- Abnormal accumulation of melanin
- Acute or persistent UV exposure
Which 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.
The culture of a brighter skin
Skin brighteners are used worldwide:
- In Western countries, skin brighteners are applied for the prevention and treatment of irregular hyperpigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone.
- In Asia, brighter skin is a symbol of beauty and femininity.
- The use of skin brightening agents is widely extended by traditional beliefs.
