You’re not alone if your skin features dark spots, skin discolouration, blotchiness, freckles or melasma as all are common skin concerns collectively known as hyperpigmentation. But what nature gives us nature can also take away with an exciting array of potent plant extracts that visibly fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation and enhance skin luminosity.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Usually harmless, this darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits in the skin — often clustering in a disorderly way to form patchy skin tone or dark spots.
Here to save the day, highly effective plant-derived melanin inhibitors have been tested and proven to be effective in fading the appearance of hyperpigmentation by disrupting production and activity of the enzyme tyrosinase — the main enzyme within melanin cells responsible for the production of pigment and our arch nemesis in hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation seems like a stubborn problem. Is there really a solution?
Correct, hyperpigmentation has a reputation for being difficult to treat. This is why it helps to have professional advice and a number of different approaches. Our Skin Journey Consultation is a great place to start. We can customise a combination of treatments and home care to tackle the problem.
For our home care, we offer Ultraceuticals, an award-winning range of skincare with multi-action ingredients to brighten and clarify hyperpigmented skin. We also offer several services such as masks, peels, microdermabrasion, IPL Photo Rejuvenation and Collagen Induction Therapy to help achieve your desired results.
A Synergistic Brightening System…
Drawing on the latest scientific research, the Ultra Brightening System uses a synergistic blend of ingredients to target surface hyperpigmentation in 5 different ways. Highly effective plant-derived melanin inhibitors have been tested and proven to be effective in fading the appearance of hyperpigmentation by disrupting production and activity of the enzyme tyrosinase — the main enzyme within melanin cells responsible for the production of pigment and our arch nemesis in hyperpigmentation. So, let’s meet the Inhibitors:
Native to the Mediterranean region, Melissa officinalis is a member of the mint family and is a potent melanin inhibitor which acts to inhibit tyrosinase within melanin cells so melanin production is reduced. Melissa officinalis is a botanical powerhouse
Oxyresveratrol (extract of Artocarpus)
Oxyresveratrol, found in plants such as white mulberry and Artocarpus, or Monkey Jack, is another potent melanin inhibitor and antioxidant with its depigmenting effect working on the inhibition of tyrosinase activity and melanin production.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) has been shown to be an effective skin brightening agent that works by inhibiting melanin transfer to cells in the epidermis, reducing the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture.
Also known as Uva Ursi, this botanical extract is rich in natural Arbutin (a tyrosinase inhibitor) and is well known for its skin brightening properties. A naturally derived melanin inhibitor, Bearberry helps to brighten skin and to protect against long-term damage from oxidative stress. Bearberry is shown to have skin-lightening properties
Now, let’s meet the Exfoliants:
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) – Lactic Acid and Citric Acid
Causing dead cells of the epidermis to loosen and slough off, increasing epidermal turnover, water-soluble Alpha Hydroxy Acids work by breaking down the protein bonds between dead and living skin cells.
Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) – Salicylic Acid
Being oil-soluble, Beta Hydroxy Acid has the ability to act on the surface of the skin. Working on accumulated cells within oil glands in the skin, which can build up and clog pores, it also has anti-irritant and anti-bacterial properties.
Shown to promote skin shedding and epidermal renewal, Methyl Jasmonate is useful both as a booster and an alternative ingredient when skin sensitivity is a concern.
