Illuminating White -  Solution for discolored skin!

Illuminating White is a new, innovative formula for reducing skin spots. It contains SAFE ingredients and delivers the fastest and most efficient results. The Illuminating White formula has been tested successfully on all skin colors and types.

How does it Work?

 

Illuminating White attacks the hyperpigmentation issue from different angles. Darkly pigmented skin is caused by excess production of melanin in the body.

When there is too much melanin production, dark spots may appear in different areas of your body such as your face, neck, chest and arms. The reasons for dark spots on your skin are varied. Skin injury or disease such as acne or eczema can trigger the skin to produce more melanin, certain skin procedures like chemical peel and laser therapy may also lead to dark spots. Too much sun exposure, hormones, or the effects of certain drug medications are also some of the reasons why you have those unwanted spots on your body as well.

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!

We recommend using Illuminating White on clean skin, applying the serum directly to the dark spots. After it dries, apply sunscreen SPF 20 or higher for daytime, at night follow with moisturizers.

Keep in mind that the tyrosinase production is halted by the treatment. Tyrosinase is a copper colored enzyme that is responsible for the dark color. The dark spots will appear again in the same places because of the overactive production of melanin. We recommend continued use.

There is no reason to avoid the beach or any of the outdoor activities you love! Illuminating White can help you rid yourself of discoloration and keep it from coming back! When there are areas of hyperpigmentation the ongoing use of this treatment will keep your skin color even and beautiful.

In summary:

The process of skin sun tanning is a multi-chain reaction. The melanin is produced inside the melanosomes in bodies called melanocyte, they are released from the melanocyte and travel to the epidermal cells. They are then injected into the epidermal cells, where they get enlarged and cause the skin to become brownish.

The traditional whitening process is achieved by competitive inhibition of tyrosine activity, thus preventing melanin formation. Our product tackles the skin discoloration problem from more than one angle.

Illuminating White contains active ingredients that:

  1. Stop tyrosine activity by competitive and non-competitive processes.

  2. Prevent melanosomes formation in the melanocytes

  3. Prevent the release of melanosomes from the melanocytes

  4. Interfere with the uptake of the melanosomes into the epidermal cells. Melanosomes that do not enter the cell shortly after they are released are destroyed in the extra cellular matrix.

  5. Actively reduce existing melanin by anti-oxidants, Resveratrol and others.   

 

 Here is a full list of components and their synergetic effect.  

 

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.

Those molecules are:

A.  Phentlethyl Resorcinol
B. 4 Hexl Resorcinol

C. 4 Butyl Resorcinol

 

All three are more effective than Hydroquinone at the same level of concentration and are safe to use.

 

They modulate melanogenesis, Inhibits Peroxidase - stimulating Glutathion and protects DNA reduction in DNA fragment induced thyrosynas synthesis.

 

Their activity goes from Phenethyl Resooreinol (the least) through Hexylresorcinol to 4 Butyl Resorcinol (the most active)

 

There is a maximum concentration allowed to be used of each of the materials, we mix all of them at their maximum allowance in order to have maximum activity which equals maximum results!

 

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:

 

a. Inhibits melanin production by:

1. Delaying alpha- MSH hormone.

2. Delaying TRP-2 protein.

b. Delays melanosomes transfer to target cells

c. Causes rapid lightening (as soon as 7 to 10 days) probably by dissolving existing melanin.

 

A large advantage of using Resveratrol is that it does not cause skin irritation. On the contrary, it has anti-inflammatory effects.

Resveratrol has a heightened activity, especially when combined with Resorcinol derivatives.        There are several types of Resveratrols.

The most important part is verifying that the mix of Resveratrols will have:

a. High activity  

b. Long term stability                    

c. Doesn't collide with existing patents.

 

Our solution:

To use a concentrate from three plants containing different Resveratrols: poly Resveratrols

The main advantage of using natural concentrates lies in the fact that they contain stabilizers.

The plants are:

               - 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.
