GLUCONOLACTONE (moisturizing, firming, calming). Gluconolactone is composed of multiple water-attracting hydroxyl groups, which hydrate the skin, resulting in enhanced degrees of moisturization. According to a study featured in Dermatologic Surgery journal, Gluconolactone is a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that is capable of chelating metals and may also function by scavenging free radicals, thereby protecting skin from some of the damaging effects of UV radiation. Gluconolactone provided up to 50% protection against UV radiation and UV radiation-induced elastin promoter activation. Contrary to some scientific fears, it does not significantly increase sunburn cells in human skin.
Although more research is being done on Gluconolactone effects on photoaging, in one study, signs of photoaging were significantly reduced after six and twelve weeks of twice daily use, including firmness, sallowness, fine lines, wrinkles, roughness, hyperpigmentation and pore size (Source). According to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, it may also show improvements in patients with rosacea, and is gentle on sensitive skin.
ETHYL ASCORBIC ACID (VIT C 3-0 ethyl ascorbic acid) (antioxidant, whitening, anti-inflammatory, UV protection). It is a stable, water-soluble non-irritating, non-photo-toxic, derivative of vitamin C. It has the same potential as vitamin c to boost skin collagen synthesis, but is effective in significantly lower concentrations, and can also be used to suppress melanin formation (in skin-whitening solutions). Is a better choice than vitamin c for people with sensitive skin and those wishing to avoid any exfoliating effects due to the acidity of those other formulations. Is also used for UV protection and repair, collagen production, skin lightening and brightening, as an anti-inflammatory and as a very powerful antioxidant. Even though is a stable form of Vitamin C, we include it in the product separately, to ensure the maximum efficacy during the days of usage. Ethyl ascorbic acid posses an anti-radical scavenging effect demonstrated in a ROS Assay after UVA and UVB Irradiations, Inhibition of the 6 cytokine secretion after induced UVB irradiation ensures the control of the inflammatory processes, interferes with the melanin production by inhibiting tyrosinase (-47.5%) and TRP-2 (-72.6%).
MELANO-MINIMIZER (HYDROLYZED ALGAE EXTRACT) (Lightening & evens complexion). Aqueous extract of Dictyopteris membranacea (Brown Seaweed) obtained from cultivated algae capable of reducing the global melanin production and transfer for a lightening and anti-dark spots effect. Lightens the skin of a sublime complexion.
