--Michael Bruggeman, CEO & Founder
Without engaging in the safety discussion of various brightening and bleaching ingredients and end products, there are a host of other factors to consider in choosing hyperpigmentation correcting solutions. Consumers are becoming savvier in understanding whether or not an ingredient is of plant or petroleum origin. Few product purchasers, however, consider the biodegradability of an ingredient once it is washed off the body, much less the impact of the manufacturing process on the environment. Oftentimes unknowingly, the registers ring yet another contribution to global warming and environmental degradation.
As consumers, we understand the low carbon emissions and conscious supply chain management associated with locally sourced raw, organic, whole and unprocessed foods. Somehow we fail to apply this same logic to the products we choose to spread over our bodies.
Fortunately, advanced green science alternatives to traditional synthetic brightening ingredients are growing at an exponential pace. While the efficacy of Hydroquinone, for example is indisputable, new plant-based alternatives are gaining traction as they become more economically viable for skin care product manufacturers and patrons who choose those brands.
"I feel so uniformed about the choices I am making in skin care products today. I ensure my family eats well and we choose organic as often as we can. I just don’t have the same level of understanding about the personal care products we use."
Watch for These Natural Ingredient Choices
Ergothionine – powerful antioxidant amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and is found in high concentrations around cells that are subjected to free radical damage. Like Vitamin C, Ergothionine cannot be synthesized must be supplemented. Natural sources include: mushrooms, barley, broccoli and brussel sprouts. Revolutionary application chelates copper, inhibits the production of tyrosinase and melanin, and stimulates cellular repair to help prevent and correct hyperpigmentation | sun damage.
Glabridin – in a comprehensive study released February of 2012, entitled: Topical Hypopigmenting Agents for Pigmentary Disorders and Their Mechanisms of Action, the research team of Hyojin Kim, M.D., Hye-Ryung Choi, Ph.D., Dong-Seok Kim, Ph.D. and Kyoung-Chan Park, M.D., concluded that Glabridin, present in Licorice roots, inhibits both melanin synthesis and inflammation.
Primula Veris (Cowslip) Extract – extremely high in Beta Carotene and Vitamin C. Targets hyperpigmentation to reveal a brighter complexion.
Veronica Officinalis Leaf (Speedwell) Extract – astringent, skin conditioner and brightening agent.
