  • Hyperpigmeted Skin Phase 1

    R2,007.00

    Hyperpigmentation, or skin discolouration, can be challenging to treat as there are multiple triggers which have an impact on this condition. Melanin – the pigment responsible for giving skin it’s colour – is the cause for the brown, blotchy or uneven appearance which is there to protect our skin from damaging UV-radiation. Melanin is produced by melanocytes and located in the basal layer of the epidermis. These cells look like “octopus-like” tentacles called dendrites which push melanin granules to the skin cells (keratinocytes) when exposed to UV light. Melanocytes main function is to scatter UV lights, neutralise free radicals, protecting the skin cell membrane from oxidation and therefore also protecting DNA from UV damage. Within the skin cell tyrosinaseis a key enzyme which influences melanin synthesis, the reduction of tyrosinaseis the most prominent approach for the development of melanogenesis inhibitors
