A lot of commercial products like face serums and topical creams are available in the market containing kojic acid, arbutin, hydroquinone, azelaic acid, and tranexamic acid which claims to be a solution for hyperpigmentation. However, they are skin-lightening/ bleaching agents that inhibit the production of melanin and hence lighten the skin tone. In medical terms, this is known as tyrosinase activity.
These actives lighten the appearance of dark patches and skin around the pigmented area in a certain percentage so eventually, the skin and the pigmented area are lightened however there will always be the same difference in the pigmented area and normal skin tone so eventually the hyperpigmentation still exists (though in a lighter tone).
So what is the actual and better solution for Hyperpigmentation? The answer is, Marine Biology!
TheDewySkin is one of the first brands in India to offer skincare powered with marine bio-actives. A high-performance skincare range powered with marine algae extracts proven to show visible results in 28 days (when used regularly morning & night). Our serum is formulated with amber microalgae extract known to brighten up and even-tone skin, significantly reducing blemishes, tanning, age spots, and pigment spots on continuous use. It also contains salicylic acid that gently exfoliates the skin and allows better penetration of serum to the deeper layers, also clears acne, pores, blackheads, and whiteheads. Vitamin B5 and Allantoin moisturize skin and improve overall texture.
In a double-blind IN-VITRO study with 30 volunteers mainly females between 18 and 65 years, it was found that bioactives from microalgae were clinically proven to lighten the pigmented spots without affecting the natural skin tone in 28 days (when used with an SPF/Sunblock afterward).
Did you know? Microalgae (which is a type of Marine plant) created the air that we breathe today and established the foundations for superior life.
