Counteracts the formation of spots and skin aging
Line against skin spots, acts on various levels: prevention of the appearance, protection from the sun, exfoliation of the skin to reduce the spots already present.
The exfoliating process allows:
EXFOLIATION OF THE EPIDERMIS STRATUM CORNEUM
The stratum corneum is the external layer of the skin and therefore is the most exposed to the effects of time. It generally thickens as the skin becomes mature, with a consequent alteration of colour incarnate (skin appears opaque and greyish) and appearance of skin spots.
INCREASE CELL TURNOVER
Chemical exfoliation process stimulates a rapid cell renewal, which helps to improve the physiological state of the skin (better oxygenation, elasticity and skin tone, with an improved synthesis of collagen and elastin).
SMOOTHNESS AND BRIGHTNESS OF SKIN
The elimination of the superficial skin layer and the exposure of the underlying cells make the skin smoother and more radiant.
ALPHA – HYDROXYACIDS (AHAS)
Exfoliation is obtained by a chemical peeling with alpha-hydroxyacids (AHAs), fruit acids whose chemical characteristics allow them to have a moisturizing effect at low concentration and an exfoliating activity at higher concentrations. The AHAs used in PHOTOWHITE products are effective molecules that produce a strong peeling without altering natural functionality and integrity of skin:
- Glycolic acid
- Mandelic acid
Specific products for skin aging and pigmentation
PHOTOWHITE offers a series of facial care treatments that act in a targeted way against skin aging and skin pigmentation. These are concentrated products based on a single functional substance or a combination of active ingredients, with effective action on the various skin imperfections:
- Skin aging
- Oxidative stress
- Loss of skin tone
- Cutaneous dyschromia
- Sebaceous hypersecretion
What is melanin?
Melanin is the main pigment of skin and hair. It’s synthesized starting from amino acid tyrosine through an oxidation and polymerization process (melanogenesis). Melanin synthesis can be blocked by inhibition of tyrosinase, enzyme that catalyses the first steps of melanogenesis. The inhibition of melanogenesis decreases the appearance of spots on the skin (caused by melanin accumulations), and general skin hyperpigmentation.
The effectiveness of PHOTOWHITE products is due to the synergy of various active ingredients that, acting with different mechanisms of action, contribute to inhibit the formation of melanin and prevent its migration to the epidermis.
