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.
