Apis Professional Brightening Face Algae Mask Reducing Discolouration 200g
For skin with discolouration in need of lightening.
The Algae Mask is combination of two innovative, natural complexes: Melavoid™ and Darkout™ .Both have brightening effect on the skin.
It reduces the synthesis of melanin produced by melanocytes, visibility reduces age-related dark spots, discolouration, freckles and other disorders of pigmentation.
Enriched with extracts from grapefruit and cucumber, it reduces redness, moisturises and smooths skin.
Complexion recovers even tone and healthy, fresh appearance.
Melavoid™ – is an extract obtained from the roots of Boerhaavia diffusa. Active ingredient which has brightening properties, affects the initial mechanism of pigmentation, regulates melanogenesis, settles skin colour and reduces the visibility of spots. It reduces the amount of synthesized pigment because of melanocytes by 34%, not affecting their viability. Due to PPARγ, Melavoid™ activation, it modulates expression of melanocytic genes. Melavoid™ has recognised efficacy and an acceptable level of safety, reducing both synthesis and activity of the tyrosinase enzyme and formation of the melanin itself, without affecting vivacity of dermal melanocytes. In addition, in vivo studies have confirmed that it lightens the skin colour in a balanced and uniform way, differentiating between the skin with or without discolouration. Melavoid™ also reduces the number of spots, resulting from various hypopigmentation.
Darkout™ – this is a purified extract from Hypoxis Rooperi bulbs. It settles skin colour and helps to brighten the skin and makes it more radiant. It is an ideal active substance, having brightening properties, which reduces the synthesis of melanin by synergistic reduction of tyrosine activity and inhibition of expression of tyrosine. In addition, due to the antioxidant activity and increasing collagen synthesis, it can be successfully used in cosmetics protecting against the photo-ageing of the skin.
Grapefruit extract – is rich in vitamins B, C, E, P. It has antibacterial properties and helps to tighten and tone the skin.
Cucumber extract – smooths, gently lightens the epidermis discolorations, has anti-inflammatory and tensing properties.
