Clair Blanche is a near natural whitening complex derived from extracts of globally acclaimed rare flowers like peony, scutellaria and saxifraga known for their skin lightening, brightening and whitening properties combined ingredients like glutathione, Arbutin, Kojic Acid and N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine.
The skin benefits of Clair Branche can be summarized under the following categories:
UV Absorption: When the melanocyte is activated (responsible for the release of skin darkening element melanin) by sunlight / UV, inflammation and pigmentation result. UV not only stimulates melanocyte directly but also causes harm to the skin through active oxygen, DNA damage, inflammatory substances, and others.
Inhibition of IL-1α Activity: When the skin is exposed to UV, IL-1α, a cytokine which induces inflammation, is released from the keratinocytes in the epidermis. IL-1α then stimulates keratinocyte-endothelin release.
Inhibition of Tyrosinase Activity: In the melanocytes, tyrosine is metabolized (by mediation of tyrosinase) and melanin is generated. The inhibition of tyrosinase activity is one of the main methods of skin whitening.
Inhibition of Auto-oxydation-polymerization of Melanin and Reductive De-colorizing Action:
Of the above reactions, when DOPA-quinone changes Eu-melanin via Leuco DOPA-chrome, they react by auto-oxydation; black colored melanin is produced at first.
Anti-Oxidation: After melanin has been produced, melanin polymer becomes larger through oxidation.
Repairing of DNA damage caused by UV: When people are exposed to UV, there is a risk of DNA damage. If damaged DNA is not repaired, abnormalities may result.
Promotion of Pheo-melanin Production
Inhibition of Melanin Production
Cell Proliferation: As people grow old, the speed of skin turn over becomes slower. Clair Blanche Whitening Complex promotes cell proliferation.
