Asian skin types have the distinction of being very sensitive to external attack. The sun is not the only cause of damage: pollution and the environment also play their part. Thus, the slightest external attack can provoke the appearance of dark patches, especially on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. The dark spots correspond to a hyperpigmentation of the skin which results from an excess of melanin, biological pigment at the origin of the skin coloration, distributed in an irregular way. The synthesis of the melanin is made from an amino acid, the tyrosine, catalysed by an enzyme, the tyrosinase. The tyrosine is transformed into DOPA, itself oxidized into dopaquinone. After several other chemical reactions (cyclisation, dehydrogenation, decarboxylation, and finally polymerization) there is creation of melanin.
Moreover, as a result of such an attack, the skin reacts by producing an excess of sebum, particularly responsible for black heads.
Nerola® Whitening Pearl Radiance – Pure White Cream is a high performance skin care product that has been specially designed for Asian skin. Its plant-based active ingredients act in synergy to lighten, brighten and unify the complexion, to nourish the skin and to regulate the production of sebum. The dilated pores are tightened, the skin is lightened and radiant. In addition, its fine emulsion is readily and easily absorbed into the epidermis. For greater efficiency, this cream has to be used as a complement to the Nerola® Whitening serum.
A unique formula, the “Nerola® Whitening Phytocomplex”, which combines harmless and high performance active ingredients for the skin, inhibits 50% of the tyrosinase activity (responsible of the production of melanin).
The active ingredients that contributes to this inhibition are:
- The licorice, the white mulberry and silver vine lighten and unify the skin thanks to their action of inhibiting melanin.
