Skin Brightening Treatment - Tyrosinase Inhibitor

What causes melanin? Tyrosinase Enzymes. Tyrosinase is an enzyme that plays a crucial role in the synthesis of melanin, the pigment responsible for the colour of our skin, hair, and eyes. Tyrosinase is found in specialised cells called melanocytes, which are located in the skin, hair follicles, eyes, and inner ear. 

Normal activity of Tyrosinase will maintain the balance of melanin production, which actually helps to protect against UV radiation. However when this enzyme is operating in dysfunction and is over active, it can lead to excessive pigmentation and hyperpigmentation. 

To treat this over production of melanin in the skin we need to include a pigmentation treatment that is part of a product’s formula. This is an ingredient called a Tyrosinase Inhibitor, and is a very popular skin brightening treatment.

The ultimate skin brightening treatment!

Tyrosinase Inhibitors can help to lighten any dark spots and uneven skin tone by blocking the enzyme’s activity (the enzyme that creates pigment), and in turn reducing the production of melanin. This ingredient is really effective at reducing melasma, age spots, and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
