Dark Spot Corrector Ingredients
Bearberry derives its name from the edible fruit, which is a favorite food for bears. The leaf extract inhibits the production of melanin pigment. It improves the appearance of age spots and dark skin areas. This is a popular ingredient in Asia to de-pigment the skin. In parts of Europe, Bearberry leaf extract is being used medicinally and is classified as a phyto-medicine.
Kojic acid (5-hydroxy-2-hydroxymethyl-4-pyrone) is a by-product of rice fermentation. It gently blocks skin pigmentation and thereby it reduces age spots and liver spots. The result is brighter skin and a more even skin tone.
Alpha-Arbutin (4- Hydroxyphenyl-α-D-glucopyranoside) reduces pigmentation by blocking the enzymatic oxidation of Tyrosine and Dopa (precursors of the pigment melanin). This ingredient is much safer than hydroquinone, which is often used in similar products. Alpha-Arbutin is a safer, more effective way to brighten skin for a more beautiful, even skin tone. It is also effective against age spots and liver spots.
Licorice Root contains two different compounds, which help to brighten skin. The result is a more even pigment distribution. Licorice root extract has long been used as a treatment for irritated and swollen skin. Recent studies suggest that Licorice root may be helpful in relieving eczema symptoms.
Niacinamide is the active form of vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 is a non-irritating ingredient that offers a number of benefits. In addition to improving skin moisturization, vitamin B3 can improve the appearance of photo-damaged skin.
How vitamin B3 works on skin is still unclear. However, studies suggest that vitamin B3 helps to improve skin tone and the number of hyper-pigmented areas on the skin (also called dark spots). In addition, vitamin B3 can stimulate collagen production and the production of ceramide. Ceramides are lipid compounds that are important for the functional and structural integrity of the skin barrier.
