The accumulation of melanin is responsible for your skins’ unique shade. This pigment also acts as a natural sunscreen - absorbing certain amounts of UVR and protecting you from sun damage. Due to its regenerative properties, The Cream helps kickstart the skin into repair mode by unlocking the body’s innate healing code, orchestrating the skin cells to restore themselves.
A higher production of melanin can also occur when we’re subject to excessive sun exposure, hormonal imbalances, and the aging process. The overproduction of melanin is known as hyper-pigmentation and results in the pigment being deposited in the surface epidermis and the deeper, dermis layer too. It’s caused by the inflammation of the skin cell which in turn produces extra pigment during the healing process.
Hyper-pigmentation can also occur after a breakout, when the skin is aggravated by extra touching or picking, leaving red or dark brown marks on the skin which seem impossible to eradicate or lighten. The Cream works by helping the skin cells return to their optimum healthy function, ensuring pigment isn’t being overproduced. The Vitamin E in The Cream can also help diminish the appearance of dark spots, while the antioxidants help keep free radicals at bay.
*User trials found that 79% agree that skin discoloration is diminished, and skin tone is more even.
Model Louisa Northcote has seen a notable reduction of hyper-pigmentation on her acne scars: “The scarring on my cheeks isn’t as red and the active spots are definitely less red using this cream,” she says.
