Offering a two-pronged approach, geared towards prevention and whitening/lightening, to counter the issue of skin darkening, Lumineux Essence contains
1) a-Arbutin to effectively, safely and immediately reverse and control the darkening mechanism of the skin. While doing so, it also lightens the skin tone, reduces the congregation of melanin, freckles and spots to give skin a radiant glow and breathtaking fairness.
2) Tranexamic acid that inhibits tyrosinase and the activity of melanocytes. This works directly by preventing the darkening of freckles and spots, thus enhancing the skin’s light and glowing tone.
The 2% of a-Arbutin content in Lumineux Essence’s formulation is extracted from the bearberry plant and works by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in melanin production; whilst Tranexamic acid, a stable whitening agent, inhibits tyrosinase and melanocytes at the same time, thus effectively brightening and whitening skin tone. It is also highly effective in eliminating freckles and spots.
While it is a potent solution for achieving fairer, flawless skin, consumers are advise to avoid long term exposure to direct sunlight and ensure that sufficient sun protection is used daily to maximise its effect.
