Biolumitá® - Triple-action for more luminous-looking skin07/20/2016
Biolumitá® is a powerful skin lightening agent that can also be used to balance uneven skin tones. Extracted from the rhizome of the Chinese Ginger plant (Alpina officinarium), it is rich in galangin, a compound from the flavonoid group. Biolumitá acts throughout the skin's natural three-step pigmentation process:
1. Production of melanosomes: Biolumitá® works to reduce the production of endothelin-l, a peptide involved in the formation of melanosomes and essential to melanogenesis – the synthesis of melanin in its interior.
2. Melanogenesis: Biolumitá® reduces the transcription of tyrosinase and TRP-1, essential enzymes in the production of melanin.
3. Melanosomes transport: Biolumitá® reduces the production of adrenomedullin, a mediator that stimulates the melanocyte dendricity, compromising the transport of melanosomes to the keratinocytes, essential to the completion of the skin pigmentation process.
