SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
“LUZ,” pronounced as
Tyrosinase and MC1-R are two indicators in the mechanism of melanocyte production and melanin deposition. With light and refreshing texture, this triple formula is designed to curb these two indicators to reduce the production and accumulation of melanin.
Potassium Methoxysalicylate 2%
It is a small compound that can deeply penetrate into skin and inhibit the viability of tyrosinase to decrease melanin production. It also upregulates the expression of Loricrin (a protein that plays a key role in keratinocyte reproduction), increases keratin metabolism, eliminates old melanocyte, and brightens the skin up effectively.
Tranexamic acid 2%
It inhibits the viability of protease (an enzyme that breaks down proteins and peptides); by doing so, it indirectly inhibits tyrosinase and reduces the viability of melanocyte cells. It also reduces inflammation, curbs melanocyte production, maintain the health of basal cells, and decrease the production of dark spots. Complementary effects would show if it is used with Potassium Methoxysalicylate. Side effects are rare.
It mainly consists of dextran and nonapeptide-1. Dextran is a type of polysaccharide with alleviating effects, commonly used in skincare products; nonapeptide-1 inhibits the amount of MC1-R and prevents melanocyte from overproduction.
