Phyto Botanical Gel:
A botanical gel formulation to assist in the treatment of pigmentation, the evening of skin tone and skin irritation. This gel also has hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. Skin lightening and depigmentation properties are achieved through the use of kojic acid, alpha-arbutin and uva-ursi. Kojic acid and Alpha Arbutin inhibit the production of tyrosine which is the enzyme responsible for the first step in melanin production. Uva Ursi helps to lighten pigmentation, including sun and age spots.
Retinol helps to increase skin cell turnover, helping to shed off pigmented cells, when new skin cells are formed, they will be more evenly pigmented. Retinol also reduces the appearance of sun-induced dark spots by inhibiting the activity of tyrosine, an enzyme that stimulates melanin production in the skin.
Sunscreen is hugely important in preventing hyperpigmentation. Your skin cells respond to UV light by producing more melanin as a self-protective mechanism. Wearing sunscreen daily helps to keep your skin cells protected and prevent the over production of melanin.
Apply 2-3 drops of Phyto Botanical Gel to cleansed skin and allow to absorb. This lightweight serum can be used before moisturisers.
Apply sunscreen as the last step in your skincare routine on a daily basis.
Apply 1-2 pumps of Retinol 1% to cleansed skin. If drying occurs, just cut down on use.
