What is Hyperpigmentation?

 Whether it’s from postpartum melasma or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne, it’s annoying to see those dark pigmented patches on your face. In the deepest layers of our skin we all have cells called melanocytes, these are natural cells that give our skin its color. However when inflammation and other stressors affect them excess of melanin is produced resulting in uneven skin complexion and hyperpigmentation.  "Lets talk about a few ingredients that work great at inhibiting and lightening up stubborn hyperpigmentation."  

Turmeric Root has been used for centuries for it’s beautification abilities. Turmeric contains “curcumin” this enzyme inhibits tyrosinase this is the enzyme that’s responsible for producing melanin in our skin. Kojic acid on the other hand is sourced from mushrooms. Kojic acid works by inhibiting the UV activation of tyrosinase enzyme. These two ingredients combined have antimicrobial and antiinflammatory properties which also help fight off acne bacteria. 

Lactic acid is a gentle chemical exfoliant. It is derived from lactose by fermentation. It belongs to alpha hydroxyl acid family. It help increase cell turnover in the skin and helps to slough of dead skin cells, resulting in brighter and smoother skin complexion. Turmeric & Kojic Acid Soap  is a gentle but very effective cleanser that hydrates, smooths, exfoliates and preps the skin for your moisturizer. The star of the show is Brightening Cream this moisturizer is slowly infused in turmeric root, licorice root and lemon peel than kojic acid is added to 100% aloe vera base for extra healing benefits.
