USING THESE SKIN WHITENING BOOSTERS
Adding any of theses skin whitening actives to your current skin bleaching cream will give them a major boost in whitening powder. Ferulic Acid is added to intensify & preserve the other active ingredients. A small amount of citric acid is added to all packs to further preserve the actives after they are mixed. the Vitamin-C + Hesperidin pack is like a ‘super Lemon’.
VITAMIN-C SKIN WHITENING
L-Ascorbic acid (vitamin-C) is a potent antioxidant chemical that is used topically in dermatology to treat and prevent photo-ageing & hyper-pigmentation. Vitamin-C evens skin tone; smooths rough textured skin; removes fine lines & wrinkles; removes acne scars. With continued topical & oral use, vitamin-C can help prevent dark spots from forming in the first place. Because vitamin-C is unstable and difficult to absorb into the dermis in the optimum dosage, stable liposomal compounds of Vitamin-C have been created to enhance the delivery of Vitamin C into the dermis. Vitamin-C is essential for collagen & elastin biosynthesis, and it is also an anti-inflammatory. There are whitening agents that interrupt key steps of melanogenesis (melanin production), Vitamin-C is one of those particular depigmenting agents. Tyrosinase converts the amino acid tyrosine into eumelanin/pheomelanin, the pigments that gives your skin its color. Vitamin-C whitens skin by interacting with copper ions at the tyrosinase-active site and inhibits action of the enzyme tyrosinase, thereby decreasing melanin formation. Vitamin-C also acts on perifollicular pigment. Oral vitamin-C alone diminishes the hyperpigmentation around your hair pores, and the dark bumps that result from Keratosis Pilaris. Your body requires vitamin C in all stages of wound healing. Applying vitamin-C to a healing wound will speed up healing and reduce scarring. Because vitamin-C is highly acidic, when it is used topically the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are both naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm. This is also how vitamin-C is able to prevent premature ageing.
VITAMIN C EXPLAINED
Ferulic Acid: Ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant naturally found in the cell wall of plants including bran and certain fruit seeds where it helps to protect and preserve. In skincare, it does the same: protects & preserves. Applied topically, ferulic acid can protect against free radicals and help with skin rejuvenation. Ferulic Acid diminishes fine lines and wrinkles; strengthens and firms skin. Ferulic acid works in synergy with other potent antioxidants. It not only stabilizes highly oxidative vitamin-C, it actually intensifies the efficacy of vitamin-C and other antioxidants. According to the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, “Ferulic acid alone (and vitamins C and E) provides partial protection but vitamins C, E and ferulic acid [altogether] provide virtually complete protection.”

Hesperidin: Also known as lemon peel extract or orange peel extract, Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid with high concentration in citrus fruits (more specifically in the actual peels of lemons & oranges). In addition to its well-known benefits for cardiovascular function (spider/varicose veins treatments), type II diabetes, and anti-inflammation, recent studies have demonstrated multiple benefits of hesperidin for cutaneous functions. Including wound healing, UV protection, anti-inflammation, antimicrobial, anti-skin cancer, and skin lightening. In addition, hesperidin enhances epidermal permeability barrier homeostasis in both normal young & aged skin. The mechanisms by which hesperidin benefits cutaneous functions are attributable to its antioxidant properties, inhibition of MAPK-dependent signaling pathways, and stimulation of epidermal proliferation, and lipid production. Hesperidin can be taken as an oral supplement also. [Source #1, Source #2, Source #3, Source #4]
Vanillic Acid: Vanillic acid is extracted from the seeds of the vanilla bean. Vanillic acid is a potent anti-oxidant & tyrosinase-inhibitor said to be stronger than both vitamin-c (ascorbic acid) and kojic acid. Vanillic acid is highly stable, compared to vitamin-c and kojic acid, against heat & oxidation. Vanillic acid is usually added to herbal skin whiteners as a co-whitener to intensify their whitening efficacy. Being a strong antioxidant and free radical scavenger, vanillic acid can contribute to skin protection from damaging action of free radicals that are formed under UV and premature skin aging. Vanillic acid has been shown to have good penetration for the epidermis and dermis upon topical application. [Source #1, Source #2, Source #3,].

Pterostilbene:(trans-3,5-dimethoxy-4-hydroxystilbene) is a natural dietary compound and the primary antioxidant component of blueberries. Pterostilbene is a more potent form of resveratrol, it is about four times easier to absorb into the skin than resveratrol. Which makes Pterostilbene much more effective than regular resveratrol. At only 0.4% Pterostilbene whitens skins and removes darkspots. Pterostilbene is also a mild UV sunscreen like resveratrol.

Aloin & Aloesin: It’s been proven through scientific studies that chemicals present in Aloe Vera have skin whitening properties. The chemicals are Aloesin and Aloin. Which are also anthraquinones (quinones bleach skin). These chemicals eliminate darkspots & hyperpigmentation by destroying excess melanin and also keeping the skin from producing excess melanin in the future. To be specific, Aloin focuses on destroying the melanin in pigmented skin cells (darkspots/redspots/melasma) while the Aloesin keeps the skin from producing additional melanin. This combined effect significantly reduces hyperpigmentation & whitens skin.
