How does Meladerm® work?
Your skin color comes from a natural pigment called melanin. Melanin pigment is synthesized in specialized cytoplasmic organelles called melanosomes. Within the melanosome, the enzymatic conversion of the amino acid tyrosine to melanin is catalyzed by the enzyme tyrosinase. The melanosomes in darker portions of the skin are more active than those found in other areas of the body. Overactive melanosomes can also cause visible hyperpigmentation on the skin such as age spots, melasma, and other types of discolorations.
To reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, Meladerm® works by combining the well documented properties of the most effective skin brightening ingredients. Many of the active ingredients in the formula are derived from natural extracts such as Mulberry, Licorice and Bearberry plants. Civant Skin Care puts your safety above anything else. Our products contain absolutely no hydroquinone, mercury, steroids or other undesirable bleaching substances.
When combined with exfoliation agents, Meladerm® often provides initial improvement within 2-4 weeks of use. Full results generally take 2-3 months and will vary based on the individual’s skin type.
