In order to explain the enzymatic processes that occur during the development of hyperpigmentation and irregular skin discoloration, a well-known phenomenon should help as an example:
When a sliced apple is exposed to the open air for some time, it turns brown. This natural oxidation process is caused by a clash of oxygen and an enzyme in the fruit. Similar to cosmetics with a skin lightening, regulating effect, there are also counteragents that inhibit the discoloration process of apple slices, for example lemon juice due to the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C. Skin discoloration can be caused by many factors, including UV rays, local inflammation in the skin, side effects of medication, certain herbal extracts and cosmetics.

The pigment cells located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis (melanocytes) produce an enzyme called tyrosinase. By absorbing oxygen, the enzyme transforms the amino acid tyrosine into melanin, the primary determinant of skin color. Tyrosinase activity can be significantly increased by exposure to the sun, which results in tanning – a protective mechanism by our skin.
All types of pigmentation, like freckles or age spots are usually perceived as unwelcome. The desire for an even and balanced complexion is great. To achieve lasting skin lightening or reduce hyperpigmentation, a regular and systematic skin care regimen is indispensable.
