  • Clinical data

    Lactobionic acid & gluconolactone

    1. Restoring pH balance. The interaction of gluconolactone with skin begins once it was applied, affecting the acid mantle. The enzyme activity depends on the pH balance that may be disrupted by hostile environment, make-up, skin care or pathology. The gentle influence of gluconolactone helps to achieve proper pH level restoring pH balance and a proper skin renewal process.


    Hexyl resorcinol

    Resorcinol is a natural compound extracted from cereal, the hexyl resorcinol is a stable form less irritant and more effective for skin care products.

    • 4 times more effective than hydroquinone working by modulating multiple sites in the melanogenesis pathway. A product containing 0,5% of hexyl resorcinol is comparable to a 2% hydroquinone treatment without the associated side effects. It is effective on pigmented spots, skin tone and roughness.
    • It has also a protective effect against oxidative DNA damage induced by hydrogen peroxide. This result is attributed to increase levels of glutathione, and stimulation of antioxidant defence enzymes (glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase.
