Whitening agents have historically used hydroquinone and kojic acid, which have been shown to be cytotoxic. Alternately, botanical extracts of Mulberry or Licorice Root contain unstable tyrosinase inhibiting flavinoids, causing tyrosine to hyper-pigment (oxidize and darken skin). Newer botanicals have eliminated this anti-tyrosinase activity, having selected Synerlight from the French company LIbiol for our brightening component. Containing Sophora Flavescens (from a tree in China) and Kiwi Root (Actinidia Chinesis), it targets specific pigmentation problems and have produced 94% equivalent effectiveness of kojic acid (without toxicity). Using a modified version of our Mango Cream base, it includes 5 natural oils of Avocado, Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Olive and Sunflower. Shea and Mango Butters along with Aloe, Vitamin E and Cucumber extracts, enrich the skin and can be used as a daily moisturizer.
