WHAT IS BAN A TAN® ALL-NATURAL SKIN DEPIGMENTING CREAM
Ban A Tan Cream made by reputable Curatio Pharma, is a natural skin lightening and tan removal solution for your face and body (underarm and bikini zones whitening). Ban A Tan Cream’s organic ingredients act on the skin cells as a depigmentation cream (Hydroquinone). It contains Alpha Arbutin 1%, Lumiskin, Licoric and Mulberry Exptract 1% with Cosmoperine 1%. Use twice a day for better results.
Hydroquinone’s sister molecule as Arbutin (Bearberry Extract), which is the active substance in bearberry extract. Bearberry is the more common name for arctostaphylos uva ursi leaf, an herb with numerous applications in natural medicine. Ingredient labels on creams containing this substance may identify it as either bearberry extract, uva ursi leaf extract or simply arbutin. Like mitracarpus scaber extract, bearberry extract has been marketed as a safer alternative to hydroquinone. Alpha-Arbutin is a biosynthetic active ingredient that is pure, water-soluble and is manufactured in a powder form. As one of the most advanced skin lightening ingredients on the market, it has been shown to work effectively on all skin types. It is the epimer of arbutin, and research has proven that it has a stronger inhibitory action than that of (beta) arbutin. Though it is a very expensive ingredient to manufacture, even at very low concentrations, a-arbutin has shown to inhibit the activity of tyrosinase. Alpha Arbutin’s inhibitory mechanism is different from that of arbutin and can be up to 10 times more effective. The a-glucosidic bond found in alpha Arbutin offers higher stability and efficancy than the B form found in the related Beta-Arbutin. This leads to a skin whitening active that acts faster and more efficiently than existing single components.
Lumiskin® is a solution of diacetyl-boldine and caprylic/capric triglycerides that inhibit the activity of tyrosinase. It is used for its skin lightening properties. Diacetyl Boldine (DAB) works well via a-adrenergic antagonist receptors and calcium flow regulation. This product is recommended for use in skin lightening products. Lumiskin is recommended for use in emulsions, soaps and make-up products with lightening or whitening properties.
Consistent use of licorice extract over time has been known to fade dark spots and blemishes, and lighten skin. It can also reverse darkening of scars, which are fibrous skin tissues that remain when an injury hasn’t completely healed. Licorice extract is also a good natural substitute for hydroquinone, which causes adverse reactions in some users. An ingredient called glabridin helps reduce uneven skin darkening — also known as hyper pigmentation — caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Glabridin is an active ingredient containing five flavonoids that act to depigment, or lighten, skin while blocking an enzyme that causes damaged skin to darken. The licorice plant serves many purposes in skin care. The ingredient that is responsible for the skin whitening aspect of the plant is known as glabridin. Glabridin inhibits pigmentation by preventing tyrosinase activation. Studies have shown that it can provide a considerable skin brightening effect while remaining non-toxic to the melanin forming cells. Glabridin is found in very small traces and therefore it is important to ensure that the correct part of the licorice plant is used. Licorice’s anti-inflammatory properties (due to ihibition of superoxide anion production and cyclooxygenase activity) also make it a very popular ingredient in the skin care industry.
Cosmoperine® is Tetrahydropiperine (THP), prepared from piperine (found in black pepper and long pepper) by a patented proprietary process. It acts as a penetration enhancer, increasing the absorption of drugs and nutrients through the skin. Cosmetic active ingredients have enhanced permeation, enhancing their effectiveness. Its use in improving the skin penetration of active compounds is also covered by the patent. This product is non-irritating to the skin, GMO free.
