KEY INGREDIENTS OF CAROFIT ULTRA KOJIC ACID 2%, LACTIC ACID 10% & ARBUTIN 1% CREAM
Kojic Acid 2%: while dark circles under the eyes are generally not harmful to your health, they are a frequent cosmetic concern for many people. Not only are these under eye circles aesthetically unpleasant, but they can also add years to your appearance or make you look tired or unhealthy. Kojic acid 2% is an increasingly popular treatment for this skin condition.
Kojic acid is a natural skin-whitening agent that was originally identified in Asia as a component of Japanese rice wine (sake). Kojic acid is naturally produced by various species of fungi, including Penicillium, Acetobacter and Aspergillus. It is also artificially produced biologically through a process of fermentation, hence its name Kojic which is derived from the Japanese word Koji which means “culture”. It is widely used in treatments for pigmentary skin disorders.
Dark circles, which are medically referred to as infraorbital dark skin, are circular-shaped areas of dark discoloration that tend to form beneath the eyes. They are caused by allergies, heredity, pigmentation irregularities and the process of aging. Kojic acid 2% offers a natural alternative to more invasive medical treatments such as laser therapy and surgery in getting rid of dark circles. It is a widely used component in skin-bleaching products, serving as a biologically active skin-lightening agent.
The skin whitening properties of kojic acid work by hindering the process by which melanin is produced. Melanin is a natural skin pigment that is responsible for the color of a person’s skin. By reducing the amount of melanin that is produced, kojic acid gradually fades dark circles away. Although kojic acid 2% is generally equivalent to other treatments for dark circles such as Azelaic Acid, Hydroquinone and retinoids, it can be more irritating to your skin. Kojic acid may, however, be an effective alternative if you have trouble tolerating other first-line therapies.
Lactic Acid 10%: Concentrated and effective 10 percent Lactic Acid in Carofit Ultra Cream helps to reduce the appearance of dark skin patches. Lactic acid 10% gently promotes exfoliation, removing dead skin cells to reveal the bright, new skin underneath.
Arbutin 1%: Arbutin is a skin care ingredient that is derived from the leaves of the mulberry, cranberry and blueberry plants. It is considered to be the natural form of hydroquinone. Arbutin works with a similar mechanism as hydroquinone, by suppressing the production of excess melanin, it reduced melanin production by up to 40 percent. Bearberry is the more common name for arctostaphylos uva ursi leaf, an herb with numerous applications in natural medicine. Arbutin 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.
