What is Gluteq® Intra-Oral Spray?
Gluteq® Intra-Oral Spray reverses the melanin’s metabolism turning dark-colored eumelanin to pheomelanin which is a light pigment. Gluteq® sublingual oral spray eliminates the first-pass effect of the liver, has better bioavailability, hence higher efficacy. It achieves the highest absorption through the intraoral delivery method. Gluteq® has a long nozzle for better delivery of drugs and ensures accuracy. There is no after-taste and for best results, it is suggested to use regularly for at least 3-4 months. Please consult your doctor prior to using this solution and avoid using it during pregnancy or lactation.
- Skin lightening, skin brightening, skin whitening
- Melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Benefits of the active components of Gluteq® Intra-Oral Spray
L-Glutathione – is a master antioxidant, detoxifier, and tyrosinase inhibitor. Glutathione is a tripeptide made up of three amino acids – cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine, and is found naturally in many fruits, vegetables, and meats. Higher doses of Glutathione show skin lightening as well as age-defying effects. It is produced in the human liver and plays a key role in intermediary metabolism, immune response, and health. When glutathione is taken in a higher dosage, the pathway of melanin is altered and is proven to reverse the melanin’s metabolism turning dark pigmentations (eumelanin) into light pigmentations (phaeomelanin) by inhibiting and blocking the Tyrosinase enzyme.
Continuous and consistent supplementation will result in gradual skin lightening. Its dosage and results depend upon body weight as well as the color of skin for eg. results visible on light-medium brown skin: 1-3 months, dark brown skin: 3-6 months, very dark skin: 6-12 months & black skin: 18 months minimum and above. A glutathione efficacy in skin lightening works only if it is taken with Vitamin C at least equal to or twice its dosage. The standard dosage is 20-40 mg/kg of body weight for 3-6 months once or twice in a day and best if taken at night 2-3 hours after the last meal for better absorption.
L-Glutathione gives skin a radiant glow, controls acne and prevents acne marks, defies the aging process, protect skin from the sun and environmental damages, lighten skin color, pigmentation, tan, freckles, anti-aging (anti-wrinkle) – make skin smooth, fresh and radiant, hasten the healing of wounds and nourishes the skin.
Vitamin C – promotes collagen production. This is a great post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation vitamin for sun-damaged skin with sunspots. Vitamin C helps your skin produce more collagen while inhibiting the formation of melanin. Since hyperpigmentation is so difficult to eliminate altogether, it’s important that you use the very best vitamins/supplements on your delicate skin to help fade and prevent future sunspots.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is an incredibly important quality that plays a role in combating dark spots. In addition, Vitamin C has excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Vitamin C helps to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase, which helps to prevent melanin production. Plus, it significantly lightens pigmentation but does not lighten normal skin. Vitamin C is one of your most valued elements for healthy, glowing skin. If you struggle with hyperpigmentation, Vitamin C is your best bet for fading current sunspots and preventing further incidents of hyperpigmentation.
Cranberry Extract – is full of arbutin is one of the most widely prescribed skin-lightening and de-pigmenting agents worldwide. Arbutin, the b-D-glucopyranoside derivative of hydroquinone, is a naturally occurring plant-derived compound found in the dried leaves of a number of different plant species including, bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), blueberry, cranberry, and pear trees. Arbutin inhibits tyrosinase activity competitively but at non-cytotoxic concentrations in a dose-dependent manner in cultured melanocytes. It also inhibits melanosome maturation and is less cytotoxic to melanocytes than hydroquinone. Although higher concentrations may be more efficacious, a greater risk for paradoxical hyperpigmentation exists. Arbutin is less effective than kojic acid for hyperpigmentation.
Cranberries’ extract high antioxidant content is essential for protecting skin against damaging environmental stressors. Cranberries are incredibly high in polyphenols and Vitamins C and E, which effectively fight free radicals to minimize the visible signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity. Vitamin C, in particular, is crucial to the production of collagen – a protein that helps skin retain its strength, firmness, and “bounce”. Since our bodies lost the ability to manufacture Vitamin C millions of years ago, dietary and topical Vitamin C is our only source of this essential nutrient.
Alfalfa Extract – aka Medicago Sativa, is an amazing source of essential phytonutrients, including vitamins A, B, D, E, and K, chlorophyll, polyphenols, amino acids, biotin, and a plethora of skin-loving minerals. It’s also packed with antioxidants that battle the oxidative stress that occurs from free radicals going rampant in the skin. Free radicals are generated from both internal and external factors – including too much sun exposure, pollution, cigarette smoke, fried food, and even your own intrinsic stress. These aggressors cause what’s known as “cellular destabilization,” which leads to signs of aging, like sagging skin, fine lines, rough texture, and hyperpigmentation.
Because Alfalfa is rich in antioxidants that ward off free radicals, it’s an excellent ingredient to add to your skincare routine. Not only will it stave off premature signs of aging, but it will also aid in easing redness and irritation due to its high concentration of nourishing vitamins and minerals. Additionally, it’s completely safe for all skin types – even those with ultra-sensitive complexions.
