Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream

Skinlite cream is made by reputable company Liva Healthcare. It is a topical skin cream containing a combination of salts that are used together to eliminate the chronic skin disorder melasma. Melasma is characterized by symmetrical, blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation caused by overproduction of melanin by the pigment-producing cells melanocytes. It is thought to have a genetic predisposition and may be triggered by various factors including sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone treatments, some toiletries, and hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone). The production of melanin is controlled by the enzyme tyrosine in melanocytes.

Skinlite 3-way skin whitening cream composition

Hydroquinone 2% in Skinlite cream is a tyrosinase inhibitor that inhibits the formation of melanin by melanocytes and thereby lightens the skin.

Tretinoin 0.025% in Skinlite cream is keratolytic with anti-inflammatory properties that work by binding to specific retinoic acid receptors in the nucleus of skin cells to regulate growth and differentiation, by enhancing skin epithelial cell proliferation and accelerating epithelial differentiation. Tretinoin in Skinlite cream also blocks the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinization and cornification) and increases the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting the growth of new skin cells. This process speeds up skin cell turnover which has the effect of lightening the skin.

Mometasone 0.1% in Skinlite cream is an anti-inflammatory component that works by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes; and also narrows and constricts causes blood vessels that have become dilated (widened) and leaky allowing other inflammatory cells into the skin to escalate the inflammatory response. This action of Mometasone in Skinlite cream reduces the risk of developing contact dermatitis that may be caused by hydroquinone and tretinoin. This combination of strong cosmeceutical components for the treatment of melasma has been found to provide better improvement than treatment with a single component.
