What is Truderma® Absolute Radiance Serum?
Truderma® Absolute Radiance Serum is used for melasma, acne-induced hyperpigmentation, brown spots, uneven skin tone, and dull complexion issues.
Truderma® Absolute Radiance Serum with Bio-active depigmenting concentrate is a powerful serum that reduces blemishes and scars. It helps in depigmenting the skin and imparts fairness. It also helps in improving the texture of the skin.
Diglucosyl Gallic Acid aka Brightenyl, Tri Hydroxy Benzoic acid alpha-Glucosides. A biotechnologically created molecule that is activated by the skin’s microbiome (the massive amount of microorganisms living in symbiosis with the skin) to act as a skin-brightening, anti-inflammatory, and photo-protectant ingredient.
Once applied to the skin, THBG is partially converted by the skin microbiome into THBA (Tri Hydroxy Benzoic Acid – a natural inhibitor of the melanin-producing enzyme, tyrosinase), and the two molecule act in synergy to control the skin color. The duo is claimed to work on 7 (!) levels, from acting as antioxidants (inhibit ROS production and preventing UV induced DNA damage), to being anti-inflammatory (decrease vasodilation and redness, reduce inflammation), to blocking the melanin-creating process in multiple ways (control MITF gene, hinder melanin transfer to top skin layers, and block melanin synthesis even under UV conditions).
As for proof, the manufacturer published a pretty well-designed, double-blind, 12-week-long study using 2% Brightenyl on 20 Korean women. They concluded that “THBG controls skin tone via the inhibition of melanin synthesis as well as the modulation of skin brightness, yellowness, and redness.” They also included nice before and after photos that show visible skin tone improvement and spot fading (but do not expect magic, pigmentation did not disappear, only faded somewhat).
Niacinamide aka Vitamin B3, Nicotinamide. Active cell-communicating ingredient, skin brightening, anti-acne, moisturizer/humectant. A multi-functional skincare superstar with several proven benefits for the skin. Great anti-aging, a wrinkle-smoothing ingredient used at 4-5% concentration. Fades brown spots alone or in combination with amino sugar, acetyl glucosamine. Increases ceramide synthesis that results in a stronger, healthier skin barrier and better skin hydration. Can help to improve several skin conditions including acne, rosacea, and atopic dermatitis
Allantoin is a super soothing ingredient. It can be found naturally in the roots & leaves of the comfrey plant, but more often than not what’s in cosmetic products is produced synthetically. It’s not only soothing but also skin-softening and protecting and can promote wound healing.
Alpha-Arbutin is an optical isomer of naturally occurring arbutin (or beta-arbutin). Just like its sibling, alpha-arbutin is also a skin-brightening, depigmenting agent.
