Confidently beautiful: Combating skin pigmentation concerns

Hello there!

Today we are here to dig into skin's unique color - referred to as skin pigmentation. Skin pigmentation refers to how much melanin is produced by the body that can eventually affect the color of the skin. Did you know that it is a result of the marvelous melanin – a pigment that the body produces. Melanocytes, situated in the outermost layer of your skin known as the epidermis, are the artists behind this masterpiece. They craft two distinct types of melanin: eumelanin and pheomelanin, each with its own role in the skin's symphony of shades.

Scientific information

According to skin specialists, our skin is protected from harmful sunburns by eumelanin which has the ability to absorb hazardous rays from the sun. Hence, the higher the levels of eumelanin, darker is the skin tone. Additionally, eumelanin also has the ability to prevent skin cancer. Whereas, pheomelanin is a yellowish-red tint which does not absorb UV rays. Therefore, people with lighter skin tones experience higher levels of pheomelanin, and can be more prone to skin damage and sunburns.

Although we can't eliminate pigmentation entirely, we can mitigate its impact on our skin through the adoption of a healthy skincare regimen. Formulator Sample Shop is here to support you, introducing a selection of new and exclusive ingredients that have the potential to enhance your skin's radiance.

Let us go through them, shall we?

Retinol works its wonders by turbocharging the skin's cellular turnover. It is like hitting the refresh button, making your skin renew itself faster. This, in turn, thickens the top layer of skin by stimulating the growth of keratinocytes – the skin cells responsible for maintaining that youthful glow. But wait, there's more! Retinol also has a knack for boosting the expression of essential proteins and molecules like CRABP II, CRBP, mRNAs, and structural proteins. This dynamic combo reduces the appearance of pesky wrinkles, fortifies your skin, and slows down the breakdown of collagen, leaving you with firmer and more elastic skin. Also, if you've got those sun-induced brown spots (we've all been there), retinol can help fade them away, evening out the complexion and giving you a radiant and translucent glow on skin.
