Introduction

Technology for natural brightening of the skin for a beautiful complexion. SS LT helps skin appear brighter and more radiant. It aids with common skin conditions such as age spots, acne scars, and melasma. It delivers potent natural actives that visibly reduce the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation. This combination of natural hydroquinone alternatives create a powerful skin-brightening botanical blend for a luminous complexion.

How the Technology Helps You

SS LT consists of sub-micron spheres. The actives are encapsulated within the lipid core, which increases the stability of the actives used and can easily partition into the skin.

Unique Features

Functional Ingredients

Skin brighteners improve the skin by changing the reflection of light off the surface of the skin while improving skin tone. RESVERATROL, a potent, natural antioxidant stimulates this process causing lightening of the skin. The encapsulation is used to stabilize resveratrol, which normally oxidized rapidly.

ALPHA ARBUTIN, which is extracted from several different sources, such as mulberry, cranberry, and blueberry, is focused on the pigmentation cells in the skin and reduces their activity, which gives the skin a whiter-looking appearance. Alpha arbutin prevents the formation of tyrosinase, which is the enzyme that inhibits the synthesis of skin pigment melanin, the primary pigment responsible for skin color.2 The encapsulation of alpha arbutin enables transfer of the water soluble ingredient into a hydrophobic environment like the deeper layers of the skin, which enables faster results in 2-3 weeks.

Clinical Efficacy

Skin whitening treatments work by reducing the content of melanin of the skin. Alpha arbutin has shown superior performance in multiple clinical studies. After one month of topical application (n=80), arbutin at 1% loading in a lotion resulted in 340% of the lightening effect of hydroquinone compared to the 240% provided by the Kojic Acid.).

The efficacy of arbutin compared to kojic acid and hydroquinone in a one month study with 80 human subjects.

Luxury Lotion Formula

SS LT can be formulated into most types of lotions. Always add at the end and mix gently at room temperature (25°C). The following is an example of a lotion formula. One can strengthen the brightening effect with additional SalSphere® Resveratrol (SS RE) or SalSphere® Clear Skin (SS CS).
