Skin pigmentation problems
Historically man has tried to modify his own skin pigmentation with
make-up being a temporary solution.
Heavily pigmented phenotypes sometimes wish to lighten their skin.
White, red-haired or darker phenotypes look for ways to attenuate
or remove certain hyperpigmentations.
Skin tone key age indicator
Recent research revealed that skin tone and luminosity are key indicators
to the perception of age.
Facial skin colour distribution or tone appears to add or subtract
as much as 20 years to a womans appearance by brightening
the overall complexion.
Cumulative UV damage such as freckles, thread veins (vascularization)
can all affect the contrast of skin tone and luminosity and we recognise
these as signs of ageing and hence attractiveness.
Cumulative UV damage influences skin dramatically, which is a major
reason for taking precautionary action.
It is possible to correct or minimise damage causing uneven skin
A unique modern approach to Skin Lightening
Taking a fresh look at Skin Lightening provides some
interesting new actives and considers which pathways lead to hyperpigmentation.
A truly modern solution needs a combination of ingredients.One is
the anti-ageing specific ingredient, the other is a skin brightening

the result is a range of products meeting all skin tone problems.

Rosehip oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F) also
known as essential fatty acids (EFA), and when they are absorbed
through the skin, they convert to prostaglandins (PGE), which are
involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration.
Rosehip oil contains trans-retinoic acid, which is responsible for
skin rejuvenation and quickens healing. It repairs skin subjected
to excessive sunlight and resultant photo ageing.
The linoleic and linolenic acids in rosehip oil have been shown
to reduce pigmentation of the skin and when used regularly it has
