Silab Launches Whitonyl for Skin Depigmentation

August 6, 2007

Brown spots result directly from chronic exposure to sunlight. These pigment disorders accentuate with age and are a considerable esthetic problem. Silab proposes an improved complexion with the launch of Whitonyl, its new biological concept of skin depigmentation. Rich in xylose and galactose from palmaria palmata, a red algae, Whitonyl limits melanogenesis by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase and the quantity of melanin synthesized; reduces the synthesis of the protein anchoring complex, indispensable for the transport of melanosomes to keratinocytes; inhibits the synthesis of Stem Cell Factor (SCF) thereby controlling photo-induced pigmentation. It is recommended for all lightening and depigmenting face and body care products.
