Melavoid Available at Centerchem

January 29, 2013

Provital’s Melavoid, which helps to treat and prevent skin coloration irregularities, according to the company, is now available at Centerchem, the exclusive North American distributor of the ingredient. In vivo clinicals on a panel of Asian volunteers showed how Melavoid decreased the skin pigmentation intensity resulting in a lighter, more uniform complexion. It also reduced the number and intensity of hyperpigmentation spots of various origins.

Melavoid is extracted from the roots of Borhaavia diffusa, rich in boeravinone B, the molecule that binds to PPAR inhibiting the synthesis of melanin in its previous phases.
