Management of the epidermal melanin unit cross-talking pigmentation disorders are a big concern widely shared by most of the populations (Asian, African, Latin-American people). Amongst benign pigmentation disorders, some are stimulated by aging (freckles, lentigines and melasma) and stress (inflammatory hyperpigmentation).
Sederma is proud to offer a new solution to people wishing to reduce irregularities in pigmentation or to brighten their skin complexion. Based on a botanical, Wonderlight acts on both melanocytes and their associated keratinocytes to help lessen pigmentation disorders. It reduces the Epidermal Melanin Unit cross-talking and blocks the signaling pathways involved in the melanin synthesis. Wonderlight exhibits a stronger effect on hyper pigmented areas and equalises skin pigmentation in order to make them less visible.
The ability of Wonderlight to inhibit the UV inducted secretion of GM-CSF (important melanocyte stimulator) was demonstrated in vitro. The concept was validated on living human skin cultures (phototype III) in which the UVAB induced 2- fold increase in the number of melanocytes was totally inhibited in the presence of Wonderlight.
Wonderlight is preservative free and is approved for Japan.
