AFA BRIGHTENING GEL For Hyperpigmentation and Age spots
AFA Brightening Gel, designed to be used on the
hands, face or body, is a new generation facial brightener which
contains ingredients that work synergistically to target both
the cause and visible effects of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
AFA Brightening Gel restores clarity and radiance to uneven
skin tone caused by age spots and pigmentation in a formulation
proven to be effective for all skin types and colors.
Overview of Key Ingredients
AFAs are a unique, patented formulation based on the bodys
same natural acidic amino acids which serve to retain moisture
in human skin. AFAs contain potent antioxidants and effect
a dynamic improvement in pigmentation by exfoliating the epidermis
without the irritation commonly associated with other acids.
Asafetida is produced by extracting the resin in water and glycols
from the root of the plant, Ferula foetida. Asafetida Extract
exhibits strong in vitro anti-tyrosinase activity, which reduces
or blocks melanin production, resulting in an even skin tone
and helps promote skin lightening.
Cause of Hyperpigmentation
In the skin (1)melanocytes continuously produce
melanosomes; the (2)melanosomes convert tyrosine to melanin,
giving skin its color. Under the stimulus of hormones, sun,
or irritation, the (3) production of melanosomes increases,
resulting in hyperpigmentation
Tyrosinase is the enzyme responsible for the initial
conversion steps in the synthesis of melanin
The most common means of minimizing pigmentation
is to reduce the activity of the enzyme, tyrosinase, which can
be accomplished by blocking the production of the enzyme, inhibiting
tyrosinase activity, or preventing the uptake of tyrosinase
by the melanosomes
Decreasing the amount of tyrosinase activity present,
or inhibiting the precursory steps, may result in an overall
reduction of melanogenesis
Addressing the Cause
Asafetida inhibits the precursory step, tyrosinase activity,
which is the initial conversion step in the synthesis of melanin,
which presents as hyperpigmentation.
The acidic amino acids in the AFA formulation exfoliate
the visible signs of hyperpigmentation and restore transparency
to dull, uneven skin tone.
