Pigmentation Be Gone By Azelaic, Phytic & Ferulic Acid

Pigmentation Be Gone By Azelaic, Phytic & Ferulic Acid

These dark spots of bother are known as pigmentation, caused by sun exposure and specifically the UVA rays which penetrate deep into your skin and cause ageing.

A pigment called melanin decides the colour of our skin and Melanocytes are skin cells responsible for producing this. Melanin plays an extremely important role in protecting our skin. It protects from the harmful UV rays by forming a natural barrier. Our skin, when exposed to UVB produces an enzyme called Tyrosine. This enzyme ensures that melanocytes produce enough melanin, the pigment that shields our skin.

This process of melanin production, however, can sometimes go overboard, and melanocyte produces a large amount of this pigment.The reasons for this can vary. It could either be due to excessive exposure or due to hormonal imbalances. Thus, the skin becomes sensitive to sunlight, and as a result it begins to react. This reaction can lead to hyper-pigmentation or what is clinically known as melasma.   

Products formulated with potent bio-active ingredients can help repair this damage.  Our products, selected from years of research contain just that. Hence, they ensure you achieve delightful results when diligently used, as the repair and restore properties bestowed in it work the skin on a cellular level. 

Kaya’s Intense Clarify HD range for pigmentation contains a cocktail of botanical-based active ingredients to regulate the production of Tyrosinase and also help to breakdown existing pigmentation issues, leaving skin brighter and more even-toned. While some anti-pigmentation serums contain harsh tyrosinase inhibitors such as Hydroquinone, Kaya products such as the Pigmentation Reducing Complex and Brightening Serum contain safer ‘pigmentation regulators’ such as the bio-active ingredients listed below.

A skin-brightening ingredient that acts as melanin suppressant especially for darker skin tones is Phytic Acid, found in rice. Azelaic Acid has antibacterial properties and is used to treat bacteria, which help cause acne and keeps pores clean.

It is also used to reduce skin discolouration and is a good alternative to hydroquinone, particularly for dark-skinned people with melasma or dark spots left by acne. In addition, Azelaic Acid can also diminish inflammation and is effective at treating rosacea. Kaya Pigmentation Reducing Complex is a light textured cream that contains Azelaic & Phytic acid that not only help to reduce pigmentation spots but also prevent further darkening of skin. It is a workhorse that helps reduce dark spots, age spots, tanning and pigmentation marks. Read more about melasma treatment and its treatment option available at kaya

Waltheria Indica Leaf Extract is a flowering plant indigenous to Hawaii, from some regions of India and of Africa. This bio-active ingredient is used as a lightening agent as it calms, whitens and brightens skin. It is also a potent tyrosinase inhibitor and free radical scavenger.

Ferulic Acid exposes brighter skin by peeling off dead surface cells and dark pigment. It even goes a step ahead in prevention, as it is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent wrinkles and sun damage. Unlike most antioxidants that can fight only one type of free radicals (free radicals are the main cause of premature aging), Ferulic Acid can destroy three: superoxide, hydroxyl radical, and nitric oxide. As such, it is even more effective than Vitamins C and E and Beta-carotene.

Some anti-pigmentation serums can only be used at night and require a break period. One of the main things that makes the Kaya Brightening Serum (containing Waltheria Extract and Ferulic Acid) so fantastic is the fact that whiles it’s incredibly effective, it’s also incredibly gentle. 2-3 drops go a long way and it’s safe enough to be used during the day and under makeup.
