Whitening

LUCEMINE® is a vitamine C derivative with whitening effect on pigmented skin

Vitamin C prevents skin melanization, which leads to pigment spots but is unstable in cosmetic formulation.

Vitamin C is very sensitive to oxidation that is caused by heat, air, light or even metal. It’s easily degraded, especially when used in cosmetics. Vitamine C rarely has the occasion to show its whitening properties due to its rapid degradation when applied to the skin’s surface.

LUCEMINE® optimises the whitening effect

of Vitamin C  solving its structural instability.
