Solution with a Peptide that is stimulator of melanin synthesis, increases the quantity of melanin in human melanocytes in the absence of UV radiation and favours its correct distribution at the epidermal level.
Function: – Stimulates tanning
– Activates antioxidant properties, captures radicals, absorption and release of the skins natural UV rays
– Prolongs the melanocyte release effect
– Prevents the harmful effects of free radicals on the skin induced by UV, shortening UV exposure times.
Composition: Formulated with a Tripeptide that stimulates the melanin synthesis.
Tanning: The skin’s pigmentation is the basic photoprotector agent; the function of melanin is, apart from absorbing UV radiations, as a potent anti-radical agent. This is synthesised in melanocytes, (specifically in the melanosome), located in the basal layer. When the melanosome is full of melanin, this is released to the dendrites of the melanocyte and is there released to the keratinocytes that rise to the superficial levels of the epidermis. The pigmentary response of the skin to UV radiation is determined by the constitutive pigmentation. The UV stimulation implies an increase in the melanocyte activity, stimulation of the neo-synthesis of melanin and the dendricity of the melanocytes, three basic characteristics required for melanin to be transferred to the keratinocytes.
