emerginC Spot Lightening Gel

EmerginC Spot Lightening Gel is a nice light easy to apply lightening gel. This product has a nice mix of components that impede the production and distribution of melanin to the skin cells. Arbutin from the bearberry bush, vitamin C, kojic acid, all interrupt the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme needed to instigate production of melanin. They all function a little differently giving a broader affect on inhibiting the pigment production without the irritation and potential side effects of hydroquinone.

Over time kojic acid will also cause the transport system (dendrites) from the melanocyte to the skin cells to deteriorate, eliminating pigment distribution. Vitamin C is a great anti-oxidant, and as well as inhibiting tyrosinase, it will inhibit the reaction needed with copper, preventing melanogenesis. In short this lightening gel contains a nice mixture to battle hyper-pigmentation. This product also offers AHA’s to promote exfoliation and improve the absorption of the active ingredients along with some anti-inflammatory soothing ingredients to counter any irritation.
