ALPAFLOR NATURAL GIGAWHITE HERBAL POWDER
Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ is a skin lightener developed from Alpine plants. Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ can brighten and even skin tone as well as reduce the color intensity of age spots. Alpaflor® Gigawhite™’s development is the result of a research program in which about a hundred plants were selected for their tyrosinase-inhibiting capacity. Dopachrome formation was measured using a spectrophotometer. Of the hundred plants tested, 15 were selected for their in vitro tyrosinase-inhibiting activity and were subsequently tested on cell cultures. In the cell cultures, 7 plants manifested even greater tyrosinase-inhibiting activity. These were active not only on whole cells (with their membranes) but also on cell lysates (the membranes having been destroyed). It was this discovery that led to the development of Alpaflor® Gigawhite™. The plants were combined in a proprietary and synergistic ratio maximizing its activity and producing an even more effective compound. In in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo tests, Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ has an effect on the tyrosinase-inhibiting mechanism involved in melanin biosynthesis.
