Skin Whitening

  • Freckles are areas of your skin that contain high levels of melanin which often appear on the face of women. Tyrosinase, most commonly used inhibitor of melanin, is generally used to treat pigmented skin.
    Although tyrosinase is effective on cell strain and prevention of pigmentation, it brings the risk of browning and skin toxicity which makes it difficult to be used safely and effectively.
