Aging causes the skin to develop more spots from hyperpigmentation from inflammation and overexposure to sun and free radicals. Hyperpigmentation is the over production of melanin within the skin. Certain areas of the skin may have more pigment than others leaving the skin to have spots and discolorations. This reduces the skin’s radiance and youthful look. Certain medications can cause the skin to become hyperpigmented, as well as fungal infections, iron overload, and even pregnancy.2
Niacinamide has been shown to reduce skin pigmentations by reducing melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes from 35-68%. Studies have shown lightening to occur after only 4 weeks of use when in combination with a good sunscreen so as to reduce additional pigmentation from occurring.1
Studies have shown that alpha-arbutin is an effective ingredient when it comes to skin-lightening. Melanin synthesis was reduced to 40% making it a safe and effective ingredient for skin lightening products.3
