Lumixyl is the only skincare product formulated with the patented, potent & powerful Decapeptide-12, the Lumixyl peptide, discovered by Stanford Researchers & Dermatologists.
How Does It Brighten?
Tyrosinase is the melanin-producing enzyme used by skin for the production of pigment (what give skin its color). Certain indications, like excessive sun exposure or hormone fluctuations, can cause overproduction of the tyrosinase enzyme. The excess pigment floods the skin’s surface and creates dark spots and discoloration. Skin looks prematurely aged, blotchy, and uneven.
The Lumixyl peptide works by binding to tyrosinase: This prevents tyrosinase from being used in the production of melanin, subsequently reducing visible surface spots and discoloration.
It comes in 2 formulations: Lumixyl trifecting creme 0.2 and 1.0. Start with 0.2 which has lower concentration of retinol which can be irritating to the skin. APPLY IT AT BEDTIME DAILY!
Skin pigmentation, dark circles, melasma, age spots, sunspots, freckles, lentiges, skin discoloration!
COSMETIC PEPTIDES: last 30 years has seen the rise of cosmetic peptides which have various targets in the skin. Lets examine 6 peptides which have been shown to decrease melanin production in the skin. Melanin is the pigment which gives skin its color and the main enzyme which makes it is Tyrosinase. Melanin is of two types, Eumelanin which is yellow to red in color and Pheomelanin which is black. Skin type 1: redheads and skin type 2: blondes have mostly Eumelanin. Skin types 4-6 have Pheomelanin.
Decapeptide-12: Interferes with Tyrosinase: It is the ingredient in Lumixyl brightening creme
Nonapeptide-1: Interferes with Tyrosinase
Tetrapeptide-30: Interferes with Tyrosinase. Its the main ingredient of Lytera 2.0
Melanostatin DM: it interferes with Melanocyte stimulating hormone
Genowhite (acetyl glycol beta alanine): inhibits melanin by various mechanisms
Oligopeptide-68: It works by inhibiting the MITF gene that plays an important role in controlling melanin producing skin cells called melanocytes
Used for skin pigmentation, age spots, lentiges, freckles, melasma and other sun spots etc. HYDROQUINONE has been banned in most countries except in USA. It’s a toxic chemical known to cause cancer in lab animal testing, can cause permanent skin discoloration, permanent blue skin color, irritation, dermatitis etc. This product should not be used. ARBUTIN derived from bearberry also gets converted to HYDROQUINONE in the body and should also be avoided!
