ABSTRACT

A new brightening skincare regimen was developed to improve the complexion of facial skin by targeting multiple steps and pathways that affect pigmentation. The regimen consists of a facial cleanser, serum and lotion, which contain N-acetyl glucosamine* plus a variety of other benefit ingredients to collectively exfoliate pigmented areas, reduce tyrosinase activity and melanin production, and deliver an overall pigment evening effect.

DEFINITIONS

N-acetyl glucosamine is known as NeoGlucosamine® in Exuviance products.
