Skin discolouration is a prevalent problem that affests millions of women, Asians especially.

In discolouration, the UV rays enter the inner layers of the akin and cause a reaction that generates free radicals, which are harmful, unstable chemical molecules.

These free radicals, which are also produced as we are exposed to daily pollutants like cigarettes, smoke or carbon monoxide from cars react with molanocytes and cause the catalytic over production of melanin.

On top of these, discolouralion can also be affected by hormonal imbalances during pregnancy and the usage of oral contraceptwes, certain types of antibiotics and cosmetics.
