Pevonia Botanica Lightening has ingredients which not only treat existing dark areas, but inhibit the production of melanin and protect against some causes of future stimulation that produces excess pigmentation. In addition to treating the pigmentation difficulty, Pevonia Botanica Lightening also promotes hydration to improve skin texture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In our ongoing commitment to offer only safe products, we do not use hydroquinone in Pevonia Botanica Lightening, as there has been a fair amount of regarding side effects. Instead, we use only ingredients which have been proven to be effective and safe for sensitive skin.
There are many causes of dark areas and spots in the skin. The Pevonia Botanica Lightening products work to reduce existing melanin through gentle exfoliation, inhibiting the future production of the pigmentation and blocking some causes of the stimulation of melanocyte cells, which cause this discoloration. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by overexposure to the sun, environmental irritants, inflammation, acne and the natural aging process. A morning or evening application of Pevonia Radiance Renewing Glycocides Cream, after the use of a Pevonia cleanser, is the first step to protecting against this condition. The glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which acts as a gentle exfoliant and helps inhibit melanin. The titanium dioxide screens out ultraviolet light rays, which stimulate melanocyte activity and causes future darker areas and spots. In addition, the hyaluronic acid, glyceryl stearate and chamomile flower oil act as hydrating compounds, to renew and refresh your skin. Follow with an application of a Pevonia lotion appropriate for your skin type.
In conjunction with Pevonia Radiance Renewing Glycocides Cream, additional benefit can be derived from using Pevonia Radiance Lightening Gel. This is a powerful combination of active and effective melanin-inhibiting compounds. After thoroughly cleaning the skin, apply the gel in the evening, but only to the pigmented areas. The azelaic acid is an approved treatment for hyperpigmentation which, along with magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (a source of vitamin C), arbutin and glycolic acid will inhibit melanin production. It may also be applied to the back of hands to treat pigmented areas and spots.
