Developed from alpine plants, Gigawhite™ is a skin brightening complex. It is composed of seven organically grown Swiss alpine plants including:
- Malva Sylvestris Extract
- Mentha Piperita Leaf Extract
- Primula Veris Extract
- Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract
- Veronica Officinalis Extract
- Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract
The plants were selected based on their ability to inhibit tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin or skin pigment. This is the same mechanism of action as hydroquinone. The plants are combined in a proprietary and synergistic ratio to maximize their activity and produce an even more effective compound (Pharmacymix). For skin care products, this means that Gigawhite™ may improve the appearance of dark spots, melasma, and other skin discolorations.
Unlike the side effects associated with numerous skin care products that had hydroquinone, such as increased mercury level in the skin, abnormal functioning of the adrenal glands and thickening of the skin, there are no harms associated with the use of Gigawhite™ (BrighterLooks).
What the Studies Show
In one study, Gigawhite™ was been tested on 10 subjects of Asian origin, with statistically significant bleaching effects. These skin lightening effects may partly be attributed to tyrosinase inhibition. (International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 2009), which means that Gigawhite™ may work in the same fashion as hydroquinone, but without the reported side effects!
In another study, Gigawhite™ at a 5% concentration has been shown to brighten and even skin tone. In a 12 week study, it was additionally shown to reduce the color intensity of age spots.
It doesn’t take long for Gigawhite to work, either: Gigawhite produces noticeable results within first 2 to 12 weeks when it’s used regularly. Skin conditions that this ingredient can address include dark circles, age spots, sun burns, skin-discoloration, reverse tanning etc. (BrighterLooks).
