Edition Date :
July 08, 2021

Alpha-Melight is a natural active ingredient extracted from the candeia tree bark, originating from Brazil. This tree bark is rich in natural α-bisabolol that acts on melanocytes receptors to reduce irritation reactions, thus leading to the reduction of melanin synthesis.

Thanks to this mechanism, Alpha-Melight is effective in decreasing skin pigmentation and lightening skin tone. This oil-soluble ingredient is dedicated to reduce dark spots.
