HodVital is a natural active ingredient extracted from germinated barley grains at a specific step of germination, when hordenine enzyme concentration is at its highest level. Hordenine is known for its melanogenesis inhibition effect, thus allowing HodVital to decrease skin cells melanin pigmentation.

It also favors skin desquamation and cell renewal, to remove excess pigmentation from the external skin layers.

With its double effect on increasing skin renewal cycle and decreasing pigment levels in newly built cells, Hodvital has a strong lightening effect and evens out skin tone.
