This velvety cream base contains a natural blend of 5 oils and exotic Mango and Shea Butter, to increase elasticity and ease dryness. Whitening agents have historically used hydroquinone and kojic acid, which have been shown to be cytotoxic. Alternately, botanical extracts of Mulberry or Licorice Root contain unstable tyrosinase inhibiting flavinoids, causing tyrosine to hyper-pigment (oxidize and darken skin). Synerlight from the French company Libiol was selected for our whitening component. Containing Sophora Flavescens (from a tree in China) and Kiwi Root (Actinidia Chinesis), it targets specific pigmentation problems and have produced 94% equivalent effectiveness of kojic acid (without toxicity). It includes 5 natural oils of Avocado, Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Olive and Sunflower. Shea and Mango Butters along with Aloe, Vitamin E and Cucumber extracts, enrich the skin and can be used as a daily moisturizer.
