White Sea Lily
A plant that lives in intense climates and has an extraordinary capacity for resistance and adaptation. . It buries itself into the sand to defend itself against the ocean winds, and it only blooms when night falls, to preserve its radiance. Along the Mediterranean coast, this is a protected plant. The young plants used by MELVITA, however, are grown organically in greenhouses in Brittany (France). White sea lily is a remarkable, multi-purpose active ingredient that offers a complete response for all of the factors involved in melanogenesis. In addition to having a neuronal action (action on the export of melanin), it also has a photobiological action on the diurnal and nocturnal production of melanin.
A very resistant, hardy perennial. It closes its petals at night and during storms, to protect them from the rain. It symbolizes purity and softness. Bellis is gathered on the wild slopes of the Macedonian mountains (central Europe). This extract plays an important role in tyrosinase synthesis, as well as the production and transfer of melanin. The results obtained by cosmetogenomics showed that this extract acted on epidermal regeneration, cellular detoxification and the radiance of the complexion.
A flower whose charm is eternal, the flower of self-love. It is a perennial plant that grows from a bulb. MELVITA uses an active ingredient extracted from the dormant bulb (when its cellular production system goes to sleep). By slowing the cell production mechanism, and particularly the proliferation of keratinocytes, the melanogenesis process can be inhibited. This extract of dormant narcissus bulb has shown to have good results in terms of reducing melanin production and transfer. Transcriptome studies have also shown an improvement in complexion radiance and protection for the skin against endogenous and exogenous stress, as well as DNA protection and repair.
Flourishes in shaded pastures and on grassy slopes. Rich in protein and sugars, this organic lupin seed extract has proven to be effective in strengthening the skin barrier and limiting water loss. Also rich in oligosaccharides and glutamine peptides, it boosts the synthesis of structural proteins and epidermal lipids. By stimulating epidermal renewal, melanin levels in the epidermis are lower. The action of white lupin complements that of the other active ingredients.
A small shrub with white flowers. Wintergreen essential oil is extracted from its fresh leaves. This essential oil contains a very high level of methyl salicylate, which is its main component (approx. 98%). When this methyl salicylate is hydrolyzed, a salicylic acid derivative is obtained, which plays a role in exfoliation. This active ingredient therefore promotes skin exfoliation and reveals a more radiant, more luminous complexion.
