DESCRIPTION: Rumex-White is a standardized extract of Rumex Occidentalis plant. Rumex Extract is derived from Field Dock—a plant native to Canadian prairies. An eco-friendly, natural skin-lighter that is gentle on the skin.
It successfully reduces unwanted pigmentation and skin redness for a more even complexion, brighter and lighter skin tone, as well as age spot reduction. Rumex White is effective in reducing the appearance of photo-ageing. Rumex white inhibits Tyrosinase - the enzyme responsible for darkening the skin, with significant results as little as 3 weeks, based on a clinical trial. When tyrosine is inhibited it stops the the production of more melanin.
In one study, the efficacy of 3% R. White cream and 4% HQ cream were compared. At the end of the evaluation, the rumex containing cream gave close to similar results as HQ. HQ cream performed slightly better. In conclusions: Rumex white 3% cream is a safe and effective skin-lightening agent for melasma and is comparable in efficacy with 4% HQ cream.
