Tetrahydrocurcumin, is a color-free compound, derived from the yellow Curcuminoids (the rhizomes of Curcuma longa).
The antioxidant activity of this product slows down melanogenesis, thereby lightening the skin tone and also shown to inhibit the action of tyrosinase that participates in melanin formation
It is derived from turmeric roots and its composition is a scientifically-proven topical antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, with ultraviolet B (UVB) protectant effects and superior antioxidant efficacy as compared to ascorbic acid and Vitamin E. A potent inhibitor of melanogenesis, its activity was found to be several fold greater than Kojic acid, glabridin and other natural extracts.
Studies indicate that tetrahydrocurcuminoids, particularly tetrahydrocurcumin, efficiently inhibit tyrosinase. Tetrahydrocurcumin efficiently inhibits tyrosinase and is more effective than Kojic acid, arbutin and Vitamin C, which are used as natural depigmenting agents. The powerful tyrosinase inhibitory activity of tetrahydrocurcumin could also slow down melanogenesis, thereby lightening the skin tone.
Clinically proven to be safe, effective and comparable to Hydroquinone, at much lower doses for its skin lightening properties.
