DESCRIPTION: Z-Bright (Zinc Glycinate) is a cosmetic agent with skin-beautifying benefits in skin lightening and anti-oxidant protection. It inhibits melanogenesis and triggered metallothionein expression. It also reduces oxidative stress which leads to premature ageing and other undesirable skin conditions. In a study, Z-Bright reduced melanin production by 75%. Z-Bright suppresses melanocyte proliferation. It also stimulates the production of a natural endogenous antioxidant peptide – metallothionein. Metallothionein helps inhibit the secretion of various melanocyte growth and activating factors produced by the keratinocyte cells. The inhibition of Melanocyte activating factors such as endothelin-1 with UV and the prevention of melanocyte proliferation inhibits the production of melanin.
