LIGHTOCEANE® G 40 is a brown liquid, potent skin lightener with no precipitates. It acts with a clever mechanism of action at different levels of the melanogenesis cascade: before, during, and after melanin synthesis. By influencing all main pathways involved in the melanogenesis, this product reduces the release of nitric of melanin, inhibits the dendricity of melanocytes, and controls the transfer of melanosomes to keratinocytes. As a result, the skin shows a reduced overall pigmentation.

LIGHTOCEANE® G 40 offers anti-oxidant and protective activities against both UVB and UVA. It also has complementary properties linked to the prevention of skin aging such as anti-inflammatory, anti-elastase, anti-collagenase, and anti-hyaluronidase properties. All these properties make this product as very attractive active in anti-aging products. LIGHTOCEANE® G 40 is available preservative free or with the following ones : microcare SB or phenoxyethanol or Caprylyl glycol .
