Our brightening scrub helps minimize the production of tyrosinase to combat discoloration. The licorice extract brightens the skin with liquiritin, an active compound that helps to disperse and remove existing melanin in the skin. Liquiritin not only can help prevent new spots from forming, but it can also fade existing ones. Like many other plant-based extracts, licorice contains a flavonoid, an antioxidant-rich component that decreases reactive oxygen species, which can both age and discolor the skin.
Our Brightening scrub also contains Papaya extract. The proteolytic enzyme papain helps to gently break down and digests large proteins that have accumulated on the skin. It's known as a "skin-debriding agent" for this reason, contributing to the breakdown of protein in the skin, helping to remove damaged skin cells, allowing the healthy tissue to heal. The papain found in papaya is attributed to soothing skin irritations and its anti-inflammatory properties making it an ideal ingredient for acne and blemish-prone skin. Its natural and effective exfoliating properties brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells and flaky patches on the top layer of your skin. Papaya can also help with hyperpigmentation which can occur after breakouts and can help the skin to recover after any scarring. The combination of enzymes, phytochemicals, and high beta-carotene content helps to brighten the skin and repair the skin's natural complexion. It is also highly effective in retaining its proteolytic activity over a wide range of skin pH ranges, including those with acne or blemish-prone skin where the facial skin pH tends to be lower than normal.
