brighlette™ is a transparent solution that consists of glycerin, water, and 0.11% plankton extract. Plankton extract is a marine microorganism isolated from the southwest coast of Tenerife, a volcanic island in the Canary Archipelago of Spain.
As a biotechnological extract that acts on multiple stages of the pigmentation process, brighlette™ regulates the gene expression of melanogenic signaling proteins to decrease the formation and maturation of melanosomes. It also reduces tyrosinase levels and activity and diminishes melanin uptake by keratinocytes. Moreover, it induces the expression of DNA repair genes.
The result of using brighlette™ is an overall brightening effect, particularly on hyperpigmented spots. brighlette™ is used in anti-ageing skincare products to brighten, regulate, and even out hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
