ILLUMINAR Transdermal patches is an advanced skin technology that allows for the effective transfer of the active ingredients from a patch directly into the blood stream through the skin.
Using advanced transdermal technology, ILLUMINAR patches provide the optimal dose of Glutathione through patch administration with an absorption rate of almost 98%.
Transdermal drug delivery is the non-invasive delivery of active ingredients through the skin surface. Transdermal patch technology has been used for many years in the medical field to deliver specific doses of medication through the skin and directly into the bloodstream.
ILLUMINAR transdermal patches are sold as 30 patches in a box, which lasts one month. A single patch is used for a minimum of 8 hours up to maximum of 24 hours.
ILLUMINAR patches encourage a radiant, flawless skin tone and effectively lighten ones complexion.
How do ILLUMINAR patches lighten the skin?
ILLUMINAR patches lighten the skin by reducing the melanin formation of the epidermis going up into the dermis.
Glutathione is proven to revert the melanin’s metabolism turning dark pigmentation (eumelanin into light pigmentation (pheomelanin) inhabits and blocks tyrosinase , the enzyme responsible for the production of dark melanin pigment. The end product becomes pheomelanin (reddish – white pigmentation) instead of eumelanin (dark brow pigmentation). A continuous and consistent supply of glutathione through ILLUMINAR patches will result to skin lightening to correct skin coloring.
ILLUMINAR lightens the skin by reducing the melanin formation of the epidermis (lower skin layers) going up to the dermis (upper skin layer).
Side Effects? There are NONE!
Why? Because its ability to lighten the skin is already its side-effect. There is also no harm in prolonged use. It is advisable to reduce smoking and alcohol consumption for maximum benefit and results.
ILLUMINAR patches do not sensitise the skin however the use of a high SPF sunscreen on exposed parts of your face and body are highly recommended.
