What is Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition in which some areas of the skin become darker in colour than the surrounding skin.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess of melanin is produced by melanocytes, the pigment cells, which are moved up to the skin’s surface.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by inflammation, hormonalstress, sun damage, or other skin injuries. People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure.
Cysteamine is one of the strongest antioxidants naturally present in the human body, and its action reduces melanin pigment in the skin.
It helps to remove brown spots, reduces pigmented marks and produces an even and lighter skin complexion.
