Yllume uses an exclusive, patented proprietary ingredient called PhytoflORAL® consisting of colourless carotenoids for internal skin lightening and brightening.
Colourless Carotenoids present in Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex naturally increases the body’s own levels of glutathione. Colourless carotenoids are naturally found in the topmost layers of the skin at a level of 38%, those deficient in these carotenoids show signs of hyperpigmentation, sensitivity, acne and dry skin. Yllume is the only complete skin care system to contain these carotenoids and can address these issues via a unique approach, delivering unique lightening actives both topically and internally at a cellular level.
The role of glutathione as a skin whitening agent has grown due to a side effect used by Parkinson’s and cancer patients who took it intravenously albeit the results were slight and temporary. Glutathione as a ‘master antioxidant’ when low in the body does affect melanin and the skin appears darker, therefore increasing glutathione is essential in whitening the skin. However, one cannot physically take Glutathione in either a supplement or Intravenous route to reap its benefits, just like one cannot apply collagen to the skin to reap its benefits. We need to consume collagen producing actives that increases collagen naturally, as the collagen molecules are far too large to penetrate and do the job it’s supposed to. Similarly, Glutathione cannot be consumed to do the job it’s expected, one needs to take actives that increases glutathione levels naturally to reap its full benefits like Yllume. Moreover, Glutathione when taken orally is hydrolyzed by the intestinal tract resulting in very low to no bioavailability, it breaks down in the stomach rendering it useless.
Yllume is the only skin lightening system which if used over a long period of time is better for the health of the skin, unlike common lightening systems which if used for more than two weeks can cause the skin to produce more melanin as a response to the harsh chemical lightening ingredients and inflammation. This type of ‘lightening’ effect is only visible for a short period and the skin darkens soon after.
These easy-to-digest supplements should be combined with the complete Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex™ range to provide clinically proven, visibly brighter and fresher, younger-looking skin
