Alpha Arbutin is a derivative of hydroquinone and a biosynthetic active ingredient. Its primary action is inhibiting tyrosinase, a key enzyme involved in the synthesis of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. Alpha Arbutin effectively reduces melanin production in the skin by inhibiting tyrosin activity. This gradually lightens hyperpigmented areas, such as age spots, melasma, and scars, resulting in a more even skin tone.

One of the significant advantages of Alpha Arbutin over other skin-lightening agents is its safety profile. Unlike hydroquinone, which has been associated with potential side effects and is restricted in many countries, Alpha Arbutin is considered safe and less irritating to the skin, even at higher concentrations. This makes it a suitable ingredient for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

In addition to its skin-lightening properties, Alpha Arbutin has also shown antioxidant effects, helping to protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by environmental factors like UV radiation and pollution.

Azelaic acid, a naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid, is an effective ingredient in dermatological treatments, particularly for acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation, with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Niacinamide offers several benefits for the skin, primarily due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It reduces the redness and inflammation associated with acne, rosacea, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Additionally, niacinamide's ability to improve the skin's barrier function benefits all skin types, particularly those with eczema or mature skin.

Another significant benefit of niacinamide is its role in reducing hyperpigmentation. Studies have shown that it can decrease the transfer of melanin to the epidermis, helping to fade dark spots and even out skin tone.

Niacinamide also plays a role in reducing the visible signs of aging. It has been found to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Its antioxidant properties further protect the skin from environmental damage, such as pollution and UV radiation, which contribute to premature aging.

The efficacy of niacinamide and its ability to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously has led to its growing popularity in both over-the-counter and prescription skincare formulations.

Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol's mechanism of action is similar to retinol's; it stimulates collagen production and accelerates cell turnover, improving skin texture and tone. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, making it an effective ingredient in anti-aging skincare products.

One of the key advantages of bakuchiol over traditional retinol is its gentleness on the skin. Retinol is known for potential side effects like dryness, redness, and irritation, particularly in sensitive skin or when used in high concentrations. Bakuchiol, however, is far less irritating. In addition to its anti-aging properties, bakuchiol exhibits antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, further contributing to its skin benefits. It helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and can soothe it, reducing redness and inflammation.

Bakuchiol's retinol-like effects and its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties make it an effective ingredient for various skin concerns, especially for those seeking natural alternatives in anti-aging and acne treatment.

  • Redness and Inflammation: The active ingredients work synergistically to calm inflammation and reduce redness, promoting a more balanced and even-toned complexion.
  • Skin Damage: By boosting skin health and supporting skin regeneration, Litaderm Serum is indicated for individuals who have skin damage, possibly due to environmental factors like sun exposure.

  • Overall Skin Health: Nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, promoting a healthier and youthful complexion.
  • Normal, Oily, and Combination skin types: Apply Litaderm Serum at night.
  • Dry skin types: Apply Litaderm Serum in the morning and/or at night.
  • Cleanse: Start with a clean, dry face. Use your DermExcel cleanser to remove dirt and excess oil from your skin.
  • Apply: The best time to apply the serum is when your skin is still slightly damp after cleansing. This allows your skin to better absorb the potent ingredients in the serum. So, after cleansing your face, don't completely dry your skin; leave it slightly damp. Take a small amount of Liatderm Serum (1-2 pumps or a pea-sized amount should suffice) and gently apply it to the face.
  • Massage: Using your fingertips, gently massage the serum into your skin in a circular motion. This helps to ensure the serum is evenly distributed and absorbed.
  • Wait: Allow the serum to absorb fully into the skin before applying other skincare products. This typically takes a few minutes.
  • Follow-up: Once the serum has been fully absorbed, continue with the rest of your skincare routine, such as applying sunscreen (in the morning).

By following these detailed steps, you will maximize the benefits of Litaderm Serum.

rosacea stages and treatment objectives

A constant interplay exists among the skin, micro-organisms, and the environment to maintain a delicate balance. Disturbance of this balance negatively influences both the microflora and skin health.

In Rosacea, the micro-environment of the affected skin is substantially altered, resulting in a shift in the proportion or speciation of the resident microflora. Several micro-organisms have been shown to be increased or immuno-reactive in patients with rosacea.

Or skin contains pattern recognition receptors (PPR). These receptors detect harmful bacteria on our skin. When they detect these harmful bacteria, they bind to them and activate an immune response.

Receptors (PPR) don't activate the immune response for normal micro-flora on our skin. Rosacea-prone skin receptors (PPR) are hyper-reactive and/or have decreased tolerance. They have heightened sensitivity and trigger the inflammatory response of normal microbes, leading to the initial signs of rosacea.

  • Healthy skin with a perfect balance between normal microflora and skin receptors.
  • The function of the pathogen recognizing receptos receptors (PPR) is to detect and bind to harmful molecules and then to activate the immune response.
  • These receptors should not trigger an immune response by binding to normal microflora.
  • PPR (receptors) of Rosacea-prone skin bind to normal flora (they are not supposed to) and activate the immune response that causes inflammation.
  • PPR (receptors) of Rosacea-prone skin is hyper-reactive and sensitive. They can be activated by various environmental agents (fragrance, heat, spicy food, etc.)
  • Inflammation leads to an increase in white blood cells (leucocytes) and antimicrobial peptides (cathelicidins), causing certain normal microbes to be eliminated.
  • The disruption of the body's normal microbial community leads to an imbalance, where potentially harmful microbes overgrow and occupy spaces left by the eliminated beneficial microbes.
  • The negative feedback loop continues where alterations in the micro-flora lead to increased inflammation, which in turn exacerbates Rosacea, resulting in more severe symptoms.

Since I started using the Inflacin Serum back in September 2020, I never stopped! The best serum for skin that is prone to break-outs. Also works on reducing the size of enlarged pores and keeps oily skin under control. I've got this one on re-order.
