Biluma cream composition

Biluma cream has the following six potent skin-whitening ingredients:

  • Kojic Acid Dipalmitate is derived from a fungus and is used at a concentration varying from 1 to 4%. It benefits patients who are not responding to Hydroquinone, prescribed by a dermatologist because both are tyrosinase inhibitors (an enzyme used to synthesise melanin pigment).
  • Arbutin is derived from berries and is widely used as a skin whitening agent worldwide.
  • Tocopherol or Vitamin E helps in skin lightening and repair of damaged skin owing to its potent anti-oxidant action.
  • Mulberry extracts are derived from the plant Morus alba and have skin-lightening effects.
  • Liquorice has glabridin that prevents pigmentation by UVB rays and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Tetrohydrocurcumin is derived from turmeric and helps in fading of dark skin. A concentration of 0.25 % is considered as potent as 4% of hydroquinone in a study.
  • Artocarpus extract (Oxyreservetol 95%) is a potent antioxidant with skin-lightening action.
