A potent blend of active ingredients, uniquely formulated within a clay base to facilitate the even and swift penetration of these components. 4-Butylresorcinol boasts an exclusive structure that enhances its bioavailability within the skin. This compound aids in diminishing hyperpigmentation by inhibiting a pivotal enzyme, tyrosinase, which holds a significant role in the skin’s pigment production process (melanogenesis). Through direct tyrosinase activity inhibition, 4-Butylresorcinol contributes to achieving a more uniform complexion.

Key Benefits

  • Encompasses a dual approach to reduce hyperpigmentation, involving exfoliation of visibly pigmented cells and contributes to inhibit pigment production.
  • Assists in providing more even toned complexion.
  • Demonstrates the ability to counteract age-inducing free radicals through potent antioxidant action.
How to Use

Apply a thin layer of the M.E.L.A. mask to clean, dry skin. Leave on for 5 minutes. Mild temporary tingling may occur. Gently cleanse the skin with E.X.F.O. cleanse to thoroughly remove the mask, then pat dry. If severe irritation develops during the 5 minutes, immediately cleanse the skin with E.X.F.O. cleanse, pat dry, and moisturise. For heightened skin activity, and if skin tolerance permits, apply a second even layer after 5 minutes. Leave on for 10 minutes. Gently cleanse the skin with E.X.F.O. cleanse again to remove all traces of the mask, then pat dry. Use once every 3 weeks for mild skin activity and once per week for more active results. Do not use D.E.R.M.A.B.R.A.S.I.O.N. cream or any of the active prescriptions (A.C.T.I.V.E. formula or VITA A cream) on the same evening as the M.E.L.A. mask. Use in the evening ONLY.
