Pomegranate, Acai Berry and Bilberry Extract
Pomegranate extract (90% ellagic acid from pomegranate rind), Acai berry extract, and bilberry extract are high in the antioxidents; polyphenols and proanthocyanins. These antioxidents target free radicals, boost collagen production, even skin tone and plump up the skin. A pomegranate extract (PE) from the rind containing 90% ellagic acid was tested for its skin-whitening effect. PE showed inhibitory activity against mushroom tyrosinase in vitro, and the inhibition by the extract was comparable to that of arbutin, which is a known whitening agent. PE, when administered orally, also inhibited UV induced skin pigmentation. The intensity of the skin-whitening effect was similar between those that consumed PE and those that consumed L-ascorbic acid. PE reduced the number of DOPA-positive melanocytes in the epidermis, but L-ascorbic acid did not. These results suggest that the skin-whitening effect of PE was due to inhibition of the proliferation of melanocytes and melanin synthesis by tyrosinase in melanocytes. PE, when combined in the Yllume formula allows for a significantly strong and effective oral whitening agent for the skin.
Vitamin C (ester form ascorbyl palmitate)
A potent antioxidant. Witamin C plays a vital role in the condition of the skin. In its stable ascorbyl palmitate form, it aids brightening, boosts collagen and reduces free radical damage.
It has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin, this co-enzyme plays an important role in repairing and reducing oxidative stress helping to protect the cells from tissue damage.
An anti-oxidant amino acid that helps to produce keratin, essential for keeping your skin, hair and nails healthy.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Helps combat the signs of ageing by maintaining cell’s metabolic function and increasing the effectiveness of other antioxidants in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid also increases vitamin C and E naturally within the body.
An extract obtained from the black pepper fruit that is cultivated in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of southern India. The delicate pepper berries are harvested just prior to ripening and then sun dried to assure optimum maturity and quality. The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form has been clinically tested in the United States. BioPerine® has been used in the Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex™ Skin Supplement to significantly enhance the bioavailability of the active ingredients through increased absorption.
- 2 concentrated vegetarian capsules NOT tablets. Tablet manufacturing not only destroy the actives during manufacture to ‘glue’ the ingredients together, but a tablet is harder to digest and break down in the stomach, and thus does not reap the full benefits of the product. Yllume uses ‘Vegi Caps’ which dissolve in the stomach and the ingredients are not exposed to heat or glue, rather are safely encapsulated without any additional filling agents to ensure maximum efficacy and potency.

We do not use common lightening agents such as Hydroquinone, Kojic acid, Arbutin and Licorice extract as we know from experience some of these are unstable, and for others there is a high risk of skin inflammation and irritation.
