Cream containing active ingredients for lightening the skin and a nano-inorganic UV filter. The ANTI-PIGMENT CREAM is not a substitute for UV protective product.
The UV filter in the Anti-pigment cream is about 6-8 and it serves as a skin protection supplement for a very short stay in the sun. Do not apply sunscreen during long-term stay in the sun.
An amino acid derivate (creatinine) naturally produced by the body. It reduces a yellow tone of the skin and lightens the complexion. It appears to be more effective than the currently used agents, e.g the kojic or azelaic acids. The amino acid affects (slows down) the transfer of melanin from melanocytes to keratinocytes in a safe way. The principle consists in slowing down the activity of tyrosinase in pigment cells (melanin production), i.e. the process which influences the skin turning brown.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
A stable derivate of vitamin C with an anti-oxidizing effect. It has an inhibitive effect on melanin synthesis (lightens the skin) and stimulates the collagen production.
Vitamin B3 decreases pigmentation and has a soothing effect. It stimulates collagen synthesis in older fibroblasts and, moreover, application of niacin results in a significant decrease of transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
Micronized Aloe Vera extract
Apart from its soothing properties it also helps to balance the skin tone.
Apply a small amount of the cream on the WHITE CONCEPT anti-pigment serum to increase its effect (especially in spring and autumn), or apply the cream separately as a prevention and protection of the skin with pigment spots (especially in summer).

What should you know about pigmentation?
Every person is more or less prone to the development of pigment spots. First of all, it is necessary to protect the skin and be aware of risks of e.g. sunbathing, solarium etc. Therefore, use suitable protective products with an appropriate UV / SPF filter. For children, this measure applies twice!
Increased pigmentation (formation of pigment spots) is caused by melanin production. There are several factors influencing the melanin production:
a) hormonal contraception
b) use of some perfumes the skin reacts with
c) skin rashes, skin injuries followed by sunbathing
d) liver diseases
e) when exposing the skin to excessive sunlight without using appropriate protective means. This factor has the biggest impact on the pigment production.
REMOVING PIGMENT SPOTS
1. WHITE CONCEPT FOR LIFE & MADAGA risk-free method
Reduction of melanin production – influencing the melanin production in pigment cells.
This is a safe and proved method based on gradual lightening of existing pigment spots while reducing the production of new pigment. TEGO COSMO is an agent which effectiveness reaches 80% in comparison with the known products, e.g. azelaic acid and kojic acid. Its effect is now actively supported by other components (a stable derivate of vitamin C and vitamin B3). Lightening the skin by using these agents is gentle with a long-term effect and there is no risk of destruction or undesirable reactions. Skin pigment is lightened to its natural tone. Moreover, due to its composition it helps to catch free radicals. We recommend using the FOR LIFE & MADAGA method for at least 2 months.
2. Whitening skin surface by AHA acids
“Etching” the surface layer of the skin by concentrated fruit or glycolic acids.
In order for this method to be effective, it is performed by a qualified specialist as an outpatient’s treatment.
This method is fast, but you should be aware that it is effective only on the skin surface, which is why it does not prevent the pigment spots to reappear. Moreover, it might not be suitable for all clients. It requires more discipline as the patients cannot expose themselves to sunlight during the treatment at all.
3. LASER – removing pigment spots by laser beam
One of the “modern” methods is removing pigment spots by laser. This step requires more discipline and longer skin recovery time. It is particularly used for acute cases of accumulated pigment (after sunbathing, injuries, medication). It is performed by a professional dermatologist. Laser treatment should be most preferably followed by a gentle FOR LIFE & MADAGA depigmentation method.
