Lumiskin™ is a solution of diacetyl-boldine and caprylic/capric triglycerides that inhibit the activity of tyrosinase. It is used for its skin lightening properties. Diacetyl Boldine (DAB) works well via a-adrenergic antagonist receptors and calcium flow regulation. This product is recommended for use in skin lightening products. Lumiskin™ is recommended for use in emulsions, soaps and make-up products with lightening or whitening properties.
Pigmentation disorders are a big concern widely shared by most of the populations (Asian, African, Latin-American people). Amongst benign pigmentation disorders, some are stimulated by ageing (freckles, lentigines and melasma) and stress (inflammatory hyperpigmentation).
Sederma is proud to offer a new solution to people wishing to reduce irregularities in pigmentation or to lighten their skin complexion. Based on a botanical, Wonderlight™ acts on both melanocytes and their associated keratinocytes to help lessen pigmentation disorders. It regulates the Epidermal Melanin Unit cross-talking and blocks the signalling pathways involved in the melanin synthesis. Wonderlight™ exhibits a stronger effect on hyperpigmented areas and equalises skin pigmentation in order to make them less visible.
The ability of Wonderlight™ to inhibit the UV inducted secretion of GM-CSF (important melanocyte stimulator) was demonstrated in vitro. The concept was validated on living human skin cultures (phototype III) in which the UVAB induced the 2-fold increase in the number of melanocytes was totally inhibited in the presence of Wonderlight™.
Two clinical trials conducted on Asian volunteers with classical pigment disorders (lentigines, ephelides, melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) confirmed the melanogenesis reducing the activity of Wonderlight™ on these lesions
Keratoline™ CPS is an enzymatic exfoliation that gently eliminates the dead cells to reveal younger, healthier looking skin.

Pct Alp Rose
Alpine roses are typical Swiss flowers that grow at altitudes of 1500 – 3000 m. And it is in these distinct environments that they have to adapt to extreme conditions such as the cold, UV and dryness. PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose is based on alpine rose stem cells and has succeeded in capturing these characteristics. PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose helps to maintain the characteristics of skin stem cells and to protect these precious cells against UV-stress.

Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract is a strain of bacteria isolated from mud found on King George Island in Antarctica. It is a peptide that is classified as a protein derivative and contains the following three amino acid residues: glycine, histidine and lysine. It is used in a number of anti-ageing products because of its ability to regenerate and protect the skin by retaining moisture and water, heal wounds, increase collagen and elastin production, and improve hydration
Pearl Powder Extract

Melaslow™ or more commonly known as the Satsuma is native to Japan. It was regarded as the fruit for perpetual youth and longevity as described in Kojiki and Nihon Shoki. It is rich in antioxidants and brighteners that help control melanin biosynthesis to help even out skin tone and control hyperpigmentation. Tyrosinase is the enzyme responsible for skin hyperpigmentation. Citrus Unshiu Extract effectively inhibited the activity of tyrosinase, thus prevents skin hyperpigmentation.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide - 5
Improves collagen production and firms the skin by altering how skin cells function, It stimulates collagen production and healthy tissue growth. Highly effective to boost collagen production naturally.
