Treatment for Melanin-Rich Skin
The melanocyte cells produce the skin pigment melanin. The main nutrition of these important cells consists of plant extracts that are rich in beta-carotenes and folic acid, which is present in all plants that are green. Since darker skin types contain more melanocytic cells, it is even more crucial that the treatment for melanin-rich skin contains these vital nutrients. They assure the optimal functioning of these cells and therefore an even pigmentation of melanin-rich skin.
The green color of plants is their version of melanin (pigment) and therefore these plant pigments have a highly beneficial effect on the melanin of the human skin. Plants that are rich in chlorophyll provide the skin with biological sun protection by strengthening the skin’s capacity to protect itself. It is essential to avoid substances of synthetic chemistry and use only physically/mechanically processed plant ingredients.
For the best results, the treatment of melanin-rich skin should include the consumption of these nutrients via the food we eat and the products we put on our skin.
