Every day, your skin is exposed to the causes of Environmental Aging. UV ray exposure from the sun, air pollution and toxins in every day products all visibly age the skin. Environmental exposure causes the breakdown of skin-firming collagen and skin-smoothing elastin, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. Damage to the melanocytes, skin’s specialized pigment producing cells, creates dark spots and age spots on your face, chest, arms and hands. Murad Environmental Shield products harness the power of Vitamin-C and antioxidants to undo existing environmental damage to your skin and prevent future damage. Murad Environmental Shield products, used as part of an Inclusive Health™ lifestyle, can give you firmer, more youthful skin that’s better every day.
Thiospot® effectively slows down melanin manufacture to help with pigment problems ranging from pregnancy mask, age spots, liver spots and sun spots and general pigment discolouration including Melasma and Chloasma.
Thiospot® is as effective as 2% hydroquinone cream but without any of the associated complications and current carcinogenic concerns regarding hydroquinone and its derivatives. Products containing arbutin and bearberry, which are still legally available in cosmetics, both release hydroquinone as the active agent and when applied act in the same way as hydroquinone with the same potential risks
Using Thiospot® as a pre-treatment to various clinical skin procedures can reduce the risk of post traumatic hyper-pigmentation particularly in darker skin types. Also one can use Thiospot® after procedures to safely manage excess pigment production.
