Melaclear-2 is that it is a hydroglycolic solution (propylene glycol and water), which contains a keratolytic enzyme. It is used in lightening products because of its ability to eliminate strongly pigmented skin cells while helping to smooth the skin.
How does it work
The keratolytic enzyme is an enzyme which helps speed up the breakdown of keratin. Keratin is formed by keratinocytes, living cells that make up a large part of skin, hair, nails, and other parts of the body. The cells slowly push their way upwards, eventually dying and forming a protective layer. Thousands are shed every day. Some of these skin cells can become discolored and the enzymic action of Melaclear-2 helps in softly eliminating strongly pigmented skin cells on the skins surface clearing and renewing the skin. Melaclear-2 also contains antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients which promote healthy hydrated smooth skin.
