Brighten, whiten and lighten skin with Hallstar’s Bright Oléoactif (INCI: Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Seed Oil (and) Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate (and) Althaea Officinalis Root Extract (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract), extracted from three plants to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Bright Oléoactif reduces hyperpigmentation thanks to three plants screened and blended for their complementary activities: marshmallow root, rice bran and licorice root. The combination of these plants, as well as the ingredient’s oil-based form, make the ingredient safe and tolerable to skin.
Recent data from the company demonstrates that at 0.12%, Bright Oléoactif inhibits 90% of tyrosinase activity, which is equivalent to the effect of 0.01% of pure hydroquinone. The ingredient is reportedly a safe, natural solution that enables the minimization of hydroquinone levels in a cosmetic formulation. It can be used in day care and sun care products for the majority of skin types.
The company adds the ingredient has been shown to be 24% more effective at brightening than glabridin; and compared with licorice extracts, it is more cost-effective and easier to formulate with. In addition, at 0.1%, Bright Oléoactif was found to be twice as effective at brightening as ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
