Sooo getting back to what is Glutathione?

Glutathione is an antioxidant that is naturally found in plants and animals. Glutathione is capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen such as free radicals and heavy metals. Now remember Ladies your skin is consistently exposed to reactive oxygen in the air caused by pollution.

Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food and alcohol or when you're exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation.
So basically Glutathione is a detox molecule that cleans up unwanted dirt in your body.

Glutathione will clean you up. It cleanses the liver of chemicals, hormones and pollutants that causes damage to your liver, skin and body. Once you are detoxified Glutathione then acts on your skin by improving radiance, decreasing pigmentation, increasing skin elasticity and increasing hydration. It is a safe and natural method to help restore uneven, sun-damaged or hyper-pigmented skin, creating that healthy glow. We got that? 😄 Yes we got it 🥰🥰🥰

How does glutathione work?

Your skin’s pigmentation (skin colour) occurs because the body produces melanin. Melanin is produced by the melanocytes these are melanin producing cells found in the bottom layer of your skin. Tyrosine is a molecule useful in the first step of melanin production. Glutathione is a tyrosinase inhibitor, meaning it stops the production of tyrosine by stopping work done by an enzyme in your body. The action of Glutathione as a tyrosinase inhibitor results in lighter skin.

Research has established the best way to control an excess of melanin production is to target this crucial enzyme. The other reason we target this enzyme is it is only found in the melanocyte(melanin producing cells)- meaning there are no side effects anywhere else when we inhibit it.

Bonus Q&A....

How long does it take to see results?


Although results vary based on which combo you start with and your avoidance of unprotected sun exposure plus personal eating habits, you will typically see results within two to three months of consistent use. Results are gradual and natural. Within a few weeks, you should notice that your skin is healthier looking as the glutathione starts by detoxifying your body. If you are prone to acne or other skin conditions, you should notice cleaner more vibrant skin. The process begins from the inside out. Most people report an increase in energy and healthier hair within the first weeks of use.

Will my skin tone go back to its original colour once I stop using it?

The effects can last a long time, as long as you avoid unprotected sun exposure. You would need minimum maintenance once you have achieved your desired results. To ensure you get the most out of these treatments, try to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear high SPF sunscreen like SPF 50 and above if you are in the sun.

How much will it cost me?

Our glutathione range is currently on promotion priced between R350 to R1100, normal price is from R400 to R1500 for a month’s supply.

We would recommend starting with double strength combo until you reach your desired tone then adjusting down accordingly as you maintain.
