Walking through the ISPA expo, a photo caught my eye of a woman with a serious facial scar under her eye, which I later found out was from an operation to remove a tumor. The scar was in a T shape, showing the scar just after surgery, this was a very serious facial scar. Next to this photo, were other photos of the same woman with the scar virtually invisible.
In speaking to Beatrice De Borg the CEO and Co-Founder of Swiss Skin Care, she explained how these photos were taken by the women herself before after she had used Dr H Bellins Scar and Stretch Mark Cream; the results were so unexpected from a body treatment that was used on the face. This led Dr Bellin to push ahead to address dark spots on the skin.
Dr. H Bellins new breakthrough “Dark Spot Away “Intensive Correcting & Brightening Gel, is a new treatment solution to decrease the appearance of unwanted pigmentation. At the recent ISPA conference the issue of pigmentation, sun damage and forms of age spots was a question that many spa owners wanted to address and have a product that would give results.
The main cause of the dark spots that appear on the skin is the over production of melanin, which is the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, the over production forms dark deposits in the skin.
As in both the retail skin care and professional skin care area, there are many products on sale, the Swiss Skin Repairs scientific team was not satisfied with the results that were being offered, and wanted to conquer the problem of hyper pigmentation. This took four years of intensive research to find a solution to normalize the melanin production.
The team worked on a rare white rose, the core cells were extracted and used to regulate the tyrosinease by maintaining a healthy respiration among the cells, the team continued to assure success and at the same time approached the melanin over production from another angle.
The theory is that even if the tyrosinease production is under control, there is another with problem maker in the skin the copper. The copper is floating around and constantly searching to hook onto a tyrosine molecule and continue the production of more melanin, Vitamin C is a perfect blocker for this, but it denaturates quickly, so that once the client opens the product the efficacy of the vitamin C diminishes at least 50%.
A further 3 years was spent finding a way to create a long lasting vitamin C that was not affected by air and light. The process was awarded a patent and is unique in the skin care industry to the Dr. H. Bellin product Dark Spot Away.
The efficacy of each ingredient is documented and backed with clinical trials, the issue of clinical trials is important for skin care consumers. One of the most important issues in skincare at the moment is pigmentation, how many people went into the sun without protection and even if sun protection was used if often was not reapplied within the correct time. These and many other mistakes have resulted in a generation that now suffers from serious skin pigmentation, which leads them on an endless path to try and understand how to remove the damage.
Research and understanding chemicals that are now in professional products that develop solutions is a partnership the consumer needs to do their research on, otherwise a lot of money is going to be spent on products that do not contain solutions.
When clinical trials are available it shows the company is confident that the results will speak for themselves, the Dr. H. Bellin line is a boutique range, easy to use and recommended for specific concerns. The Dark Spots Away is available in New York at Dr. H Bellin 105 East 73rd Street, New York, NY 10021-3541
