- Inhibits the over production of melanin by blocking melanin stimulating hormone to even out skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation
Nonapeptide-1 is a skin lightening peptide, derived from the melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH). It prevents the activity of tyrosine in the melanocytes, melanin synthesis inhibition and helps to even out your skin tone by lessening hyper-pigmentation. This process reduces the formation of unwanted pigmentation, allowing for the control over skin tone and brown spots.
