Skin Whitening Cream
American people dream for tan skin while Asian people dream for fair skin. A research was presented this week at annual meeting of American Chemical Society in Anaheim, Calif. Researchers say that plants chemicals can make the skin white.
At present skin products contain Mercury and chemical Hydroquinone, it is a Carcinogen which can cause soreness, itching and skin cancer but now researchers have found a plant chemical that can help in whitening of skin.
A researcher Hui-Min Wang of Kaohsiung Medical University in Taiwan says that two chemicals are extracted from Cinnamomum plant; it reduces the pigments of skin up to 50% in four days. These chemicals help in making skin snowy white.
These chemicals functions by blocking the enzymes Tyrosinase. This enzyme controls the production of melanin pigments which makes our skin and eyes dark.
A researcher Wang told My Health News Daily that the action of these chemicals is 100 times more effective than other skin whitening creams. This is Chinese Herbal medicine plant and it has been used in medicine for about 1,000 or 2,000 years.
Wang and his friends checked these chemicals on the Embryo of ZebraFish. This fish has black bands of pigments and all these black pigments were faded and become white after the use of Cinnamomum Subavenium for just 4 days.
There are many similarities between Zebra Fish pigmentation to humans and due to this reason the researchers think that it will have a good effect on the human’s pigmentation too. It was found that the chemicals were not poisonous to the Zebra skin and the human skin cells.
Wang is now looking for the cosmetic companies to make a cream of Cinnamomum Subavenium chemicals for the use of human beings.
