Did you know that your palms actually produce a dermal protein that acts as a natural inhibitor of melanin production? Well, until a few weeks ago, we didn’t either.
So basically, the fibroblasts in your palms produce a DKK1 dermal protein that is able to prevent the formation of melanin, which is where the region tends to be fairer than the rest of your body. Inspired by this action, beauty brand Sisley has discovered a new ingredient Egyptian Myrobalan extract, which stimulates your fibroblasts ability to produce the DKK1 protein to give you with a radiant, clear complexion.
The Egyptian Myrobalan extract can be found in the new Sisley Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum ($430), which promises to brighten skin in just 15 days. The serum also has a patented complex of four active ingredients – pea peptide extract, Hexylresorcinol, wild thyme extract and vitamin B3 – which is said to be able act on each of the four stages of melanin production to prevent the formation of dark spots.
This luxe concentrate also helps to protect against environmental attacks and inflammation, which can cause stress to skin, leading to dullness and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin E and Alpha Bisabolol helps to fight against oxidation and soothe skin, so it looks more radiant and feels healthier.
We tried the Sisley Phyto-Blanc Pure Bright Activating Serum for two weeks, twice a day, to test its efficacy. One thing we instantly loved about it is it’s creamy, fresh texture that melts into skin and leaves a soft, velvety finish.
Even though we didn’t see any change to our complexion after a week, by day 10, we noticed that our skin looked clearer. And at the end of the second week, our face looked more even and brighter. So while the serum is definitely pricey, it’s definitely fast working and worth its price tag.
