Today’s best skin-whitening products rely upon natural, non-toxic ingredients while taking advantage of the latest research and technology. Glutathione, or gamma-glutamylcysteinylglycine (GSH), helps to lighten, whiten, and restore skin from the inside out.
That’s one of the reasons the latest skin-care advances for mature skin rely on this tiny protein molecule formed from three amino acids: gamma glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine.
Oxidation and oxidative stress
Researchers and physicians often talk about free radicals and oxidative stress which cause the body to work less well. As oxidative “rust” happens, the body’s cells lose glutathione, a powerful healing and protective agent.
Low glutathione levels are associated with diseases such as cataracts, cancer, atherosclerosis, and many others. Research indicates glutathione will defend the body against oxidation and exogenous toxins, including pesticides, benzenes, and pesticide compounds.
These attackers wreak havoc on the skin — which is visible for the world to see — and important, on unseen vital organs and processes. Today, researchers continue to study how increasing glutathione levels can support the immune system, digestive tract, and organs.
Of course, the skin is the body’s largest organ!
There’s a lot of talk these days about glutathione’s usefulness as a safe and natural skin-whitening ingredient. Physicians and researchers know that glutathione stores diminish in the body with age.
Some physicians, including researcher Rob Keller, M.D. and his team, believe that higher glutathione levels help the body to fight a host of diseases associated with aging.
Medical scientists believe that glutathione may also help to reduce wrinkles, creases, and skin discoloration while improving skin texture. Regular use of glutathione aids the skin’s ability to hold moisture and thereby reduces its dry appearance or enlarged pores. Moist skin is more supple and feels better, too.
According to authors M. Varinia Michalun and Joseph DiNardo, (Skin Care and Cosmetics Ingredient Dictionary, 2014) glutathione actually inactivates the enzyme associated with melanin pigmentation (tyrosinase). It works to stop new hyper-pigmentation as it “depigments” the skin.
Glutathione also boosts the skin’s oxygen levels and intracellular metabolism while reducing redness associated with inflammation. Some forms of the glutathione molecule perform extra duty by helping the body make Vitamin D.
Another natural remedy to the rescue
Because glutathione is considered a “master antioxidant,” the latest, safest skin-whitening treatments include natural glutathione. Sun damage, or free radical damage in the body, can cause changes in skin color over time, and supplemental glutathione may help the body to remedy this damage.
Flawless Beauty and Skin is one of the retailers that offers the latest skin-whitener technologies and skin-whitening products to the global marketplace.
Always go for safety first
It’s important to note that some skin whiteners or lightening agents offered by foreign retailers may contain heavy metals such as mercury. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), companies in Thailand, Pakistan, China, the Philippines, Lebanon, Mexico, and even in the U.S. have recently manufactured and sold skin lighteners containing mercury.
Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety confirms these products are usually less expensive and easily purchased from Internet sellers.
