Uva Ursi is a plant with skin healing properties that can aid conditions such as Melasma (blotchy pigmented skin caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy) and Ochronosis. Uva-Ursi is considered a natural safer version of hydroquinone, containing a compound known as “alpha-arbutin”, which acts naturally to inhibit the production of melanin in skin, helping to gradually make the skin appear lighter. It also has powerful antioxidants which naturally protect against the damage of free radicals and UV rays.
Pomegranate peel contains Ellagic acid which helps to suppresses UV-induced skin pigmentation, by inhibiting the melanocytes from producing melanin, giving a lighter and more even skin tone. Ellagic Acid also stimulates the Fibroblast cells in our skin (responsible for production of collagen and elastin) leading to tighter skin and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants, and as well as greatly improving the health of individuals suffering from serious conditions or diseases, as a side-effect it was also found to lightening the skin by clearing the body of free radicals, that can lead to problems like hyperpigmentation and melasma. Glutathione also reduces the appearance of red spots and rough patches to create smoother and lighter skin.
Pine (pinus pinaster) Bark Extract (95% OPC)
Pine Bark Extract is a powerful lightening ingredient as it works to inhibit the production of melanin in the skin, greatly reducing the intensity of the skin’s pigmentation. Pine Bark Extract is considered highly effective in treating hyperpigmentation, particularly on darker areas of skin to make it lighter and create an even skin tone. Other benefits include reducing skin discolorations, brown spots and age spots.
Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Extract (15:1)
Liquorice extract is widely used to treat hyperpigmentation, and targets the darkening areas of the skin including age spots and freckles. It inhibits melanin production within the dark pigmented areas, making it appear lighter while also rejuvenating the skin, making it smoother. It contains the active compound Glabridin which acts as an inhibitor on the melanin-making enzyme that causes the skin to become darker when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. Glabridin reduces melanin production and also helps to rebalance the skin cells to make the appearance of an even skin tone, while also reducing darker areas of facial scarring (often caused by acne).
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Extract (95% Curcuminoids)
Turmeric has many widely documented benefits to the skin. has anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce skin blemishes, signs of inflammation and pigmentation.

Some extra stuff we wanted to explain
Many people continue to use topical creams to help improve their skin pigmentation, Although this can work to a certain extent in the short term, Lightening creams do not fully penetrate sufficiently through the skin’s upper layer Lightening creams to deliver sufficient active ingredients at the very source of melanin production, from deep inside the epidermis, the layer of skin where melanocytes are located.
Also lightening will depend on how the cream is applied, how much is used, and only on parts of the body the cream is used. This leads to lighter and darker areas of the body and to an uneven lightening effect and give patchy discolouration.
However, the CLOSE-UP Lightening supplement works from within, into the source of where ageing and pigmentation occurs, giving a more uniform lightening result throughout the body.
