Alpaflor® Gigawhite™  - ECOCert Approved

Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ is a skin lightener developed from Alpine plants by DSM.  Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ can brighten and even skin tone as well as reduce the color intensity of age spots.

Alpaflor® Gigawhite™’s development is the result of a research program in which about a hundred plants were selected for their tyrosinase-inhibiting capacity. Dopachrome formation was measured using a spectrophotometer.  Of the hundred plants tested, 15 were selected for their in vitro tyrosinase-inhibiting activity and were subsequently tested on cell cultures. In the cell cultures, 7 plants manifested even greater tyrosinase-inhibiting activity.  These were active not only on whole cells (with their membranes) but also on cell lysates (the membranes having been destroyed). It was this discovery that led to the development of  Alpaflor® Gigawhite™. The plants were combined in a proprietary and synergistic ratio maximizing its activity and producing an even more effective compound. In in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo tests, Alpaflor® Gigawhite™ has an effect on the tyrosinase-inhibiting mechanism involved in melanin biosynthesis.

Our Customers Say...
Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.

I love Lotioncrafter products. I just ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter for the first time and it is smooth, creamy and amazing. Great for my products! Delivery was quick and I received some extras. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Sandy Bouie, (The Honey Pot)

I am a newbie at lotion malling and really appreciate the information provided by Lotioncrafters. I purchased Lotion Making 101 and Jenny was kind enough to make sure I got the ebook without having to use my ancient desktop. I highly recommend the book. It makes the process and ingredient possibilities very clear. And the quick shipping is fabulous. Again, thank you.
