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...
Just received my latest order from Lotioncrafter and am, as usual, thrilled with it. Lotioncrafter's products and service are so superior to any other vendor that I can't imagine ordering from anyone else. Thank you so very, very much!
Kathryn Matlack

I ordered some of the Shea Nilotica from LC and it's been sitting in my supply area for a few weeks because my household has been so busy. I am just now getting around to trying it for the 1st time and let me just say...WOW!! I am head over heels in LOOOVE with the Shea Nilotica. I've used other re-fined and unrefined she butters but this is by far superior. I can't believe how creamy it is and how satiny my skin feels. Right after I used a little I slathered some on my 3 yr old! Oh how happy I am that I ordered the 5 pound bag rather than just a sample size after I called Jen to inquire about it. LC rocks!
Kara Knox

Wow, quality products and SUPER FAST shipping! I ordered this on a Tuesday, and it was shipped THAT day. I received it just two days later. Just wonderful. Thank you so much!
Jessica

WOW! How fun to make my own Quality skin care products. I'm financially challenged and I love that I can make a product that sells for $100 for a fraction of that! If you can follow a recipe, than you can follow these instructions.I recommend ordering the scale and paddle mixer, too. They're a time saver. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Deneen
