Ingredient science behind its effectiveness
In the medical field, tranexamic acid is a reliable haemostatic agent during surgery and in the case of accidental injuries. In medical cosmetics, tranexamic acid is used for skin treatments: already small amounts can bleach pigmented spots and reduce redness – also in combination with instrument-based techniques.
In dermatology the effects of tranexamic acid have been known for a long time, namely in the context of pigment disorders. The first report on the treatment of melasmas with tranexamic acid dates back to 1979, the intensity of a melasma was significantly reduced within a period of two to three weeks.
Melasma or hyper-pigmentation forms in a variety of ways. They are triggered by miscellaneous endogenic and exogenous influences such as: UV radiation of the sunlight photosensitization, or in other words, the reduced sensitivity threshold of the skin to light caused by essential oils for instance hormonal influences, as for example during pregnancy inflammation mediators such as prostaglandins and cytokines (post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation) AGE (Advanced Glycation End products), or in other words, products that form in the body due to the reaction of proteins or lipids with carbohydrates; they are held responsible for a variety of health implications other deposits of endogenous metabolic products. Tranexamic acid is effective after oral administration and after topical application. A variety of biochemical mechanisms have been discussed, among them the inhibition of tyrosinase and the preceding processes such as the reduction of free arachidonic acid and prostaglandin E2. Besides the bleaching effect, tranexamic acid also reduces the translucent reddish colour of the superficial blood vessels. The result is an even complexion.
It regulates melanogenesis – and affects the process of melanogenesis, either reducing or increasing production of pigment under the influence of UV rays.
Lactobionic acid includes galactose, which is famous for its wound-healing properties. The acid promotes faster regeneration and repair of damaged skin. It has the ability to stimulate wound healing, and can be used successfully on skin that is prone to acne and inflammation.
