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.

She responds to all inquiries with lightening speed; generously shares her wealth of knowledge and expertise and really listens to requests for sourcing materials. In short, she's Absolutely Fabulous! I feel SO fortunate to have her as part of my trusted supply chain for nearly 10 years now.

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.
