UV exposure is one of the most common causes of visible skin aging such as pigmentation and wrinkles.
Topical sunblocks require re-application every 4 to 6 hours to remain effective. This is difficult to achieve for the busy professional on the go.
Furthermore, most people only apply sunblock on the face, leaving other areas of the skin without UV protection.
Though not a direct replacement of applied sunblock, the Maxi-White supplement acts as an oral sunblock offering enhanced skin whitening and sun protection for all areas of the skin in a convenient once-daily dose of 2 tablets.
Dr Edwin wrote an article here examining scientific studies and research done on oral sunblock supplements.
Maxi-White contains 4 clinically proven antioxidants that offer UV protection and skin whitening.
Colourless carotenoids are specially selected from non-GMO tomato fruits to obtain the highest concentration of phytoene and phytofluene.
These powerful antioxidants inhibit melanin synthesis, reduces pigmentation and lightens skin tone. In addition, harmful UVA and UVB rays are absorbed by colourless carotenoids, reducing formation of free radicals thereby protecting the skin from premature sun damage and aging.
Polypodium Leucotomos has gained popularity in recent years as a herbal sourced oral sunscreen. Many clinical studies have shown that oral consumption of polypodium from fern leaf extracts is effective in protecting the skin from UV damage. Similar to colourless carotenoids, Polypodium Leucotomos exhibits excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It inhibits free radical formation in skin cells, reducing UV induced DNA damage, helping to preserve youthful-looking skin.
Glutathione is one of the most popular and powerful antioxidants associated with skin whitening and reduction of pigmentation. It inhibits melanin (pigment) formation at the cellular level, changes the skin’s melanin pathway from synthesizing dark pigmented melanin (eumelanin) to creating light-pigmented melanin (phaeomelanin) and removes free radicals which causes premature skin aging.
L-cysteine is a potent antioxidant that suppresses the formation of pigmentation, accelerates skin renewal and stimulates production of glutathione.
The end result is whiter, younger-looking skin with increased UV protection.
