Magnalyte Cream 15gm
Magnalyte Cream (Flucinolone Acetonide/Hydroquinone/Tretinoin) is a triple combination cream which works for melasma by lightening the skin, reducing inflammation and increasing exfoliation. Melasma is a skin condition which affects the appearance of the facial skin, causing brown patches to appear. These are due to excess melanin production (the pigment that gives the skin its color). Although experts are not entirely sure of what causes this condition, it could be related to pregnancy or medicines which have been taken by the affected patient. Sunlight is also believed to trigger it.
Three ingredients are contained in this cream. Flucinolone is classified as a mild anti-inflammatory corticost***d, and it is said work by reducing inflammation on the skin. Hydroquinine (also called dihydroxybenzene) is a topical skin brightening agent which works by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called tyrosinase. This in turn helps to prevent the formation of melanin and contributes to skin dipegmentation, allowing for the melanin patches to become brighter. Finally, tretinoin (also called all-trans retinoic acid) is added. It is a form of vitamin A which plays a key role in cellular growth and regeneration. Topical application helps to rejuvenate and revitalize the surface of the skin.
