Cosmelan® is a 2-step intensive topical treatment system designed to reduce and regulate stubborn and dense pigmentation. Cosmelan's blend of synergistic ingredients works quickly, resulting in an effective reduction of undesirable pigment. Cosmelan regulates the melanin activity, causing the pigment producing cells to slow down their abnormal over-production and function in a more uniform way. Cosmelan is "sun-friendly" so you can use the products and still have an active outdoor lifestyle (with proper sunscreen use, of course!) It works well on all skin types - even darker toned skin. Cosmelan will also produce a slight initial peel which helps refinish the skin surface while diminishing hyper-pigmentation.
