SkinLite Cream general information

What is SkinLite Cream used for?

SkinLite Cream 25g is a topical skin cream used to treat melasma, a chronic skin disorder characterised by symmetrical, blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation.  Melasma is caused by over production of melanin by melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in the skin.  Melasma is thought to have a genetic predisposition and may be triggered by various factors including sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone treatments, some toiletries, and hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone).  SkinLite Cream is a combination treatment that lightens the skin and reduces the risk of dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin that can be associated with using skin lighteners alone.  SkinLite Cream is also used to help reduce and lighten pigmented liver spots or age spots, also known as senile lentigines associated with aging and sun damaged skin.

How does SkinLite Cream work?

SkinLite Cream 25g contains a combination of medications that are used together to treat the chronic skin disorder melasma.  The production of melanin is controlled by the enzyme tyrosine, which is found in the melanosomes of melanocytes.  Hydroquinone in SkinLite Cream is a tyrosinase inhibitor that works by blocking the action of tyrosinase, and this inhibits the formation of melanin by melanocytes.  Hydroquinone in SkinLite Cream also increases the breakdown of melanosomes that contain the melanin.  As the amount of melanin produced decreases the darkened skin gradually lightens to match normal skin colour.  Tretinoin in SkinLite Cream is an active metabolite of Vitamin A and is a keratolytic medication that works by binding to specific retinoic acid receptors in the nucleus of skin cells and affects the way skin cells behave, which regulates cell growth and differentiation; it also has anti-inflammatory properties.  Tretinoin is thought to act by enhancing skin epithelial cell proliferation and accelerating epithelial differentiation; it also blocks the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increases the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells.  The combined effect of these actions is to speed up skin cell turnover which has the effect of lightening the skin.  SkinLite Cream also contains the synthetic corticosteroid mometasone, which is a medium potency anti-inflammatory that is often used for topical application as it concentrates in the skin but does not enter the blood circulation and, therefore, has minimal systemic effect.  Mometasone in SkinLite Cream works by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes; and also narrows and constricts blood vessels that have become dilated (widened) and leaky allowing other inflammatory cells into the skin to escalate the inflammatory response.  The antiinflammatory actions of Mometasone in SkinLite Cream reduce the risk of developing contact dermatitis that may be caused by hydroquinone and tretinoin.  This combination of medications for treatment of melasma has been found to provide better improvement than treatment with a single medication.1,2
