What is Diacetyl Boldine?

Its main function is to promote an instantly luminous and even complexion, and it generates an immediate skin brightening effect.

What is its Origin & how is it used?

Diacetyl Boldine originates from Chilean boldo tree bark.

It is used within skincare products as part of cutting edge brightening technology, because of its ability to lighten and brighten skin tone. Diacetyl Boldine is encapsulated in the Pevonia lumafirm® Repair Cream within microcapsules called microspheres. Comprised of natural phospholipids from soy lecithin, the spheres micro size easily penetrates to deliver the active deep within the skin for immediate results. This high-tech liposomic structure performs in three different ways: it lightens pigmentation – regulating melanin formation by inhibiting tyrosinase; it blocks stress receptors for a rested, fresh looking complexion and it performs as an excellent anti-free radical.

How can Diacetyl Boldine help my skin?

Diacetyl Boldine helps to promote an instantly luminous and even complexion, while delivering an immediate brightening effect. Those suffering with dull, tired and ageing skin which needs a boost of rejuvenation, the powers of Diacetyl Boldine will help to promote an instantly luminous and more even complexion. Diacetyl Boldine serves as an immediate and lasting gradual skin brightener, helping to create a lighter and more uniform skin tone.
