Product

The effects of Golite cream are best seen when administered along with the Active Melasma Drug. 

Golite cream is safe & effective for long-term use; however, for its initial effects to show, it must be used for at least 4 to 6 weeks.

For better results, Golite cream should be used in the pattern of a dot matrix.

USV Golite contains micronized titanium dioxide, which is a physical sunblock protecting against UVB rays. SPF or a sunlight protection cream, is a measure that is used to protect the skin from UVB rays, a radiation that causes sunburn, damages skin, and can even contribute to skin cancer. USV Golite contains 0.5% titanium dioxide in a micronized form, which, in comparison to SPF,  provides weaker protection. Hence, the use of a cream for sun protection is recommended along with Golite cream for better protection when stepping out. 

 USV Golite is a combination of natural depigmenting agents. Apart from the six natural ingredients, shuttle kojic acid, Sabi White, pTerowhite, nanobright, licorice extract, and galanga extract, there are various other ingredients present in the formulations. These include olive oil, jojoba oil , kokum butter, and vitamin E. This combination of ingredients gives the Golite cream a pleasant fragrance and texture.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant drug that is used topically in dermatology to treat hyperpigmentation. However, even with an optimum dosage, it proves to be unstable and difficult to deliver into the dermis, even with an optimum dosage, which in turn produces a non-uniformed result. 

Golite cream formula is time-tested and ensures better bioavailability because of the shuttle kojic acid component. 

Oftentimes dermatologists may combine the Golite cream formula with Vitamin -C to get a better, faster response. Occasionally, when prescribed by the doctor, the Golite cream formula will suffice for  long-term therapy of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and melasma.

Sunscreen use is recommended as a preventive or supportive treatment for all melanising disorder treatments. Hence, yes, a sunlight protection cream is recommended for use in tandem with Golite.

Golite is a non-comedogenic product.

 Golite cream is recommended for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and other hypermelanosis, including melasma and uneven skin tone.

The Golite cream formula is composed using natural ingredients and does not include steroids or hydroquinone. It is safe and effective. 

Dr. Kligman's regimen and The Modified Kligman's regimen are the textbook recommendations for the ingredients used.

Skin Concern

While treating hyperpigmentation, it is highly recommended to wear high SPF cream for sun protection to avoid further damage from the sun. Contact your dermatologist for better advice on effective skin lightening products.

here are an array of measures that can be adopted to reduce the risk of developing hyperpigmentation.

Cream for sun protection

A sunlight protection cream with a PA+++ rating or an SPF of at least 30 is recommended. A daily application of two tablespoons on the parts of the face and body that are at risk of sun exposure is generally enough. Reapplication is generally recommended in cases of prolonged sun exposure. The ingredients of a sunlight protection cream should contain  physical ‘blockers’ or ‘reflectors’ of UV rays, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, in their formulation. Thoroughly check the ingredient list when shopping for a new sunscreen.

Essential vitamin intake

Insufficient amounts of vitamin B12 in the diet could lead to an onset of hyperpigmentation in the skin. Vegetarians and vegans should maintain a vitamin-rich diet, as sources of vitamin B12 are less common in a vegetarian diet. Vitamin B12 is commonly found in animal foods such as meat, eggs, shellfish, dairy, or from fortified breakfast cereals. Supplements of vitamin B12 are also available for consumption. 

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may cause patches at the healed site of an injury. The wound colour will range from light brown to black. These patches may also become darker if they are exposed to sunlight or UV rays.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a pigmentation that occurs after an injury. For example, a thermal burn or an inflammatory disorder of the skin. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by  dermatitis or skin infection is temporary. 

The most common areas that are affected by melasma are the face, the bridge of the nose, forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. Apart from these, areas of the body that are more exposed to sunlight may also see the effects of melasma, i.e. forearms, neck, and shoulders. A sunlight protection cream works well in these instances. 

Melasma occurs due to hormonal changes and, most of the time, it tends to develop during pregnancy, due to birth control pills, or hormone therapy. Stress and thyroid are other common factors that may cause melasma. Apart from the above, exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun affects the cells that control pigmentation, resulting in melasma. This can be prevented by using a cream for sun protection.

Melasma is a common skin pigmentation disorder that causes an increase in brown or gray patches on the skin, most often on the face. Golite cream is largely effective in treating melasma and other skin concerns. 

The most common types of hyperpigmentation include melasma, age spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. All these are peas of the same pod and can be treated with the right natural skin lightening creams. 

Lifestyle factors play a major role in the development of hyperpigmentation. However, some skin types may be more prone to it than others. For example, melasma develops due to genetic predispositions.

Hyperpigmentation can be caused due to acne, so acne-prone skin types are at an equal risk. People with darker skin fall under a high-risk category. Due to the difference in hormonal balance and cell activity of the skin, hyperpigmentation is common in people under the age of 50.  It can be treated with effective natural skin lightening creams prescribed by a doctor. 

A number of factors could be responsible for hyperpigmentation. These include:

- Acne scarring and eczema
- Cuts, scrapes, bug bites, and scratching
- Skin trauma and superficial burns
- Pregnancy hormonal changes
- Oral contraceptives
- Chemo drugs, topical steroids, and antibiotics
- Addison's disease
- Darker skin that’s vulnerable to pigment changes

UV rays, dry skin and/or damage to the skin barrier are primarily responsible for triggering or worsening hyperpigmentation. The former can be prevented by using a cream for sun protection.

Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which patches of skin become darker than usual. This happens when certain factors trigger the melanocytes, causing them to produce more melanin. Skin darkening may also be caused by the decline of endogenous or exogenous pigments, such as hemosiderin, iron, or heavy metals, in the dermis. This skin concern can be treated with dermatologist prescribed natural skin lightening creams.

The colour of a person’s skin is referred to as pigmentation. Healthy individuals typically have normal skin. Sickness or injury is another leading cause of hyperpigmentation, which can be corrected with natural skin lightening creams. If you’re unwell or there is an injury to your skin, it may cause the skin to look darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation).

While there exist various treatments for hyperpigmentation, their effectiveness may differ. Your dermatologist may prescribe medications or natural skin lightening creams as an adjunct to chemical peels. A topical treatment consisting of skin lightening agents, such as hydroquinone, kojic acid, azelaic acid, tretinoin, etc., is the first line of therapeutic modality for pigmentary disorders. 

The effects of Melasma are most commonly seen in 40-year-old females. It is uncommon in men.

Other

Kojic acid is present in many skin lightening creams including Golite cream. It:

- Inhibits the production of melanin in the skin
- Acts as an antioxidant
- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties

Kojic acid (KA) is a natural metabolite produced from fungi that has the ability to inhibit tyrosinase activity in the synthesis of melanin. The major applications of KA derivatives in medicine are based on their biocompatibility and antimicrobial properties. In addition, KA and its derivatives are used as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, radio protectives, skin-lightening and antiproliferative agents in skin creams, lotions, and soaps. Due to its tyrosinase inhibitory activity, KA has the ability to act as a UV protector, suppressor of hyperpigmentation, as well as a restraint for melanin formation.

The effects of naturally occurring skin-lightening agents can be seen by their regulation of melanin production through a number of mechanisms. Naturally occurring bioactive compounds, including flavonoids, terpenoids, polysaccharides, and coumarin derivatives, all of which exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, are now becoming increasingly recognized for their anti-melanogenic properties. Golite cream is enriched with skin lightening agents that work well in treating various skin concerns.
