Glutathione treatment is a trending skin whitening and brightening treatment among celebrities such as Beyonce and also many East Asian women who yearn for fair radiant skin. While some say that it is an effective skin whitening and brightening treatment, it is also quite costly.

Laneige has recently reformulated their White Plus Renew Original Essence with the world’s first of its kind Cell-Water-Glow Technology which can now give us a similar effect as the Glutathione treatment minus the excessively high cost! Isn't this amazing....

With this new technology, not only are the melanin cells on our revitalised but the dead skin cells too, with both types of cells charged to enhance its ability to absorb more moisture and nutrients. Melanin cells that are charged will also be repressed of melanin production which further promotes brightening of the cells. As a result, charged up cells will produce a more translucent tone up effect with a more even skin tone.

While the White Plus Renew Original Essence_EX still maintains its 2 Tones Up and Brightening in 8 weeks, Laneige has also enhanced its patented Bio-brightening Technology – the Advanced MelaCrusherTM.

The Advanced MelaCrusherTM works in three ways: -
1. Penetrates 2x deeper into melanin cells with a new key ingredient; green tea protein
2. Offers 2x stronger brightening effect with twice the concentration of melanin crusher truffle yeast 3. Offers purer 2x tone up with Saururus, a vegetable ingredient to further reduce skin irritation.

 The Advanced MelaCrusherTM functions to deploy our skin’s natural melanin to destroy excessive melanin in the skin through the stimulation of our natural autophagy biological process. NEW key ingredients and formula used are: -

1. Green Tea Protein Extracts that helps inhibit melanin formation and block melanin transfer from melanocytes to skin cells. It also helps to improve skin pigmentation, skin darkening and dullness.

2. Truffle Yeast Extract Concentrate x 2 that triggers the autophagy process to digest melanin along with toxins, waste and impurities that are the main cause of yellowish skin

3. Saururus a vegetable ingredient that functions as an effective anti-oxidant which helps to restore healthy colour to the skin by strengthening the blood vessels in the dermis hence reducing facial redness. It also helps block melanin transfer to achieve the brightening effect

A clinical study was conducted on 22 females aged 20 to 36 to study the efficacy of the White Plus Renew Original Essence on improved skin tone, skin moisture, skin gloss, skin translucency and skin colour homogeneity.

The tests were conducted at different stages; immediately after application, 3 days after application, 4 weeks after application and 8 weeks after application.

The results indicated that after 8 weeks, the melanin index of the area was decreased by 3.6% whereas skin moisture increased with a statistically significant level of 25.8% and 21.6% in 8 weeks for both pigmented and non-pigmented sites respectively.

Apart from that, skin gloss showed an increasing rate of 8.3 % after 8 weeks and skin translucency showed an improved rate of 3% after 8 weeks.

The White Plus Renew Original Essence_EX, 40ml (RM210) is now available at all Laneige beauty counters and boutiques nationwide, so if you want to be as fair as Snow White, do get yours now....
