    "Depigmentation Factor Bioflavonoids consists of citrus bioflavonoids encapsulated in nanospherical liposomes. These citrus bioflavonoids are obtained by aqueous extraction, nebulisation and fractionation to produce a product high in hesperidine, eriodictyol and naringenin, which is then encapsulated in nanospheres to stablilise the actives during delivery to the skin. An independent in vitro evaluation has shown that Depigmentation Factor Bioflavonoids totally inhibits tyrosinase activity and thus pigment formation in the skin to the same extent as hydroquinone, the reference substance. This product is designed for use in skin lightening products and anti-age skin care products to prevent age spots and irregular skin pigmentation."

    "Bioflavonoids, also known as vitamin P, are found in citrus fruits and other foods with vitamin C, and other medicinal plants such as gingko biloba. It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiallergenic, antiviral and anti-carcinogenic properties, that is why it is used in vitamin supplements and skin care products. Bioflavonoids enhance the absorption of vitamin C. It also prevents the oxidation of vitamin C, thus maximizing the vitamin’s benefits. Since bioflavonoids are not naturally found or produced by the human body, it should be taken through supplements and topical products. Skin care products have been using vitamin C with bioflavonoids for skin whitening and protection from free radicals."

    "Over time, the upper layers of the skin collect dead, pigmented skin cells that stick together and form dark spots such as freckles, moles or age spots. To remedy the collection of old, dark skin cells, you need a face and body scrub. Lemons have natural bleaching properties and are safe enough to use on most skin types. Lemon scrub is loaded with citric acid and vitamins A and P. Although not classified as a vitamin per se, vitamin P is the term given to bioflavonoids, which are antioxidant properties found in citrus fruits and some vegetables that help the body absorb vitamin C better and fight off free radicals, toxins damaging to cell function and renewal."
