Pigment inhibitors help treat and prevent all forms of hyperpigmentation. They reduce and regulate melanin production by inhibiting Tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for melanin production. We love pigment inhibitors all year round in Australia, but particularly in the Summer when sun exposure increases.


Features of Top Pigment Inhibitors

The best pigment inhibitors in Australia feature a combination of active ingredients that target different stages of melanin production. Look for ingredients such as:

  • Hydroquinone: This gold-standard ingredient blocks tyrosinase, an enzyme crucial for melanin production.
  • Kojic Acid: Derived from mushrooms, kojic acid also inhibits melanin formation, offering a brightening effect.
  • Arbutin: A natural skin brightener that works similarly to hydroquinone, with a gentler profile.
  • Vitamin C: A potent antioxidant that helps brighten existing pigmentation and prevents the formation of new dark spots.
  • Retinol: This form of Vitamin A boosts cell turnover, fading existing pigmentation and revealing smoother, brighter skin.


How to Choose and Use Pigment Inhibitors

Choosing the right pigment inhibitor and using it effectively is key to achieving the best results. Consider the following:

  • Skin Type: Consider your skin type (oily, dry, sensitive) when selecting a pigment inhibitor to ensure optimal results and minimise potential irritation.
  • Pigmentation Severity: Gentler ingredients like kojic acid might suffice for mild hyperpigmentation. More stubborn discolouration may benefit from stronger options like hydroquinone.
  • Safety and Application: Always patch-test new products and follow instructions carefully. Many pigment inhibitors sensitise the skin, so consistent sun protection is essential. Seeking advice from a skincare professional or your doctor can help you determine the best approach.

Important Note: Most pigment inhibitors are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, please refer to the individual product descriptions and always check with your physician.
