The earliest known property of OPITAC™ Glutathione, the one that brought it to consumer attention, was its ability to make skin brighter, lighter, and generally improve its appearance. We now know that it achieves this by working in concert with the body’s own natural functions. OPITAC™ inhibits the activity of tyrosinase, in turn, suppressing the development of eumelanin. At the same time, it disrupts the synthesis pathway of pheomelanin. This enhances protection against UV damage provided by topical skin care products (supplements and cosmetics) and reduces the appearance of dark areas. OPITAC™ makes skin appear healthier, suppler; achieved, in part, by accelerating the production of type I collagen. The combination of OPITAC™ and collagen peptides results in a synergistic effect that even enhances the benefits of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C.
Unlike other, topical treatments, the mechanisms of those with OPITAC™ work at the molecular level, neutralizing free radicals in the system, scavenging heavy metals, and defending against environmental pollution. Today we have proof that daily intake of OPITAC™ renews this precious commodity throughout the system to infuse the skin’s appearance with a youthful tone, helping maintain it as we age and our natural supply diminishes.
