Does a Seaweed skin whitening mask is really effective? I Seaweed face mask review

Seaweed skin whitening face pack videos, showing magical results after application. Nowadays these kinds of videos are getting viral on the internet but the question here arises is that, does it actually work as shown in the videos or it is just another marking scam? Let’s find out.

Seaweed skin whitening mask ingredients

The product contains algae seeds which when mixed with water, absorbs the water quickly and turns into a stretchable thing that can be adjusted on the face or on different body parts.

According to a study published on Molecular Diversity Preservation International, seaweed seeds contain vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Seaweed oil is already being used in a lot of skincare products to provide skin hydration. Also, it is known to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

What causes skin tan?

Our skin tissue contains Tyrosinase enzyme which is responsible for the production of melanin pigment. This melanin pigment is responsible for different skin colors. When we are in direct sunlight, the Tyrosinase enzyme boosts the production of melanin pigment which causes skin tanning. Not only does melanin cause skin tan but also, it protects the skin from harmful UV radiation from the sun.

This Seaweed mask can actually whiten the skin?

Tyrosinase inhibitors can inhibit the production of excess melanin and reduce the tanning process and can provide a lighter complexion. Scientists have been trying hard to find a natural source of Tyrosinase inhibitors but they are very toxic. Researches found out various seaweed extracts can be used as a natural source of Tyrosinase inhibitors which can cause skin whitening. The seaweed extract is being used in many cosmetic products.
