What is Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex™ ?

Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex™ is the natural alternative for achieving EVEN. BRIGHTER. SKIN. Yllume is the safest skin lightening system in the world suitable for even the most sensitive of skins, using Colourless Carotenoids as our hero ingredient. We have consciously avoided common lightening agents such as hydroquinone, kojic acid, arbutin, liquorice extract, and peeling agents, as we know from experience some of these are unstable and for others there is a high risk of inflammation and irritation.

 

What are Colourless Carotenoids?

Colourless Carotenoids used in Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex™ are derived from naturally grown, non-genetically modified white tomatoes, that take a year to grow in the Mediterranean.  Colourless Carotenoids are naturally found in the outer most layers of the skin at a level of 38%. Those deficient in these carotenoids show signs of hyperpigmentation, sensitivity, acne and dry skin. Yllume System contains high levels of these carotenoids, thus is able to address these issues via a unique approach as never done before, delivering unique lightening actives both topically and internally.

 

How do Colourless Carotenoids lighten the skin?

Colourless Carotenoids have a direct effect on skin pigmentation by reducing the melanin content in the skin cells. With their active anti-inflammatory properties, they protect against free radicals, balance melanin production for a more even skin complexion, help collagen formation and defend against UV rays, protecting against premature ageing.

 

What is the equivalent of tomatoes consumption used in Yllume?

Colourless Carotenoids – in the volumes present in Yllume’s exclusive PhytoflORAL® Complex combined with our bioavailable delivery system provides the equivalent protection as consuming 30 tomatoes daily, without the potential to discolour the skin.

 

 

What is PhytoflORAL®  and how does the Yllume Skin Supplement lighten my skin?

PhytoflORAL® has a direct effect on skin pigmentation by reducing and controlling the melanin content within the skin cells. It contains the active compounds needed for lightening and brightening the skin, evening tone and works synergistically with the supplement’s other active ingredients delivering nutrients where needed from the inside out to combat signs of aging. Once at the cell site, PhytoflORAL® protects the DNA from oxidative stress, UVB / UVA damage and sunburn. PhytoflORAL’s properties combined with Yllume’s unique delivery system for better bioavailability are delivered at a cellular level for more intense effects and benefits and contain the active component needed for lightening and brightening the skin as well as stimulating collagen production, working synergistically with the supplement’s other active ingredients to raise glutathione levels in the blood naturally.

 

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a tripeptide molecule produced by the liver. It’s the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent aging, free radicals peroxidation, oxidative stress. Glutathione has the ability to lighten dark skin and pigmentation, including dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots by altering the melanocytes’ metabolic processes to turn dark pigmentation (eumelanin) into light pigmentation (pheomelanin).

 

 

How quickly will I see results using the Yllume Ultimate Illuminating Complex?

Brightening action starts from the first application, however noticeable results can be seen gradually, depending on an individual’s skin condition. Some people notice a skin lightening effect from 2 weeks – 6 weeks of regular twice daily use, the average appears to be around 5 weeks. It depends on an individual’s skin chemistry.

 

Is there any scientific data that proves the effectiveness of oral administration of the Skin Supplement?

Yes. Please visit our clinical trials page.

 

How long will the results last?

The longer you use the Yllume System, the better the results! Yllume actually works on reducing excess melanin from the inside out and rejuvenates the collagen in the skin, so results last for months and will continue to work as long as you use the Yllume System daily.

 

How long will I be able to take the Yllume Skin Supplement and are the results reversible, once I stop taking the supplement?

Yllume Skin Supplement is a natural food supplement, and it can be consumed for as long as you need. The Yllume Skin Supplement is free from hydroquinone, which is harmful for the skin and health in general and has been banned in the EU countries, therefore the results are reversible, to the extent that if the consumption of the supplement is stopped, over a longer period of time, the skin may progressively revert to its original form, in an estimated 6 months period gap.

Why is the Skin Supplement in the form of capsules and not tablets?

Tablet manufacturing not only destroy the actives during manufacture to ‘glue’ the ingredients together, but a tablet is harder to digest and break down in the stomach, and thus does not reap the full benefits of the product. Yllume uses ‘Vegi Caps’ which dissolve in the stomach and the ingredients are not exposed to heat or glue, rather are safely encapsulated without any additional filling agents to ensure maximum efficacy and potency.
