BOTANICAL VS. SYNTHESIZED There continues to be some question between the preferred use of botani- cal ingredients and synthesized formu- lations. On one side is the belief that botanical extract ingredients are gentler to the skin than synthesized or purely chemical formulations. On the other side is concern about whether those botanical ingredients are as effective as their chemical counterparts. Traditionally, treating hyperpigmen- tation chemically has meant bleaching with either hydroquinone or kojic acid, says Chillseyzn. "Both of these ingredi- ents are fairly fast acting and effective, but they can be cytotoxic to melanocy- tyes in large amounts," he notes. "Be- cause of this, the skin may respond to these chemicals as it would to an as- sault and counter by producing more melanin, which means that if the use of these chemicals is stopped, hyperpig- mentation can actually be made worse. One of the great benefi ts of using plant extract- and peptide-based products for skin brightening is that there's little or no chance of doing serious harm to the skin." In addition, notes Khanna, "One of the key benefi ts of incorporat- ing plant-based ingredients into natural skin care is that our body automatically knows how to process them." Graf cautions that effectiveness de- pends on formulation and the knowl- edge of the developer in using botani- cal ingredients. "You have to be assured that your source uses high-quality bo- tanicals, knows which parts of the plant to use and is well-versed on how to handle them during formulation. Ask for effi cacy studies whenever possible," she suggests. For the best results, Chillseyzn recom- mends looking for products or systems that work at several points along the melanin production pathway. "If I were to look for a magic bullet, that would be it," he says. "Because there are numerous opportunities of attack possible along the pathway, multiple attacks can be made cooperatively in- stead of competitively, so they can work together for an overall better effect."
