Efficacy testing for ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF shows that it is capable of absorbing light in the UVA and UVB spectra. Additionally, fluorometer testing reveals that it is capable of emitting light in violet, green, blue, yellow and red visible light spectra. This study indicates that the product is capable of increasing luminescence so our skin will appear healthy and revitalized. Chromatherapy or color therapy is the use of colored light to treat various conditions. Recent studies have shown that blue light (420 nm) exhibits phototoxic effects on the heme metabolism of Propionibacterium acnes to inhibit this bacteria that causes acne on our skin. Other research has shown that blue light can improve inflammatory lesions by inhibiting pro-inflammatory cytokines. ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF is water-dispersible so it can be incorporated into a variety of cosmetic and personal care preparations.

.: Background :.

Selecting the right lighting is all the rage! From camera filters to effects that enhance our appearance, lighting has made its way to the forefront as a means of perfecting skin aesthetics. Depending on the type of light or its direction, light can accentuate imperfections, cause shadows and make fine lines and wrinkles more visible. The isolated polyphenols found in ACB Tonka Bean Bioferment PF allow us to harness the power of UV rays, which typically harm our skin, and use them to emit light in the visible spectrum, increasing the luminescence of our skin. The result is skin that appears bright and less wrinkled. The polyphenols also help to even the skin tone while masking imperfections and providing antioxidant protection from extrinsic damage.
