Oligopeptide-68

Oligopeptide-68

Oligopeptide-68 is a decapeptide (containing ten amino acids) with an Arg-Asp-Gly-Gln-Ile-Leu-Ser-Thr-Trp-Tyr sequence, the main active ingredient in β-WHITE™. It is a signal peptide that interacts with MITF (microphthalmia-associated transcription factor), inhibiting melanocyte differentiation and development.

In short, Oligopeptide-68 reduces tyrosinase that lessens melanin production, fighting against melasma, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. Studies showed that it's more effective than hydroquinone, without advanced side effects.
