A test carried out on pigmented epidermis equivalents indicated the efficacy of Regu-Scence at 3% to enhance the appearance of a more even skin tone. In vitro, this ingredient has shown a significant down-regulation of tyrosinase marker by up to 65% and of the recently discovered Melan-A marker by up to 30% in a 9-day test.
