Skin lite is believed to act by inhibiting the steps in the tyrosine and tyrosinase pathway which ultimately results in formation of melanin synthesis. Hydroquinone which is one of content of the cream is responsible to inhibit the tyrosinase enzyme in forming the melanocytes. It decreases the production melanocytes and increases the breakdown melanosomes. Tretinoin protects hydroquinone from oxidation. Tretinoin reduces epidermal melanib and results in reduction of melanogenesis. Tretinoin also enhances the hydroquinone penetration through stratum corneum. The third content named Mometasone Furoate is believed to inhibit melanocyte metabolism and reduces inflammation.
