This March, DHC will launch its Camu-Camu Whitening series in Singapore. This range uses the extract of the Camu-Camu fruit which, with its high Vitamin C content, is powerful enough to combat pigmentation yet gentle enough for all skin types.
As with DHC’s signature skincare range based on olive oil, the Camu-Camu range is the result of extensive research and development in the area of plant extracts, especially botanicals. A Japanese brand, it is no wonder that DHC has a deep understanding of Asian skin and whitening concerns. With this range, the brand not only aims to protect the skin, it also wants to enhance fairness, giving consumers clearer and more radiant-looking skin using the benefits of nature.
A fruit from the Amazon, Camu-Camu is the richest source of Vitamin C in the plant world. It has been proven to have healing properties, among its other skincare benefits.
Ideal for normal to dry skin types, the range is a medicated skincare solution to repair and reduce the environmental stress our skin experiences daily. The series uses Polyphenol (an antioxidant found in Camu-Camu seeds) to neutralise free radical action and address the blemish problems that arise from daily exposure to UV rays. Allantoin in the range’s formula acts a stimulant, promoting cell regeneration and new skin growth to rectify skin roughness.
The Camu-Camu whitening range also includes Vitamin C derivatives that control the production of melanin in the skin. Remember, over-active melanin production is the cause of freckles and pigment-related blemishes.
Three key products make up the DHC Camu-Camu whitening series:
DHC Camu-Camu Whitening Lotion ($50.50) – Camu-Camu and added Vitamin C derivatives penetrate the keratoid layer of the skin, keeping in moisture and controlling melanin production.
DHC Medicated Camu-Camu Whitening Essence (S$50.50) – A concentrated essence for the restoration of pH balance in skin prone to dryness and dullness, it curbs melanin synthesis while promoting fairness.
DHC Medicated Camu-Camu Whitening Cream (S$50.50) – A whitening powder that locks in moisture, it is easily absorbed by the skin’s inner epidermal layers, while limiting melanin production.
This skincare range can be found at flagship DHC stores located at Watsons Bugis Junction, Compass Point, Ion Orchard, Ngee Ann City and Raffles City, where the full range of DHC products is available.
It can also be found at Watsons Causeway Point, Choa Chu Kang Lot 1, Hougang Mall, IMM, Junction 8, Jurong Point, Marina Square, Novena Square, Parkway Parade, Tampines 1, Tampines Mall, Tiong Bahru Plaza, Toa Payoh HDB Hub, Vivocity and Wisma Atria.
