The story

The Madonna lily, a symbol of purity with a universal fragrance

Lilium candidum, Liliaceae

Born in Asia Minor, it is an evergreen plant, with many flowers, that, like other lilies, is very popular in European gardens. Cultivated since Ancient times in Egypt and in Rome, for its exceptional fragrance – a sweet smell stronger in the evening, it has become a main component in many contemporary perfumes. And it has been used also for its many healing properties in all the Mediteranean area. As a plant symbol of purity because of its color, its flowers have been selected since the Ancient Egypt to Renaissance to go with the representations of power, and also in still lives.



Because of ageing or having been too much exposed to UV, skin tone can become « un-uniform », it is necessary to regulate skin pigmentation at the beginning of its process. To get a skin more radiant, lighter, that looks younger.

How it works ?

Bright Light Lys Madonna lily: decreasing melanin in the upper layers of epidermis



Melanocytes, cells from the basal layer, synthetize melanin, that absorbs UV rays. They transfer it to keratinocytes through melanosomes, organites, that fill up with melanin while developing. The synthesis of melanin like the transfer of melanosomes to keratinocytes are complex phenomenae, dependent on the action of many molecules, hormons and cytokines. Bright Light Madonna lily interferes with the transfer of melanin from melanocytes to keratinocytes by limiting the action of the PAR-2 (protease-activated receptor-2) activated by a protease enzyme, that makes absorption of melanosomes by keratinocytes easier. Therefore the quantity of melanin decreases in keratinocytes. In the same time, it boosts cell renewal to get a better cell balance and to force out faster melanin in the epidermis.

Thanks to those related actions, melanocytes and keratinocytes play again their original part: protecting skin.
