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.
