HOW MELALITE FORTE CREAM WORKS

MELALITE FORTE CREAM is used as a de-pigmentation agent on the skin to suppress the activity of cells called melanocytes. Melanocytes are responsible for producing melanin, which leads to the darkening of the skin. MELALITE FORTE CREAM suppresses the overactivity of these cells by blocking the melanin production cycle, thus leads to fading of the brownish spots.
