Skin develops colour from a pigment called melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its characteristic colour. In vitiligo, melanocytes, or the cells that produce this pigment, are damaged, and skin loses its colour in the areas where melanin production is dysfunctional. Vitiligo is a condition where irregular, pale or white patches form on the skin. About 1% of people are affected by vitiligo globally.

There are treatments available at UrbanRx Compounding Pharmacy that can slow down or improve this condition. Call us to find out more!

Piperine Phytocomplex Cream - A Safe And Effective Treatment For Skin Hypopigmentation Disorders

Piperine phytocomplex is naturally derived from black pepper (Piper nigrum L.) fruit extract in oleoresin, with high concentration of alkaloids and volatile oils.

Piperine phytocomplex promotes melanogenesis and the proliferation of melanocytes leading to skin repigmentation. It is indicated for treating different forms of hypomelanosis such as vitiligo, idopathic guttate leukoderma, piebaldism, hypomelanosis of Ito and other disorders in which there is reduction of melanocytes.

Piperine phytocomplex cream can be used in children and can be applied on sensitive skin and difficult to treat areas such as around the eyes, mouth and genitals.

Benefits of piperine phytocomplex cream
  • Stimulates melanocytes replication located deeply in the skin and it induces the formation of dendrites, hence promoting skin repigmentation
  • The liposomal formulation of gel base allows piperine phytocomplex to be deeply absorbed reaching the melanocytes for a more effective repigmentation process
  • Protects cellular DNA and does not trigger the development of melanoma
  • Safe and effective with or without UV treatment
  • Great step forward to current treatment with psoralens and khellin in vitiligo
