Applications & Uses

Recommended Uses & Known Application

SabiWhite® offers effective topical antioxidant protection in a holistic way. The in vitro studies revealed that SabiWhite® offers effective topical antioxidant “bioprotectant” action, efficiently helps to prevent the formation of free radicals, while quenching pre-formed ones as well. This dual action protects the skin cells from damage by UV radiation. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 50 human subjects, 0.25% SabiWhite® cream was found to be effective and safe alternative to 4% hydroquinone cream in depigmenting formulation. SabiWhite® is safe for topical use with no irritant or sensitization side effects.
