Cosmelan: Cosmelan® depigmentation treatment action mechanism is based on the inhibition of tyrosinase, a basic enzyme in the melanin formation process. Several of the substances present in the cosmelan® formula act by blocking this enzyme, or even by inverting the metabolic process of the transformation chain.
