FAQs about SPECIAL CARE
Liver spots and hyperpigmentation occur more frequently on darker skin types. They are the result of increased melanin production for healing inflammations or skin trauma. Skin trauma can be the result of sun damage, UV radiation, hormonal changes, the consequences of acne, and even wearing a mask can lead to long-term damage for darker skin types.
In our ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM, we use a natural, highly active ingredient called BRIGHT Oléoactif®. It contains extracts from the marsh mallow and licorice root. Marsh mallow is a member of the Malvaceae family. Alongside the root, the leaves and seeds were used for healing in Antiquity. Licorice is a plant in the bean family Fabaceae. Licorice, the candy, contains licorice flavor extracted from the licorice root. In Chinese teachings about juice, licorice root is categorized as a general, harmonizing herbal medicine (sweet taste and balancing effect on the body temperature). These properties are used to counteract skin trauma and inhibit melanin production.
In the pigmentation process, UV radiation, for example, stimulates the skin cells to trigger its melanocytes* to produce melanin. The melanin pigment in the melanocytes* colors the skin cells. This is where BRIGHT Oleoactif® comes in – right in the skin cells. The transmitter that is responsible for coloring the skin is inhibited.
*The melanocytes are located between the basal cells of the skin in the bottom layer of the epidermis. This cell type forms melanin, a skin pigment, which is responsible for the skin’s individual color.
No, the ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM contains neither brightening agents nor optical interference pigments. The complexion is improved by inhibiting melanin synthesis with natural extracts.
ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM was designed for the sensitive skin of the face and eye contour area. The serum can also be used on the neck and décolleté, as well as the back of the hand. To fortify the skin's natural barrier, for best results use a supplementary day or night care product as well.
How long should the ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM be used and are there any additional recommendations?
Clinical studies have documented that after 28 days of use, faces have a visibly more even complexion. After 56 days of use, the results greatly improve again. It is particularly important to fortify the skin's natural barrier with moisture and care. The ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM also contains MultiMoist CLTTM for an extra portion of moisture and jojoba oil for additional care. Our recommendation: After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM to your face. If necessary, use day cream and night cream. For improved results, also apply DADO SENS SUN CARE during the day.
ANTI-HYPERPIGMENTATION SERUM is suitable for all skin types.
Yes, because ECTOIN ANTI-AGING-FLUID has been specifically developed for people with very sensitive skin and skin prone to allergies. It’s completely free of fragrances, colorings and preservatives, so is also tolerated by people who are allergic to fragrances. And all its other ingredients have been selected with a view to particularly good skin-compatibility, as well. Extensive dermatological studies with allergy sufferers verify this. However, as someone who suffers from allergies, you should nevertheless be careful whenever you use new products since there are no 100 % guarantees. This is why we recommend that you test a product in the crook of your arm first, and then wait for 24 hours to see whether your skin reacts to it.
It is sensitive and dry skin in particular that runs the risk of aging prematurely. This is because the skin lacks moisture and therefore many of its normal bioactivities are no longer able to function optimally. This reduces the skin’s vitality and its resistance to negative environmental influences and frequently results in premature wrinkle formation. So it does, in fact, make sense to start with anti-aging care at the age of 28. We recommend the light ECTOIN ANTI-AGING-FLUID.
Yes, there are. Ectoin is the key ingredient. For millions of years, ectoin has been ensuring that microorganisms can survive even under the most extreme environmental stress, such as in the desert, in salt lakes or in perpetual ice. This is because ectoin boosts the vitality of the cell functions. This ingredient has now been discovered for cosmetics. In addition to ectoin, ingredients such as ceramides and isoflavones from red clover help to strengthen and firm the skin, while moisture is lastingly bound. The result is a distinct reduction in wrinkle depth and a fresh, radiant complexion.
Should ECTOIN ANTI-AGING FLUID be used to complement other products or can I use it as a day-care product on its own?
Depending on the condition of the skin, ECTOIN ANTI-AGING FLUID can be used either as supplementary care or as day care. If your skin tends to be dry, Ectoin is an ideal complement to REGENERATIONE or EXTRODERM. It also combines well with PROBALANCE because it’s suitable for people who suffer from allergies. For skin that tends to be oily, ECTOIN ANTI-AGING FLUID can be used as a day-care product on its own.

Despite the high degree of purity of our tea tree oil, allergy sufferers should test the product in the crook of their arm first, and then wait for 24 hours to see if their skin reacts.
