Luminous630 FAQ

What are dark spots?

Dark spots on the face are the result of an unbalanced melanin production.
Melanin is a natural pigment present in our skin, and is responsible for every person’s natural skin color. However, various factors can over-excite the production of melanin, which accumulate within the skin and become visible on the face as dark spots and uneven skin tone.

How do they appear?

Although there is a genetic disposition to dark spots, there are different reasons why they appear:

  1. The first and most common is sun exposure. When exposed to the sun, the skin naturally produces melanin, which sometimes can be unevenly spread.
  2. As we age, melanin production in our skin also becomes less accurate and can results in the formation of spots.
  3. Hormonal imbalances, for example during pregnancy or menopause, can trigger an overproduction of melanin.
  4. Finally, spots can appear as a mark after skin inflammation, for example acne.

What is LUMINOUS630 and how did you discover this ingredient?

At NIVEA, we are obsessed with skin and we always look at skin biology to understand how to fulfill our consumer’s needs.

When approaching dark spots and uneven tone, we did the same: we know that spots are the result of melanin unbalance. So we looked more closely at the root cause for spots: the enzyme responsible for melanin production.

It took us 10 years of research to find the breakthrough ingredient LUMINOUS630. First, we recreated the human enzyme that produces melanin in our lab, on which we tested more than 50.000 molecules. After multiple optimization rounds, the molecule number 630 was the most successful one in balancing the pigmentation, and therefore reducing spots! 630 was our lucky number, we wanted to keep it in the name. That’s how our breakthrough ingredient LUMINOUS630 was born.

Is LUMINOUS630 safe to use and effective?

Our priority at NIVEA is not only that our innovations are working, but also that they are safe for the skin. LUMINOUS630 is no exception and went through intensive testing procedures after its discovery.

We first tested the ingredient‘s compatibility on cell cultures in our lab, where we could prove, that Luminous630 is mild to skin cells. The efficacy outperformed our expectations.

After very vigurous safety evaluation, we then tested the ingredient on human volunteers. The clinical studies proved the outstanding efficacy on dark spots!

Finally, we conducted a study over our consumers with the LUMINOUS630 ANTISPOT Advanced Treatment Serum and received amazing feedback:
91% "The product helps to provide me a spotless skin“
100% "The product is well tolerated by my skin“
100% "I want to make this product a fix step of my face care routine“
LUMINOUS630 is an anti dark spot ingredient that is both: suitable to be used every day & being highly effective.

What is LUMINOUS630 and how does it work?

LUMINOUS630 is NIVEA‘s latest breakthrough discovery! It is our patented ingredient specifically designed to safely treat and prevent dark spots.

LUMINOUS630 works at cell-level, targeting the root cause of the issue with a dual action:

1. It works on exisiting melanin agglomerates to lighten the spots
2. With continuous usage, it regulates melanin production to prevent the appearance of new ones

We performed clinical studies on the Advanced Treatment Serum, checking the skin after 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 12 weeks and it proved the outstanding efficacy of LUMINOUS630:
1. In 4 weeks spots are visibly lightened
2. In 8 weeks spot intensity is reduced by up to 50%
3. Continuous improvement overtime with regular usage

Really nice on skin
Really nice texture, light and not greasy. Scent is pleasant and refreshing. Absorbed into the skin very easily and did not leave a lot of shine like some other sunscreens. It also seemed to provide the skin with a sort of glow after application. Good size for travel.

Lovely to use. No white cast
I really enjoyed using this, every morning, during the summer months. Happy that it contains an SPF30 that doesn’t leave a white cast, nor does it irritate my eyes. I can't say it has made any difference to my pigmentation, but there aren't any new marks. My dark spots may require a more targeted approach. I'm thinking tranexamic acid?
