If you can take 1 item to a deserted island… What would it be?

I remember years ago I read an article where the journalist asked Margaret Gardiner what she would take if she only had one item to take with her to a deserted island.

“Sunglasses, off course!” she replied.

I found this entertaining and at the same time very intriguing. It is her first concern, and so it is with most of us.

We are entering Summer and most of us are stocking up on Sunscreen and Sun protection, but do we really understand the process of melanin formation and how this should be done?

Rule one off course is always not to expose your skin to prolonged sun, but once you have the damage it is very difficult to get rid of.

New technology has shown us that the days of bleaching our skins to get rid of age spots are gone.

The days of increased peels are also gone, we have now moved on to de-activating the glands that produce melanin.

Did you know that the gland that produces the melanin is also responsible for producing vernix (the white substance new born babies are covered in).

After this it is pretty much only to blame for producing melanin.

But what is Melanin?

Lets see what Wikipedia said:

The melanin in the skin is produced by melanocytes, which are found in the basal layer of the epidermis. Although, in general, human beings possess a similar concentration of melanocytes in their skin, the melanocytes in some individuals and ethnic groups produce variable amounts of melanin. Some humans have very little or no melanin synthesis in their bodies, a condition known as albinism.

So if we could control this gland producing the melanin, it would mean a more even skin and definitely less spots.


This is exactly what Elim did. We produced a range of Hand Products all focusing on reducing melanin production.

Our active ingredients are there to de-activate the gland that produces your age spot.

Sounds familiar? I guess it does. It is more or less what we do when we inject Botox. We are also de-activating the ability of the muscle that causes wrinkles.


Remember to successfully get rid of age spots you have to follow a strict routine of cleansing, exfoliation and hydration with your active Serum.

We recommend the Hydro Thermal Peel, Age Reversal Hand Cream with Anti-Pigmentation Actives and the Dark Spot Serum, a concentration of Actives to boost the process.

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. Buddha
