The Tyrostat™ line of skin whitening ingredient products is derived from the extract of a plant that is native to the northern Canadian prairie region.

The current line of Tyrostat™ ingredients is based upon extracts of Field Dock (Rumex spp.). This abundant plant is easily recognized by its hallmark deep rust colored seed heads glowing across the fields from early summer through late fall.

Extracts of this plant have strong inhibitory effects on the tyrosinase enzyme. This enzyme is present in both human skin and plant tissue. It is responsible for the formation of the red-brown pigmentation that provides one with the colour of their skin and browning in fruits and vegetables. Tyrosinase inhibition reduces the formation of unwanted pigmentation allowing for control over skin tone.
