Skin pigmentation is linked to the production of melanin by melanocytes. The bleaching of the skin corresponding to inhibition of melanogenesis is sought in medicine in the case of hyperpigmentation but also in cosmetology. The evaluation of the action of compounds or extracts on melanogenesis is based on two tests: a tyrosinase inhibition test (fungal or human tyrosine), and a melanin production inhibition test (on melanocyte models).
