The disease is located only on the skin, due to the absence of a cell: the melanocyte, the rest of cells that conform skin do not disappear or alter, only the cell that produces the pigment and since the pigment is the one that stains the skin, there is no color.

Vitiligo occurs when the body is triggered to look at melanocytes, cells which give color to the skin, as foreign or abnormal. With vitiligo, the body's own immune system starts attacking those cells, which is why it's considered an autoimmune disease.

WHETHER unsightly marks or larger vitiligo areas are your concern, concealers are a true beauty hero when it comes to hiding all manner of imperfections. However simple cover or foundation make up you buy at the local pharmacy or big box store isn't going to work, so don't waste your time and money buying these products with the idea that they will. Concealers from illuminating formulas designed to cover a spot or two, like that unwanted zit, won't work either to cover larger problem areas of the skin. Are there heavy-duty concealers manufacturers beyond five big names in vitiligo cosmetics?

Yes, there are. Most products known as concealers are in fact Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) based sunless tanning or self-tanning lotions that contain this FDA approved color additive that, when applied to the skin, imparts a brownish color similar to a sun tan. Commercial preparations typically contain between 3 and 5 percent DHA, a sugar molecule that bronzes the very top layer of the skin. The browning effect occurs within a few hours. The effect is temporary — the color fades in 7-10 days as the skin naturally sloughs off.
