UNSPOILT . UNCOMPROMISED . ALL-NATURAL
Originating from the wild tropical rainforests of Malaysia, ficus deltoidea is better known to traditional Malay herbalists as Mas Cotek. For many generations, village households have brewed the herb into tea as a postpartum treatment. It is also used to improve circulation and reduce blood pressure, and the leaves of male and female plants can be mixed for use as an aphrodisiac.
Thanks to the advances of modern bioscience, F. deltoidea has made the long journey from the rainforest to the laboratories of the Institute of Bioproduct Development. With skin whitening effects that have been tested and borne out by painstaking research, F. deltoidea has been chosen as the main active ingredient in WISDERM Whitening Serum.
Mistletoe fig – demystified!
To find the scientific properties behind the folklore of F. deltoidea, the expert researchers at Institute of Bioproduct Development (IBD), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, have collaborated with Korea’s Dongguk University. After diligent and through investigation, they found that F. deltoidea has two distinct effects that counter tyrosinase, the enzyme that causes melanogenesis:
- F. deltoidea extract inhibits tyrosinase enzyme activity.
- F. deltoidea extract suppresses tyrosinase production.
These discoveries come in addition to existing studies showing the health benefits of F. deltoidea:
- F. dletoidea possesses five active components – flavanoid, tannins, triterpenoids, proanthocyanins and phenols – that improve human memory.
- F. deltoidea assists the effectiveness of vitamin C in controlling some free radicals as well as blood circulation.

Behind the blemishes
Your skin cells are remarkably resilient and adaptive, protecting you from dehydration, infection, and environmental factors such as sunlight and rain. However, this protection takes its toll. In particular, one of the effects of prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light is the formation of unsightly skin blemishes.
Dark blemishes form as a result of melanogenesis. In this process, the melanocytes in your skin generate the skin pigment melanin, which is transferred to neighbouring keratinocytes, turning the skin dark. Because too much UV light can increase melanogenesis, these dark blotches are common in tropical regions that receive unceasing amounts of sunlight throughout the year.
