Skin develops colour from a pigment called melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its characteristic colour. In vitiligo, melanocytes, or the cells that produce this pigment, are damaged, and skin loses its colour in the areas where melanin production is dysfunctional. Vitiligo is a condition where irregular, pale or white patches form on the skin. About 1% of people are affected by vitiligo globally.
