The research proves that there are many melanocyte in the sleep state outside of the hair follicle and inside of the hair root sheath, under certain factors, these melanocyte will activated, that provide a melanocyte reservoir. That can explain those sites have no hair follicle structures such as in the mouth, lips, back of the fingers, in the hand palms and etc. In these parts, the color of vitiligo is hard to restore, because these parts lack of melanocyte reservoir.

Besides the normal melanocyte around the vitiligo sites move to the vitiligo sites is the important factor of the vitiligo regain the melanin and restore the color. The melanocyte move to the epidermal skin of the vitiligo finally situated in the basal layer of the epidermis and formed into melanin unit in the epidermis and maintain the normal skin color.
