What's Lightening Cream and How Does it Work?

They reduce the visible effects of aging and suit anyone who wants brighter, better-looking skin.

How do these creams work?

How does lightening cream work?

Skin lightening products use active ingredients to reduce the level of melanin in our skin - there's no bleaching involved.

Melanin is the pigment in our skin that affects color and tone. The higher the level of melanin, the darker skin will be. So by reducing this pigment, these creams brighten overall complexion and also help to smooth out uneven skin tones.

Some creams contain exfoliant ingredients which induce mild skin peeling. Because skin regenerates quickly, dead cells are cleared away and fresher layers of skin are revealed.

Lightening cream is frequently used by people who want to reduce the appearance of freckles, acne scars, age spots, or discoloration related to hormones.

It is sometimes also used to lighten naturally dark skin, and some people like to use it to make their birthmarks less visible.

In the past, these creams contained mercury - which is poisonous. Don't worry, this is no longer legal in the United States! So you needn't worry about picking it up in the store by mistake.

We only supply products that use natural ingredients, because we believe that these are the best way to keep your skin healthy, vibrant, and to help you look and feel younger.

Are all lightening creams natural now then?

No, not all creams are natural. Some contain hydroquinone, which is a controversial ingredient.

Hydroquinone can cause several side effects, including a mild stinging or burning sensation. This is unpleasant - and some people are allergic to the chemical itself, making it even worse. It has been suggested that hydroquinone has carcinogenic properties - meaning that may lead to the development of cancers.

This chemical can also cause the skin to become dry. This should be avoided at all costs, as it can make skin age prematurely. It can also cause itchiness, flaky skin and loss of skin elasticity, all of which are undesirable results.

Some cosmetics also contain phthalates, a group of chemicals which have been linked to irritation of the eyes and skin, as well as to nausea and headaches.

We strongly believe that it's best to avoid the risk of harm by picking a cream that doesn't contain any potentially detrimental chemicals at all.
