Skin type: Hyperpigmented - Sun Damaged - Acne.
Hyperpigmentation! Age Spots! Acne scars! Oh My!
Natural Skin Brightening Complex with the use of sun protection helps to gradually lighten these problem areas by slowing down the process of pigmentation. As the skin cells shed‚ the areas of discoloration begin to fade.
This extremely effective and highly concentrated all natural skin brightening treatment combines the clarifying‚ antiseptic and skin brightening properties of kojic and azelaic acids.
1) Azelaic Acid is a yeast that lives on normal skin‚ malassezia furfur (also known as Pityrosporum ovale). Azelaic acid has many uses in skin care‚ it is used as a topical treatment for mild to moderate acne and is useful for both comedonal and inflammatory acne. It is antibacterial - reduces the growth of bacteria in the follicle (p acne and staphylococcus epidermis). It is a scavenger of free radicals and helps to reduce pigmentation. It is particularly useful for darker skinned individuals that may have acne dark spots or melasma who may be sensitive to other skin lightening ingredients such as HQ. Azelaic acid is non-toxic and is well tolerated by most individuals. However‚ those with very sensitive skin or who suffer from eczema‚ may find it irritating to apply.
2) Kojic Acid - derived from Japanese mushrooms; kojic acid imparts antioxidant‚ antibacterial‚ and general antimicrobial effects‚ works on the principle of inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that reduces the synthesis of melanin by the skin's melanocytes. Melanin that gives freckles and "age spots" their pigmentation are produced in a multi-step process from the conversion of the amino acid‚ tyrosine‚ into dopa and melanin; so inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme that is a key part of this process stops the formation of irregular pigmentation (which over time lessens the appearance of existing irregular pigment as the skin naturally renews itself over time).
Regular use combined with sun protection gradually lightens dark (brownish) spots such as freckles and age spots or pigment in the skin that may occur in pregnancy or from use of oral contraceptives.

Natural Organic Skin Lightening
Ive been told by a girlfriend how well this works on dark ethnic skin so I just decided to try it. I bought it with the expectation of lightening up stubborn brown acne spots on my caramel ethnic skin because Ive decided to no longer use hydroquinone products on my skin die the reports of this bleaching ingredients link to cancers. Just started using it and just wanted to note a few of its features here. Its a gel. dispensed with a pump. Cool when applied to skin and absorbs fairly quickly (so you can put on foundation immediately). if you have an abrasion it may sting a tiny bit. Has no scent. I expect to see results within 1.5 months with twice daily applications (instructions say once daily). I look forward to giving a positive updated review because usually natural non-hydroquinone products do nothing for ethnic skin hyperpigmentation.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
