In response this, the cosmetics industry has made "skin whitening creams" available in the market. However, when you are looking for one, be sure to look past all the advertising attributed to big brand names and choose a product of proper quality that is void of artificial ingredients. Always read the label; ensure that it does not contain synthetic ingredients, but is full of natural components.
Two such artificial ingredients found in skin whitening creams are benzene and mercury. These should be avoided as they can give rise to cancer as well as kidney failure; while your skin may also develop severe (and irreparable) damage.
As astonishing as it may seem, there are many skin care products packed with ingredients which, in reality, cause damage to your skin over time. Mineral oil, for example, has been found in literally hundreds of products examined. Going by the alternative names of liquid paraffin, paraffin wax and petrolatum, it clogs up pores and does not allow the skin to "breathe".
One skin whitening cream recommended by professionals worldwide is Meladerm (Civant Skin Care) whose manufacturers make it very clear that that list of possible artificial ingredients also includes hydroquinone, steroid properties and other harmful bleaching substances. Rather than containing any such substances, Meladerm is an all-natural product, whose active ingredients include niacinamide (vitamin B3), berry extracts, licquorice extract, and lemon juice extract; as well as emblica powder, kojic acid and lactic acid. Meladerm is regarded as the industry gold standard. And, available online at $49.99 with a 30-day money back guarantee, its website lists it as good for combating signs of aging, liver spots and sun spots, while also working against freckles, melasma and chloasma; acne marks and old scars may also fade, together with discolorations and birthmarks. It may be applied to dark elbows, knees, knuckles and underarms, or used to treat other hyperpigmentation or bring about a general condition of brighter skin.
Extrapone Nutgrass is another example of a product that does not use artificial ingredients. Able to reduce melanin in your skin by up to 40%, it is completely safe to use.
Skin whitening creams are known to play a role in maintaining beauty and retaining a radiant appearance, but you should not depend on these creams alone to get the results you want. Rather, extra care is necessary to ensure a healthy appearance; ask about certain natural products like functional keratin, phytessence wakame, coenzyme Q10, natural vitamins E and C, manuka honey and avocado extract, and jojoba oil. These products work by eliminating wrinkles, fine lines and aiding the development of collagen as well as elastin, chemicals which keep the skin firm and youthful-looking. Vitamins E and C, and even coenzyme Q10 also work as antioxidants.
