The Active Ingredients Of Skin Lightening Creams

Active Ingredients Of Skin Lightening CreamsThis post explains what active ingredients they use in skin lightening creams and lotions, although not all products on the market are covered.

There are realistically only a few chemicals which are known to be both safe and effective for legitimate skin bleaching, and I will go into these chemicals first, so you can get an idea of what works the best for your skin.

Arbutin is the number one best active ingredient that you will find in a skin whitening cream, as it is a natural chemical, that is similar to hydroquinone, or it actually contains small amounts of hydroquinone among other things.

It has no real side effects, unless used for months at a time, and it is very effective in bleaching the skin gradually to a white color.

Glycolic acid is a similar one of these active ingredients which are safe to use for making your skin whiter.

You can also find hydroquinone in prescription creams, but you do need to see a doctor to get the strongest products, and it is not recommended that you use creams containing that chemical for more than a few weeks at a time.

It can cause some side effects such as thinning of the skin, rashes, and blisters if used for too long.
