- Hydroquinone – Hydroquinone is the leading ingredient for lightening the skin. It can reduce the formation and improve the look of dark spots by interfering with the melanin formation. Hydroquinone can irritate some individual’s skin, especially those with sensitive skin in general. It is important to slowly introduce it to your skin regimine and consult your doctor if any adverse responses occur.
- Arbutin – Arbutin is an extract from the bearberry plant that inhibits enzymes involved in melanin production. It therefore helps lighten the skin, and be less irritating than hydroquinone.
- Kojic acid – Kojic acid has skin-lightening and other beneficial effects on the skin. It has antimicrobial properties which is great for those with acne-prone skin. It can make the skin more sensitive to the sun, however, so wearing sunscreen is important while using this product.
- Emblica – This natural plant is known for its astringent, cooling, and drying properties. It is highly effective when used to brighten and lighten the skin, as well as for its antioxidant properties.
