PRODUCT INFORMATION & DIRECTIONS TO USE SHEET
Please do not solely rely on information provided in this listing. Please do carry out your own research into skin bleaching/skin whitening ingredients and be fully aware of what you are purchasing.
Skin bleaching is a long commitment, use of an SPF30 or above is required while using skin whitening products.
If you have not used these skin whitening ingredients before please be aware that regular use is necessary to achieve a lighter skin tone.
Skin type variation can alter process and results. Kojic acid alpha arbutin and added licorice need to be used for several months before you see a lighter shade skin.
If you cannot make this long term commitment, please do not make a purchase.
Please note: Skin type variations can alter process and results. Any skin lightening treatments are to be used over a period of time to see the desired results. You must be committed to the regular use. You must wear sunscreen (SPF30 or above) at all times or else the lightening process will be disturbed. Chemical bleaching requires commitment and patience. You will see results provided that you are patient & absolutely committed to the use.
THESE ARE LEAVE ON TREATMENTS AND CAN BE APPLIED IN MULTIPLE LAYERS
(please note: each layer penetrates our skin deeper)
(clinical trials have shown kojic acid to be just as effective as HQ)
Provided in zip sealed bags
To achieve a lighter skin tone you must use these treatments regularly. Skin
type variation can alter process and results. You will see results provided
that you are happy to make a long term commitment, are patient and gentle with
your skin and understand the skin bleaching process completely.
Please only proceed if you understand
that your old skin will peel off to reveal a new complexion, your skin peel
could take a few days to several weeks and skin bleaching agents need to be used for
several months before you see a lighter complexion.
Sunscreen An SPF 30 or
higher needs to be used before exposing your skin to any daylight (this would
be required while you are using any bleaching agents as well as thereafter).
Exfoliation Please use these
treatments every night and leave on skin until the next morning, or as oftena s you like, exfoliation is
extremely important throughout. These bleaching agents would leave you skin
brown, the colour is very difficult to remove and it remains on your skin until
your skin is ready to peel itself off to reveal the new layer of skin underneath.
If you wish to conceal this brown colour
with makeup that would be entirely your choice, however you could use a facial scrub/face
cloth every morning to remove the dead skin cells and rub off the colour (This
could be quite exhausting).
The most effective method would be to use glycolic acid and/or lactic acid
(concentration of no more than 10%) 3-4 times a week, leave on skin until the
next wash, this practice will dissolve the very top layer of skin and the skin
will gently peel off/exfoliate during a regular wash, these concentrations also
provide oil control, acne control and minimise the appearance of large pores.
an AHA use is not necessary with skin bleaching treatments however it does speed
up the skin peeling and lightening process. (Waiting for the brown colour to disappear
with the old skin can be very frustrating).
agent, anti-oxidant & inhibits the formation of pigment.
Kojic Acid is a chelation agent produced by several species of fungi, especially Aspergillus oryzae, which has the Japanese common name koji. Kojic acid is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice, for use in the manufacturing of sake, the Japanese rice wine. It is an inhibitor of the formation of pigment.
kojic acid functions primarily as a skin-lightening agent. To understand kojic acid's effects, it is necessary to understand how the skin gets it color.
The body naturally produces a pigment known as melanin through specialized cells known as melanocytes. A person's genes determine how much melanin the body naturally produces. In people with fair skin, only small amounts of melanin are manufactured by the melanocytes, while copious amounts of the pigment are made by the cells of those with dark complexions.
The production of melanin in the skin does not occur in fixed amounts. Often, the cells produce more melanin in response to the environment or internal conditions in the body.
When the skin is exposed to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, the melanocytes increase their production activities, causing the skin to tan. Repeated exposure to the sun can result in a permanent increase in melanin production in spots on the skin, causing small freckles and larger sun or age spots to form.
Melanin production can also increase when the skin becomes chronically inflamed. This is a common problem among acne sufferers who have prolonged discoloration of their skin after their acne blemishes heal. Hormonal changes that occur in the body during pregnancy can also spur melanin production, leading to a discoloration on the face that is known as melasma or chloasma.
The overproduction of melanin caused by inflammation and hormonal activity typically declines over time, resulting in a gradual fading of the darkened skin.
Prior to the discovery of kojic acid, the ingredient HQ was largely the only ingredient used for skin whitening. HQ is known to cause skin irritation in many individuals, and for these people, dermatologists often recommend kojic acid as an alternative method for treating skin discoloration. Those with very sensitive skin may still develop redness or itching from the use of kojic acid, but overall, the ingredient is better tolerated than HQ. The effects of kojic acid have been reported as being identical to those of HQ or slightly less noticeable.
In addition to its skin-lightening abilities, kojic acid is classified as an antioxidant. This class of nutrients has the ability to counteract the effects of particles in the air called free radicals, which have the potential to cause oxidative damage to the skin cells. By limiting the effects of free radicals, kojic acid helps to prevent the formation of signs of aging that occur when the cells that produce the skin's vital structural proteins become damaged.
Some dermatologists recommend the use of mild concentrations of kojic acid for addressing acne blemishes.
Kojic acid is also an antibacterial agent, meaning that it interferes with the processes that bacteria cells must perform to thrive and reproduce. By disrupting these processes, kojic acid causes the death of bacteria. Some dermatologists recommend the use of mild concentrations of kojic acid for addressing acne blemishes, which are often caused by bacterial infections in the pores.
When used in skin care products, kojic acid is a largely unstable compound and has the potential to turn brown if it is not stabilized by additional ingredients. As a result, some skin care companies use a more stable derivative of kojic acid known as kojic dipalmitate in place of the ingredient.
Consumers should be aware that studies have not found kojic dipalmitate to be as effective in lightening the skin as kojic acid, so products that contain this version may not be as beneficial for treating hyperpigmentation.
