    • about a year/
  • 6. Chemicals effective in skin whitening
    • Pre-melanin synthesis:
    • Tretinoin 0,05-0,1% crm ./retinoic acid/
    • -makes the skin more sensitive to UVA,UVB- avoide sunlight
    • During melanin synthesis:
    • Hydroquinon 2%, 4% crm ./irrit./ popular for last 40 years
    • -EU banned it from cosmetics in 2001
    • Arbutin /safe natural source of hydroquinon in pears,berrys/
    • Kojic acid /fungal metabolit, in fermentation process of sake/
    • Azelaic acid 20% crm ./in grains-wheat,barley, is produced by Pityrosporum ovale/
    • Vitamin C >5%
    • Post-melanin synthesis:
    • Alpha hydroxy acids /AHA/ >5O% facial peels
  • 7. Other Laser treatments - ablative and nonablative /melasma/ Liquid N - excess melanin comes to the surface and peels off in a few days Oral suplements of pomegranate extract, ellagic acid, vit.E, ferulic acid,, soyabean /inhibit melanine production/. Long term use of skin whiteners can lead to pigmentation increasing to the joints of the -fingers -toes -buttocks and ears. The skin of the face can become -thinned -the area around the eyes can have increased pigmentation causing a „bleach panda effect“.
