ASDM BeverlyHills Arbutin Skin Lightening Complex is effective skin lightening cream made with powerful actives. The strongest natural skin bleaching cream available on the market, this amazing product is formulated to lighten and brighten skin tone while continuously energising and hydrating skin.
Made from exclusive ingredients including Kojic acid, Arbutin, Vitamin C (MAP), Glycolic Acid. This extra strength formula consists of a dynamic combination of ingredients that target excessive melanin production and fight against melanin oxidation. It is infused with a unique combination of nourishing extracts and powerful actives to leave your skin flawless and incredibly soft to the touch.
NB: Skin bleaching/lightening is a process that takes time and once decided results are achieved it requires maintenance to keep the results. Many people use this skin bleaching cream as a daily moisturiser because of its naturally hydrating, wrinkle-fighting and skin firming properties.
Usage: Use once daily at night. You can increase to twice daily, once skin adapts to hydroquinone. Apply a thin layer of product only to the treatment area and rub in well. Please note that arbutin creams/serums lighten indiscriminately, so if you want to lighten certain darker areas only, it is important to keep the product away from normal colored skin. Skin lightening is a gradual process that may require several treatments. Also, keep in mind that the key to a good skin lightening is how well you care for your skin and avoid excessive sun exposure. Use broad spectrum sunscreen spf 30+ when outdoors. Wear a hat and protective clothing if necessary to avoid getting sunburned. This is very important because your skin is slowly peeling and exposing new, lighter skin to the surface.
Shelf Life: This product has a shelf life of 1 year. It is recommended that product be used within 3 months of opening.

More about ingredients:
VITAMIN C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate also known as MAP) MAP will be transformed by the skin enzymes into Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant and a cofactor for an enzyme crucial in the synthesis of collagen (prolyl hydrolase). As an anti-oxidant agent, vitamin C scavenges and destroys reactive oxidizing agents and other free radicals. Because of this ability, it provides important protection against damage induced by UV radiation (and the DNA mutations and cancer that may result from it).
GLYCOLIC ACID is a naturally occurring fruit acid known as AHA (Alpha Hydroxyl Acids). Glycolic peels help to rejuvenate skin by loosening the bond that holds dead skin cells on the epidermis. Helps increase the effectiveness of skin lightening actives by encouraging deeper penetration into skin.
KOJIC ACID is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice. Since the enzyme Tyrosinase contains copper, Kojic Acid is able to effectively chelate (remove) the copper by lowering the PH level around Tyrosinase. Once the copper cofactor is removed, Tyrosinase activity is suppressed and hence so is melanin production.
ARBUTIN provides a skin lightening effect on the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity. Though arbutin is a natural derivative of hydroquinone, it does not possess the same risks or side effects. Arbutin has been shown to be a very safe ingredient and does not break down into hydroquionone very readily.
