Lightening / Whitening Agents

Exposure to sun, wounds, rashes etc. can cause skin darkening or leave dark spots. Skin lightening / whitening agents function by hindering melanin production, making the skin look whiter and lighter in complexion. Skin lightening agents can be plant based, marine based or synthetic.
