Skin Care
Excellent to use in anti ageing hand creams.
Age spots on the hands are very ageing but are also difficult to get rid of.
Skin Lightener acts slowly which means you don’t get a give away bleaching effect. It can take up to 12 weeks to see the best results.
The colour intensity of the age spots is significantly reduced over a period of time. It evens out the skin tone so use in acne damaged skin products.

Hair Care
No specific hair use.
Use at 3% to 5%.
It is soluble in water so cannot be used in oil only products.
It is heat stable only up to 60°C. Add to Stage 3 (cool down stage) of creams and lotions.
Ideal to use in gels and serums.


We feel it is best as the sole lightening ingredient in the product you use it in.
However, regular exfoliation of the skin will help to remove dead skin cells which will enhance to overall effect.
