With skin aging comes dark spots also known as age, liver, or sun spots. Continued exposure to ultraviolet rays, UV, cause mutations that lead to excess melanin production and accumulation in some areas and in other areas melanocytes may become lost or damaged. Dermatologists will usually recommend the triad of hydroquinone, retinoids, and corticosteroids. We at Skin Actives like retinoids too, but our Vitamin A Cream is non-irritating. For anti-inflammatory activity we don’t use corticosteroids or hydroquinone. By keeping up with the scientific research, we use skin lightening ingredients that are safe with limited side effects; like soy protease inhibitor, salicin, GSH, carotenoids, baicalein, and more. Check out our line of products to help combat age spots gently and safely.
