The Most Effective Skin Whitening Cream

Are you on the never ending search for a safe and effective skin whitening lotion? A skin whitening cream that contains extracts the cyperus rotundus root is a great place to start. Several creams that are available contain irritating and even dangerous ingredients.

It's believed that some skin whitening lotion contains substances such as acids, mercury, and exfoliants that bleach, peel and scrub the outer epidermis . Mercury is dangerous heavy metal and it's use in skincare products is problematic if not irresponsible.  The major cosmetic companies state that it is not harmful since it does not go inside the skin.  Either way, I'm not going to use anything with mercury in it... better safe than sorry.

Bleaches, peels and exfoliants are tend to be a bit caustic,  however, the discoloration that they cause can become a recurring event. It's been determined that repeated inflammation of this type can contribute to the development of rosacea and even DNA degeneration. DNA degeneration is thought to contribute to the development of wrinkles or cancer.

Just like choosing healthy food, go for the natural products - as always stay away from products that have ingredients that you cannot pronounce the names of or have 'new' compounds in them that are largely untested.
