When creating a product the base ingredients are just as important as the active ones. It is important to choose proper carriers and liposomes to ensure that the active ingredients are absorbed deeply into the skin. It is also wise to include effective preservatives and moisturizers to ensure minimal skin irritation. SafriDerm Skin Brightener Cream contains the highest concentrations of active ingredients tolerated by the skin. The use of special base ingredients and high quality actives is what brings out the true effectiveness of the formula and sets us apart from other manufacturers.
Your skin colour comes from natural pigment called melanin. Melanin pigment is synthesized in specialized cytoplasmic organelles called melanosomes. Within the melanosome the enzymatic conversion of the amino acid tyrosine to melanin is catalyzed by the enzyme tyrosinase. The melanosomes in darker portions of the skin are more active than those found in normal areas of the body. The ingredients found in our formula counter this process in multiple ways by dealing with not only the melanosomes, but also the enzyme tyrosinase. With the help of exfoliation agents, the initial lightening effects of the complexion can be often being seen within 2 weeks.
In order to naturally fade the appearance of dark skin spots and obtain an even complexion, you must dedicate time and patience to the process. Results will vary based on your particular skin condition and the amount of sun exposure received. Though initial improvement is often seen in just 2 weeks, full results generally appear after 1-2 months of regular use.

ALPHA-ARBUTIN is a pure, water soluble, biosynthetic active ingredient. ALPHA-ARBUTIN promotes lightening and an even skin tone on all skin types. ALPHA-ARBUTIN blocks epidermal melanin biosynthesis by inhibiting enzymatic oxidation of tyrosine and Dopa. Structurally, ALPHA-ARBUTIN (IUPAC name 4-hydroxyphenyl-α-D-glucopyranoside) is a α-glucoside, The α-glucosidic bond offers higher stability and efficacy than the β-form in the related beta-arbotin. This leads to a skin lightening active that acts faster and more efficiently than existing single components, minimizes liver spots and reduces the degree of skin tanning after UV exposure.
Skin lightening products have become more popular around the world. With the increased number of lightening, whitening and brightening products, questions have arisen as to the safety of some skin bleaching ingredients.
The interest in lightening products remains strong, which means that there is a need for other ingredients that achieve good lightening results.

Ascorbic acid has several documented physiological and pharmacological effects on the skin. Ascorbic acid acts as an inhibitor of melanin formation and also plays a role in collagen formation. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is and pharmacological activities. MAP has been widely used in various cosmetics because of its advantageous properties such as inhibitory effects on melanogenesis, promotion of collagen synthesis, and prevention of lipid peroxidation.
A fungal metabolic product, kojic acid inhibits the catecholase activity of tyrosinase, which is the rate-limiting, essential enzyme in the biosynthesis of the skin pigment melanin. Melanocytes treated with kojic acid become nondendritic, with decreased melanin content. Additionally, it scavenges reactive oxygen species releases excessively form cells or generated in tissue or blood. Kojic acid is now used extensively as a natural alternative to hydroquinone.

It has been widely used for decades in cosmetics, with no reported adverse effects.
