Every time I see those advertisements for whitening products on TV, I wonder how much Asian women want to lighten their skin. These days, whitening money is so good. As long as the development of a product, do a strong advertising campaign, the huge amount of advertising money spread on whitening advertising, those who love the United States will not withstand the temptation to try these new masters, but you have ever thought about whether you spend a lot of money to buy things really effective? In this article, we will make a detailed introduction to the whitening ingredients commonly used in cosmetics: As we all know, whitening products are special cosmetics, many ingredients are prohibited by the state, and the whitening ingredients used by various merchants are mostly divided into several types, the difference is not very big, there is a difference, it can only be said that the purity, or the way of extraction is different. There are usually three whitening ingredients in cosmetics: vitamin C, plant extracts, and arbutin
Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, that is, Ascorbic acid, is a strong reducing agent, itself has an antioxidant effect, can also be considered an antioxidant, can reduce melanin, because of its safety and mild, so it is widely used by many cosmetics manufacturers. The whitening effect of vitamin C has a great relationship with its own structure and state, usually only L-type vitamin C has a whitening effect, that is, what we call L-C, and vitamin C is extremely unstable, very delicate, not hot, not sunlight, not air contact, so it must be protected, or make derivatives of vitamin C. Let it play its due role, so now there are also some whitening cycle care products are powdered, and they are added immediately when used, so that the protection of vitamin C is the best. That is to say, if the two products contain the same concentration of vitamin C, the effect is not necessarily the same, we will do better than the small business in terms of vitamin activity protection, do a bit.
Plant extract: This is the safest and mildest whitening ingredient, usually used in a variety of combinations, long-term use of the skin without any side effects. It works by inhibiting the activity of tyroaminase. Almost in every whitening product will exist, many plant extracts with whitening effect also have anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory effects, which is more investment and consumers like. Such widely used plant extracts are usually mulberry, cucumber, mulberry bark, angelica, licorice, bark, papaya and so on. Although the plant extract used for whitening has many benefits, at the same time, the speed of whitening effect, we should not be overly expected, the effect will be very slow, but in terms of safety, it is still worth long-term use.
Arbutin: Use arbutin to whiten, Japanese products are used more, this is actually a plant extraction, but its speed of action is faster than the above plant extraction, even faster than vitamin C. As the saying goes, you must lose, this sentence is also very appropriate here, although the action is fast, but it is irritating to the skin, if you use arbutin whitening products, It is still recommended to pause after a period of time, and then replace some milder products to match.
