For speed in brightning results, use the takesumi bright system.

The longer the pigmentation has been present, the longer it will take to see significant improvement. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a result of irritation. Brightening treatments will be unsuccessful until underlying cause of inflammation has been addressed.

Step 1: First, the kojic acid brightening bar minimizes the appearance of dark spot pigmentation with kojic acid and licorice root extract, while also eliminating odor-causing bacteria in the underarms.

Step 2: Next, the niacinamide brightening deodorant combines niacinamide and alpha arbutin to brighten underarms while a potent fermentation extract and activated charcoal helps control odor.

Step 3: Finally, the sweat powder absorbs excess moisture and creates a barrier on the skin to prevent chafing and friction that can contribute to hyperpigmentation and underarm rashes.

For faster brightening results use the takesumi bright system:

STEP 1: the kojic acid brightening bar Moisten the bar and apply the lather to affected areas with a soft and gentle cloth or silicone exfoliating brush (fingers can be used if exfoliating has occurred more than twice a week). Massage for 30 seconds to allow the actives to penetrate the area before rinsing off.

STEP 2: niacinamide deodorant Follow with a generous application of deodorant to clean, dry underarms daily.

STEP 3: the sweat powder For extra protection against excess perspiration, and to prevent chafing and irritation that can lead to hyperpigmentation, apply a generous layer of the sweat powder over top of your deodorant.

The niacinamide deodorant can also be used on the body following the kojic acid brightening bar on areas with dark spot pigmentation, areas that experience chafing and friction and to soothe and calm inflammation and irritation. Can be used on:
  • back and chest blemish marks
  • inner thighs and bikini line
  • elbows and knees
  • bug bites

Once dark spots are minimized, continue to use the deodorant on underarms for lasting results.

Do not use after shaving or waxing. Always shave at night and allow the skin to calm down before applying the deodorant.

Some may notice slight redness or discomfort after using the deodorant for the first time. In order to ensure you can use the formula, test the deodorant on your forearm for twenty-four hours before applying it on your underarms and body. Look out for any unusual reactions.

FAQ's

The longer the pigmentation has been present, the longer it will take to see significant improvement. Customers have reported seeing initial results within the first couple weeks, with more significant results within 4-6 weeks. 

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a result of irritation. Brightening treatments will be unsuccessful until underlying cause of inflammation has been addressed.  

We recommend implementing the following tips: 

  • Use in conjunction with the kojic acid brightening bar for faster underarm brightening results 
  • Shaving is the #1 cause due to irritation. Use a shave oil, shave at night and don’t apply anything to the area for 12-24 hours following shaving. 
  • Avoid irritating underarm products that contain ingredients such as baking soda, aluminum or high levels of fragrance 
  • Reduce chafing and friction in affected area, including chafing from tight, non-breathable clothing materials 

This deodorant uses a combination of niacinamide and alpha arbutin to brighten underarm skin that has been darkened due to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The deodorant works to soothe inflammation, while gently brightening the skin to return it to its original color. It will not bleach skin.

Absolutely! It was formulated with sensitive skin in mind and contains no irritating baking soda, made with very low levels of fragrance and contains nourishing and soothing ingredients such as niacinamide and aloe vera. 

If your main concern is to treat dark underarms, then you should use the 2-step takesumi bright system for dark underarms. It will manage odor and dark underarms at the same time. 

If you are not concerned about dark underarms, then use the 2-step takesumi detox system for excess odor. 

For faster brightening results usethe takesumi bright system: 
 
STEP 1: the kojic acid brightening bar Moisten the bar andapply the lather to affected areas with a soft and gentle cloth or siliconeexfoliating brush (fingers can be used if exfoliating has occurred more thantwice a week). Massage for 30 seconds to allow the actives to penetrate the area before rinsing off. 
 
STEP 2: niacinamide deodorant Follow with a generous application of deodorant to clean, dry underarms daily. 
 
STEP 3: the sweat powder For extra protection against excess perspiration, and to prevent chafing and irritation that can lead to hyperpigmentation, apply a generous layer of the sweat powder over top of your deodorant. 
 
The niacinamide deodorant can also be used following the kojic acid brightening bar on areas with dark spot pigmentation and experience chafing and friction such as the inner thighs. 

Once dark spots are minimized, continue to use the deodorant on underarms for lasting results. 

Do not use after shaving or waxing. Always shave at night and allow the skin to calm down before applying the deodorant.

Some may notice slight redness or discomfort after using the deodorant for the first time. In order to ensure you can use the formula, test the deodorant on your forearm for twenty-four hours before applying it on your underarms and body. Look out for any unusual reactions.

No, the niacinamide brightening deodorant is not an antiperspirant. It is an aluminum-free natural deodorant and thus doesn’t stop you from sweating. It contains a potent fermentation extract and activated charcoal to neutralize odor and manage odor-causing bacteria.

THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS FOR ME!!

IF I CAN GIVE THIS 10 STARS I WOULD!!!! I have hyperpigmentation on my under arms so I got the 2 step brightening kit which comes with a soap and the deodorant. I am one month in and I do see a difference, I plan on using this for the rest of my life so i am sure after a couple of months the darkness will be gone. I also have the black soap which helps for smell. My routine is I use the black soap first for 3 seconds under each arm, then I use the white kojic soap for 30 seconds. Once I step out of shower I will use a clean towel to dry my under arms and apply the brightening deodorant. I WONT STINK AT ALL!!!! I am so surprised at the end of the day. TMI but I wipe my underarms with my hand and smell my hand and THERE IS NO SMELL!!!!!! ITS SHOCKING!!!! I love the inventor of this product and i really hope the product is around for the rest of my life. I NEED THIS IN STORES!!!!!

Amazing!

I was skeptical at first, I have literally tried everything for my dark spots under my arms and in between my thighs. I figured I would try this, I didn’t have anything to lose.
I’m so happy I ordered the takesumi bright 2 step system! My underarms are so much lighter and my thighs are taking a bit longer but I can definitely see a difference!

Produits fait par des gens qui ont du goût

J’ai beaucoup apprécié l’odeur de velvet vanilla and pear de mon brightening starter kit. J’aurais aimé que la poudre sorte en plus grande quantité lorsque je l’utilise. Je vois une petite différence depuis le début mais je continue le processus. Merci pour vos produits si bien pensés.

Love this product!

My underarms became pigmented after an allergic reaction to a new deodorant and I thought I'd have to live with dark patches forever until I discovered these products, in just a few weeks I've noticed a huge difference and am very pleased with the results!
