With the support of a cosmetic chemist and much more consumer and dermatologist testing, I believe that we have the best natural skin-brightening ingredients out there for this problem with complete ease of use. When researching ingredients to use in these products, I found that using a combination of kojic acid, licorice root extract, niacinamide, and alpha arbutin, were the most safe and effective at minimizing discoloration.
However, I was told it was not a good idea to put all these ingredients in one product. That is why I created a two-step system, the kojic acid body bar, a wash-off formula and the niacinamide brightening deodorant and body balm, a leave-on product. Using these two products together increases the speed of the brightening process and seals in the actives from the body bar. You already use deodorant everyday and you can use the body bar when you’re in the shower, so it won’t add more time in your routine.
