What does the research say?
When you search the Internet for "lighten your skin" you may find results of all sorts of products, but what you may not find is a list of the products with evidence of efficacy. That's where the list on this page comes in. Many people want to use products that claim to lighten their skin but can't be bothered to read through the evidence. Here's what we found.
If you're buying a natural skin lightener and are unsure, we strongly recommend buying a product that comes from an authorized source. The reason why this is important is that it may have a better ingredients list than those that are "fake." Also, the name of the product may not necessarily reflect the fact that it's from a "certified natural" company. Check with the company directly to make sure it's legit. Some companies, including Natural Gro, are also "certified organic" or "sourced through a certified organic method." In some cases, it may be the case that the product is made in an illegal factory. If you are unsure if a product is organic or "organic sourced," please consult the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) website to learn more.
