A lot of people have been disappointed by brightening products. Photoshop marketing is easier and cheaper than formulating a brightening cream that needs expensive and specialized ingredients. The right ingredients need to be included at the correct concentration.
In addition to wrinkles or lines, uneven skin tone – dark spots, sun spots and pigmentation can also make the skin look a little old and less vibrant. This is why skin brightening or lightening products have become popular.
This cream starts as our all natural moisturiser. We then stir through three of the best natural brightening ingredients in their full concentration.
The ingredients we chose work gradually. Most of the studies on the ingredients are done over a 3-4 months period.
Will they be effective for you? Everyone is different. We encourage you to do your own research on the ingredients to see whether this cream is worth trying for you. MooGoo is one of the few companies that show every ingredient on our website, not just the herbal looking ones.
Please Note: While using brightening creams, try and avoid sun exposure. Wear a good hat and if going into direct sun, apply a sunscreen. We have not added sunscreen chemicals to this cream so that it remains natural and healthy for every day use.
Three Powerful Natural Brightening Ingredients Blended Through An All Natural Moisturiser:
Alpha Arbutin is usually derived from the Field Dock Plant. It is purified to increase its effectiveness and arrives to us as a white powder which we can mix through the water in the moisturiser.
What is it?
Originally from the Field Dock plant.
What is it?
This ingredient is derived from Indian Gooseberry which is a plant often used in Ayurvedic Medicine. However, rubbing Indian Gooseberry on the skin won’t do a thing. We use a concentrated standardised extract of Emblica which concentrates the compounds needed. It is also used in some anti-ageing creams (at a lower concentration) as it is an extremely effective anti-oxidant.
What is it?
One of our favourite ingredients. As most people know, Vitamin C is one of the best anti-oxidants. What most people don’t know however is that Vitamin C is normally water soluble and NOT soluble in oil. So when most forms of Vitamin C are applied to the skin, which is protected by our oil layer, it won’t get in. Ascobyl Tetraisopalmitate is a special form of Vitamin C that is soluble in Oil, so it can mix with the oil on our skin and penetrate through.
At lower concentrations, this ingredient works as an anti-ageing anti-oxidant.
