What Is The Best Skin Whitening Cream? Here’s The Top 5

Skin whitening creams can be your solution if you are interested in whitening your skin tone, fade skin blemishes and remove dark patches in your face and/or body. It can be used to whiten dark butt, inner thighs, bikini area, underarms, dark spots, acne scars and other skin blemishes. There are a lot of skin whitening creams in the market right now but the question is, what exactly do you need to look for when buying a skin whitening cream and what is the best skin whitening cream out there?

You’ve probably been to the super market or maybe Amazon and eBay and found all these skin whitening creams sold both online and offline. But now, you’re wondering: which one should I buy? Which skin whitening cream is the best? Which one is the most effective? Well, you came to the right place. In this post, you will learn what skin whitening ingredients are effective and which ones are proven to be effective.

First, the most important thing to look for when buying a skin whitening cream is the ingredients. Here’s the list of top three skin whitening ingredients that are proven to work effectively:

  1. Alpha Arbutin – this one is the most effective and safest skin whitening ingredient you’ll ever use. One thing I like about Alpha Arbutin is that when you use it, it gives you this “natural lighter-looking skin” and not that “fake looking white skin.” It also gives that bright and supple-looking skin. Keep in mind that there are two kinds of Arbutin: Alpha Arbutin and Beta Arbutin. Make sure that you look for Alpha Arbutin and not Beta. This is because Beta Arbutin is not as effective as Alpha.

  2. Niacinamide – extremely effective and it works! Niacinamide is know to effectively to whiten dark butt, inner thighs, bikini area, underarms and other intimate areas. Aside from its skin whitening effect, Niacinamide also prevents acne or pimples and dries up existing ones.

  3. Kojic acid – a very popular skin whitening ingredient that’s proven to be effective. Kojic acid comes in all forms: soaps, creams, serums and lotions. Even though kojic acid is very effective in skin whitening, you have to know that it oxidizes quickly. Oxidizing basically means that it loses its effectiveness. Oxidizing normally occurs in creams, lotions and serums and this normally happens a few weeks after the product is manufactured. Once the products oxidizes, it will turn brownish and it’s no longer effective. Also note that there are two kinds of kojic acid: kojic acid and kojic acid dipalmitate. Kojic acid dipalmitate is not as effective as kojic acid but it’s a lot more stable. I prefer to use kojic acid in soap form because the kojic acid in soap doesn’t oxidize like the ones in creams and lotions.

The reason why I only picked those three ingredients above is because those are the whitening ingredients that are proven to be effective for all skin types and ethnicities. Also, skin whitening creams are also known as “lightening creams” or “bleaching creams.” I noticed that some sellers would actually used these terms to describe their whitening cream. All of these terms are the same.

Here are my top picks for a skin whitening cream:

    i want to make a creamy Barth wash that lightens the skin and i have decided to use the following components: water, sodium laureth sulphate, texapon, cocamide dea, cocamidoprpyl betaine, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol, glycerine,sodium chloride, benzophenone, dmdm hydantoin, metyl paraben, disodium EDTA, citric acid, vitamin E , alpha arbutin, kojic acid, BHT, A.H.A , soybean oil, FRAGRANCE and sodium metabisulphite. my challenge is how to combine these chemicals and at what temperature and phase should i apply them especially the alpha arbutin, kojic acid,BHT, A.H.A, vitamin E tocopheryl,sodium metabisulphite.

      I can’t give you an advice on this as I am not a chemist ora DIY-skincare person. However, I know that certain actives like kojic acid must be in a specific temperature before you can add it to your base. You can’t just add it in a powder form and assume that it will work. Chemistry doesn’t work like that. Try Googling the answer though.

      There’s really not way to tell which one is better for black skin. You just need to try different brands to see which one works for your skin type.

      I’ve never tried a product that lightens the lips but I’m sure that there are products out there that can help you out. Maybe you stay under the sun too much or bites your lips a lot. If so, then you might avoid these and see what happens. When I was young, someone told me that lip balms/gloss/lipsticks cause lip darkening. Not sure if this is true though.

    Which is the best, most effective and faster in whitening, face creams with alpha arbutin, with kojic acid or with glutathione content?

    • beautyregimen
      July 28, 2015 at 3:00 am

      Kojic acid is way superior that the other two but here’s the problem: kojic oxidizes very quickly. This means that once it’s manufactured, it has to be used right away (unless it’s sealed using an airtight container) and it can’t be in a hot weather. On the other hand, AA and Gluta are effective but it might take sometime before you see results. Note: never buy a cream that has kojic in it that look brownish or caramel. This means that the cream has oxidized and not potent anymore.
