Skin Darkening is nothing but the hyper pigmentation that the skin undergoes because of a multitude of factors such as excessive sun exposure, pollution, hormonal changes, ageing and in some cases, genetic factors. This form of skin darkening can occur in visible patches or on the entire face.
Current treatments for Skin Darkening in the market contain multiple Harmful Ingredients like Parabens, Comedogenic Ingredients like Isopropyl Myristate, Stearic acid and Potential Skin Irritants like Cetyl alcohol, Perfumes, Isopropyl Myristate, Phenoxyethanol. These ingredients in many cases lead to frequent acne breakouts as well as early skin ageing and in some cases have even been found to be carcinogenic.
We believe Skin Darkening should be treated by gently cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing the skin through the use of natural ingredients found in Fuller's Earth/Multani Mitti(Magnesium Chloride), Saffron(Antiseptic Oxide Content), Borax/Suhaga(Antibacterial exfoliants), Bengal Gram/Besan(Potent Scrub), Milk(Fatty Acids), Yogurt(Aphahydroxy acid ),Aloe-Vera(Sorbitol, Sodium Palmate), Jojoba Oil(Vitamin A, E), Turmeric(Antiseptic), Glycerine(Hygroscopic, Humectant). The result will be fairer, more even-toned, healthy and balanced skin with fewer blemishes.
