Glutathione is an effective antioxidant. The main effect in using it for skin whitening is most likely a side effect of making the skin lighter as it protects the cells from free radicals responsible for skin pigmentation and blemishes.Would a good sun block do the same thing?

Bare Skin Care has this in our Anti-Aging Serum, but more for it's antioxidant benefits than for skin lightening.

I ran this by our R&D expert and he found
there is no scientific evidence to support glutathione as a skin lightening agent.

Some dermatologists use IV glutathione, in 15 different treatments, for skin lightening. Is this an expensive gimmick? And even if it did work, it would seem it would be necessary to continue the treatment, and would not be permanent.

  • The main purpose ofglutathione is to actually protect the cells of the body from harmful toxins. 

While glutathione is becoming popular as a skin lightener, especially among Asians, most stories about this being effective are anecdotal.

For treatment of hyperpigmentation, melasma, or brown (age) spots, our Program for Hyperpigmentation is every effective.

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
