Excessive use of aha – alpha hydroxy acids. Very natural and very safe yes I can’t fault it because it is the most naturally derived of most compounds used today.
However , aha can thin your skin and cause black patches. When you have over used aha your skin turns black after using it again.
Glycolic acid causes what is called hot spots. Little areas of inflammation which get worse when they are exposed to the sun. The skin reacts and turns black.
Kojic acid is a fantastic compound derived from fermentation of rice.
Wonder why rice water makes skin beautiful ? Wonder why after it easy banned the Koreans turned to fermented products and essences ?
So kojic acid we see now is chemically synthesised. Not withstanding the source using the raw product in your creams at levels higher than 1% is certified, proven to cause thyroid cancer. Thyroid cancer is fatal. The likelihood of death is real along with long term disability.
Mercury is a fantastic skin whitener but is also a fantastic kidney killer. It is absorbed through your skin and it causes kidney damage. Years after using mercury, kidneys begin to fail. You end up on chronic dialysis and may need a kidney transplant. All for beauty ? I think it’s pretty a sell out.
