Skin lightening products comprise cosmetics used to change the color and tone of the skin by lowering the production of melanin, the pigment in charge of giving our skin its natural color. They are commonly referred to as skin bleaching or whitening products and are formulated to lighten dark spots, even out skin tone, and achieve a lighter complexion. They frequently include active chemicals, including hydroquinone, kojic acid, arbutin, retinoids, and vitamin C, which function by preventing the development of melanin or by encouraging the exfoliation of the top layers of skin to expose lighter, younger skin cells beneath. While some individuals may choose to use skin lightening products to address specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation or melasma, others may use them to achieve a lighter skin tone due to cultural or societal influences. Moreover, the societal pressure to conform to certain beauty standards perpetuates colorism and reinforces harmful notions of superiority associated with lighter skin tones.
