DEVELOPMENT OF MORE EFFECTIVE SKIN BLEACHES

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

DEVELOPMENT OF MORE EFFECTIVE SKIN BLEACHES for ethnic consumers with hyperpigmentation is an area with "great possibilities for...profits," dermatologist Albert Kligman, MD, said in a symposium on "New Frontiers in Skin Care" at the HBA Global Expo in New York City June 6-9. "I can tell you that the [current] over-the-counter bleaching creams are almost worthless," he said, adding, "They have a slight effect if you use them for about a year, and it's inadequate. We've got to do better." Kligman asserted that "pigmented peoples don't care so much about wrinkles; they care...a lot about discoloration." He noted that in general most of the "products made for black skin are rarely systematically tested...[and] are acnegenic."
