Most of this skin whitening treatments act by blocking melanin production.
Their main action is to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase. Several treatments use a combination of gels or lotions along with a sunscreen. Below are some of the components you will find in skin whitening products:

*. Hydroquinone – primarily, this substance is used for whitening the skin because of its antioxidant abilities. Cosmetic concentrations are available in 2%, which can be gotten over the counter while other concentrations are at 4%. Contrary to what people think Hydroquinone does not bleach the skin but it helps lighten the skin.

 *. Kojic Acid – The by-product of malting rice or the process of sake production. Studies have shown that Kojic acid is efficient in inhibiting melanin production but this is also an unstable ingredient in without the right cosmetic formulation. When exposed to sunlight, this can turn brown and therefore lose efficiency. Several cosmetic companies have used Kojic dipalmitate as potent alternative.
*. Arbutin – this is an effective alternative to hydroquinone. Arbutin is gotten from mulberry, white mulberry, bearberry, and paper mulberry. The action of arbutin is to inhibit the production of melanin. Some forms of arbutin are also found in pears and this substance is considered safe over other skin whitening ingredients.

*. Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) – This ingeredient can easily penetrate the skin because of its  molecular size. The benefit of AHA is to generate cell regeneration and remove abnormal layers of the skin (exfoliation). The superficial layer of the skin is where most discolorations occur.
