Revitol Skin Brightener (Herbal-based Cream) REVIEW - Here's what we found...
Revitol is a member of the Natural Products Association and are a self proclaimed trusted name in health and beauty since 2002. They are dedicated to providing safe and effective skin care product supplements.
Cashing in on the desperate need by consumers to stay young and beautiful forever, Revitol produces a line of skin care products from skin brightening cream to scar removal to cellulite treatments. The site warns the products are not FDA regulated nor are they intended to treat, diagnose or cure any disease or condition.
What do they say about their product?
“Revitol Skin Brightener Cream is your safe, herbal-based solution for a beautiful, glowing complexion”
Revitol is an all natural solution to uneven skin colouring due to overexposure to sun, age, and genetics. They focus on the use of herbal remedies, alleviating concerns over the use of hydroquinone as a skin lightening agent which is considered a carcinogenic.
Let’s talk about the “natural” ingredients
The key skin lightening agent is a hydroquinone derivative called “Arbutin”. Arbutin is found in wheat and is concentrated in pear skin. Both hydroquinone and arbutin inhibit tyrosinase production. Tyrosinase is an enzyme in melanocytes that allows for the conversion of tyrosine to melanin, the pigment in skin responsible for darkening, tanning, freckles and age spots.
The list of ingredients is readily available on the main page although it is not clear at what concentration. Here are the technical highlights of some of those natural ingredients:
Arbutin – a derivative of hydroquinone, inhibits tyrosinase activity that allows melanin production, the pigment produced in melanocytes responsible for producing dark colour in the skin such as those that are activated during sun exposure.
Lumiskin - Diacetyl Boldine - is a potent anti-oxidant that enriches the skin and gives it an amazing glow while it evens out the skin tone.
Allanatoin – Embrionic plant and animal cell derivative used widely in dermatological products. Promotes and stimulates healthy cell growth and encourages exfoliation by lysing keratin a tough protein that makes up hair and nails and is responsible for excess scaly skin such as that found in conditions such excema, psoriasis, chapped lips and dry skin.
Shea Butter – This is the fat of the shea nut. Used in skin care products, salves and in cooking or chocolate production. It is readily absorbed by the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. There are five grades of shea butter, only the highest grade will retain the natural nutty aroma. Used as an anti-inflammatory an emollient and a humectant. A humectant is a substance that attracts water. It can also be used as a sun block.
What users have been saying
User reviews are split on both sides with some saying the product was incredible, they were really pleased with the lightening results and recommending it to their friends.
However, one user on Amazon.com complained that the product did not result in any lightening of two burn marks on her skin. She had followed the instructions and had been using it to the letter for two months with no change, but undeterred she was going to continue to use the product for 5 months before giving up.
Another user claims she has actually experienced some darkening of the skin and attempted to return the product for her money back. She was not given her money back as the package had been opened and it must be returned in the same packaging. All users do recognize the product as a good moisturizer, probably because of the shea butter in the product.
The site makers get a bonus for providing a list of ingredients but thumbs down on a questionable return policy. Users seem to be generally quite happy with the product as a skin softener but the results as a skin lightener seem to be inconsistent. It should be kept in mind that this is a gentle product with all natural ingredients and that different skin types would react differently. It is certainly a safer way to try to brighten your skin than with products containing the harsher chemical, hydroquinone.
