Let’s face it. Nobody wants to see ugly dark, uneven blotches on their skin. Products for removing age spots have been around for quite a long time. But given the fact that these products are, oftentimes, made with harsh chemicals, are you at risk of harming your skin if you use them? If the answer to that question is, “yes” are there safe alternatives to this risky type of age spot removal?
The most common ingredient found in the majority of age spot removers is called hydroquinone. It was first discovered and used by cultures that put a high value on having light skin. Later on, cosmetic companies began using hydroquinone in products specifically made for removing age spots.
Because this substance has had such a long history of use, it’s been considered “safe” and hasn’t been put through rigorous testing. That is, until recently.
Some scientists who have studied the safety of hydroquinone believe that it may be linked to an increased risk of cancer. Their concern has been serious enough to prompt several countries to ban it from use.
In the U.S., however, hydroquinone remains legal and in wide-spread use for age spot removal.
Since my personal research has been focused on natural skin care, I have investigated natural alternatives for removing age spots for people who don’t want to take risks with their health. Fortunately, I’ve discovered a safe, natural, and highly effective substance that is being used in products for age spot removal. Its called extrapone nutgrass root.
This plant with the funny-sounding name, grows in India and has been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal treatments. It’s power in removing age spots lies in its unique ability to inhibit melanin (brown skin pigment) formation and clumping. Clinical tests on human volunteers showed a remarkable 41% percent reduction in melanin.
In combination with other effective, bio-active substances, extrapone nutgrass root contributes to highly effective treatments for aging skin.
For example, phytessence wakame (Japaense sea kelp), Cynergy TK (sheep wool extract) and Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10 (special ‘nano-emulsion’ form of CoQ10) are used as powerful stimulators of natural collagen and elastin production. With the addition of extrapone nutgrass root for skin lightening and rich, plant-based emollients like avocado and macadamia nut oil for deep hydration, you have an anti aging combination that is difficult to compete with.
Don’t get me wrong. Removing age spots can still be accomplished with products that contain hydroquinone. But if you’d rather not expose yourself to unnecessary risk, you can use a safe, natural age spot removal product that comes with a bonus anti aging skin effect.
There are however a good amount of natural age spot removing products that will work much better and are safer than other products containing hydroquinone.
