8 Natural Ingredients To Lighten Skin and Remove Dark Spots

Updated on May 26, 2016

It’s hard to over-estimate the importance of taking care of your skin. It’s the body's largest organ and is the first line of defence against infection and disease. So, if you notice splotches, dark spots, or any skin pigmentation issues, you definitely want to do what you can to prevent further damage. The good news, though, is that you can fix a lot of pigmentation problems yourself. This article will go over eight home remedies you can use to lighten your skin and eliminate any unsightly blemishes or dark spots.

The Dangers of Skin-Whitening Treatments

Typically, hydroquinone and mercury have been the main ingredients used in skin-bleaching products. They work by inhibiting the production of melanin, the chemical that turns skin darker in the short term. However, recent research shows that in the long term these ingredients can be toxic. In fact, these ingredients can darken skin and cause premature aging if used for extended periods of time. Fortunately science has discovered a number of natural whitening ingredients that work just as well as the synthetic ones, without the harmful side effects. These natural ingredients work by:

  1. absorbing harmful UV rays from the sun
  2. inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin which causes the dark pigmentation

8 Natural Skin-Whitening Ingredients

#1 - Citrus Extracts

Lemon juice and orange peels are natural skin bleaching agents. They contain lots of vitamin C, which plays an important role in producing the collagen fibres that help support your skin and keep it firm. When applied topically, Vitamin C has been shown to slow down hyperactive melanocytes. These are the cells that produce melanin in the basal layers of the skin which causes the skin to "tan" or become darker.

#2 - Kojic Acid

A white crystalline powder derived from a fungus in Asia, kojic acid has long been used in Japan as a natural alternative to hydroquinine and is very effective at reducing skin discoloration. According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, kojic acid has been clinically shown to reduce hyper-pigmentation. It works by inhibiting the function of tyrosinase, the protein responsible for producing melanin. It also acts as an antioxidant and is suitable for sun damaged or sensitive skin.

#3 - Licorice Extract

Glycyrrhiza glabra (Liquorice Plant)
Glycyrrhiza glabra (Liquorice Plant)

The juice derived from the roots of the licorice plant has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for all kinds of skin ailments. In the early 1990s, Japanese scientists identified the compound glabridin in liquorice, which absorbs UVA and UVB rays and acts as a powerful and effective skin-whitening element.

A clinical study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry has shown that glabridin can inhibit the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase by as much as 50% – and without damaging skin cells! Licorice extract is effective in treating post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (including dark spots), can also be used to reverse the damage caused by acne scars, and contains anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe the skin and reduce redness.

#4 - Bearberry Extract

Bearberry extract comes from the leaves of the plant, not the fruit!
Bearberry extract comes from the leaves of the plant, not the fruit!

This ingredient comes from the leaves of the plant rather than the fruit. Bearberry or beargrape is used as an astringent in many cosmetics and contains Alpha arbutin, which is known to lighten the skin fast.

Arbutin has been proven to effectively lighten freckles, dark spots, and other skin discolourations. A study conducted by the pharmaceutical company Pentapharm found that a 1% Alpha arbutin concentration, revealed arbutin to have a "skin lightening effect” even greater than the same concentrate of hydroquinone.

Bearberry extract is also useful because it contains sun protection filters that may help to reduce the amount of “tanning” experienced after sun exposure, thereby slowing or reversing signs of aging on the skin.

#5 - Phyllanthus Emblica (Indian Gooseberry)

The extract from this plant contains antioxidants, has anti-microbial properties, and is rich with Vitamin C. Emblica extract protects the skin from sun damage and helps reduce hyperpigmentation.

A study on people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds conducted by Dr. Zoe Draelos, a clinical and research dermatologist, found that emblica contained powerful skin-lightening properties that were equivalent to, or better than, those achieved by conventional skin-lighteners like hydroquinine.

Emblica has been shown to protect the skin against oxidative stress, reduce wrinkles, regulate melanin production, and help the skin retain its natural moisture.

#6 - Gigawhite®

Gigawhite is formulated from 7 Alpine plants

Gigawhite is a patented skin brightener that is effective in treating dark spots and melasma. It is derived from seven organically grown Swiss alpine plants, which include the peppermint plant, the common mallow and primula (cowslip).

Over one hundred Alpine plants were originally selected for their ability to inhibit tyrosinase (the enzyme responsible for melanin production). From those, the seven plants that exhibited the highest tyrosinase-inhibiting activity were used to create a natural skin-whitening agent, which is now widely used as an alternative to hydroquinine.

In clinical studies from pharmaceutical companies, Gigawhite was shown to markedly reduce the appearance of dark spots in Asian subjects aged 22-55. Over a 12-week period, the subjects tested showed a decrease of 24% in skin discoloration and an increase of 15.3% in skin lightening, with minimal to no skin irritation.

#7 - White Mulberry Extract

The white mulberry tree (Morus alba) is native to China and has been found to have many health benefits. In addition to preventing heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes, it can also help to whiten the skin.

White mulberry extract is a natural inhibitor of the enzyme tyrosinase. This enzyme triggers the production of melanin (brown pigment) in the skin.

According to the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, clinical trials have established that white mulberry and paper mulberry are both effective skin-whitening agents and are suitable for dermatological use. The study found that a 0.4% concentration of mulberry extract reduced tyrosinase activity by 50%.

#8 - Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)

Vitamin B3, or Niacinamide, has been shown to reduce the production of melanin (pigment) and acts as an effective skin-lightening agent when added to skin creams. When applied topically, vitamin B helps the skin to retain moisture, making it feel softer and smoother and reducing fine lines.

If you are looking to purchase a whitening cream to lighten your skin colour or reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation, check first to see if it contains some of the ingredients listed here.

One product I can recommend is Meladerm by Civant Skincare. It contains a large number of natural whiteners and my daughter used this to successfully treat areas of hyperpigmentation that were bothering her.

Be aware that products for skin lightening can be labelled as either "brighteners" or "whiteners." Generally skin “brightening” products are designed to exfoliate your skin and may contain AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) that will help to remove dead skin cells and some of the excess pigmentation that has accumulated. Your skin will appear fresh and “brighter” but the ingredients may not actually whiten the skin.

Whitening ingredients are sometimes added to these skin brighteners, but not always.
Most products sold online will allow you to see a full list of the ingredients so have a quick look before you buy.The choice of ingredients will, of course, depend on the results you are hoping to achieve.

If you have any questions about how to use these ingredients or other suggestions for how to whiten your skin please put them in the comments below!

      Hi Avelia. White mulberry extract would be suitable for whitening. I'm not sure about mangosteen. I usually just buy a whitening cream with natural ingredients so Im not sure what proportions you would use to create your own whitening lotion.

      I think you mean which ones can I add to body cream? Licorice and bearberry extract can be added in small amounts to your lotion. Also kojic acid powder can be added. It helps to warm the lotion slightly before mixing in new ingredients.

      Hi Nicholas. Arbutin does work but l8ke any skin care routine you need to be patient to see results. People usually see results after a month of use but continue until they are happy with their skin tone. It will vary according to how dark your sk8n is.

      Hi Gift. The procedure for making a skin whitening soap is quite lengthy. You will need a base like aloe vera, goats milk or glycerin to which you add your chosen ingredients like oatmeal, citrus etc. Then you use a double broiler to melt the ingreduents together.

      Hi femi kay

      It will take longer to see results if you have very dark skin but it sounds like your recipe is working for you. I think it would be okay to use this on your body as well as the ingredients are all natural.

      Sometimes the ingredients in sunscreen can irritate the skin and make it feel like it is "burning". You could try a different sunscreen. Even one designed for babies or children that use zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These ingredients do not usually irritate the skin.

      May God bless you (my appologies incase you do a different religion) for these life saving facts.

      I am Nigerian and it's even more difficult to have a radiant fair/bright complexion due to the fire climate. Sunscreen even make me feel worse as it makes me feel like am cooking when under the sun. Why is it so? I have also been using cream containing arbutin, kojic and gluthiation but the result is super slow. I have waited for about 2months and saw a slight change. Lastly, do I necessarily need to make a different cream for my face or I can still use same cream I use on my body containing the stuffs I earlier mentioned. Tnx a lot.

      Alternatively look for a whitening cream that contains these ingredients, like Meladerm.

      Hi Eeshh. If you using powdered Kojic acid you might need to heat your lotion slightly to mix in the kojic acid. Do not overheat!

      You would need to apply a lightening cream or mask to the areas that are not tanned. You should avoid the sun where possible and when you go out in the sun you need a high sun protection factor sunscreen or the dark areas will become darker again.

      I love the Image Dermalmd Lightening Serum. I have used it for the last 6 months. I had really dry skin and since using it, it has made my skin soft and very mositurized. I also have very dark circles and since using the serum I have noticed that my dark circles have become much lighter. I have been very pleased with this product, however progress doesn't happen overnight be patient and you will see results!

      Thanks for your useful information. I often pay attention to the topic related to the home remedies for beautiful skin. It is good if you can have intake of necessary nutrients for the skin. However, in order to get better and quick result, you should try some home remedies for whitening skin.

      There are some useful information in here:

      Hi. I would recommend Meladerm Skin lightening cream which is available online. If you can't get this, then try looking for skin lightening recipes online that use natural ingredients. Recipes that include tumeric, gram flour or orange/ lemon peel would be suitable.

      You can buy these ingredients individually to mix up your own skin whitening cream but it is easier to look for skin whitening recipes online that use natural ingredients.

      Alternatively look for skin whiteners that contain these ingredients like Kojic Acid soap or Meladerm Cream.

      Hi Olamide. I wouldn't use any lightening products on children but I would use a good quality sunscreen that is suitable for children to avoid the sun damaging her skin.

      You should see results in the first two weeks of using a skin lightening product/ or mask. It can take 10-12 weeks to achieve the desired result, depending on how dark your skin is to start with and what result you are hoping to achieve.

      Hi Rey. I haven't come across this issue but I have read that honey or lemon can be applied to the lip overnight. A paste made with berries like raspberry or strawberry can also help. If you search this issue on Google you can find other natural ingredients that will lighten lips.

      DermalMD Lightening Serum is the product I have found to lighten my melasma. It's been almost 6 months but I specifically used it on one area and not another....glad I did so I could see the difference but wish I had trusted it. I've spent lots of money trying different things and nothing worked except this.
