Manufacturer’s Claim

This review examines Dr. Thrower’s Skin Lightening Moisturizing Lotion in its context. A formulation which the manufacturer claims might bring about gradual fading of dark areas in the skin such as freckles, age and liver spots.

Hydroquinone helps correct unwanted discoloration and protects against future damage.

Inactive ingredients:

  • Argan Oil
  • Tamanu Oil
  • Sonne Natural Vegetable Oil

Argan Oil works to lightly moisturize the skin, soften dry patches, and even reduce acne.
Tamanu Oil is a treatment for acne and acne scars, eczema, age spots, skin rashes, and general scarring. Sonne Natural Vegetable Oil has a creamy application and is recommended for use in cosmetic applications where an emollient and moisturizer is needed. Tea Tree Oil calms redness, swelling, and inflammation helps to prevent and reduce acne scars.

This product could be much more effective if it contained 10% active ingredients with a minimum of 5 patented, clinically proven ingredients such as Regu-Fade, Alpaflor Gigawhite, Pentavitin, Stay-C 50, and PhytoCellTec Alp Rose.

Pentavitin is 100% natural and plant-derived with both ECOCERT approval and NATRUE certification. The unique Saccharide Isomerate (active) is formed by isomerization of plant-derived D-glucose and similar to that of the carbohydrate complex found in human skin. It does not contain any preservatives. It is suitable for use in both skin and hair care applications. Stay-C 50 a white to off-white, odorless powder, consisting of a stabilized (phosphorylated) sodium salt of an L-ascorbic acid. Esterification of ascorbic acid at position 2 protects vitamin C from destruction by oxidation. The L-ascorbate molar activity of the phosphorylated ester of vitamin C is equivalent to L-ascorbic acid.

Regu-Fade has excellent skin lightening properties for a radiant and youthful looking skin. Regu-Fade visibly brightens the skin within two weeks. Gene expression studies have proved that Regu-Fade reduces skin pigmentation via multiple target mechanism with increased efficacy. Alpaflor Gigawhite a skin lightener developed from Alpine plants. Alpaflor Gigawhite can brighten and even skin tone as well as reduce the color intensity of age spots. A botanical extract blend of 7 alpine plants which helps to reduce tyrosinase activity and inhibit melanin production. These extracts also give the skin a more even skin tone, which is brighter and more luminous.

PhytoCellTec Alp Rose promotes the vitality and longevity of skin stem cells. It strengthens the skin barrier, providing better protection to the skin against climate-induced stress. PhytoCell Tec Alp Rose combines two important approaches. Using plant stem cells delays skin aging by protecting vital skin stem cells, keeping the skin looking youthful longer, and giving it a better and more vital appearance. At the same time, PhytoCell Tec Alp Rose protects the skin using special protective ingredients from this extremely resistant alpine plant.
