Always Make Sure You use a Safe Skin Illumination Cream

Many people are unaware that there are some fairly dangerous ingredients that are contained in many of the over-the-counter and prescribed skin brightening and illumination creams that can cause some very undesirable and adverse side effects, like peeling, scarring and scaly patches—just to name a few.

In fact, there have been many of these so-called illumination creams that are being banned worldwide, particularly in Asia, and that have been pulled from store and pharmacy shelves, as the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) has decided that they can only be used under clinical supervision because of their known and documented, associated side effects.

In an article that was published on the popular online news medium,, in early December, 2009, which highlighted a variety of now banned illumination creams, the article specifically warns consumers of the usages and dangers that are inherently associated with such products.

The article – which used information that was provided in a press release from the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB; Asia) – identifies several brands which have been pulled from store and pharmacy shelves, banned for sale in these countries forever.

The report cites,

“The National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB) has banned 12 cosmetic products that contain ingredients, including scheduled poisons, that are dangerous to health. The products are Felisa Gentle Peeling Solution, Krim Malam Rahsia Rimba, Biocosmet Whitening Essence Cream, H2O + Waterwhite Brightening Night Cream, Magixpress Lightening Plus, A.Vant Cream, Eriesya Spa Beauty Cream, Natasya Krim Herba, Temulawak Whitening Pearl Cream Papaya, Ratna Sari Whitening Night Cream, Atika Beauty Renewal Night Cream and Chantique Whitening Night Cream. The bereau cancelled the registration of the products over the past 11 months because they contained the prohibited ingredients tretinoin (retinoic acid) and hydroquinone. NPCB no longer allows the import, manufacture, distribution and sale of these products, and must be removed from the shelves.”
