Does Fair &White Gold contain hydroquinone?
Yes, some of the products have Hydroquinone up to the recommended concentrations of 2%. This amount is allowed by the FDA and it is safe.
Hydroquinone has been in use for many centuries. People have been using it for a long time for its brightening and skin lightening properties. However, in the 21st century, people started speculating whether it is safe to use or not? So, the health organizations, scientists, researchers and skin specialists from the US, Canada, France and some other countries weighed the pros and cons of Hydroquinone and came to the conclusion that its benefits and its skin lightening and brightening properties cannot be questioned, neither they can be substituted. So, it was decided that instead of completely banning, its use should be carefully regulated. And the permissible amount was decided to be up to 2%.
So, all F&W skin lightening products contain Hydroquinone up to 1.9%, which is a very safe concentration. However, it is strongly advised for pregnant or nursing ladies to not use these products, as they can be harmful to the baby.
Having said this, we should mention that not all F&W Gold products contain Hydroquinone. Fair & White Gold AHA Brightening Cream and Fair & White Gold AHA Brightening Lotion are free of Hydroquinone.
Once you achieve results from other lightening products, it is advised to use these above-mentioned Hydroquinone free products to use as a follow up for maintenance therapy.
Is Fair & White Gold good for fair skin?
It is a wonderful line comprising of very safe products. These products are formulated to work on all types and tones of skin, without any racial discrimination. They can be used for different ethnicities, but the results vary for each skin type and tone.
Most people see a dramatic effect within 2 -3 weeks, while others with darker skin tones may see results in 4-6 weeks. If there is no improvement after 10 weeks, product usage should be stopped.
While using these products, the regular usage of SPF 50 F&W Gold sunscreen daily is necessary, to prevent the aggravation of hyperpigmentation, and darkening of skin tone.
To achieve the best and long-lasting results, it is advised to go through the “directions of use” properly. And follow up with the suggested products. All the information about these products is available on the Fair & White website as well as on the individual product description manuals.
Is Fair &White Gold a bleaching cream?
Yes, some products in the line have active bleaching agents for producing the desired effects of lightened skin colour, removal of blemishes and scars while giving the skin an even tone. But these bleaching agents are used with proper consideration and their concentrations are carefully regulated, so as not to produce any harsh outcomes. And this makes a difference! Because other bleaching products that are available for commercial use are stronger and harsher and may possess a health hazard.
With Fair & White products, you can safely assume that they are very balanced, and they are formulated with extreme caution.
However, not all F & W products for skin lightening contain bleaching agents. Most of them are exfoliators that work their magic of clarifying the skin through natural ingredients like Apricot seed powder or gentle beads for micro-exfoliation. These products deeply cleanse the skin and remove all impurities and dead cells layer from the epidermis. This action alone can produce wonderful effects of a bright, even, and radiant skin tone with a healthy glow.
These exfoliation products should be used with care and their “direction of use” should be followed properly to achieve positive results.
What does Fair &White Gold serum do?
It is enriched with an amazing and extraordinary blend with Argan oil. Argan oil is famous for its amazing properties, and when infused with other active ingredients, this serum becomes a perfect formula against stubborn dark spots and hyperpigmented areas.
It not only targets uneven skin tone and darkened age or exposure spots on the skin, but it also restores the clarity and radiance of the skin, making it luminous with a healthy glow and sheen.
It should be followed up with GOLD Cream for much-enhanced results.
Serums work best for normal to oily skin types, and for those who are prone to have acne scars.
The prescribed way to use it is that it should be applied on dry, cleansed skin, preferably at night. And during its usage, it is advised to avoid unnecessary exposure to the sun as it can reverse the effects and darken the skin instead. Or worse, it can cause irritation and inflammation. Even if sun exposure cannot be avoided, it is better to use SPF 50 Sunscreen daily to maintain the positive effects of the serum.
