This blog post was inspired by the many emails I have received from customers with specific questions about whitening soap. I thought it would be helpful to everyone if I summarized these questions because it’s helpful information that all women could use. 

1. Can skin Glutathione whitening soap cause dark spots or hyperpigmentation? 

2. I have sensitive skin can I still use Glutathione Soap for skin whitening?

Glutathione-based skin whitening soap is used by hundreds of our clients, as well as by me and other family members without problem. It is a favorite of many stars & celebrities in Asia, as a quick safe way to brighten dark areas. That being said, it is impossible to know how every person will react to a product. If after using it, you any reaction that is causes concern, then you should stop using it right away.

It is important to remember that many approved skin treatments can cause temporary hyperpigmentation in sensitive individuals. The most common problems are with glycolic peels and with tretinoin/retin-a. It is very likely that any temporary damage caused by these products is caused indirectly by the chronic inflammation that they can trigger in people with extra-sensitive skin. But every case I've ever seen the damage that occurs is mild and temporary unless the treatment is continued for an extended period and symptoms are ignored.

As I said this soap has been used by hundreds of our clients as well as by me and other family members without problem. However, it is important to remember that it may be unsuitable for those with sensitive skin, and to discontinue use if persistent redness or swelling occurs after using it. The only ingredients that might cause minor irritation or temporary inflammation are the goats milk (lactic acid) or the kojic acid. In addition, the soap contains rose hip & glutathione which are naturally anti-inflammatory. Those products have been used safely by literally millions of women so their safety is proven and without question.
