Many people are unaware of what their time under the sun is doing to their skin. Photodamaged, otherwise known as sun damaged, skin is the price you pay for soaking in so much summer sun, tanning under UVA or UVB lamps, or simple exposure without sunscreen. Photodamage occurs when you are exposed to sunlight, whether or not you're attempting to tan your skin or are simply walking outside. Twenty five percent of our lifetime exposure occurs before the end of our teenage years, meaning the damage may have already occurred. Photodamage to skin manifests in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, mottled skin coloration, dark spots, and varying skin tones. Think it's smart to know more on how to counteract this damage before it becomes too severe?
So, the question is, Will ChromaWhite brighten your skin, or further darken your opinion about similar products?
The visible changes to your skin occur most frequently on areas of chronic exposure. The areas include but are not limited to: the face, ears, neck, backs of the hands, chest, arms, and legs. It's because of these changes that manufacturer Dermalogica has created ChromaWhite, a skin brightening treatment cream that claims to be able to smooth the pigment of your skin while restoring even, clean-looking color to your face and body. Dermalogica offers all of its customers a thirty day money back guarantee on their products, something rarely seen on such products. However, ChromaWhite's main website (where the guarantee can be found) seems only partially complete, with dead links and half written articles of information offered front and center. Because of this, we're not sure if the guarantee is genuine. ChromaWhite Trx is priced high at $188 for a single kit.
The results showing before and after usage are provided on the ChromaWhite website, though it is not clearly stated as to how quickly the results are achieved. Another positive aspect of this product is the fact that it is medically endorsed by a doctor. A unique note about ChromaWhite is the fact that it contains vitamin C, which helps to improve skin radiance. This product also offers a 30 day money back guarantee.
Details about the ingredients are not made available on the main website. This dark spot treatment has the potential to irritate the skin with each use. This product is very expensive, costing upwards of $188 for a single kit. ChromaWhite's website is not easy to navigate, and contains little to any information regarding the products ingredients, ability to brighten skin, and effectiveness. Also, ChromaWhite is not available for purchase on its own website, but instead must be bought from third party retailers. There are no customer testimonials or reviews by consumers who have tried the product. Neither are there clinical or scientific studies that prove ChromaWhite works the way it is marketed.
The ingredients in this product can be found to the right.
Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Oligopeptide-34, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldiethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polysorbate 60, Squalane, Zinc Glycinate, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Palmaria Palmata Extract, Phytic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Benzyl PCA, Phenoxyethanol.
Most beauty products in the market come with a money-back guarantee, which is the case for Dermalogica's skin brightening formula ChromaWhite. Before and after photos are offered by Dermalogica, although these images could be questioned since there are no accompanying customer testimonials or reviews. While that is forgivable, the general design of ChromaWhite's website confounds and complicates general research on the product, making it difficult to find things such as ingredients, effectiveness of the product, and any additional information on things such as side effects. Casting a large shadow over the entire product is the fact that Dermalogica warns of severe irritation from its own product, but states that these effects are normal. At almost $200 for a single kit of ChromaWhite, we would like to expect no negative side effects at all. But, as ChromaWhite has never gone through scientific or clinical trials, we're not surprised that such irritations may occur. Because of these overwhelming negatives, we're unable to recommend ChromaWhite for use at this time.
