Are you one of the many people affected by dark, muttled skin as they get older? Have you noticed dark spots and wrinkles in your skin that simply weren't there before? If that's the case, than the melanin in your skin may be responsible. Melanin in humans is the primary determinant of what your skin color will be. As we get older, the melanin in our skin begins to react differently, sometimes pooling in sensitive areas to create dark spots or areas of the body that are much darker than others. This change in melanin is most often seen in the face, where the focus of our eyes always seems to rest. There are products on the market now that can counteract these changed. Think it smart to learn more?
So, the question is, can Meladerm help your skin become evenly toned while regaining its luster and strength?
In the spring of 1999, Civant Skin Care embarked on a plan to develop the company's most powerful skin lightening product. Not only was this formula meant to be effective, but also safe for normal use. Their inspiration led to the creation of Meladerm, a fast acting skin brightener and anti-dark spot cream that has become very popular over recent years. Meladerm brags that while its ingredients are commonly found in other, similar products, it is far different because of its unique blend. In order to harness the true power of the active ingredients, great care must be taken when manufacturing the product. And that is exactly what Civant Skin Care claims they've done. On their main website, Meladerm showcases several clinical studies performed on their ingredients (not their product) proving their potential to help eliminate dark spots. Meladerm can be shipped locally as well as internationally, and offers its customers a 30 day money back guarantee. Meladerm costs $49.95 for a one month’s supply.
There are a few positive points to consider when deciding whether or not to purchase Meladerm. Meladerm offers its customers a 30 day money back guarantee. Also, Meladerm is slightly cheaper than some of its competitors.
Every product claims to offer the best results for the money, Meladerm may be promising too much though – or so these negatives would suggest. Regarding the negatives, Meladerm's 30 day money back guarantee is only applicable should the company choose to give you an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number, which they provide only if and or when you meet their personal satisfaction that you used the product correctly. While Meladerm may have an easy to use website, their manufacturer has also produced dozens of similar sites with varying tags next to the name, such as Meladermreview.com and Meladermcreaminfo.com, both restate the same positive information under the guise of questionable testers and reviewers. Users with darker skin complexions will also have to use Meladerm more often and for longer amounts before seeing results.
The ingredients in this product can be found to the right.

Unfortunately the concentration of these ingredients is neither cited nor listed among the daunting amount of information given on the main website. While this product does contain a lot of “good” ingredients, it also offers several questionable ones, such as peppermint and lemon, both of which smell good but can cause irritation and are known to be phototoxic to the skin. Meladerm also offers its customers a 30 day money back guarantee for their $49.99 investment. This offer, however, is only available under the manufacturer’s discretion. Several testimonials have been given on popular review sites claiming that Civant Skin Care would not give its users refunds because they did not “use it correctly” which, if true, seems very shady on their part. Finally, and what is essentially the nail in the coffin, we come to the manipulative marketing of this product. While it's common to see several pages dedicated to a single product, the manufacturer of Meladerm has taken it upon themselves to employ some very dirty marketing techniques which consist largely of creating potentially fake or misleading websites that give slanted and overly-positive reviews to its product. Because of this we are unable to recommend Meladerm for use at this time.
