NeoStrata  NeoCeuticals Skin Brightening Gel 

Ingredient Analysis
1. Potassium Hydroxide. AKA Lye is used in a tiny amount in skincare as a pH adjuster. Most commonly used in cleansers as a base for liquid soaps and in higher concentrations is a significant skin sensitizer.
2. Morus Nigra Root Extract ( Mulberry Root ) moisturizing ingredient
3. licorice extract ( Glycyrrhiza ) anti-inflammatory; anti-allergic; the root has been proven to treat hyperpigmentation so its used in whitening products
4. Propylene Glycol. solvent; humectant; gives a product "slip"; helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; also enhances the efficacy of preservatives; controls viscosity
5. Polyquaterniums ( Polyquaternium- ) Film former and anti-static agent; used in haircare products; some are humectant moisturizers
6. Butylene Glycol. solvent; penetration enhancer; humectant moisturizer; in cleansing creams it dissolves dirt, avoids the product from drying too quickly during the removal stage & helps formulas spread better
7. Gluconolactone. serves as a skin conditioner/exfoliant (hydrolyses to Gluconic Acid) & chelator; also used as part of a preservative system
8. Glycolic Acid. Proven to reduce fine lines & wrinkles; hyperpigmentation; smooths, exfoliates & thickens skin; increases skin hydration & elasticity; good melasma treatment
9. preservatives ( Sodium Bisulfite ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
10. Coming soon! ( Yellow 5 ) Coming soon!
11. Amino Acids ( Arginine ) Widely used in moisturizers and emollients because they are thought to help penetrate the skin; have water-binding, antioxidant and wound-healing abilities
12. Citric Acid. mainly used as a cleaning agent & preservative; pH adjuster; in higher concentration it's an AHA (in peels & antiaging products)
13. Lactic Acid. the most moisturizing of AHAs; whitening astringent; exfoliant
14. Kojic Acid. Kojic Acid is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antioxidant ingredient.
15. Vitamin C ( Ascorbic Acid ) an antioxidant proven to give you photoprotection by preventing oxidation & inflammation; boosts collagen production; can lighten hyperpigmentation if the concentration is high enough; also used as pH adjuster/buffering agent; fragrance ingredient
16. solvents ( Aqua ) solvent
17. alcohols ( Alcohol Denat ) antiseptic solvent; dissolves oil; can be irritating & drying; sometimes used as a preservative
18. CI 19140. Ci 19140 is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an cosmetic color ingredient.
19. arbutin ( Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi ) lightened skin in in vitro studies, from hydroquinone; it's unclear how much is needed to show whitening effects. Low concentrations have no effect, while high concentrations of about 5% or more can be as irritating as hydroquinone & may potentially result in unexpected hyperpigmentation
20. PEGs ( PEG- ) helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; emollient; emulsifier; sufactant (cleans); solvent; the lower the number following, the more it can penetrate the skin; keeps products stable
