Civant Skin Care is a cosmetics company established in 1999. The company has gotten its popularity mainly from their Meladerma product which is a trusted and powerful skin lightener. This product was officially released in 2003 and has since garnered several forms of recognition.
The Meladerma line of skin care products have been developed to help women get rid of age spots, dark circles under the eyes and signs of premature aging. The product also works well in cases of melasmas, hyper pigmentation among pregnant women and typical acne scars on the surface of the skin. The topical solution comes in a 1.7 ounce packaging and can be used for as long as 5 weeks. It sells for $50 on the online store.
The product has been developed by a team of chemists, pharmacies and researchers to ensure their safety and effectiveness. Most of the main active ingredients are plant extracts such as Alpha-Arbutin, Kojic Acid, Licorice and Bear Berry. Extensive research and development has made the Meladerma safe for long term use. However, those with sensitive skin have noticed light redness and some abrasion after using the product for some time.
None of the skin care products of Civant uses any form of hydroquinone, mercury, steroids or any harsh bleaching agents. Only pure plant extracts and mild synthetic products are used to guarantee safety and avoid toxicity for its users. Hydroquinone used to be the most popular choice when it comes to skin bleaching. However, recent studies have shown it to have many side effects one of which is slight discoloration of the skin.
The reliability of its products has since then become the “gold standard” in the cosmetics industry. The products in the Civant line of skin care cosmetics have been approved by the United States Food and Drugs Administration.
