FAQs on Maxi Light Purifying and Brightening Cream
Does Maxi Light have hydroquinone?
Yes, it contains hydroquinone.
Is Maxi Light a bleaching cream?
Yes, it is. Lightening Milk Maxi Light S1 is enriched with glycerin and some other very active agents which are highly potent lightening treatments for the body. This formulation works to lighten the skin and fade brown spots by acting on the skin’s pigmentation system. Ultimately, the skin becomes more uniform, soft and silky.
Does Maxi Light have mercury?
After some tests by the Chicago tribune, it was discovered that Maxi light bleaching cream did not contain Mercury. However, they noted:
“This does not guarantee that they are mercury-free; tests on different batches of the same cream might yield different results.”
Is glycerin good for the skin?
Glycerin acts as a humectant by allowing the skin to retain moisture. This is great for the skin as it increases skin hydration, relieves dryness, and makes the skin look supple and youthful. It also acts as an emollient, which means that it can soften the skin.
Why is lanolin good for the skin?
Lanolin is gotten from plants and on the plants, it helps seal the plant leaves and shoots from excessive evaporation. When used in the production of a cosmetics product, it reduces transepidermal water loss or evaporation of water from the skin. This eventually keeps the skin moisturized and helps retain other lightening agents within the skin layers.
Can I use the cream every day?
Yes, you can. It is also a regular gel cream for use at night.
Where is Maxi Light body lotion produced?
It is produced on Ivory Coast
How much is Maxi Light cream in Nigeria?
