Lemon Peel Bioferment Skin Brightening Serum

Lemon Peel Bioferment is touted as being as effective as hydroquinone for lightening the skin and overall brightening. The research supporting such a claim is scant at best. It is known that citral and myrcene have inhibitory effect of tyrosinase. Citric acid itself has a long history of efficacy. Niacinamide and N-acetyl D glucosamine are proven lightening agents.
SkinCare forum is available to ask and answer questions. SEA has been invited to participate at that venue.
