Skin lightening is a gradual process that may require various treatments. Also, keep in mind that the key to a good skin lightening is how well you care for your skin and avoid excessive sun exposure. Use sun screen spf 80+ when outdoors. Wear a hat and protective clothing if necessary to avoid getting sunburned. This is very important, because your skin is slowly peeling and exposing new lighter skin to the surface. If this new skin gets sunburned or is not protected well from the sun, it can compromise your results and actually make it easier for your skin to tan since it is very sensitive.

More information on ingredients:
Kojic Acid: Kojic Acid is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice. Since the enzyme Tyrosinase contains copper, Kojic Acid is able to effectively chelate (remove) the copper by lowering the PH level around Tyrosinase. Once the copper cofactor is removed, Tyrosinase activity is suppressed and hence so is melanin production.
Arbutin: Arbutin provides a skin lightening effect on the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity. Though arbutin is a natural derivative of hydroquinone, it does not possess the same risks or side effects. Arbutin has been shown to be a very safe ingredient and does not break down into hydroquionone very readily.
