Skin whitening treatments consist of reducing the melanin component in the skin. It is a natural chemical produced by melanocytes, which are cells in the human body. Melanin protects the skin by absorbing the ultraviolet (UV) light that we are exposed to due to sunlight. The melanin thus helps protect the skin against damage caused by sun rays. Risks of wrinkles, aging and patches are therefore reduced, as well as the risk of skin cancer, which results due to over exposure to UV rays. People from the equatorial areas with greater sun exposure have generally darker skins than people living in tropics.
