Ingredients We Never Use

  • Hydroquinone
  • Parabens
  • Mineral Oil
  • Phthalates
  • Sulfates
  • Artificial Fragrance
 
 

No Hydroquinone

Once a common ingredient used in many topical skin lightening treatments, hydroquinone is now restricted by the FDA due to safety concerns. Some countries have even banned the use of hydroquinone completely due to cases of exogenous ochronosis and leukoderma. Civant products are hydroquinone-free and instead utilize many natural skin brightening ingredients that can effectively reduce the appearance of dark spots and skin discolorations.
 
 

Backed By Science

From the ingredients we choose to the formulations we create with them, research drives our skincare mission–it’s the cornerstone of everything we do here at Civant.
