    Anyone here tried mullberry extract?

    Apparently its really effective. It is mentioned that its more effective than kojic acid and hydroquinone due to producing the same effect at lower concentrations with minimal to no skin irritation.
    Im not sure if anyone has used it for skin lightening its not something often used or spoken about like kojic acid or hydroquinone. I might put it to the test by using it on one leg only just to see how it goes.

    I found a site that sells it and it comes in a 20% solution. https://www.makingcosmetics.com/Mulb...ract_p_17.html

    It says its water soluble, so Im assuming I should use it with a water based lotion? I want to use a 5% concentration, so should I pour 5mls into a 650ml Jergens lotion? Im unsure how to go about this

    Hi @Summer , solubility refers to the solvent. You can add this extract to any lotion. Most lotions use water in their formulations to dissolve additives. Mulberry root extract is a natural lightener hence its more efficacious if mixed with other skin lighteners such as licorice root extract, HQ, skinwhite msh, skinwhite BLE, kojic acid, tranexamic acid and alpha-arbutin.
    To get a 5% concentration in your 650 ml lotion, you will need 35ml of the mulberry root extract.

    @yemeve
    thanks for the reply
    that is true, it does say that on their website that it is better when combined with things like alpha arbutin and kojic acid etc.
    How did you calculate the mls required to get a 650ml lotion?
    What if I needed 1L of lotion, how much of the mullbery root extract do I need?

    Kojic acid is thinning my skin. I just need something effective so that I can reduce the use of kojic acid!
    im depressed and hopeless =(
    If you know of any proven effective ways of thickening the skin please help me out!

    You were right....soluble, means it is soluble in any water based product. It will not work in an oil based product.
