Hi everyone. I heard that Metathione and Glutathione work in lightening skin. Does it really work? How safe is it? How fast is it? How much is a good dosage?

Hi Jesux. You heard that Metathione and Glutathione work in lightening the skin, where did you hear this, read somewhere perhaps. Gutathione is an antioxidant that protects cells from toxins such as free radicals. I'm not aware if theres any documented scientific evidence that it lightens the skin. It may help in appearance of the skin especially where one has some condition or just for your improvement but to rely on it as a skin lightener is something else, same to Metathione. Theoritically it is shown that skin can be lightened internally, that is by consumption of pills for example, but practically it has not been proven so if you find that it has, let us know.

Metathione is the name of the product, Glutathione is the ingredient that is installed inside. If you have any sort of hyperpigmentation, then there is a chance it would work. The fact that it is a powerful antioxidant is very important, if you're body is getting rid of toxins and is being cleansed then your skin should also be getting better. This should probably enable the discoloration to disappear and give a more healthy looking approach. Take a look at NAC for more information. It may help with the process if you do try it.

There's no actual evidence that it can lighten drastically. It's reported that it makes the skin brighter and slightly lighter in appearance, but nothing else.

The point is if your skin is naturally dark then it probably wont work, however if it's due to hyperpigmentation then it may well work by clearing your system of unhealthy toxins.

Hyperpigmentation is typically triggered by overexposure to the sun. It is rarely a 'toxin' issue. Using an exfoliant like RA, a good sunblock & staying out of the sun will help you too.

Depends what type though. Even if it is caused by the sun, taking care of your health will help a great deal.
