Two years ago, I did a skin-lightening product by special request that was documented on this blog as a case study. One of the testers was 'Tester C' (picture above is from 'during the first phase' of the study in 2011).
She was satisfied with the results the product were beginning to provide, but not very happy with the texture (a gel base) of the product. Our test period ended after approximately 3 months. Both 'tester C' (and 'tester B') voiced interest in a different base (cream, serum or lotion).
Back to the Drawing BoardI have since been working with vitamin C in a few different bases, and it has taken several batches and a lot of tweaking, but has resulted in a vitamin-C cream. Anything with vitamin C in it is particularly difficult to work with, but I have been pleased enough with this texture to invite Tester C to continue our case study.
Below is our new 'before' picture. Tester C reports that she has been very aware of keeping out of the sun and has even dabbled in applying freshly squeezed lemon juice on the spots 'as often as she remembers'.
It will be interesting to see if this new texture will be more of a hit. Updates shall be forthcoming!
