Skin lightening products, also called bleaching creams or fading creams, reduce a pigment in the skin called melanin. This helps people to treat their skin problems such as acne scars, age spots, freckles, or discoloration associated with hormones. Skin lightening products are available in the market in various forms such as scrubs, face masks, cleansers, toners, creams, and lotions.

An upcoming trend gaining immense popularity in the global skin lightening products market is inclusion of UV absorbers in the formulations of skin lightening. Demand for these products is especially high in tropical regions where intensity of UV rays is high and effects are more harmful.

APEJ will be Largest Market for Skin Lightening Products during 2017 to 2022
Traditional association of beauty with light skin tones is a major influencing factor for growth of the skin lightening products in APEJ, particularly in India and China.

In addition, the skin lightening products market is projected to reflect the highest CAGR in APEJ through 2022, followed by Middle East & Africa and North America.
By nature, although conventional skin lightening products will continue to be more preferred among consumers, organic skin lightening products are expected to witness a tremendous expansion in sales through 2022. Harmful side-effects of synthetic ingredients in conventional skin lightening products have led consumers towards adoption of products with sustainably-sourced ingredients, which are ethically harvested without using pesticides. This growing demand for organic skin lightening products has compelled companies to make investments in green chemistry for manufacturing their products, which in turn would result into advancements in product formulations.
