Ginsium-C Skin Lightening Creme fades age spots naturally The results of 4 years of testing in our research laboratories, Ginsium-C has been proven to work in 95% of the test subjects who have used it to lighten their complexion or fade away age or liver spots on the skin. Dark patches and age spots are caused by melanin formation in the skin. Ginsium-C blocks the production of new melanin. It does not remove the melanin already formed. That existing melanin must be lost through the normal 28-day cycle of skin cell turnover. Those older, melanin-rich cells will slowly come to the skin's surface and be sloughed off naturally, then replaced by new cells with less melanin. This produces a gradual lightening of the skin and complexion. The formula also contains a sun protectant to prevent more tanning and melanin formation.
