Complete List of Ingredients

Lemon hydrosol, decyl glucoside & sodium lauroyl lactylate, carbomer, water & arctostaphylos uva-ursi leaf & magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, alpha arbutin, cyclomethicone, yuzu essential oil, lemon & orange extract.


Lemon Hydrosol

One of our very own hand processed ingredients, Botaniko’s Lemon Hydrosol is made from a distillate of lemon peels to contribute bio-flavinoids for enhanced skin lightening and to reduce reddening. Botaniko always utilizes our own organically grown botanicals, transformed into hydrosols to replace any formulation requiring water. This valuable, ancient practice of distilling plants for therapeutic uses renders beautiful aromatic waters that further strengthen the formula benefit and its aroma. 

Alpha Arbutin

Recognized as the safest, most effective skin whitening compound, this ingredient is not to be mistaken for Beta Arbutin. Most manufactures use Arbutin, because it is far less expensive and easier to source than Alpha Arbutin. A patented ingredient manufactured in Switzerland, Alpha Arbutin has shown extraordinarily rapid and safe skin whitening properties and, therefore, is used extensively in our portfolio.

Giga White

Perhaps the most notable naturally-sourced skin whitening compound, Giga White brings the clinically-tested, fully documented benefits of 7 innovative plant extracts together in a potent delivery system developed in Switzerland. Used throughout the Botaniko Skin Lightening System, this ingredient enhances the efficacy of other active principles and ensures an even, luminous skin tone. 

Lemon and Orange Extract

Our Lemon and Orange extract comes from Spain and is a highly concentration of the blend that supports anti-inflammatory requirements as well as pigment lightening requirements.
