    1. The Science Behind The Beauty.
    Skinception, Illuminatural 6i Advanced Skin Lightener.

    "Very high in antioxidants, especially bioflavonoids, which have antioxidant properties that are much more powerful than vitamins C and E. Useful for fighting free radicals and for maintaining capillary health, grape seed extract offers powerful protection against the breakdown of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which together make up much of the cellular matrix and support the capillaries. When capillaries are strong, they stretch to allow red blood cells through tight spaces, and do not let fluids in the blood leak out. When they are weak, blood can pool and create inflammation. Grape seed extract has also been shown to treat edema (swelling)."

    2. Lumnaskin Review - How Effective is This Skin Lightening Product?
    Darlene Manchester. Submitted on May 05,2010.

    "Almost all skin lighteners (also known as skin brighteners) on the market today contain chemical derivatives (Hydroquinone or Kojic Acid) and they often can do more harm than good in the long run. But Lumnaskin is a powerful mixture of potent ingredients of natural plant origins. Such as, Seaweed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract and Alchemilla Vulgaris (Lady's Mantle) Extract."
