Does anyone have any experience with the lightening ingredient "Sepiwhite" (also known as Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine)? And what do you think about it? I read it thinned skin or something but I think that was just a rumour and is false. Shock I'm using a serum with Sepiwhite as one of the ingredients, for lightening, and I just wonder if anyone has any personal experience with this ingredient? I'm hoping it's a safe ingredient to use!

I'm sorry, I'm totally unfamiliar with this.

I think its hydroquinone you might be thinking of when you say it "thins skin". Ive never had a problem with SepiWhite. I use it in one of my serums along with niacinamide and N-acetyl glucosamine (among others) and its quite nice.

SepiWhite is not an overnight quickie treatment and wont give you the "Quick&Dirty" lightening that HQ does tho. Combining it with AHAs makes it work faster.

Its waxy and a bit hard to work with if you are going to DIY. It wont work in a thin clear serum.

An in vivo study of it:

Thank you fawnie! I've read people online question if it thins skin or not, but it seemed like it was just a rumour. Confused

That study was very helpful! I'm still a little nervous to use Sepiwhite because it's quite new. But I suppose companies like MaryKay and Olay probably wouldn't use it if it seemed unsafe or could thin skin or anything of that sort. Confused It seems to be working to lighten quite well. Shock

Your serum with all 3 of those ingredients sounds very intriguing!
