After 12 weeks of treatment a 28.6% decrease in color of the age spots was observed, while size decreased by 8.6%.

Gigawhite skin whitening results were evaluated after 3 months (12 weeks) of continued, consistent use by visual evaluation and objective color measurement.  Substantial changes were observed after just six weeks of treatment, with scores showing a lightening of 12.2%.  After three months even more whitening is observed with a decrease in spot darkness of 24%.

Gigawhite combined with the potent power of Swiss Edelweiss (twice as effective as Tamarind-SeedsVitamin C) and Tamarind Seed Extract, the GS Swiss Brightening Cream, is a silky, powerful and lightweight cream that not only helps to visibly lighten age spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation but also works effectively to combat premature signs of aging, sagging skin and promotes a healthy, balanced pH for glowing, younger looking skin.
