Maybe you could define what type of hyperpigmentation. Melasma? Sun damage?

Please try our skin brightening cream. Give it at least two months, which is the time it takes for the new skin to be visible.

Avoid the sun, wear sunblock.

Is it ok to apply the skin brightening cream all over the face?  I have some melasma and a bunch of freckles, so it'd be easier to apply all over rather than spot-apply.

It should be fine, but you must avoid the sun AND use sunscreen, otherwise the cream will do very little for your skin.

Arggggggggggg!

Same thing as TNS and all that stuff. I am sure I wrote about that many times.

I explained that I worked as a graduate student doing animal cell cultures. Isolated cells don't have kidneys so you remove the old culture medium and replace it with new medium (it is easy to do because the cells "stick" to the bottom of the Petri dish".  The "old" media, contains what remains of the nutrients and growth factors (usually in the form of fetal horse serum or similar)  supplied to the cells so that they will grow and multiply. It also contains whatever the cells excreted.

I am all for recycling but I don't like that what used to be rubbish (we added Clorox and disposed of the old medium) is now sold to women as a beauty treatment.

For skin brightening, you need to inhibit the synthesis of melanin and other processes that end in the accumulation of pigment in the skin (see our skin brightening cream). There is nothing in that used medium that could help with hyperpigmentation. Or with anything. If you want skin nutrition, get it in a "nice" form, like sea kelp, epidermal growth factor, stuff that you know where is coming from.

I assume that the medium is filtered to remove viruses, bacteria, etc. This makes it safer but not less "icky".
