How does vitiligo cover work

How does Vitiligo Cover Lotion work?

Vitiligo Cover lotion darkens the white patches of vitiligo to blend beautifully with your pigmented skin.  The key ingredient, DHA (derived from natural sugars), reacts with the cells just below the skins surface that have stopped producing their own melanin, and makes them produce coloring. Then, as your dead skin cells naturally slough off, the color will slowly fade (usually about 1 week). Since the color is derived from your own skin cells, you don’t need to worry about choosing a color to match your skin tone.

Is Vitiligo Cover Lotion safe to use with other vitiligo treatments?

Yes. Vitiligo Cover lotion is safe to use with topical treatment creams and ointments. They can be applied AFTER the 6-8 Vitiligo Cover color development time. I used Vitiligo Cover lotion during my NB-UVB treatments after it was approved for use by my dermatologist.

How long will one 6oz bottle last?

There’s a couple of variables that go into answering this question: where you’re applying it and your height and weight. I am 5’5″ and weigh 125lbs, I use the lotion on my entire body each week and 1 bottle lasts a little over 3 months. However, if you apply it only to your hands and face, the bottle should last for many months.

Is Vitiligo Cover Lotion safe to use on children?

Vitiligo Cover Lotion is safe for any age, but it is recommended that parents apply the lotion to children under the age of 10.

How do i know what color will match my skin tone?

You can’t buy the wrong color. The DHA reacts with your own skin cells to produce the color. If you have a dark complexion, you will want to experiment with layering the lotion until you have the exact color to match your natural skin tone. Detailed instructions do come with your package to help guide you.

What makes Vitiligo Cover Lotion different from over-the-counter products?

Vitiligo Cover Lotion is manufactured by a company that pioneered the original 100% natural, chemical-free sun care products in the early 1990’s and they have set the same exacting standards for all of their skin care products.

Also, Vitiligo Cover Lotion contains 10% DHA, almost twice as much as other products, and because our lotion base is a unique formula which is carefully selected from nature’s most nutrient- and vitamin-rich plants, and minerals, it improves the health, texture, and appearance of your skin.

What is DHA and is it safe to use with vitiligo?

First, I’d like to say that DHA is perfectly safe to use on vitiligo and is highly recommended by doctors, dermatologists, and scientists, as safe and effective means of covering vitiligo white patches. Ask your dermatologist and/or check any of the reputable medical websites for confirmation.

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a simple sugar derived from the sugar cane plant that has been used worldwide in the cosmetics industry for over 30 years. DHA is a colorless sugar that interacts with dead surface cells in the outer skin, staining the skin darker. The effect is temporary, because as the dead cells naturally slough off, the color fades, disappearing within a week unless the lotion has been reapplied. DHA is the only FDA-approved skin-tinting additive. Products containing this chemical don’t photo-age the skin or contribute to skin cancer.

Do I apply the Vitiligo Cover Lotion on the vitiligo white patch only or to the normal skin as well?

I use it all over, and this is what I always recommend; it just helps the blending look so much better. However, you can apply Vitiligo Cover lotion to just the white patches if you’re careful to gently wipe the outer edges so the surrounding pigmented skin remain neutral.
