Side Effects of Meladerm Cream

Pin It

Are there any side effects associated with Meladerm Cream?

Meladerm Side EffectsDuring the early part of 1999, Civant Skin Care began its plan of developing a safe and effective, yet, powerful skin lightening product. Before it was launched, this product was tested numerous times to make sure that it was perfectly safe for regular use.

The formula that was developed for this product was designed to be used by all skin types.

However, some people do have extremely sensitive skin and certain skin care products can cause a dermatitis type reaction. This is either an irritant contact dermatitis where the product damages the skin or an allergic contact dermatitis which has to do with the immune system. This type of reaction might involve a redness or swelling of the skin.

Meladerm Side Effects Are Minimal

Whilst most people report no side effects from using Meladerm Cream some of the possible side effects of Meladerm include:

• Mild skin irritation

• Increased risk of sun damage

• Minor skin cracking (temporary)

If you do experience any skin irritation it is recommended that you stop using Meladerm. Since Meladerm is also a known to have exfoliating powers, it is necessary for you to use a sun block at all times. Using a sunscreen that is friendly to your skin type will decrease the risk of sun damage while using this treatment.

There is also a possibility that in the first three to five days after application of the product, minor cracks will appear on your skin but this is usually temporary and not reported by many users.

The Natural Ingredients of Meladerm Skin Lightener

Meladerm is considered as a natural product because its ingredients are derived principally from plants along with other organic compounds that  have been shown to promote healthy skin.

Intensive research was undertaken to find the best combination of these ingredients and Meladerm is free from harmful ingredients such as mercury, parabens, steroids and hydroquinone – substances that are known to be toxic to the body.

To alleviate any doubt from the users, the company has publicised a full list of the ingredients used in making the product. The main components are listed below in a little more detail so you can be reassured that they are natural compounds:

Bearberry (Arctostaphulos uvaursi)

  • Bearberry extract (Arbutin) – This edible red berry is a favorite food of bears and has long been used in herbal medicine. Bearberry contains something called arbutin, which is a natural skin brightener and a natural alternative to synthetic hydroquinone.
  • Alpha Arbutin – Meladerm also uses a biosynthetic form of arbutin. Although it is a very expensive ingredient to manufacture, even at very low concentrations, a-arbutin has shown to be extremely effective in inhibiting the formation of melanin. A one-month study on 80 Chinese women, using a 1% alpha arbutin concentration, resulted in a “skin lightening effect”. It was faster and more effective than kojic acid and it left hydroquinone in the shade.
  • Tego Cosmo C 250 – is a natural amino acid that helps to regulate cell growth and control PH  levels of the skin. It has also been shown to inhibit the tyrosine enzyme that is associated with melanin production
  • Gigawhite, – is a plant extract which also serves as a preservative-free skin whitener.
  • Kojic Acid – is a natural alternative for hydroquinone that works as an age spot inhibitor.
  • Other ingredients include: Licorice extract, Niacinamide or B23, Mulberry Extract, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Lemon Juice Extract, Emblica extract, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Rice Bran Protein, Soybean Protein and Ceramide 2 (for anti-ageing).

A Reminder for Users

Since there are different types of skin tones, keep in mind that certain skin types may react differently to the usage of Meladerm.

When using new skin care products, there is often an after effect that you will feel right after using the product for the first time. So it is important to note that there is a possibility of skin irritation occuring during the first application of the product but this should only be a mild instance.

If you do suffer ongoing or severe skin irritation stop using Meladerm immediately.

Because of the natural ingredients in  Meladerm, it is unlikely  a user will suffer any major side effects with continuous product usage. Meladerm has been proven to be a safe and effective skin lightener, with a loyal band of satisfied customers, which is why the product continues to thrive in the market today.

  2. Hi Angela,
    Thanks for the article. Very helpful! I have read on the Meladerm website that the product is not recommended for pregnant ladies. Is that true ? I am a married lady and planning to have a baby(not pregnant at present but planning to) . Please suggest can I use Meladerm. Since I am suffering from hyper pigmentation, I really want to use this product but don’t want to take any risk. Kindly suggest and reply ASAP.

      Yes it is true, the makers of Meladerm suggest you do not use this product if you are pregnant or nursing. In the meantime it would probably be okay to use 🙂

    • Hi Priscilla
      The manufacturer, Civant Skin Care, recommend applying their products as an even layer over the affected area of your skin only, rubbing the cream into the skin until it has absorbed entirely. You can find more questions and information at Civant Skin Care (look under the “Learn Now” tab to see more FAQ’s). They also offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with the results.

      A good sunscreen should not react with Meladerm. Be aware that not all sunscreens block the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. These rays are different. The UVA rays are responsible for the tanning and ageing of our skin while the UVB rays cause sunburn and are responsible for most skin cancers. When choosing a sunscreen, look for ingredients like Avobenzone (or trade name Parsol 1789) at least 3%, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, or Mexoryl-Sx. Choose a higher SPF to get maximum protection. Neutrogena make a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 70 that blocks both rays.

        • HI. Meladerm does not contain any steroids or hydroquinine which can cause skin to darken if used over a long period of time. It is suitable for people with darker skins tones including African/American or ethnic groups. If your skin tone is very dark it may take longer to see results. Most people see results in 2-3 months. Also Civant skin care company offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not happy with the initial results.

  6. Hi Angela
    I used meladerm couple of years back on my face as I was suffering from hyper pigmentation and I must say I saw a significant difference on my face. Pigmentation had reduced to some extent but due to financial crisis I could’nt buy it again and had to discontinue. After that my face became darker. I guess it was due to the discontinuation of the cream. Also i did not apply sunscreen which furthur worsen pigmentation.
    Now I again want to try meladerm but I am scared that it will again make me dark after I stop using it in future. I am extremely confused that should I go for it or not. Please suggest as I want to get of my hyper pigmentation on my face. Please reply at the earliest.
    Thanks

    • Some people need to continue using Meladerm from time to time after the desired result is reached. Meladerm reduces melanin production in the skin which normally protects us from the suns UV rays. It’s recommended that you use a high SPF sun block while using Meladerm for this reason. I would suggest that you could try using this product again but you need to follow their recommendations.

    Reply
    • If you are using Meladerm you should use a sun block if you are going outdoors. Choose one with a high SPF. Meladerm can be used until the desired result is achieved. If your hyperpigmentation is deep rooted you might need to continue small applications of the cream from time to time.

    • Uisng Meladerm the results will usually be permanent if the hyperpigmentation is in the upper skin layer. If the hyperpigmentation is deeper down you might need to use it again from time to time to maintain the effects. Also you should limit sun exposure and use a high SPF sun screen.

    • I would suggest trying a skin whitening cream like Meladerm. It is suitable for use on all parts of the body.
      You can also search for recipes using natural ingredients. One recipe that helps exfoliate and whiten skin on the neck is to mix lemon juice with a little salt and rub this into your neck. Leave it for 2-3 minutes and rinse it off with warm water.

    • Skin Lite contains hydroquinine which may cause problems in some people over time. I’m not sure if that is the cause of your issues but you could try Meladerm. It contains all natural ingredients and no hydroquinine. It is suitable for all skin types unless you have super sensitive skin. You should test it with a small patch on your arm or neck first over 3 days if unsure.

After that you can apply your regular moisturiser, sun screen and make up.

    • Hi Sancthus. This cream is designed to lighten the skin if that’s what you are hoping to achieve. It has all natural ingredients so it should be fine to use without side effects. However, just remember you need to wear a good sun screen while you are using this product because it inhibits melanin production and your skin will be more sensitive to the UV rays.

    • Hi Ian. Meladerm can be used on all parts of the body to lighten the skin. You will need to avoid excessive sun exposure and use a high SPF sun block when you go outdoors. I don’t believe it will change the colour of your veins.

  16. I started using meladerm 3 weeks ago. It was fine up to now. I feel like a burning sensation on my skin and itch. I am using perfumed exfoliater. I don’t know what is causing my skin to burn and itch. I have got hyperpigmentation. Thank you.

    Reply
    • Civant skin care advise there is a small chance that your skin may be allergic or hypersensitive to ingredients in their product. It is normal to experience some redness in the first few days of using the product but if your skin is extremely sensitive it may react to the new product. If you are using other products with Meladerm then maybe this could cause your skin to burn or itch also.

  19. Dear Angela Clare,

    I have read most of the comments here but my query is little indifferent than them, so i thought of writing you to find the exact answers of my concerns.
    Currently, I am using La roche Posay Pigment Clar serum,for my discoloration issue.My face and neck has serious discoloration issues and the rest of my body color is relatively fair. In fact, there is a difference of intensity of darkness even within these discolored areas like my my neck i.e my jaw line,mouth area, the collar bone line of my neck, and sides of neck,are more darker than rest of the hyper-pigmentation face patches.

    La roche is Helping me with it but the results are pretty slow and almost to nothing on neck however i do see different on my face, but again its much slower than my expectations.I am not in a favor of using any steroid based products on my face therefore i did my required research on meladerm and there’s no serious harm that i could see in using it.

    I am pretty positive about the cream now but here are a few questions i wanna address before i lean to it for my concerns.

    1) Can I incorporate it in my skin regimen which includes a lot of other products, as in I do layering of anti-aging products including(Drunk elephant’s glycolic acid 12% nightserum/exfoliant and Vitamin C 12%glcolic day serum , Essential Oils blend including (rose-hip,lemon,geranium,carrot seed,sandalwood,lavender) and Josie maran ‘Argan Oil’ as my last step.

    Firstly, can meladerm be used along with these anti-aging products ? or as a last step to my current skin regimen on the top of oils?
    ( I wrote names of brands, so that as a specialist, u may want to kust skip through through their formulas/ingredients for avoiding any future problems).

    2.Secondly, if the first query gets the green flag that it goes in coherence with other skin products from other brands, than how long can I Use meladern in one go ?
    Can i use it as a permanent part of my skin care for years or couple of months, for maintaining its results permanently without any side effects? or it should be discontinued after a few months use(kindly state number of months as well)to be reincorporated after some gap.

    3.Can i apply it on my dark circles too? on the top of my eye cream?

    I know i wrote quite some long here, but these are a few reasons that i still haven’t ordered it coz my skin is sensitive to hydroquine products and i didn’t want to take any risk with this one either.

    Your reply is much awaited and help me choose best for my skin.

    Warm regards,
    mona

    • Hi Mona
      You can use Meladerm with other skin products. Civant skin care advise applying Meladerm first over the areas you wish to lighten. They suggest washing the skin first to improve the effectiveness of the product. Other products such as moisturisers, makeup and sun screen can be used after Meladerm has been applied. Generally it is used until the desired result is achieved. It can be reapplied later if you have a stubborn area of hyperpigmentation to maintain good results. Civant skin care make an eye complex cream that is suitable for treating dark circles. They also have a number of complementary products for skin care. When you click through to the special offer you will find other helpful information on their website including a Contact Us section if you have more specific questions.

  21. Afternoon,

    I am very keen to use your product, however I have a few questions.

    I am of Indian (Asian) decent, and a few years ago I was having Lazer hair removal on my face, and was burnt over a period of time on my cheeks on both sides of my face.

    I have used a number of different products and some have worked (e.g,. Jan Marini) however they have all been peel based.
    What I would like to know is, is this product suitable for my skin type being Brown, and will it help with the hyperpigmentation on my cheeks?

    I would also like to lighten my skin on my face as a result of a sun kissed face, would this product help me achieve my desired results?

    I look forward to hear from you soon.

    • Hi Monica. I believe that Meladerm would be suitable for treating your hyperpigmentation. Itcan also be used to lighten the skin. Meladerm is all natural and suitable for all skin types. It is suitable for darker skin tones although it may take a little longer to see results. Civant skin care suggest testing Melderm for allergic reactions by putting a small amount on your neck or arm prior to using it on the face. They also offer a money back guarantee if you decide the product is not for you.

My skin is really sensitive and dry, after 5 minutes of ducray application I can feel itchiness on my skin. Please advise if meladerm is a harsh cream and I can use it the next day I get it(and discontinue ducray melascreen) or I need to wait for a week.

    Apart from that, I noticed a very slight wrinkle on my forehead might be due to my dry/sensitive skin or due to cream reaction making it dry, I hope this cream will not deepen that wrinkle and kindly inform from I can purchase it safely online.

    • Hi Sarita. It is normal to see some redness when you first use Meladrem but if it is making your skin red or swollen all the time I wouldn’t continue using it. You could try some natural masks that you make yourself at home maybe? There are many skin lightening recipes online. Otherwise consult a dermatologist to see if they can suggest another method.

    Reply
    • Hi Deepali. You can use Meladerm until you achieve the desired result. Your skin will not become darker after using Meladerm, however you must use a good sunscreen as your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. I would recommend SPF 100 if you can get one. Some people apply the cream at regular intervals to maintain the result.

    • Hi Shawn. Meladerm is formulated to lighten the overall complexion of the skin by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation associated with sun damage. Over a few months your skin will gradually appear more brighter. Some people continue to use Meladerm from time to time to maintain their desired skin tone. As with amy skin care product you should consult a medical professional if you are planning to use this lon term. You should also use a good quality sunscreen while using Meladerm.

    • Hi Moushumi. Most people will see noticeable results with Meladerm in 2-4 weeks and achieve good results in 2-3 months. If you want to use any skin care product long term you should always consult a medical professional.

    • Hi Kiran. Most people see results with this product in 2-4 weeks although the best results are seen after 2-3 months. Some people stop using the product then but they might use it again to maintain results. It can be applied in general areas of hyperpigmentation. It does not need to be applied directly to spots. You can refrigerate the product for long term storage (up to 1 year). A detailed instruction book comes with the product.

    • Hi Mahabuba. Meladerm is made from natural ingredients such as Mulberry, Licorice and Bearberry plants. It does not include any hydroquinone, steroids or mercury or steroids in our products. The plant extracts are filtered and sterilized however, long term use of any skin products should always be checked by a dermatologist or medical professional. It is recommended that you also use a high SPF sunscreen. Civant skin care recommend that pregnant or nursing mothers wait until they finish nursing to use the product as the safety during this time has not been established. It can be ordered online from Civant Skincare and they ship to most countries in the world.

  36. I was using Meladerm for last few months but not on a continuous basic, may be 2 times a weeks or so. I didn’t have any problem but just a couple of days back I used it as usual at night before going to sleep but when I woke in the morning I had severe dry skin and rashes all over my face , So I started to wonder , what happened ? I started retrospect on my skin condition from past few days , I had noticed that my skin had become really dry to the winter beginning and also central heating was making it even more dry .
    My question is, has Meladerm reacted to this heating during night and created this heavy rashes on my skin ? I don’t have food allergies too.

    please help me out here. I have severe dryness with itchy rashes.

    • Hi Rashmi. Most skin types can tolerate Meladerm but everyone is different and some people may be sensitive to it’s ingredients. If you think it is causing skin rashes maybe stop using it and see if the condition improves.

    I used cosmolite cream before it gives good results later when i stop using that my skin becomes more darken. My query is the same if i stop apply Meladerm whether my skin get darker or not

    Reply
    • Hi Anju. I believe Cosmolite contains steroids so it might be best not to use it if it is having this side effect. Make sure you are also using a good sunscreen. Melderm does not contain any steroids and is formulated from all natural ingredients. You should not get any side effects from it but everyone’s skin is different. Civant Skincare offer a 30 day money back guarantee is you are not satisfied with the product. You can also consult a dermatologist about this problem if you are having concerns.

    • A 1.7oz bottle has about 50 x 1ml pumps of product. If you are treating the whole face the manufacturers recommend just 1/2 pump per application. If you are applying Meladerm twice a day the 1.7oz bottle should last about 7 weeks. If you are treating smaller areas it should last longer.

  43. Hi. I have few questions and I would truly appreciate suggestions /advice. By the way I’m matured woman with dehydrated and dry skin. I have read a lot of different articles regarding proper way of layering skincare. All articles said the same thing: (toner) watery texture first, followed by light essence, then semi viscous texture like serum, creamy moisturizer, facial oil and lastly mineral sunscreen.

    So is this correct sequence with Maldema….Cleanse, Toner, watery Skincare Booster, watery SkinCeutical CE Ferulic essense, semi viscous SkinCeutical HA Intensifier, SkinCeutical Resveratrol BE, MALDERMA cream, Eye cream, Moisturizer containing Ceramide, Neck Firming Peptide cream, Facial oil and lastly my Sunscreen?

    Night: Double cleanse, Alternate days OTC Retinol, 1/2 weekly AHA Peel. Then half hour later followed by skincare sequence as above w/o SPF? For night routine I skip Vit C because I use night creme that contain Niacinamide. Plus twice weekly targeted wash off mask.

    Reply
    • Hi Karyn. I am not familiar with all of the products in your routine but Civant skin care suggest washing your skin before applying Meladerm to improve the effectiveness of the product. In your case you could cleanse and tone first. You should then apply an even layer of Meladerm, rubbing it into the skin until it is absorbed. Leave for a few minutes and avoid washing skin again until later. You can then apply your moisturiser, sun screen and makeup. Meladerm can be used twice a day, morning and night if desired.

      Reply
    • Hi Mannat. Yes you can still remove facial hair when using Meladerm. The Meladerm can be applied after you have washed your face and left to absorb into the skin.

    • Hi Neha. This product contains all natural ingredients and is safe to use. You can test a little of the product first to make sure your skin is not over sensitive to it. It may take a little longer to see results if your skin is a darker shade.Meladerm is purchased online from the Civant Skin Care company. The cost for shipping Meladerm to Nepal appears to be $19.99 USD for USPS First Class Mail (2-6 weeks). This is the cheaper option. Or $39.99 USD for USPS Priority International Mail (5-10 days).

    • Hi Anika. Yes you can use Meladerm. It contains all natural ingredients that lighten the skin. You should see results in 2-4 weeks.

This will depend on your skin tone and the amount of sun exposure your skin gets.

    • Hi Huma. Most people see results in 2-4 weeks of using this product with full results after 2-3 months. Some people report that it took a little longer, up to 5 months, and they recommend being patient! It depends on your skin type and the amount of sun exposure you receive daily. It is recommended to use a quality sun screen as you skin will be more sensitive while using Meladerm. If you are not happy with the result they do offer a money back guarantee

    • Hi Huma. I am not qualified to give advise on hair removal but I do know some dermatologists will suggest their patients use a cream like Meladerm if they want to avoid hydroquinine. They suggest using Meladerm for one to two weeks before laser treatment, then stop for several days before the Fraxel restore. It is suggested that you can resume using Meladerm a week later. As always you should consult with your medical professional or dermatologist about this processs.

Some people continue to use Meladerm from time to time to maintain the result. It just depends on you skin tone or what condition you would like to treat. You must limit sun exposure and use a good quality sunscreem while you are using this product to help maintain results also.

    Thanks for your help in advance 🙂

    • Hi Laila. Meladerm can be used on the face and all over the body so I believe it would be okay to use this product on your lips. You will need to use a good quality sunscreen with Meladerm as this product can make your skin more photo sensitive. You could also contact the manufacturer at Civant Skin Care (via their website online) to check with them about using it on your lips.

    • Hi. Meladerm is formulated from all natural ingredients so it should be fine to use this product with rosehip oil. If your skin is very sensitive you might want to test it on a small patch to start with. Some people find there is a slight redness of the skin when using Meladerm for the first time. There are no known side effects of using Meladerm cream. It is usually fine for most skin types but sometimes people have very sensitive skin so it is best to test a small area first. The Civant Skincare company do offer a money back guarantee if you are not happy with the product.

Of course results will depend on their skin tone and color. The Civant skincare company do offer a money back guarantee for 30 days if you are not satisfied with the result.

    Reply
    • Hi Llih. I am not familiar with Carolite cream but when I looked it up I see that is does contain 2% hydroquinine.

      WebMD.com reports that hydroquinine can cause the following side effects: “Mild burning, stinging, redness, and dryness can occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly…if unlikely but serious side effects occur: blistering, skin cracking, blue-black darkening of the skin”

      Serious side effects are rare but they advise seeking medical assistance if you have an allergic reaction to hydroquinine.

      Meladerm is an all natural whitening cream so it does not contain hydroquinine. It is available to purchase online and they do ship to most countries around the world.

    • Hi Harfarwanish. The maunfacturers say that Meladerm can cause some redness in the first week or so which will gradually clear up. I don’t think the spots should be getting darker though? If you have any concerns about this I would contact Civant Skin Care. You can also receive your money back if you find the product is not suitable for your skin type. Although it is usually suitable for all skin types, some people have very sensitive skin which might react to the product.

    • Hi Michelle. Meladerm does not usually clog your pores. It is suitable for sensitive skin and does not usually feel oily. Some people are ultra sensitive to Meladerm which causes them to experience minor blemishes and/or peeling when they first start using it. You should not see any pimples once your skin adjusts to the product so possibly the sunscreen is causing this.
