SkinBright vs. Meladerm: Which is the Better Skin Lightener

Are you looking for a product that lightens your skin without causing irritation?

SkinBright and Meladerm ate two of the top products on the market today, but determining which one is best may be difficult.

Throughout the next few paragraphs, we’re going to take a look at them both and help you decide.

SkinBright and Meladerm are both topical skin lighteners designed to decrease or completely eliminate the appearance of age, liver, and sun spots, melesma and cloasma, freckles, acne marks, old scars, birthmarks and hyperpigmentation.

Both products have been successful in lightening overall skin tone, and both are made for use by people of all races.

What’s In Them?

SkinBright and Meladerm have similar features and ingredients. Both products use alpha arbutin, kojic acid and lemon juice extract, all of which are commonly used to lighten skin pigmentation. Neither product uses previously popular but extremely harmful chemicals such as hydroquinone, mercury, or paraben.

Which One Works Faster?

Both products require 2-3 months to show efficacy, with positive results in as little as one or two weeks. A full course of use does not extend beyond 6 months. Also, another great thing about both of these lighteners is that neither product is tested on animals.

Users rave about both SkinBright and Meladerm. Both products have been incredibly useful in lightening or eliminating unsightly and embarrassing discoloration which had made the lives of some users previously painful, depressing, and, in some cases, despondent.


Meladerm seems to be slightly less effective than SkinBright on lightening the effect of old but severe scaring. SkinBright seems to be more effective with the specifically epidermal pigmentation issues rather than with the full spectrum of hyper-pigmentation conditions.

Having been part of the recent pioneering effort to discover a safe, natural skin lightening product, Meladerm is certainly the leader in the industry at this point. Prior to its initial release in 2004, Meladerm underwent three years of extensive research.


Though both products are hypoallergenic, a very small percentage of the population can still have an allergic reaction to the product. As a matter of fact, this is about the only source of negative feedback for either product.

Both SkinBright and Meladerm oxidize when exposed to air and lose efficacy when exposed to light which explains why both products are packaged in air-tight dispensers. However, both products also lose efficacy when exposed to light, but only Meladerm comes in a light-proof container.

Final Word

SkinBright and Meladerm are both excellent, healthy products that reduce, and in some cases completely eliminate, skin discoloration due to hyper-pigmentation. Barring a chance allergic reaction to one or the other, Meladerm seems to have a slight edge because of the light-proof packaging and the fact that their 30-day return guarantee doesn’t include a hidden re-stocking fee like SkinBright’s does.

    I had good success with Skinbright, while Meladerm did nothing for me. Everyone’s skin is different but that was my experience.

    The restocking fee is not really hidden. It is explained clearly on the website. All you need to do is click on the refunds area and look.
