    I'm looking for the product Meladerm from Civant skincare which is based in the U.S. Are there any outlets for this product in South Africa?

    I went on their website and they say they ship worlwide
    " We Ship Worldwide! If your country is not listed in our
    online checkout, please use the mail order form."
    So this may include South Africa.
    Shipping may be pricey but got to deal with it (I live in france and I have the same problem).
    Good luck and tell us about your progress!

    I purchased mine directly through the Website with my C/C. I live in Cape Town. Everything is going smoothly, 2 days after placing the order I received my tracking number. They also give you the link to track your own parcel. No problems.

    Good Luck

    It's a great product

    How did you find this product? It did absloutley nothing for me and I know others have had the same experience. As far as I could tell, it was a very good moisturiser, but just did not fulfil what it promised.

    I am extremely dark skinned from the caribbean , I have always been searching for ways to brighten up my face and skin since I was made almost black from the sun , I used everything including buying lighter powders and I ve always read these forums to see if anyone would have any luck finding a cream that worked . Anyway long story made short I just order 2 weeks ago Meladerm and guess what I itched in my face for the first 2 to 3 days and I start to see lightening on my chin yea I couldn't believe it, finally a cream that start to lighten my black skin lol
    Anyway today its exactly 2 weeks since I started and over the last 2 days I noticed a few changes in my face but thought I was not seeing right
    But yeah today amazing results my face actually lightened up.

    So sad maybe some people want faster results but meladerm seems to be extremely true to their word of helping people like me
    I will continue to use and update on my progress, and the good thing why I got this product is because I couldn't find any negative reviews that it damaged anyone so I'm feeling extremely pleased

    Your are right, I am looking for a person/friend who want to use Mono or Alhpa Arbutin. I live in Pakistan so like India I can easily find and get these chemicals easily here.

    But again need a friend(s) to start a journey with, to skin lighting to 3-4 shades. Here in India and Pakistan, people are crazy about milky skins even my husband very found of milky skin. I do have white color but its my legs arms hands feet not face. I have tanned a lot.

    HQ is very temporary. You get your freckles, pigmentation back 1 or 2 months after stopping using it.

    One want to depig. Stop/reduce melanin or melanocytes to produce, in the body. I am using Apple Cider Vinegar with Honey it has worked for me.

    One want to Depig inside out. I have oily skin and clean my face every after 3 hrs no matter want with water and moister it. It has helped

    Again need to shade 3-4 shades permanently for my husband and myself.

    Anyone want to start a journey reply REMOVED

    Islandchic,

    I used meladerm for far longer than 2 weeks with absolutely NO results. I am not alone in this outcome either. That is why it is not a product that is often brought up. If it is working for you, then all good, but it does not live up to it's claims, in my experience.

    I have used Meladern before and also give up on it a year ago then I started using another cream that did nothing , so I started using Meladerm just 2 weeks now and its indeed a great surprise that it is working. I understand it may not work for everyone but , you have to give it time
    I like the new tone I have and I will coninue to use until I get the ultimate goal. I was wandering if anyone has gotten extremely light from it as I only want to achieve a tan look .

    The word is "you", not "u".

    Seriously, I'm really sick of the text/chat speak.

    Type it out.

    Timzo,


    Have you tried emailing the company to find out the availabilty of it in your area ? Short of that, you may have to purchase on line from the meladerm website.

    I still say that this product was basically a very good moisturiser but did not give the results they claim are possible.

    Oh and just to add Timzo, the jar was fairly small, so okay for small areas like the face.
