The [Link Removed] family of skin lightening products includes Lustra (Canada and USA), Lustra AF (Canada and USA) and Lustra Ultra (USA only). Which is right for you?

Available over the counter in Canada (no prescription required), [Link Removed]. This combination helps to remove existing skin pigmentation and stop the development of new pigmentation.

Lustra Ultra contains the added benefit of retinol. [Link Removed]provides similar action to glycolic acid in helping to remove existing pigmentation. It also helps to stimulate the development of new and healthier skin cells.

Like Lustra AF, Lustra Ultra contains a sunscreen. The use of a sunscreen is a must when attempting to manage skin pigmentation disorders. You can achieve similar results to Lustra Ultra by adding Green Cream to your Lustra or Lustra AF regimen. [Link Removed] is a high potency retinol cream. The benefit of using two products is that it gives you the flexibility of opting out of using one product should your skin become too sensitive. The combination of retinol, hydroquinone and glycolic acid, while effective, may be harsh and irritating to some skin types.
