Glutathione for African Skin.

Glutathione for African Skin.
Hi Beauties, 
One of the most common questions that I get is about skin whitening with glutathione, especially for Dark skin types like African or Indian. I would like to share this short e-mail from our client in France:

Good morning, I am a black person who live in France and I would like to undergo a full body whitening treatment. I learned a lot of informations about Gluthation and i think that it can help me. Indeed, I would like to get a lighter skin complexion. What kind of your products should i get if i want to be SAFELY more lighter ? There are so Many products and i don't know which one to choose ! How Many Times a week must I do these injections ? Is it in IV or IM ? Can i do the vials by myself ? When could I see a real result ? Best regards Segolene 

Dear Segolene
How are you? It is nice to hear from you.
We do have excellent products for whitening African skin. 
There are some things you should know, it is safe and it is effective for most people but it is not permanent and it takes months to get good results.
Glutathione inhibits the body's production of glutathione, gradually leading to fairer skin. It is a natural supplement and has many positive effects on health in addition to the skin benefits. It works best when done for an extended period and is dose dependent. Also it works best when used with topical whitening soap and lotion.
Glutathione should be administered daily by oral method or every 3 to 4 days by IV or IM. It can also be done sublingually if you don't have a nurse/doctor to administer the injection.
I hope this is helpful.

Am now using the relumins soap,toner and relumins 1400 which am taking via sublingual and am on my 5th bottle now and I haven't seen any changes in my skin yet even when am using a body cream wihich contains hydroquinone..It might be too early for me to see any changes now but I will give it time and I will come back with a full detailed review soon. Many thanks
Date 8/13/2014
Hello dear, Result times vary from person to person depending on how Glutathione reacts in their system. However, many of our customers start to see results from the vials after the first month of continuous use. I recommend keep using the soap/toner twice a day, that will definitely help with your results. But please be careful with hydroquinone. Excess use of that ingredient can cause your skin permanent damage with dark/black spots. Thank you, Suzzy

Greetings: I am interested in purchasing the Glutathione as a supplement (orally), I am an African-American, and wish to lighten my skin. What lightening creams and soaps should I use, in conjunction with the oral supplement. And how often should I take the supplement? (I have tried other products for lightening, and did not receive desired results). I would like to place an order. How long does it take to ship?
Date 9/6/2014
Hi Kathy Great question. The Glutathione is a melanin inhibitor so it lightens gradually. Certain soaps, creams & lotions work by breaking down the melanin already present in the skin so the will make the capsules work better. Kojic Acid, Claire Blanche, and Licorice are some of the ingredients you should look for. We have a good selection just select products that match your skin type  Domestic orders usually take 2 to 3 days. Thanks Suzzy

Hi I have a dark Indian skin which has been exposed to sun tan as well. Also oily skin. Can you suggest which whitening cream would suit my skin type and how long would it take generally to see a difference in the skin tone?
Date 2/26/2015
Hi Archie, It's very nice to hear from you. We have many great creams to choose from. For oily skin, I would recommend the Relumins TA Stem Cell Intensive Repair Serum. It has a non-comedogenic formula, so it will not clog pores. It penetrates deep to help lighten & brighten your skin quickly. It also has the TA Stem Cell extract that help repair dry, damaged skin for younger, firmer skin: Because the products are made of all safe and natural ingredients, it hard to determine how long it will take to see results. But if you use the serum along with a good whitening soap, you should start seeing a different within the first month. Thank you, Suzzy

Hello, I am a Nigerian woman interested in glutathione injections. I prefer a nurse administering the injections IV. Is it IV drips or just I.V? Does the injections come with instructions on how to administer? How long will it take to see results? Thanks.

Hello Funke,
Any Glutathione IV can be used in either Push or Drip method. The decision to give any dosage of glutathione IV by Drip or Push method rests with the certified practitioner administrating the treatment, but most decide based on volume. The Glutathione IV most commonly used in Drip method is the Relumins Advanced Glutathione 3500mg.

The first 2 months of Glutathione uptake is crucial as this is the time when Glutathione reserves will build up in the body. It takes an average of 1-2 months before you see any noticeable result as skin lightening will only begin once the bodies Glutathione levels have reached a sufficient amount. You will however start to notice an improvement in your hair, skin and nails after a few weeks. Your skin will develop a radiant glow and the pores start to look more refined giving you a smoother appearance. Thereafter the skin begins to gradually lighten.

Date 7/8/2018
Which is the highest grade of glutathione you can recommend for someone with uneven skin tone(it dark knuckles and feet)?

Hello Funke,

For optimal results, we always recommend using a good lightening soap and cream along with a Glutathione supplement. The Glutathione Supplement will help lighten your skin from the inside by inhibiting the melanin production in your body while the soap & lotion will help lighten your skin from the outside by breaking down the already pigmented skin to reveal – lighter, brighter, healthier skin.

The Glutathione Supplement I would recommend would be the Relumins Advance White Oral Whitening Formula Capsules. It is one of our best selling, customer favorite, and best reviewed Glutathione capsules and contains 800mg of Glutathione per serving.


Trying it for 4 months now and it is working. Notice my skin gets lighter and smoother. It takes a month or more to see the result. Highly recommended.

While the Relumins Advance White Oral Whitening Formula will work for overall lightening, we recommend adding a topical treatment made specifically for the thicker skin around the knees, knuckles, hands, elbows, and underarms. We would recommend the Professional Strength Underarm Whitening Set, which will work just as effectively on hands and feet as it does on underarms. This set will lighten, fade hyperpigmentation, and even skin tone on these hard to whiten areas.


It's been 2 weeks of using the cream system and I already see a difference. My arms are a little darker underneath, being African-American, so I will continue to use it for a while, until my desired results. I had no irritation.

I would like like glutathion injections will i be able to use alone are there instructions? how much and how do i order im in Lesotho..and how lonf does it take to deliver? Will my dark knuckes fade away? Im really desperate

Hello Dear,

Our Glutathione IV products can be found directly on the link below:

We do not supply instructions for Glutathione IV products because we do not advocate self-administration. Placing an IV line is a job for a nurse or certified clinician. However, if your medical professional has any instruction question, please have them contact us directly.

You can order to Lesotho directly from the Flawless Beauty and Skin website. We have several fast and affordable shipping options that can be easily calculated by following the instructions on the link below:

Shipping rates vary depending on the weight and dimensions of the order, as well as the shipment method selected. Standard international shipping via local post would take approximately 3-4 weeks, while FedEx options typically arrive in 1 week.

Glutathione works by inhibiting melanin production in the skin, therefore causing your complexion to gradually lighten. While Glutathione IV will lighten your overall skin tone and held fade hyperpigmentation around the knuckles, we do recommend adding topical treatments such a soap and lotion for optimal results. The soap and lotion will work to break down the hyperpigmentation from the surface of the skin and help prevent new pigment from forming.

For hard to whiten areas with thicker skin such as hands, knuckles, kness, elbows, underarms, and intimate areas, I would recommend the Premium Maximum Brightening/Peeling Soap and the Hollywood Style Deep Penetrating Whitening Lotion. The Glutathione Supplement will help lighten your skin from the inside by inhibiting the melanin production in your body while the soap & lotion will help lighten your skin from the outside by breaking down the already pigmented skin to reveal – lighter, brighter, healthier skin. I’ve included the product links below, please review them for all product information, to read customer reviews, and order directly.

Hello. Is glutathione injection for skin whitening taken forever to maintain complexion or discontinued for a certain period ie can one inject several ml for a certain period and the effect last for a year or so period before the injection is taken again?

Hello Ody,
Skin lightening is a process that takes time, patience, and consistency. Once you reach your desired skin tone from glutathione IV, we do recommend switching from a skin lightening protocol to a maintenance protocol – which would include taking glutathione injections less often or moving to capsules.

If you stop using the product all together, your skin will gradually return to its natural state. Think of it like exercise, it is not permanent but has long-lasting benefits.

If you reach your desired skin tone and take a year-long break, the skin lightening process would need to begin all over again to raise glutathione levels enough to inhibit melanin.

Hi, I have just bought the glutathione 3500 mg full set with vitamin c and glutathione booster.I am bit confused using do I use it and how i store the remaining concoction of glutathione and vitamin c.Also,is it safe to use while lactating. Is 3500 mg too much to be used?

Hello Nim,

All of our products are made with natural active ingredients and have no health warnings or dangerous side effects, however we strongly recommend that pregnant and nursing mothers speak with their Ob/Gyn or Pediatrician before using any skin care or nutritional supplement.

The item can be used in 3 ways – IV (intravenously), IM (intramuscularly in the buttocks), or sublingually (orally). We do not advocate self-adminstration, as placing an IV line is a job for a nurse, medical practitioner, or certified clinician. If you require IV or IM instructions, please have your doctor contact us.

However, we do have a Youtube video that clearly shows the instructions for sublingual administration. Please see the link below:

Once the product is opened and Vitamin C solution has been mixed with the glutathione, it is best refrigerated to ensure longevity.
