Did You Know? Bearberry contains the active ingredient Arbutin that is very popular in Japan and other Asian countries for skin de-pigmentation. Arbutin can be used to whiten the skin, to prevent liver spots and freckles, to treat sunburn marks and to regulate melanogenesis. It also protects the skin against damage caused by free radicals.
Bearberry Pigmentation Cream contains between 1 and 5% Arbutin.

A note from our supplier: Pentylene Glycol has a zero listed hazard rating in Cosmetic Data Base and there are 23 published articles which provide interesting data and note studies done back in the 1970’s – in all of these, there was only one case listed of Dermatitis in Belgium and two cases in Cleveland, Ohio, in which the use of a topical cream containing Pentylene Glycol was suspected (not determined) to be the cause of the Dermatitis. www.ewg.org (Skin Deep Data Base) rates Pentylene Glycol as zero hazard. On www.goodguide.com it is listed as having no health concerns and is not on their list of hazardous ingredients. We use Pentylene Glycol only in our creams and lotions, which contain a higher water content and therefore need a proven strong preservative, and we consider it to be the safest and healthiest preservative currently available in the absence of a reliable natural preservative.
80 out of 88 people would recommend this product21/06/2017, By AasiyahBeen using this product for close to two weeks and so far I find it good, great as a moisturiser and does help with Sun damaged skin . However its quite pricey for a small bottle .07/06/2017, By ParveenFeels and smells amazing! would buy again :-) Price is fab and the results are great. Using for almost two weeks and already visible difference. My favourite product!18/05/2017, By NizzyLove this product. Yes its a small tube...but so worth is. Ive been using it for over a month and can definitely see the difference. The pigmentation marks have gone lighter. Also you dont use too much product.04/05/2017, By KarenAbsolutely love the smell and texture of this cream!24/03/2017, By SaraI used the range before and (stupidly) tried other products. Now I am back on Victorian Garden and my skin is so happy! Started using the pigmentation cream about three weeks ago and my friends have already commented that they can see a difference. I am using a derma roller twice a week to aid the process but am already thrilled with the results. (my pigmentation is from sun damage on the side of my face).21/01/2017, By StephI have been using this cream on my acne scars twice per day for 10 days now. I am so pleased to see that they have started fading really nicely. This cream has a lovely smell too and a little bit goes a long way!10/01/2017, By KayI have always had problem skin and Im excited about this cream after reading all the positive reviews. Im very impressed with the service I ordered yesterday and got the product before 10 this morning! Keep it up Faithful to Nature and your customers will be faithful to you!!!04/01/2017, By NatashaI have recently started using this cream as a all over face moisturizer after good report from my aunt. The scent makes me feel so natural and rejuvenated, the price for 20ml has gone up from R69 to R88 so I was a little hesitant to purchase such a small cream however the good news is that 2 pea sized amounts covers my face which is great, as a little goes a long way. I have been using the cream for approx. 1 month and noticed the fading of pimple scarring from my forehead and jawline, my make-up has lessened drastically and I feel more confident. I just hope that the cream stays affordable as one needs to purchase the 20ml at least every month if using on the entire face. I highly recommend this product and can wait to see even better results through continuous use.23/11/2016, By AnaA wonderful product - it has definitely helped fade pigmentation marks on my cheeks and forehead and it generally helps improve condition of skin. Using this together with apple cider vinegar as a toner and colloidal silver soap as a cleanser. Exfoliating with sugar mixed with olive oil and take off makeup with coconut oil. Seeing a big difference. Great not to be using chemicals.18/10/2016, By AlexandraThis pigmentation cream ticks all my boxes. Firstly, its a cruelty-free product, which is essential for me, because Im vegan and totally against harming animals for cosmetic purposes or any reason under the sun. Secondly, it does seem to be reducing my pigmentation and restoring freshness and juiciness to my skin. Thirdly, I LOVE its fresh botanical smell. Will definitely be ordering more14/10/2016, By CynthiaThis cream has cleared my blemishes. I can now afford to leave the house without makeup - has really worked for me. Value for money. I have battled for years looking to clear my spots. Great product.01/10/2016, By JemimaIt does have a nice moisturizing effect on a combination skin, but I did not see any other results. Seeing as there are so many mixed reviews, I think perhaps its important to consider that the Sun plays a major roll in this- in summer time you will notice pigmentation marks a lot more, and approaching winter they will start to diminish. Exfoliating will also make the marks look lighter.22/09/2016, By LeratoI really love this moisturiser. It does work. My blemishes and acne scars are becoming less pronounced. Ive been using this 2x a day for 1 month. Ill def buy this again.15/09/2016, By NarissaI have been using this with the Victorian Garden Rose Hip for about two weeks. Theres definitely a change. Would recommend this combination for people with heavy pigmentation on the neck, underarms and between the legs.
I also use it on my face, and my skin is becoming more even.
I also use the Argan Green Moroccan black soap as a cleanser - so it works for me as a combination.22/08/2016, By SameeraI have been using this cream for just over 2 months. It has somewhat lightened my pigmentation. I love the way it makes my skin feel though, soft and smooth27/07/2016, By NicoletteBeen using this product for 2 weeks now and although it smells lovely I have only seen
little bit of improvement on my pigmentation under my eyes. Worth using though :) leaves your skin feeling healthy!16/07/2016, By CrezeldaI used this cream as per instruction on my burned lip area and I saw it work within three days. I didn even have to finish the whole thing because it worked and Im happy!25/06/2016, By CHARLOTTEI have used this cream for 15 weeks with NO results!15/06/2016, By Joannebeen using this cream now for 2 weeks, its a very pleasant moisturizer but I did not see any improvement with my pigmentation. will give it a few more months.08/06/2016, By PriyaAfter using so many expensive name brands, I came across this cream. It has done wonders for my skin. It leaves it feeling so smooth and moisturised. My scarring has almost disappeared. Totally recommended!31/05/2016, By JoeI have moderate scarring from past acne and Ive used this cream for about two months. There might have been very minor fading of the scars but Im not entirely sure as its not very noticeable.
Im slightly confused as to how there are rave reviews below claiming it to be a miracle cream or something.
Theres a possibility this product might produce better results when used for a very extensive period of time but Im going to be trying other products instead.23/05/2016, By AbigailI love this product. A little does go a long way it seems.19/05/2016, By ShariThis product seems to be working slowly to remove old pigmentation marks and scarring from my face however will have to wait and see after a few months as I am using this together with Esse Repair Oil for faster results.05/05/2016, By PaulaI have been faithfully using this cream morning and evening from start February 2016 till now with zero lightening on my darker patches. My problem is not severe, so I do not expect miracles and I knew any lightening was not going to be drastic, but there was truly no visible improvement. Its a pleasant cream in general, but not an effective lightening cream in my experience.31/03/2016, By MelanieI have some sun marks on my cheeks and forehead; and I am seeing how they are becoming lighter everyday. My skin seems lighter as well.15/03/2016, By ChantalThis has to be my new favourite cream! It has done absolute wonders for my skin, I have just ordered more.08/03/2016, By NicoletteThis is undoubtedly my favorite product. Im never without it. Its perfectly light enough for me yet soooo moisturizing at the same time. I can handle those heavy, thick creams that promise moisture and it feels like my pores are clogged. This is perfect for me.03/03/2016, By InebelleI have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I the pigmentation marks have definitely improved. They are lighter and at this rate will be gone soon! Ordered the bigger bottle, as I want to apply this over my whole face. Something else that I really like about this product is that a little bit of cream goes a long way. It is well worth the price. At under R200 it is a steal for such an effective product!12/02/2016, By MichelleLove this stuff ! In the beginning it smelled funny to me but After a while I started liking it l! It really seems to be working and it hasn even been a month! I use it religiously every morning and night ! Will buy again01/02/2016, By LeighAlthough this has done very little for my pigmentation over time, it does have amazing moisturising and refining properties. I love it and will continue to buy it!13/11/2015, By CherylSo far so good! I am loving this cream and am using it as a moisturiser on my face every other day..I love the feel of this cream, sits great under my foundation and smells lovely too! Dont expect miracles overnight but I have only used this once a day for a while..so far I am quite happy with this little treasure of a cream and am noticing a remarkable improvement in my skins tone and pigmentation. Now one of my absolute favourites! Love this!13/11/2015, By AntheaThis cream is really amazing, in just over a month it helped to clear up and brighten all my pigmentation from my 2 pregnancies and sun damage.11/11/2015, By SindyIve been using this cream for about 2 weeks and was shocked to notice my acne scar blemishes around my jawline completely gone.
Ive started using it all over my face and my sensitive oily skin loves it.
Highly recommended.31/08/2015, By ZeenaGreat product, been using it a while. Older pigmentation marks has faded and skin more even toned. Great value for money.28/08/2015, By CarienIm happy with this product. I not only lightens the dark areas of sun-damage on my skin it also cleared bad acne scars around my chin. My husband is now also using it for sun damaged spots on his legs and arms... Will let you know in a couple of weeks how its working for him ...26/08/2015, By Anna-MarieI bought this for my brother who has bad sun spots. I saw him a couple of weeks after he started using, adding that he forgets to use sometimes, and I saw such a big difference with the dark marks on his skin caused by the sun.
Thank you so much.22/08/2015, By AlisonTried the smaller size and am about to order the larger size as I have no intention of being without it again - the only product that moisturises beautifully and really does what it claims ... lightens the pigmentation marks at the same time.20/08/2015, By Carol AnneThis cream doesn do anything for my pigmentation! It smells lovely, absorbs well, but just doesn give me results. I have used it for months with very little success. Frustrated, I went back to my homeopathic Thuja lotion, which made a noticeable difference within 3 days on my face and around the eyes and my hands. Significant fading can be seen. Thuja lotion is a treatment and should not be used continuously, but with the rapid results one doesn need to. Its also a lot cheaper than the bearberry cream.22/07/2015, By Mrs J SinghI have been using this cream morning and night under my normal creams and even makeup for three months. I have terrible hyper pigmentation scars due to acne, every week I break out causing new scars. Bear berry cream has lightened up my old scars and continues to lighten up the new ones as I use it. It has really made a huge difference to me.20/07/2015, By JenniferI cannot attest to the long-term pigmentation lightening effects of this cream as my skin has remained relatively unchanged after some weeks of use. That said, this is a treat of a moisturiser. My skin laps it up and feels super fresh after use.03/07/2015, By HavaI am using this product 2 weeks now and already I can see the pigmentation marks aregetting lighter. I love the smell and the soft feel it leaves on your skin. Very pleased!18/06/2015, By TyrrahThe product is very concentrated. For full body use, try adding it to your organic body lotion. For face, i add a drop to my organic face moisturiser. It gives skin a radiant glow and gives you so much more than store bought products promise. Try a drop with the victorian garden products. Excellent product.05/06/2015, By JoyceI think it is working. This the 1st time ever anything has worked on my pigmentation but im just worried about the long use of the product....27/05/2015, By HBVI have been conscious about chemicals in my skin care and wanted to avoid them as much as possible. I recently came across VG products,..and ordered them...I was intrigued by this pigmentation cream and wanted to give it a try and I am glad I did..its super smooth and spreads easily...I use it under my VG day moisturizer and it works perfectly....24/04/2015, By BeverleyIve bought this product twice already, and love it. I use it as my daily moisturiser, and am very happy with it. I have noticed an improvement on my skin. Can say Ive noticed an improvement in pigmentation, but overall I am much happier with my skin. Didn cause any breakouts, has a lovely scent, and feels great.16/03/2015, By OratengIve been using VG Bearberry Pigmentation Cream for 2 weeks and I must say, Its an excellent moisturise. I have the worst case of combination and sensitive skin and this cream works wonders for my face. I don see any difference though with the acne marks on my face. Maybe with a bit more patience. I will definitely be buying again.09/03/2015, By EsmeI live close to the equator and the sun has really damaged my skin; sun spots and brown pigmentation on my cheeks, chin, forehead and lips especially. Although this product hasn removed all the pigmentation, it certainly has prevented further damage and given a more even tone to my skin. Whenever I visit SA (and am under a less harsh sun), my pigmentation lightens considerably quickly. A little goes a long way: I apply a half-pea-sized amount twice a day before my moisturisers and I have only used about half the bottle in four months.07/03/2015, By JeanThis is now the only cream I use on my face! Does not make my skin oily and pigmentation is steadily decreasing!05/03/2015, By NancyI bought this for my mom and she loves it. But it made me red and itchy after two weeks.04/03/2015, By DeonaIve been using the cream for one month now. It is moisturising enough to use as a day cream up here in dry Gauteng. An age spot on my hand seems to be fading as I dispense the cream onto the back of my hand before applying to my face. One complaint though; the pump dispenser doesn work to get the bottom third of the cream out. I shall prefer it in a tube or even slightly thicker and in a pot where you can get to every last ml.25/02/2015, By MarcellaI am blown away by your excellent service!!! I placed my order this morning and it was delivered this afternoon! Also, this is my new dream cream, fantastic results!!! I would recommend this to anyone with sun damaged skin!24/02/2015, By DebbieThis is the second packaging comment I am leaving about VG products :( I absolutely love the product but agree with Tanja, the glass pump bottle does not allow you to use it all up. End up losing a fair amount of the product. A tube would be better.19/02/2015, By TanjaI have used this cream for a while and really loved it, but the last time I received it was in the new packaging, a pump bottle rather than a tube you can squeeze. Sadly the pump bottle is not very good a dispensing the cream once you have used the first half of the bottle and for the last third it is down right ineffective without much shaking and banging to attempt to move the cream to the area where the pipe draws from, so my bottle still has a fair amount of cream which I can use...as a result there is too much wastage IMO to make this a cost effective option any more :(03/02/2015, By SumayaThank you so much for super fast delivery and attention to detail. I so enjoy the free samples always included in my package -:o) I ordered the Bearberry pigmentation cream after reading the rave reviews for this product. It feels amazing on my skin and I can wait to see the results. I have been using the cream for a week and already my skin feels so much softer. I am holding thumbs that this cream will fade my stubborn pigmentation and even out my skin.29/01/2015, By ElienaI am especially happy with the Bearberry Pigmentation cream - it has already started to fade the brown spots on my hands.26/01/2015, By DevikaThank you for your prompt delivery and amazing efficiency. I have been using the cream for about three weeks. My skin is very sensitive and I have bad pigmentation. This cream has made my skin look brighter and my pigmentaton lighter. I am hopiing it will keep working, this miracle cream. It smells awesome. I am most definitely going to order more!!!04/01/2015, By RuthI use this as my only moisturiser. My extremely pale skin is blemished easily and this has helped me achieve a smoother look so far, I will definitely be buying more! Have used expensive products in the past and way prefer this cream.01/01/2015, By candacein just one application i already started to notice a difference, my sun spots looked lighter and my skin in general looked healthier.10/12/2014, By EvetteWorks well as a moisturizer04/12/2014, By NatalieI was a bit skeptical at the size, but a reasonable price for what it promises, love the fragrance, and a little goes a long way my pigmentation had a marked improvement in less than a week. This product is a keeper!19/11/2014, By KarenThis product deserves cult status. It absolutely works. And is a fraction of the price of high end creams using the exact same ingredient i.e. Arbutin or Bearberry extract. I will be a customer for life.30/10/2014, By SonjaThank you so much for this great product. After 2 weeks I can see the difference and even my 8 year old daughter us this on her face.22/10/2014, By CharmaineI have tried other products - chemical ones - and they honestly do not work! I used a well known brand (expensive too) for many months and nothing....
After using bearberry for just 3 weeks I noticed that the marks have definitely become lighter and one completely disappeared. I do understand that this is not an overnight thing - sun damage is deep and it takes years before it pops up to the surface so I do not expect miracles but this cream has already made such a difference. The bigger marks have already started itching - a sure sign that it is working! Oh and by the way, I scratched, no gouged my chin by accident, it was very deep. Anyhow, I continued to apply the bearberry all over my face, including the open scratch and I could literally see the wound close up! It took three days and it had closed and healed completely! This is amazing, when one gets older, wounds take long to heal and there is generally a mark left behind. Bearberry not only healed the wound within 3 days, it left no scarring whatsoever! I have just ordered my 2nd tube and will never be without again! Thank you!10/10/2014, By KeitumetseIts slowly works it magic, my acne scars are almost all gone! it really is AMAZING, just give it time. Plus one tube last at least two months18/08/2014, By CarisnaThis little discovery is the fountain of youth in a tube. I bought it originally for pigmentation, but then started using it all over my face as a preventative measure for my pigmentation and then people were asking me what am I using for my skin because it looks so smooth and radiant This is awesome and will buy it again!11/08/2014, By GloriaI have tried many pigmentation creams which did not work for me, but tried this one and it sure does work. My skin is radiant and the pigmentation marks are much lighter. Great product indeed.15/07/2014, By StephanieI have recently been suffering with dry, itchy patches of skin on my face. Have tried numerous creams with no result. Then I rediscovered a tube of this cream, I had bought previously and forgotten about. WHAT A FIND! It soothed my skin immediately and next day the situation was already so much better. My only complaint is that the tube is far too small!09/06/2014, By JodiAlthough the improvement in my pigmentation marks were gradual (about 2 weeks before noticing a difference), the results were remarkable, and unlike other pigmentation creams, it did not make the effected area red and irritated.
The effects are also longer lasting than the harsh dermatological creams that I previously used.
Love it :)28/05/2014, By AmberI love this product, my skin has improved so much, I have been using this as a moisturiser for the past 2 weeks the texture is silky smooth, the smell is not my fav. But it works10/04/2014, By LuckyWhat an amazing cream. It does what it says but also heals and softens incredibly well, I damaged my skin by trying benzoyle peroxide (big mistake) and this cream healed all the roughness and dryness overnight. I also really appreciate this brands affordability.03/04/2014, By SamI have been experiencing severe acne of late which has resulted in dark scarring. Robyn was extremely helpful in reccommending a number of products, one of which is this lovely fragranced cream. It has certainly lightened the scars considerably after 3 weeks of use. I also noticed that my skin is more supple, smooth and dry areas are moisturised. I only use it at night and I have noticed that a little goes a long way. Thank you Robyn22/03/2014, By CoraWorks very well, you will notice a difference within you first tube. Miracle cream.27/02/2014, By LiezalDefinitely works. Lighted eczema scarring in 2 weeks. Love it but bigger sized container please.06/02/2014, By KharishmaThis has to be the best product i have used this far, for many years i have tried a million things spending millions on skin care products then i came across this website and i have never been happier about how my skin looks right now. beside that the pigment has lightened up, my skin also glows.
this product has become a part of my lifestyle, i am loving it. thank you26/10/2013, By RefiloeThis is my miracle cream,i have noticed a huge difference ,my pigmentation has improved drastically even people notice the difference.25/09/2011, By BonitaAfter only two weeks, I have already noticed a difference. This is an amazing cream!!! I will definitely be ordering my second tube soon.25/09/2011, By HazeldeneMy son has freckles and this product has been such a blessing as most of his freckles are gone,he just loves this this cream17/09/2011, By Tanya Fmiracle in a tube!!! wish it was bigger. I have slight pigmentationon my cheeks and forehead and this works like magic plus it is a great moisturiser!11/09/2011, By victoriaI have always had slight pigmentation around my mouth and eyes. Kal recommended this product to me and I will not be looking back. It works and it feels so silky soft. I wish there was a face cream like it. My pigmentation is improving rapidly!25/08/2011, By JolineI am on my third tube and will definitely keep using! My skin has a overall brightness and glow and pigmentation has very noticeably improved. I use this as a moisturizer in the morning and spot treatment at night. I can even go without makeup now!20/08/2011, By AletThis is really working for my pigmentation on my face, unlike another expensive brand I've tried...28/07/2011, By C DPigmentation hasnt improved dramatically,im on my 2nd tube,so im not giving up,as this procuct leaves my skin glowing and mosturised15/06/2011, By Pia TaylorI love this cream! When you put it on it feels somehow cool and soothing (as if it's been in a fridge). I've been using it (fairly regularly) for about a month now on some wayward pigmentation and there is definitely some improvement.07/06/2011, By LauraI have been using this product for a week and I noticed that it helps heal pimple marks on my face29/04/2011, By AngelaI have purchased your Bear Berry Pigmentation cream for the second time now. I was very impressed with the results since the first use. The pigmentation on my cheeks is visibly lighter!
