We’ve selected this name because all skin types have certain areas that are wonderful and certain areas where it is prone to certain conditions.

From the darkest brown to the lightest yellow of black complexions, it is the compound melanin that gives this skin type its color. Melanin has many advantages to it which includes that it naturally protects brown skin from the sun, large amounts of melanin makes the skin thicker, more elastic, less prone to wrinkles, lines and sagging.

When people say, “black doesn’t crack” what they are really referring to are the anti-aging properties of melanin which black people have more than any other group of people on earth.

The paragraph above lists the benefits of a large amount of melanin and what we have listed below shows some of the conditions that a lot of melanin can cause and why people with various shades of brown skin must pick the right stretch mark removal cream.

Another thing that comes with high levels of melanin is the tendency for skin that is prone to discoloration. This discoloration becomes an issue when scars and stretch marks form because it typically makes for stretch marks and scars that are much darker than the base color of the skin.
