Does baby tribotan lightens baby skin?
Like Funbact A, some persons believe tribotan cream have the ability to bleach, tone or lighten the baby’s skin (some mothers mix Funbact a with shea butter to bleach their baby’s skin) but this is not true. This is because unlike Funbact a, baby tribotan does not contain steriods as one of its active ingredients and therefore cannot lighten a baby’s skin. Most steroids containing creams can bleach the skin. In summary, Tribotan cannot lighten up the skin.
