Hi Ruku, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer as there are no split face studies comparing the two product ranges.

My preference is to use the NeoStrata but this is based only on my experience with my own patients and the studies performed by independent researchers on the benefits of superficial alphahydroxy and polyhydroxy acids, depigmenting ingredients, vitamin C and A.

Furthermore the concentration of these active ingredients is higher in NeoStrata but either way I would add a SPF 50 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide and one may even consider adding superficial glycolic acid peels to your topical regime to further boost the depigmenting effect.
