Waterproof Skin Dye for Vitiligo

Chromelin® Complexion Blender is a waterproof skin dye for vitiligo, scars, or other causes of darken unpigmented or light areas of the skin. Chromelin is a clear liquid that dyes the skin gradually, so you can use additional applications  to help you achieve your desired shade. Chromelin can last for 3 to 10 days, depending on how much you scrub in the shower. However, light washing and swimming will not affect the color.

The shade that develops from using Chromelin varies from person to person – some develop an exact match, while others prefer to use concealing cosmetics in addition to fine-tune their skin color. Chromelin Complexion Blender is an effective skin dye solution for those with skin discoloration.

Applying Chromelin®

Apply a few drops to unpigmented areas with the applicator rod. Evenly spread Chromelin over the affected areas.

Allow Chromelin to dry completely. Do not wash treated area for at least 3 hours after application. In fact, we recommend you apply Chromelin before bed to ensure you allow enough time before bathing to allow the color to develop.

Be patient. It takes up to 6 hours for the color to develop.

Chromelin color and shade varies from person to person, so it may take some practice to get it to work just right for you. To achieve a darker color, repeat application instructions once or twice in 24 hours; more often if darker color is desired.

Chromelin will also darken pigmented skin. To prevent darkening of skin surrounding treated areas, take a damp tissue and gently wipe off any Chromelin that has overlapped onto normally pigmented skin.

Chromelin should always be applied by an adult or with adult supervision.

    Product last longer than a fake tan though it’s more orange then some fake tans though, my skin is light brown butngets quite dark in the Aussie summer

  8. Pamster

    I use this product to blend my white spots. It works better on the smooth skin inside my arm. I think its hard to blend to skin color. I do like that it stays on long.

  9. Library gal

    This product was very easy to use, however my vitiligo is mild and I have very fair skin, so this was a little too dark for me. It might work if you have a tan or darker skin.

    Product is wonderful but just me comment that formula should be added with some natural skinny color. This is very important to know the area which is already painted or brushed


The first application of Chromelin takes about six hours to develop color. Once some color is present, additional applications should take about two hours to develop color. We recommend you do the first application at bedtime, to an area that is not exposed, to see how the color develops.

As long as it takes the skin on the treated areas to shed. This is usually 3 to 10 days, depending on how much you scrub or clean the affected area. Light washing or swimming will not affect the color.

Once the desired color is obtained, one application of Chromelin daily or every other day is usually all that is needed to maintain the color.

The more times you apply Chromelin per day, the darker the color will become. You should allow Chromelin to dry at least one hour before reapplying.

The color developed by Chromelin varies from person to person. Some people develop a color that is an excellent match, others prefer also using concealing, covering cosmetics that can be adjusted more exactly.

The color produced by Chromelin is WATERPROOF. The covering cosmetics can rub off on clothing or anything coming in contact with covered areas. People often use Chromelin on their hands and other areas where they need waterproof color that will not rub off. Even when Chromelin is not a perfect match, most people prefer this color to the very noticeable, striking white color of skin lacking pigmentation.

Definitely. Many people use Chromelin as a waterproof base of color before applying covering cosmetics. Some patients report they can use less of the covering cosmetics when applying them to skin colored with Chromelin.

NO! IMPORTANT: Chromelin does not protect skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Be sure to apply sunscreen to all areas treated with Chromelin.

The active ingredient in Chromelin, dihydroxyacetone, is a safe, FDA-accepted ingredient. Chromelin can be used on children, however, be sure to read and follow the safety precautions on the bottle before use. Chromelin should always be applied by an adult or with adult supervision.
