Vitiligo causes the skin to lose melanin, which is the substance that gives colour to the skin, hair and eyes. The cells that produce melanin die, causing the affected area to become white. The cause of vitiligo is still unknown and no definite cure exists for the condition. Doctors usually recommend topical corticosteroids, oral steroids, light therapy or skin grafting to prevent vitiligo from progressing and to restore pigment to affected areas. Manufacturers of vitiligo oil claim that it can treat the condition with regular use. Consult your physician before using the product.
