I am not sure. Perhaps you can make your own turmeric based cream? Perhaps, try online Indian beauty supply stores. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I suggest you make your own. It's a mask, just mix turmeric and curd, and make it into a paste, and put on your the bodypart of your choice, and leave for 15min, then wash off. Otherwise, go to an Indian store, and ask for Vicco Turmeric cream...

They used to sell Vicco Turmeric Cream in the local indian store where I live, lol! I used a tube up once, but I didn't really see it making a difference in my skin, though my mom said my skin looked good.

Turmeric actually has anti-inflammatory properties and is an antiseptic. Many cultures use fresh turmeric paste or powder on cuts, infections, and all sorts of health problems. For skin care, it's used to clear up acne, soften the skin, and brightening and toning your complexion. In South Asian weddings, they apply the paste all over the bride's skin (face and body) the day before the wedding for the softening and brightening. I'd use it if I wasn't scared of it tinting my skin yellow!

Tumeric has been found to have strong anti-cancer properties especially for skin growths. In mice, tumors have just shrunk down to nothing or gone away altogether. All yellow staining foods have this to some degree but tumeric is supposed to be one of the strongest. I use it in recipes whenever I can because it does not have a very strong flavor. Never thought of making a mask. Will be trying this!
