Skin whitening: I don' t think that glutathione can help much in whitening your skin.

Vitiligo: Oral Glutathione will not be very effective to help lighten skin as it gets broken down by stomach Hcl acid and very little amount gets absorbed. If you want to depigment your remaining skin, seek the advice of a Dermatologist who specializes in vitiligo. Best of luck.
