Says who? It's relatively safe for all skin types.

I have a light brown complexion and I've done TCA Peels and TCA CROSS several times. No problems at all.

I've also read of people with darker skin using it without any problems.

The reasons for the warnings are because hyper or hypo pigmentation may occur in some occasions. So, it's a good idea to do a small test before doing it on a larger scale.

That is way it is not always good.
