What is Hydroquinone 4.0?
Hydroquinone is a skin bleaching and lightening agent used in treating freckles, age spots, melasma and other skin pigmentations that may occur due to pregnancy, skin trauma, the use of birth control pills, or hormone replacement therapies. The cream may also be used to treat acne scars and other forms of skin disorders and discoloration. The way Hydroquinone works is by polishing and purifying the deeper layers of the skin thus erasing spotted areas and blemishes along the way.
Hydroquinone releases certain enzymes that block the production of melanin to make the skin a lot more lighter and brighter in tone. The cream includes the so-called tyrsinase ingredient, which is an enzyme responsible for melanin production that gives color to our skin. Since the amount of melanin is decreased by Hydroquinone and its ingredients and enzymes, the darker skin gradually lightens to match your overall and normal skin color.
