Hydroquinone is a lightening agent used to treat hyperpigmentation, melasma, freckles, and other forms of pigmentation.

What is Hydroquinone?

Hydroquinone works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. It works by decreasing the number of pigment granules in the skin’s pigment cells.

Commonly used to treat hyperpigmentation, melasma, freckles, and other forms of pigmentation, Hydroquinone can also be used to lighten dark patches of skin caused by sun damage, age spots, or acne.
