skin bleaching cream
  • Topical application of Hydroqin® cream produces a reversible depigmentation of the skin by inhibition of the enzymatic oxidation of tyrosine to 3,4 dihydroxyphenylalanin(dopa); therefore it is used externally as depigmentation agent in conditions such as chloasma, melasma, freckles, and age spots.
  • Topical application of Hydroqin® cream suppresses other melanocyte metabolic processes.

Each 1 gram of Hydroqin® cream contains:

  • Hydroquinone      40 mg.
