This compounded cream is designed to reduce the appearance of freckles, sun spots, melisma and general brown patching. It contains 2% Hydroquinone and 3% Kojic Acid which are effective and potent depigmenting agents able to inhibit melanin production in the skin. Its action is enhanced by the presence of glycolic acid which aid its penetration through the skin as well as providing their own exfoliating effects. Vitamins C and E are also incorporated into the cream for their antioxidant qualities. This gel should first be tested on a small area of skin to test for any potential sensitivities. It is designed to be applied morning and night only to the affected area of skin. Several weeks of treatment are needed before any noticeable improvement occurs. Treatment should continue until the desired effect is obtained.
The gel should be applied directly on the sun spots and blemishes to help reduce their appearance. It comes in a pump jar. Due to the instability of hydroquinone this product only has a shelf life of 3 months. If it changes to a dark brown in color it has oxidised and should be discarded.
For those who wish to avoid hydroquinone try Dermidenticals Restore Brightening cream
