Hydroquinone, USP is an effective topical medicine used to treat dark colored patches, freckles, and spots on the skin that appear due to sun exposure. All Spectrum Chemical USP grade products are manufactured, packaged and stored under.

Hydroquinone (HQ) is a chemical compound that inhibits the functions of melanocytes and has long been known for its skin-whitening effect. According to previous studies, the Tyrosinase (Tyr) activity inhibitory effect and melanocyte-specific cell toxicity are known depigmenting mechanisms; however, details of the underlying mechanisms are by: Admire My Skin offers clinical skin care without a prescription, including the flagship product the 2% Hydroquinone Serum. Admire My Skin products are designed to help minimize the appearance of premature skin aging, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage.

creams contained hydroquinone and mercury at levels which were harmful to the users. Their physico-chemical properties like pH which ranged from - and moisture content from below 20 to 90% were also determined. The concentration of mercury in the creams ranged from below to µg/g and that of hydroquinone ranged from - 2. Dr. Tabibian responded: Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is certainly more potent in real clinical settings. However, it is quite concentration dependent. I do not find the 2% concentrations to be very effective vs. the 4% concentrations (or higher if .

Mequinol may also act by competitively. Hydroquinone can occur naturally in many plant foods, as glucose conjugate, namely, arbutin, for a specific melanocytotoxic agent.
