Interesting Safety facts you should know about the harmful Hydroquinone as a harmful ingredient in lightening lotions. .
In the United states 2% HQ is accepted for over the counter sale, as long as the manufacturers give warning that the product should only be used for 3 months, and this is clearly stated in the packaging. However a lot of European manufactured products have a new fancy name for Hydroquinone in their ingredient listing in order to deceive customers that are now frightened by the bad reputation of Hydroquinone.
Have you seen: HYDROXYPHENOL or1,4-BENZENEDIOL in the ingredient listing of your favorite skincare products, they are some of the popularpseudonyms for Hydroquinone, derived from its molecular structure.
Not everyone wants to BLEACH their skin, some are happy with it and are looking for products that can help them “Brighten” or give them a “Glow”. Because most of us are not Cosmetic Chemist or Ingredient experts, we pick up an item, quickly look at the back of it for a mention of “Hydroquinone”, and when we don’t see it, we’re happy to make that purchase.
Fast forward a month later, our skin becomes red, irritated, we break out in rashes, not understanding how this “Brightening” gel could be doing this to us.
If this has ever happened to you, chances are you purchased a product containing hydroquinone that is causing an adverse reaction to your skin.
While it is NOT concluded that Hydrquinone causes Cancer, it is however known to CAUSE severe and permanent skin damage like Ochronosis (black/purple reDarkening of the skin) in Black skin.
Another way of finding out if your product contains Hydroquinone is the do the air test.
Here’s what you do: Open a jar of your questionable cream or pour some of your questionable lotion on the counter, leave it there for 2 days, if it oxidizes and turns Brown, it has HQ in it.
