SALT INFORMATION for TRICLIN

Hydroquinone(2%)

Uses

Hydroquinone is used in the treatment of hyperpigmentation (dark skin patches) and melasma (dark and discolored patches on the skin).

How it works

Hydroquinone bleaches the skin by reducing the accumulation of skin pigment called melanin that causes darkening of skin. It interferes with the synthesis of melanin and hampers important processes within cells that produce melanin (melanocytes). The bleaching effect of hydroquinone is reversible (reversible depigmentation).
