How does Eukroma (Hydroquinone) work:
Eukroma (Hydroquinone) is a skin-bleaching agent that is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, chloasma (also known as melasma), age spots, and acne scars. Eukroma (Hydroquinone) works by decreasing the production and increasing the breakdown of melanosomes (melanin pigment granules) in the skin's pigment cells (melanocytes). It does this by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase, the enzyme needed to make melanin.

Do not use benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, or other peroxide products when using Eukroma (Hydroquinone). A temporary dark staining of the skin may occur. If accidentally used together, wash the skin with soap and water to remove the staining. Eukroma creams may contain sodium metabisulphite that may cause serious allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis) in certain susceptible people. Eukroma should not be used in pregnancy or when breastfeeding.
