Hydroquinone Side Effects to Our Body

Hydroquinone is a chemical substance found in many skin whitening product, especially in Asia and Africa. I'm not going to talk about the molecular or chemical things about it because you can read the whole thing on wikipedia. What I'm trying to explain is that hydroquinone actually never do any good to you.
You might think that hydroquinone save your look as it wipe out your dark spot. But do you know, that hydroquinone do its favor to whiten your skin by decreasing the production of melanin. Hydroquinone change the nature of our skin because it breaks melanocytes that produces melanin. Therefore, our skin is more exposed to ultra violet that can cause skin cancer.
Hydroquinone is also considered as carcinogenic substance. Study suggest that applying 4% hydroquinone or larger amount for a long time can increase the risk of cancer. It has a mutagenic effect that can makes our body cells to become malignant.
The use of hydroquinone is banned in Europe as well as India. In many other countries, hydroquinone is only allowed in skin care product as long as they maintain the dosage to be under 2%.
