Good evening.. I want to ask why users of face creams containing hydroquinone can cause abnormalities in the kidneys, blood cancer and liver cell cancer?
Hello, thanks for your question.
Hydroquinone is a drug used to treat hyperpigmentation of the skin. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of parts of the skin that generally occurs after the skin experiences inflammation, acne scars, scars, or brown spots after exposure to the sun. Hyperpigmentation can also occur due to other things, such as hormonal influences during pregnancy.
Hydroquinone is widely found in skin whitening cosmetic products. Its use by applying to the skin (topical agent). Generally cosmetic products containing a maximum of 2 percent hydroquinone can be sold freely, but those containing more than 2 percent require a doctor's prescription to buy them. The safety of using hydroquinone itself is still debated and some countries have even banned its use.
Several studies suggest the dangers of using hydroquinone in higher and long-term doses which can cause kidney cancer, blood cancer and liver cell damage. The possibility of damage or mutation of cell DNA, causing organ abnormalities and even cancer. However research is still limited to animals and seems to still need further research.
Until now, hydroquinone is still widely used. Many argue that hydroquinone is still safe to use if used in the right way. However, you should use various facial cosmetic products according to the doctor's instructions, in order to avoid possible side effects.
