Hydroquinone (a.k.a HQ), is one if not the most controversial ingredient of all skin care products in the market today. As a chemical it has other derivatives/names that manufacturers of beauty product use just to confuse consumers into buying their products without knowing what these products contain.
The FDA in United States approves 2% HQ for Over-the-Counter products, as long as the manufacturers give warning that the product should only be used for 3 months, and this is clearly stated on the packaging.
How ever we all know that hydroquinone whitens the skin, but as a result of doing this it kills your skin pigment cell, skin pigment cells are responsible to produce melanin, which will protect your top skin from the sun rays, other natural skin lighteners such as kojic acid and arbutin they lighten the skin by reducing the production of the melanin and not by killing the cells.
