Hyrdoquinone can trigger acne- it does not treat it, it is a bleaching agent. BPO treats acne.

It's just one of those ingredients that irritate some people (including myself.) The two times I used it, I instantly broke out.

It's considered an "extreme sensitizer"

It ranks a 9 on a scale of 1-10 for hazardous cosmetic ingredients, 10 being most hazardous/allergenic (it's also highly carcinogenic)

Q: Can I use skin lightening products while on the Regimen?

A: Do not use products with the active ingredient Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone topical should not be used with benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, or other peroxide products. A temporary darkening of the skin may occur. For the full story on Hydroquinone readhere. Please see the paragraph under "What other drugs will affect Hydroquinone topical?" for the full explanation.

it doesnt say anything about them not working togethor beside the temporary stain but its not occuring for me ??
anyone know the truth

If you research Hydroquinone, it says a stain is possible side effect. Side effect means it doesn't happen every time to everyone. A side effect's presence or absence doesn't indicate whether the product's active ingredients are working or not.
