    Question about MONOBENZONE and HYDROQUINOE.

    I have some questions I hope you guys can help answer.

    ①I learned that monobenzone is a product for the treatment of vitiligo, seems to have the ability to destroy melanocytes.
    So when using monobenzone to whiten, will the body hair also be affected and become white?


    ②I am also interested in hydroquinone. Can someone tell me the principle of using hydroquinone to whiten skin? Is the whitening principle the same as monobenzone? (destroy melanocytes)


    ③One last question. Does monobenzone and hydroquinone have any side effects or harm? I want to be careful and serious about this.


    Looking forward to u guys answers. Thanks~ Sorry for my expression, English is not my native language...😘

    The body hair can become more light to a little bit red. If big white patches occur, the hair on this area become white.

    Hydroquinone slows down the melanin production while the monobenzone kills melanocytes.

    Hydroquinone can induces damages on different body organs and the major and almost only side effect of the monobenzone is to give a chetaah skin.

    Higher percentage of both Monobenzone and hydroquinone is for de pigmentation.

    Mono is a very risky substance and only used for people suffering with vitiligo to even out the skin. If the skin has no pigment it's more susceptible to sun cancers (the pigments in the skin protect us from this which is why it's less common for darker skinned people to get skin cancer). 4% HQ is considered the upper limit for what is safe and then doctors suggest only five months then stopping for another five. Anything higher runs the risk of creating toxic side effects in the body long term.

    I would suggest against mono and use HQ sparingly on areas where other lighteners e.g. alpha arbutin, ionic acid, gluta haven't worked.
