Chemical/alternative names:

Hydroquinone

1,4-Benzenediol (hydroquinone)
1,4-Dihydroxy-benzeen
1,4-Dihydroxybenzen
1,4-dihydroxybenzen(czech)
1,4-Dihydroxy-benzol
HQ

Arbutin

4-hydroxyphenyl-beta-d-glucopyranosid (beta arbutin)
4-hydroxyphenyl-á-d-glucopyranoside (alpha arbutin)
4-hydroxyphenyl-β-d-glucopyranoside (beta arbutin)

When buying these raw/synthetic products, always opt for an official chemical supplier rather than a shop/online store etc. I havent been failed by them.

The alternative hq ingredient is what's listed in fair and white. I think it was this one (1,4-Benzenediol). Hmmm I wonder if it's really 8% or have they changed it?

Fair and white may had 8% in the past.
2 months ago i bought some from Amazon. It did NOTHING for me. It was like scented lotion. No lighting effect. Maybe I had a bootleg. At least that's what i experienced.

The 4% HQ for ADC gave me some skin lighting.
