Product description

Hydroquinone has been formulated for many years into creams, lotions, and gels to produce effective skin-lightening products. In the European Union, skin lighteners containing hydroquinone are now regulated as drugs rather than cosmetics and must be approved by the available authoritative body of European Member States for pharmaceutical products. Please contact your Eastman representative to request applicable Drug Master File information for support of the marketing authorization application for products using Eastman™ Hydroquinone, European Pharma Grade.
