The Food and Drug Administration recently proposed a ban on the sale of products containing hydroquinone (pronounced hydro-QUIN-own) without a prescription. Fair & Flawless Skin, a leading provider of safe and effective skin whitening products for the past decade, supports this measure and announced its entire line of dermatologist-approved skin whitening products is 100% hydroquinone-free.

The proposed ban comes after mounting evidence linking the use of hydroquinone to potential health risks. Hydroquinone, a toxic and powerful chemical, is the active ingredient in most skin bleaching products. Studies have linked its use to such serious health conditions as leukemia, liver damage and thyroid disorders.

Though the complete affects are not yet known, the FDA is now describing hydroquinone as a possible carcinogen -- citing its use with documented links to a skin disfiguration condition known as ochronosis. This condition results in permanent skin disfiguration marked by abnormal skin thickness, splotches, grayish patches and pebbly bumps. The FDA reports consumers have developed ochronosis after using hydroquinone products for as little as three months.

When enacted, the agency’s ban would involve an estimated 65 companies in the United States which sell about 130 different products containing the chemical. Fair & Flawless Skin, with its unique, dermatologist-approved skin whitening and skin bleaching products, have been safely transforming complexions for over a decade. Their holistic formulations are free from dangerous ingredients and are made from natural extracts proven to be safe and effective.

Fair & Flawless natural skin whitening products are the result of decades of research. They are 100% hydroquinone and mercury free and safe enough to use even during pregnancy. Their botanically-based formulations make skin radiant and luminous allowing you to choose your skin’s color depth.
