Makari’s skin lightening creams are 100% Hydroquinone-free.

Makari, a producer of high-end cosmetics and skin care products for women and men of color, announces that its skin-lightening creams are 100% hydroquinone-free and do not fall within the FDA’s recent proposed ban on skin-bleaching creams.

The FDA’s proposed ban requires skin-bleaching formulas that contain a drug called hydroquinone, a possible carcinogen also linked to a skin-disfiguring condition, to be purchased with a prescription due to the potential of disfiguration.

Although the complete affects of hydroquinone are not fully known, the drug is linked to a widely documented disfiguring condition called ochronosis, a darkening and thickening of the skin as well as the appearance of dome-shaped bumps and grayish-brown spots, according to the FDA.

The FDA estimates that there are 65 companies in the United States that sell roughly 130 different skin products that contain hydroquinone. Makari’s products are all hydroquinone free. Most are made from caviar and some are made with Vegeclairine. Both ingredients lighten the skin naturally and safely.

Caviar, a species indigenous to the Caspian Sea, and Vegeclairine, a plant extract, are loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals which produce a gentle natural lightening effect.

Makari’s entire line of lightening cosmetics are safe all-natural products that lighten powerfully, but in a controlled uniform manner that create a luminous complexion.
