Hydroquinone USP is a common ingredient found in temporary skin lightening or bleaching products. Over-The-Counter (OTC) skin lightening products usually contain 2% Hydroquinone. Prescription strength preparations are available in higher concentrations (up to 4%). Preparations sometimes include a sunscreen, to reduce re-pigmentation, or an exfoliant (such as an alpha hydroxy acid), to accelerate de-pigmentation.
