Eukroma Cream 4 % 20 g
Eukroma contains Hydroquinone that is used to lighten the colour of highly pigmented skin, such as in age spots, freckles or acne scars, by inhibiting the production of the skin pigment melanin.
Eukroma Cream is used as a skin lightener to reduce the colour of highly pigmented skin due to over production of the pigment melanin, in a variety of skin conditions. These include liver spots or age spots, also known as senile lentigine, that are common in aging skin, freckles, acne scars and other forms of unwanted skin discolouration. Eukroma cream is also used to treat melasma, which are patches of dark skin discoloration that appear on areas of the face and are caused by exposure to the sun, pregnancy and contraceptive hormones.
Eukroma Cream contains hydroquinone a chemical that Inhibits tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the production of melanin, which is the pigment that gives colour to the skin. Hydroquinone in Eukroma Cream works by decreasing the production of melanin pigment in the melanocytes (melanin producing cells) of the skin; as well as increasing the breakdown of melanosomes that contain the melanin. As the amount of melanin produced decreases the darkened skin gradually lightens to match normal skin colour.
Patients using Eukroma Cream may encounter unwanted side effects such as: possible skin sensitivity and\or contact dermatitis, allergic reactions due to the presence of metabisulphite, possible blue\black pigment build-up (exogenous ochronosis).
