Eukroma-SG is a topical medicated cream prescribed to reduce the appearance of darkened areas on the skin such as freckles, moles, age and dark spots, or patches that are do not match the surrounding area. Eukroma-SG cream also contains several sun-blocking agents in its composition such as Oxybenzone and Octyl Methoxycinnamate for better skin protection against UVA/UVB rays. Eukroma-SG cream operates by reducing the amount of melanin in the treated area to lighten it until it blends with other areas color. Dermatologists often prescribe it to be used along with other solutions or for other skin conditions not listed here. Eukroma-SG skin cream consist of three powerful components: two percent Hydroquinone, five percent Octyl Methoxycinnamate and three percent Oxybenzone.
Hydroquinone 2% is a controversial skin whitening agent added to many topical brightening creams. Hydroquinone decreases the formation of melanin, the pigment that gives skin a brown or olive color. It’s used topically to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, chloasma and melasma skin conditions.
Octyl Methoxycinnamate 5% is an organic ester used in sunscreens and lip balms formed from methoxycinnamic acid and 2-ethylhexanol. It is a sun blocking agent that absorbs UVB rays, but not UVA rays. However, when it is exposed to sunlight, it is rendered less effective, although this reaction can be prevented by the addition of other ingredients. It is also used to reduce to appearance of scars.
Oxybenzone 3% primarily functions as a photostabilizer and sunscreen. Among the vast selection of sunscreen active ingredients, Oxybenzone is classified as a “chemical” sunscreen agent. Inadequate when used alone, Oxybenzone absorbs UVB and short UVA rays but is a relatively weak chemical UV absorber. It also helps preserve the integrity of other cosmetic ingredients, preventing their deterioration under the sun. For this reason, Oxybenzone is most often used in conjunction with other sunscreen agents.
