Hyde Hydroquinone 3% Cream by reputable brand Menarini consist of high-quality Hydroquinone Monohydrate 3% which is used flawlessly in dermatology for flawless skin hyperpigmentation treatment, dark skin patches, melasma, and other skin discolorations. Hydroquinone 3% is an ingredient found in many skin-lightening products marketed to women for purposes of reducing age spots, melasma, freckles and other types of hyperpigmentation. In 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed a rule that hydroquinone be considered “generally recognized as safe and effective,” or GRASE. Depending on the concentration of hydroquinone in your skin lightener, you may get sufficient results; however, there are known side effects you should be aware of when using a hydroquinone-based bleaching cream.

The term skin hyperpigmentation refers to the dark, discolored patches of skin that occur when melanin is overproduced. Reasons for this overproduction include sun exposure, skin damage, hormones and certain medications. The condition is typically harmless, though its appearance on prominent areas of the body – such as the face, can affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, there are several fade creams like Hyde 3% Hydroquinone intended for melasma recovery. Consult a professional dermatologist to determine one that is suitable for you.

When used in skin-lightening creams and similar products, hydroquinone 3% inhibits the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its color. Cosmetic skin-lightening products containing hydroquinone often have a strident scent reminiscent of bleach, and in fact, they are often referred to as “bleaching creams.”

Skin irritation: A common effect associated with hydroquinone 3% is skin irritation. It should not be used on skin that is dry, chapped, sunburned or already irritated, nor should it be applied to an open wound. Irritation can be reduced by avoiding the use of harsh cleansing agents, such as soaps and shampoos, hair dye, permanent waves, cream depilatories, waxes made for hair removal and products that contain alcohol, lime, spices or other astringents. Avoid using medicated products unless instructed by a dermatologist.

Sun sensitivity: Hydroquinone 3% makes your skin more sensitive to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. However, if you are trying to fade sun spots, freckles and other types of hyperpigmentation, sun protection is essential, as sun exposure in itself makes discoloration worse. Always smooth on a broad-spectrum sunscreen before you go outdoors so you will not undo the benefits of your skin-lightening products.

Cautions: If purchasing a skin-lightening cream that contains hydroquinone 3%, make sure to read the product’s label first. If you use a topical cream that contains too much hydroquinone you might end up with discoloration that is almost impossible to treat. Only your dermatologist can tell you if it is safe to use hydroquinone 3% at a concentration of more than two percent.


Hyde 3% Hydroquinone cream designed to lighten discolorations in skin. It works by reducing the amount of melanin in the skin, making darkened areas lighter. Consumers are buying hydroquinone 3% products for their convenience and results.

Hyde Hydroquinone 3% cream contains hydroquinone a chemical that 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. Hydroquinone 3% in Hyde cream works by Inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the production of melanin, which is the pigment that gives colour to the skin. This slows down the production of melanin, so that as the amount of melanin decreases the darkened skin gradually fades to match normal skin. The skin conditions that Hyde cream is effective in treating 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. Hyde 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.

Easy to apply: Hyde Hydroquinone 3%cream is painless and easy to apply during your regular morning routine. Manufacturers recommend that the cream be applied regularly, usually once a day, to the discolored areas of skin and rubbed in thoroughly. This ensures that the component is applied only to the areas that need treatment.

Quick results: Most users who use Hyde hydroquinone 3% cream see a change in the discolored skin within three weeks when using the cream twice a day or once a day. Although the cream may take longer to work in some users, its effectiveness can usually be determined within four months. Alternative methods of treating skin discoloration, such as dermabrasion, require scheduled treatments and a healing period of several days or weeks, which Hyde hydroquinone 3% cream does not require.

Few side effects: Users who use Hyde 3% hydroquinone cream rarely report side effects. Those who do may report a mild skin irritation, which usually clears up as soon as the stops applying the hydroquinone 3% cream. More severe allergic reactions, such as swollen or crusty skin or difficulty breathing, are rarely reported. In addition, Hyde hydroquinone 3% cream rarely reacts with other components. Advised to tell their dermatologist about all medications, supplements and herbal remedies they are taking before trying Hyde hydroquinone 3% cream.

    I wouldn’t purchase again. The cream is a bit too heavey that I feel like once it absorbs, it leaves my pores clogged(I have large pores) or wouldn’t absorb all the way.

    This cream has worked very well for me at fading acne spots and other age spots. I have tried a plethora of products, some of which were very expensive, and have not had results anywhere close to the results I have had with Hyde. I love the scent and lightweight texture of it, I never feel greasy.

    But Hyde cream certainly did the job – I had considered going to a dermatologist, but that is no longer necessary. My skin is a uniform color and I think it even helped with some of the wrinkles! I will continue to use it, as prescribed.

    Used according to derm instructions and got beautiful results in 2 weeks of constant every night use. Now on azelaic acid 20% to keep the results.

    This product is effective in lightening dark spots on your skin but it takes quite a long time. After about 3 weeks I only managed to see actual results.

    I love this product! It definitely fades dark spots and acne scars. I have sensitive skin that is prone to acne when using heavy creams and moisturizers. I have not had any acne problems since I started using Hyde cream three months ago.
