Hydroquinone-free skin lightener - Melarase AM Daily UV Protect with SPF 30

If I have an allergy to hydroquinone, what product can I use for skin lightening?

 

Patients who are allergic to sulfa medications may be sensitized to hydroquinone, a common skin lightener and over-the-counter and prescription medication.  Although there are several over-the-counter options for skin lightening, patients with sulfa allergies may have limited options for sunspots and age spots on the face.  This is especially problematic for women with a condition known as melasma.  Melarase AM daily UV protect with SPF 30 is a hydroquinone free over-the-counter product for skin lightening that contains UVA and UVB sunblock in addition to active skin lightening ingredients.  If you have an allergy to hydroquinone you may benefit from Melarase AM for skin discoloration.
