This lightening cream should NOT be used in the genital areas. The genital areas are very sensitive and the ingredients used in this product can possibly cause irritation in these areas.

Is Hydroquinone Safe?
Most U.S. experts — including the American Academy of Dermatology — stand firmly behind this lightening agent. "Hydroquinone has been used over the last 40 years, and there has not been a single documented case of either skin cancer or internal cancer associated with it," says Dr. Friedman. Like all drugs, it needs to be used properly, and he recommends that his patients apply it no more than twice a day for no longer than six months. Adds Dr. Hirsch: "When used as intended, and for a finite time, this drug is safe and is the most effective treatment available for pigmentation. Period."

According to USA dermatologist, Dr. Audrey Kunin, “For some reason there is an urban myth circulating about the supposed hazards of long term hydroquinone use. I am unaware of any health risks associated with long term use of hydroquinone and completely at a loss as to where this myth came from.” Source: http://www.dermadoctor.com/article_Melasma_55.html

Dr. Grimes offers a short list of alternatives such as azelaic acid, kojic acid, mequinol, and licorice, saying, “They have some efficacy, but they don’t work as well as hydroquinone.” Source: http://www.the-dermatologist.com/
