    Hi I have been using this cream ft 3 years and have just found out it contains hydroquinone. Can you tell me if this is just a single batch or if their regular formula contains hydroquinone because I am so upset. It was the only cream that helped me fade my dark marks but I will stop using it if it contains hydroquinone regularly

      I would contact the manufacturer directly and enquire with them.
