Hydroquinone is a depigmenting agent used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, chloasma, and melisma caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin.

p-Hydroxyanisole. Molecular Weight: Mequinol is a synthetic derivate of hydroquinone and depigmenting agent. Although the exact mechanism of the depigmenting effects of mequinol remains unclear, it may exert its effect by oxidation of tyrosinase to cytotoxic products in melanocytes.

Mequinol may also act by competitively. Hydroquinone can occur naturally in many plant foods, as glucose conjugate, namely, arbutin, for example, in the wheat, pears, coffee, onion, tea and red wine [].Arbutin is readily hydrolyzed in the stomach to free hydroquinone, which is widely absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract [].Hydroquinone is autoxidized by two successive one-electron oxidations, Cited by:   Hydroquinone decreases the formation of melanin in the skin.

Melanin is the pigment in skin that gives it a brown color. Hydroquinone topical (for the skin) is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, melasma (sun damage), or chloasma (darkened skin caused by hormonal changes).
