You wouldn’t pour household bleach on your skin, would you?

But when you apply many of the over-the-counter skin whitening creams to your skin, you might as well be.

Skin whitening or bleaching creams contain a cocktail of harsh chemicals and additives that can cause significant long-term damage to your skin.

For example, Australia is lagging behind the rest of the world when it comes to banning two key skin cream ingredients: hydroquinone and mineral oil.

Hydroquinone is a chemical found in many skin whitening or bleaching products in Australia, while is has been banned in many countries overseas because of the damage it can cause to the skin.

Similarly, mineral oil is found in just about every commercial skin care products around, and yet many other countries ban it because of its suspected carcinogenic qualities.
