There are many remarkable ingredients in this hydroquinone-free, skin-lightening gel, including an effective blend of the polyhydroxy acid gluconolactone and the alpha hydroxy acid glycolic acid. The formula also includes kojic acid to lighten hyperpigmentation. However, all of these potentially helpful ingredients are a wash because alcohol is a major ingredient.
