Brief Answer:
You can use the product.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query,
Demelan is a combination of glycolic acid and kojic acid.
Both are depigmenting agents.
You can use it but be careful, it may cause you bit irritation.
Best is to start with a short contact period of about 10 to 15 min and then slowly increase the duration.
Also use a sunscreen in day.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
