welcome to HealthcareMagic
Melacare contains hydroxyquinone;tretinoin;and mometasone a steroid.It is used to lighten the skin but it has to be used for a specific time and prolonged usage is not advisable due to fear of unwanted side effects and steroid dependence Hydroquinone-based products like melacare is not a safe skin lightening ingredient and has been banned in europe and asia.So use it as prescribed by your doctor and also for the advised period and not lifelong.
Take care.
