Skinlite cream is composed of Hydroquinone, Mometasone and Tretinoin as ingredients. It has hydroquinone in it which helps in lightening the skin colour. However it also makes skin sensitive to sunrays.

Steroid-induced pimples, photosensitivity, rosacea, skin atrophy, stretch marks, pigmentation, dryness, severe itching and hair growth on the face are few side effects which can be seen with its use.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
