5 Cheap Lightening Cream in Nigeria without Hydroquinone

Lightening creams for fair skin people in Nigeria.

Nigeria has one of the largest markets for lightening creams in the world. In most lightening creams hydroquinone is a vital ingredient in the production.

However, of late there has been a sound warning against creams that contain hydroquinone. The reason is that it comes with side effects especially to dry skins.

Looking closely at what hydroquinone does to the skin it’s said that it can take away the outer part of the skin which may lead to skin cancer. You can read more of that in an article published by BBC: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-49851669

From another article published on Healthline, they seem to find nothing wrong with using creams with hydroquinone except for dry skins. You can read more here: https://www.healthline.com/health/beauty-skin-care/hydroquinone

Sorry if the 2 references above look conflicting but I strongly suggest you try hydroquinone-free creams especially if you have an uneasy feeling about them.

So, below are 5 good creams without hydroquinone you can buy and use in Nigeria. These creams don’t just leave bright spots they tone your overall skin till it gets to the level you want.

Warning: It is wise in the first 2 weeks of using any lightening cream to pay attention to how it affects your skin. Any bad signs you may want to take a break or try something new.
