Monobenzone Cream general information

What is Monobenzone Cream used for?

Benoquik cream also known as Monobenzone is used for depigmentation of the skin as a treatment for widespread vitiligo, a skin condition in which irregular patches of skin, covering about 50% of the body surface, lose colour and become whitened. This is caused by destruction of the pigment producing cells called melanocytes. Monobenzone cream is used as a skin lightener in people with vitiligo, to reduce the colour of patches of skin that contain pigment so that they match the areas of skin that have lost colour. Decolouration of the skin using Monobenzone cream is permanent and makes the skin sensitive to sunburn.

How does Monobenzone Cream work?

Monobenzone in Monobenzone cream also acts by inhibiting the tyrosine enzyme that is involved in the production of melanin, the pigment that gives colour to the skin. As the amount of melanin produced decreases the areas of normal skin gradually lighten to match the patches of vitiliginous paler skin.

What does Monobenzone Cream contain?
