Yet research indicates skin reactions are rare and minor, or a result of using extremely high concentrations of hydroquinone, or of using hydroquinone products that have been adulterated with dangerous ingredients. Hydroquinone-based products were banned in South Africa years ago where problems were most frequently seen. However, hydroquinone products in South Africa and other countries are notorious for containing mercury and glucocorticoids, among other caustic and illegal contaminants, which were believed by many to be the cause of the disorders experienced (Sources: International Journal of Dermatology, February 2005, pages 112–115; and British Journal of Dermatology, March 2003, pages 493–500). There is abundant research showing hydroquinone to be safe and extremely effective.

It is used for acne, cystitis, sunstroke, bronchitis, laryngitis, urinary tract problems, fluid retention, psoriasis, eczema, sores, chapped skin, stress and skin care. It is also particularly good for skin problems, sore throats, urinary tract complaints. Q14. Explain the basic procedures for blending a mixture of essential oils. When blending, it is good to have in mind that oils from the same family blend well together; spices and citrus also blend well together; woody scents and citrus are a good combination; certain oils like peppermint, fennel, tea tree, clove, thyme and camomile, tend to take over any scent combination; menthol and flowery scents don’t tend to make a pleasing combination; many oils (jasmine, rose, orange, sandalwood, ylang-ylang) smell good on their own and do not need to be combined for a pleasing scent.

Treats sunburns Several sun blocks and sun creams are used to prevent the harmful sunrays from damaging the skin. Sometimes, the sunrays can penetrate through the sun screens.
Most of the scientific work on the composition, pharmacological and medicinal uses of propolis has however been done in the last 40 years, and there is now substantial evidence of its antimicrobial properties. (80) 1.3.2. Medical applications of propolis Propolis is used in a number of products including over-the-counter preparations for cold symptoms (upper respiratory tract infections, flu, common cold) and dermatological preparations to accelerate the healing of wounds, burns, acne, herpes and neurodermatitis. Propolis extract has antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties vary according to its source and the way it is prepared.
This formulation is equipotent to Diprivan but is associated with a higher incidence of pain on injection.24 An alternative to emulsion formulations of propofol and associated side effects (pain on injection, risk of infection, hypertriglyceridemia, pulmonary embolism) is creation of a prodrug (Aqauvan) by cleaving groups to the parent compound that increase its water solubility (phosphate monoesters, hemisuccinates). Propofol is liberated after hydrolysis by endothelial cell surface alkaline phosphatases. In this regard, injection of the water-soluble prodrug results in propofol and dose dependent sedative effects. Compared with propofol, this prodrug has a larger volume of distribution and higher potency.24 A nonlipid formulation of propofol uses cyclodextrins as a solublilizing agent. Cyclodextrins are ring sugar molecules that form guest (propofol)-host complexes migrating between the hydrophilic center of the cyclodextrin molecule and the water-soluble phase.
Mild cases usually respond to steroid creams (triamcinolone acetonide), but there is a possibility that eventually the disease will become resistant to steroids. Sunlight in moderate doses can help, because the ultraviolet rays slow down the rate at which epithelial cells are produced. Extremes of UV radiation can have the opposite effect, resulting in an aggravation of the condition. Calcipotriene, a vitamin D analog cream, helps to regulate skin cell production, decreasing the incidence of psoriasis plaques. Tar preparations also act to impede the proliferation of skin cells and have long been used to heal psoriasis lesions.
These chemicals might not suit every skin type. Chemical peels and chemicals such as salicylic acid are used in various cosmetic procedures and these can cause a lot of irritation and damage to the skin. Many of the bleaches used to whiten the skin and some facials can also cause the skin to burn.
Alpha-Arbutin is a water dissolvable agent used for skin bleaching purposes. The best part about this product is that it is suitable for all types of skin. Alpha-Arbutin is widely used in many skin care products because of its benefits. Kojic acid is used to treat both dark spots and pigmentation problems. It plays a crucial role in eliminating pigmentation as it slows down the production of melanin and hence brightens the skin making it look flawless and radiant.
The taste, smell antimicrobial properties of these substances are derived from compounds known as phytochemicals (secondary metabolites) present in the substance that inhibit growth of bacteria (Avato et al. 2002). The presence of a benzene functional group and sulfur may be an important component of the antimicrobial mechanism (Agabalogun, L et al). Presently, approximately 80% of the world population relies on botanical derived medicines as they are considered safe, free of side effects, effective against bacterial ailments and do not pose threat of bacterial resistance (Hora and Nair.1944). In this experiment, the antimicrobial properties of the powdered forms of three widely used Indian spices: Turmeric (Curcuma longa), Indian Lilac/Neem (Azadirachta indica), Ginger (Zinhiber officinale), Asafetida (Gumm oleoresin) was further investigated.
