What Is A Ret HC Cream?
A Ret HC Cream (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/Hydrocortisone Acetate) is a triple combination skin lightening cream used to treat hyperpigmentation on the skin. Its mechanism of action is reducing the amount of pigments such as melanin. This helps to lighten unwanted areas of darkened skin, including melasma (due to sun damage), chloasma, freckles, age spots and senile lentigines. Hydroquinone is a compound widely used in cosmetics for its ability to decrease the skin color, leading to whitening. By affecting the synthesis of the pigment melanin, it can gradually bleach the skin, thereby treating unwanted dark spots.
How Does A Ret HC Cream Work?
A Ret HC Cream is a combination of three medicines: Hydroquinone, Tretinoin and Hydrocortisone which treat melasma (dark spots on skin). Hydroquinone is a skin lightening medicine. It reduces the amount of a skin pigment (melanin) that causes darkening of skin. Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that helps the skin to renew itself more quickly. Hydrocortisone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.

Uses Of A Ret HC Cream
Tretinoin (a type of vitamin A also known as retinoic acid) is frequently used in dermatology. It helps to increase the penetration of hydroquinone through the outer skin (stratum corneum), while also preventing the oxidation of hydroquinone, thereby enhancing its effects. In addition to this, it may also improve the rate at which the pigment is removed due to the fact that it increases the turnover rate of keratinocytes, while also helping to reduce the appearance of some fine wrinkles. Finally, hydrocortisone is added for its anti-inflammatory properties. It helps to lessen inflammation on the skin.
