Benoquin cream contains monobenzone (monobenzyl ether of hyquinone) that works by causing free-radical formation in the skin and this causes destruction of remaining melanocytes. Monobenzone in Benoquin cream also acts by inhibiting the tyrosine enzyme that is involved in the production of melanin, the pigment that gives color 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.



A thin layer of Benoquin Cream 20% should be applied and rubbed into the pigmented area two or three times daily, or as directed by physician. Prolonged exposure to sunlight should be avoided during treatment with Benoquin Cream 20%, or a sunscreen should be used.

Depigmentation is usually accomplished after one to four months of Benoquin Cream 20% treatment. If satisfactory results are not obtained after four months of Benoquin Cream 20% treatment, the drug should be discontinued. When the desired degree of depigmentation is obtained, Benoquin Cream 20% should be applied only as often as needed to maintain depigmentation (usually only two times weekly).
