Because of the possible risk of this substance, Pigmanorm cream Widmer should not be applied to extensive large areas. To avoid any additional browning of the skin, the area being treated should be protected from intensive sunlight and ultra violet rays. In particular cases it is recommended that a sunscreen minimum SPF30 be used on the treated area (eg: Heliocare Gel SPF50) Avoid contact with mucous membranes, such as the nostrils and mouth.

How is Pigmanorm Cream Widner applied?
Always apply Pigmanorm cream in accordance with instructions. Please call us on 0845 389

the pigment spots.
Unless otherwise directed, the normal dosage is applied once per day.
As soon as the dark spots disappear, the frequency of application can be reduced. The
duration of treatment is usually 7 weeks. If after 3 months at the latest, the skin does not
improve, then treatment should be stopped.
NB: From experiments on animals after feeding them orally with hydroquinone, there is a
suspicion of the substance being genotoxic and have slight cancer inducing effects. Even if it
is only lightly applied, the duration of a local application should depend upon the therapeutic
success and be kept as short as possible. (please remember these problems occurred in rats
who were FED the drug)
