EpiQuin Micro is a topical cream produced by SkinMedica and advertised as a non-surgical alternative to curing hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a condition where certain patches of the skin darken, which can look unattractive and make the skin look uneven and spotty. EpiQuin Micro is the first of its kind that claims to cure this condition, and it is backed up with several scientific studies and trials, so it looks promising.

Essentially, EpiQuin Micro is a prescription cream recommended by several experts, who claim that it is scientifically formulated to lighten the skin. It is only recommended for people with hyperpigmentation. This cream can be purchased without a doctor’s prescription, although they recommend consulting a doctor beforehand. One tube EpiQuin Micro can be bought online for varying prices; at its cheapest, EpiQuin Micro will cost you $110 per tube according to our research. EpiQuin’s official website also offers an in-depth look into how EpiQuin works and why it does — but the science is not necessarily easy for consumers to follow.

Product Details

EpiQuin Micro contains these ingredients: Hydroquinone USP 4%, Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Emulsifying Wax, Dimethicone Glycerin, C10-30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetyl Ricinoleate, Methyl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Retinol (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Ascorbyl Palmitate, Bisabolol, Cyclomethicone, PEG-10 Soy Sterol, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isopariffin, Laureth-7, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, TEA-Stearate, Cetyl Phosphate, Butylated Hydroxy Touluene, Propyl Gallate, Disodium EDTA, Benzyl Alcohol, Methylparben, Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 20, Triethanolamine, Sodium Metabisulfite.

EpiQuin Micro’s main ingredient is Hydroquinone USP, which they claim reverses depigmentation of the skin, which leads to hyperpigmentation. By reversing the process through hydroquinone USP, dark skin patches are diminished, revealing a youthful appearance and a more uniform skin tone. According to other independent studies, it does help lighten skin, but there is another alarming side effect — the risk of cancer. Hydroquinone is banned in several countries because of its link to cancer, including France. Consumers are strongly advised to speak with a physician before using this product.

The Good

  • Epiquin Micro’s science is legitimate — its main ingredient prevents skin darkening.
  • It is easy to apply.

The Bad

  • EpiQuin Micro is extremely expensive.
  • Its main ingredient seems to increase the risk of cancer.
  • It does not offer any other benefits, such as moisturizing or making the skin softer; this product targets the niche market of users suffering from age spots or other forms of skin discoloration.

Bottom Line

Although its benefits are proven, consumers are advised to weigh the risks before diving into this product. No consumer wants to raise their risk of cancer, but if they really wish to have even, attractive skin, EpiQuin Micro might be a product that is worth a second look. Consumers are strongly advised to seek the opinion of a dermatologist before beginning any skin lightening procedure, and to discuss their concerns with their doctor so they can fully gage which procedure is appropriate.
