All natural ingredients abound in the current skin health market. It has become a strong selling point for many products that wish to offer little to no negative side effects to their customer base. In spite of this trend, many skin care products, specifically skin brightening creams, contain Hydroquinone – an often dangerous skin brightening agent that has the potential to greatly harm your skin. Hydroquinone is the only FDA-approved skin-lightening ingredient in the US and it works by preventing melanin production. Products with this compound are not recommended for use, and come with a range of negative skin effects. The largest being that Hydroquinone is a carcinogen, or canern causing chemical. Do you wish to know more about which products do and not use Hydroquinone?
So, the question is, Will Maxi-Peel with its three different formulas be a perfect fit for you?
Splash Manufacturing Corp is the mind and science behind Maxi-Peel, an exfoliating anti-acne solution that also treats skin discoloration from hyper-pigmentation. Composed of two main elements, Hydroquinone and Tretinoin, this powerful solution can be purchased in one of three different strengths, the first being for mild cases of acne, the second for moderate, and the third for severe breakouts and uneven skin tone. The Maxi-Peel brand has also evolved in several ways. In terms of product portfolio, it has greatly expanded to cater to the various skin care needs of its customer base, extending its lines not only to the face, but also to the body. Its product lines now consist of various formats apart from an Exfoliant Solution, such as Exfoliant Cream, Facial Cleanser, Facial Wash, Exfoliant Scrub, Exfoliant Soap, and Exfoliant Lotion. Splash Manufacturing Corp recommends the use of its entire line for the strongest results, but at the same time warns of the dangers to your skin if more than one product is used at once. This is perhaps why Maxi-Peel is not offered in free trials, as mixing and matching the different products can cause serious side effects. In terms of price, Maxi-Peel ranges from $16.95 to $21.98 – the price often higher when considering shipping and handling costs.
One of the few positive aspects of Maxi-Peel is its website. Very easy to navigate and filled with information on Maxi-Peel's effectiveness at reducing acne breakouts and lightening the skin, this products main site is very user friendly. If it works the way it's said to, Maxi-Peel will deliver results in just a week, leaving your skin smooth and bright.
There are no free trial samples for this product, neither is there a money back guarantee to protect your investment. In spite of all the information offered on their website, the full list of ingredients in this anti-acne skin lightening product are nowhere to be found. This product has also not undergone any kind of scientific or clinical testing. This product cannot be used by women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant. Given the amount of products in the Maxi-Peel line, it may become very expensive to keep up with buying each of the six products. Last but not least, Maxi-Peel uses Hydroquinone, a dangerous and often times avoided ingredient that has been proven to cause cancer in the skin.
The ingredients in this product can be found to the right.

Any skin-lightening products containing hydroquinone would be considered new drugs, according to newly proposed FDA regulations. The products would require FDA approval before being sold to the public and would only be available with a doctor's prescription. Maxi-Peel has not been put through any rigorous FDA tests, neither has it been put through any third party clinical or scientific testing that proves it is wholly safe for use. Given that it, also, does not offer its customers free samples, a money back guarantee, or solutions without Hydroquinone, we cannot recommend Maxi-Peel for use at this time.
