Is it okay to use Cosmelan 2 even if it's already expired?

Expiration Dates

I would advise against using a product which has expired. The product contains hydroquinones which should definitely not be used after it expires.

Can I use expired Cosmelan 2

+1
It's not the best idea to use a cosmetic product after expiration dates. 1. The concentration and strength of the active ingredients is compromised, and 2. It could actually negatively affect your skin.
