Topical products for melasma
Thank you for your question. Melasma is a condition characterized by the appearace of dark patches on the skin. I have not heard of castor oil being used for melasma treatment. Common topical products used to treat melasma include hydroquinone, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, vitamins C and E, kojic acid, alpha-arbutin, and licorice extract. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
