  • has this info on skin bleaching creams:
    "One common active ingredient of skin bleaching products is hydroquinone. Per Thomas Hale, PhD (author of Medications and Mothers' Milk), most topicals are so poorly absorbed through the skin that they never really attain significant plasma levels in mom, and so they never end up in milk. This ought to be the case with hydroquinone, as it is know that skin absorption is minimal. "
