    What Does Inactive Ingredients Mean

    Nadinola helps to remove discoloration on the skin and it is able to do this because it contains hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a skin depigmenting agent that is made synthetically in a powder form.
    The active ingredient that helps to remove discoloration in Nadinola is hydroquinone.

    What Does Inactive Ingredients Mean
    Inactive Ingredients - Inactive ingredient are added to a product to make it more usable or allow the body to process it better.

    Since hydroquinone is the active ingredient in Nadinola but hydroquinone comes in naturally in a raw crystalline powder form, it cannot be applied to the body easily so other ingredients which are the inactives have to be mixed with hydroquinone so that it is easier to apply it to the body.
