Monobenzone is a depigmenting agent. It works by increasing elimination of melanin (pigment molecules) from skin cells.
Monobenzone topical (for the skin) is used to permanently lighten skin in people with vitiligo. Depigmenting darker skin around the areas of vitiligo helps even out coloring and appearance of the skin.
Monobenzone is not for treating freckles, café-au-lait spots, sun damage, melanoma, jaundice, or other pigmentation disorders not caused by vitiligo.
Monobenzone may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
