Skin whitening. What ingredients give the most visible results and when it becomes dangerous?

I would like to start a topic that many members of the forum will find interesting. Skin whitening. I don’t use word “brightening”, because I would like to discuss the ingredients that give visible results. It is a multi-billion dollar industry all over the world and we all heard about dangerous practices such as using 20% of hydroquinone. Not touching the ethical side of this issue, I would like the professionals on the forum to give their opinion on the following:

1)      What ingredients give the most visible results

2)      Should there be any differences in whitening products for Caucasian skin and Ethnic skin (different ingredients maybe?)

3)      When it becomes OTC?

4)      At what point it becomes dangerous?

Thank you all in advance!
