In brief: Oxidative stress

Means your cells are stressed with chemical compunds above the cell ability to fight those compounds.
The bleaching cream contains highly reactive chemical compunds which increase the oxydative stress. This equals in chronic time use with premature aging, wrinkle formation, possible discoloration and thinning of the skin.
