The composition according to the invention may especially be a skin care product or a makeup product, especially a foundation. It is commonplace for people with colored skin, or with pigmentation marks, red blotches or shadows under the eyes, to wish to correct these types of cutaneous dyschromia, and for this purpose use cosmetic or dermatological compositions that allow the complexion to be lightened and unified. To this end, it is known practice to use cosmetic compositions containing bleaching agents. However, it is necessary, to use these agents for a prolonged period and in large amounts in order to observe a bleaching effect on the skin.
