Alpha Arbutin Powder (4- Hydroxyphenyl-±-D-glucopyranoside) is a pure, water-soluble, biosynthetic active ingredient. Alpha-Arbutin blocks epidermal melanin synthesis by inhibiting enzymatic oxidation of Tyrosine and Dopa. Arbutin appears to have fewer side effects than hydroquinone at similar concentrations – presumably due to the more gradual release. It is the more effective, faster, and safer approach to promoting skin-brightening and an even skin tone on all skin types. Alpha-Arbutin also minimizes liver spots and meets all the requirements of a modern skin-brightening and skin-depigmentation product.
Cosmetic Benefits of Alpha Arbutin Powder:
- Arbutin is a much safer, more natural derivative of hydroquinone, and topical treatment of arbutin has been shown to treat melasma as well as severe dark areas. All the power without the bad side effects.
- Arbutin is a cosmeceutical that fades hyper-pigmentation meaning it works to fade sun spots, age spots, acne scars, and melasma. Plus, arbutin prevents future freckles and hyperpigmentation from developing, even after a sunburn
- Arbutin evens and brightens your complexion making your skin look healthier and vibrant. Think of it like the skin care beauty blender – arbutin is literally blends out your actual skin. Arbutin reveals your inner beaming, beautiful angel face, and we’re so down with that.
