All About Alpha Arbutin

1. Melanin inhibition

Sun exposure, genetics, and inflammation can cause your skin to overproduce melanin, the prime reason for the appearance of dark spots, pigmentation, and tan. Alpha arbutin inhibits the production of melanin, thereby reducing the darkening of the skin.

2. Brightens skin

Alpha arbutin is known for its brightening traits that reduce dark spots, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation, giving you an even, radiant skin tone.

3. Safe for skin

Alpha arbutin is your reliable buddy when it comes to brightening your skin and fading pigmentation. Unlike other tough actives, alpha arbutin is a safer and milder alternative. An additional benefit of using this ingredient is that it doesn’t react with any other active ingredients, rather, works better when layered with them.

4. Gentle on skin

Apart from fading spots and hyperpigmentation, it slowly but effectively releases hydroquinone on the skin, making it less irritating and thus perfect for all skin types.
