Alpha Arbutin

Alpha Arbutin Creams & Serums

What is Alpha Arbutin?

Naturally derived from bearberry, cranberry and pear leaves, Alpha Arbutin is a tyrosinase inhibitor. This means that it helps to lighten your skin and is therefore beneficial for fading hyperpigmentation like acne scars, melasma, and age spots.

Which skin types is Alpha Arbutin best for?

This skin lightening agent can be used on all skin types and is best suited for those with hyperpigmentation.

What are the main benefits of Alpha Arbutin?

  • Stops the production of melanin to prevent further pigmentation
  • Brightens your complexion
  • Less side effects than hydroquinone

How to use Alpha Arbutin?

Depending on the product, Alpha Arbutin can either be applied as a spot treatment to the pigmentation areas or on your whole face. Most gels and creams with Alpha Arbutin can be applied up to two times a day.
