Health Benefits:

   Arbutin is the active substance originated from natural plant which can whiten and lighten skin.

   Alpha Arbutin can infiltrate into the skin quickly without affecting the concentration of cell multiplication and effectively prevent   activity of tyrosinase in the skin and the forming of melanin. By combined arbutin with tyrosinase, decomposition and drainage of melanin are accelerated, splash and fleck can be got ride of and no side effects are caused.

   Alpha Arbutin is one of the safest and most efficient whitening materials that are popular at present.

   Alpha Arbutin is also the most competitive whitening activity in the 21st century.

   Arbutin is a glycoside; a glycosylated hydroquinone extracted from the bearberry plant in the genus Arctostaphylos. It inhibits tyrosinase and thus prevents the formation of melanin. Arbutin is therefore used as a skin-lightening agent. Arbutin is found in wheat, and is concentrated in pear skins. It is also found in Bergenia crassifolia. Arbutin was also produced by an in vitro culture of Schisandra chinensis.

   Bearberry,which contains arbutin, is a traditional treatment for urinary tract infections.

   Bearberry extract is used in skin lightening treatments designed for long term and regular use. An active agent in brands of skin lightening preparations, it is more expensive than traditional skin lightening ingredients like hydroquinone, which is now banned in many countries. In vitro studies of human melanocytes exposed to arbutin at concentrations below 300 μg/mL reported decreased tyrosinase activity and melanin content with little evidence of cytotoxicity.
