Alpha-Arbutin
CAS No.: 84380-01-9

Alpha-Arbutin (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.

Alpha-Arbutin is water soluble and easily incorporated into the water phase of cosmetic formulations. It is stable against hydrolysis as tested in the pH range from 3.5 - 6.6. Suggested concentration: 0.2% when formulated with an exfoliant or penetration enhancer, otherwise up to 2%.

This product is a cosmetic product intended for use on the skin only. Alpha arbutin is not approved for ophthalmic use (use in the eyes) and this ingredient should not be used in products intended to be placed in the eyes!

Our Customers Say...
I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.

Just wanted to say "Thank You" your customer service ROCKS IT!. I ordered a few things, and they were delivered two days later they shipped the day I placed my order. Then today I get a notification that you gave me a credit for postage. WOW, really? That never happens. Thank you for such integrity and excellent customer service.

Everything is in resealable containers and packages,.... and WOW!, they ship soooooo fast! I received my order quicker than an amazon prime order! You've gained a lifetime customer, thank you!
