Alpha arbutin is derived from the bearberry plant, and unlike hydroquinone, it has no negative side effects on the skin. when applied topically, it is known to inhibit tyrosinase activity, and prevent the formation of melanin. dermatologists consider alpha arbutin the safest option to skin lightening and minimizing dark spots.
although it is effective just on its own, when paired with other natural skin lightening agents, such as vitamin c, niacinamide, and kojic acid, it has a much more potent skin lightening effect on the skin. alpha arbutin is a water-soluble compound that can be added to your natural skin lightening lotion/base lotion to create a natural skin lightening effect on the skin.
alpha arbutin powder is compatible with sepiwhite, gigawhite, vitamin c, l-glutathione, kojic acid, and kojic dipalmitate
