Alpha-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.
Clinical practice shows that Alpha-Arbutin has much more powerful
Whitening ability if compare with Beta- Arbutin ,it’s neerly 15
times of Whitening ability stronger than Beta-Arbutin
1. Skin lighten,Whiten and dispell fleck,
2. Prevent ultraviolet radiation.
3. Enhance immune system.
4. It is good for our enteric disease.
5. It can be used as the antiphlogistic & analgesic function
agents for burn repairing agent /scar removing agent in cosmetics
and medical application field
Alpha-Arbutin protects the skin against damage caused by free
radicals. Alpha-Arbutin is a skin whitening agent which is very
popular in Japan and other Asian countries for skin
de-pigmentation, Arbutin inhibits the formation of melanin pigment
by inhibiting Tyrosinase activity. Arbutin is very safe skin agent
for external use which does not have toxicity, stimulation,
unpleasant odor or side effect such as Hydroqinone.The
encapsulation of Arbutin constitute a delivery system to
potentialize the effect in time. Arbutin is a way to incorporate
the hydrophilic Arbutin in lipophilic media. Arbutin give three
main properties; Whitening effects, anti- age effect and UVB/ UVC
Back in the 18th century, Alpha Arbutin was first used in medical
areas as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. Alpha
Arbutin was used particularly for cystitis, urethritis and
pyelitis. These uses still until today where natural medicine uses
only natural ingredients to treat any disease. Also Alpha Arbutin
may be used to repress the virulence of bacterial pathogens and to
prevent contaminating bacteria, Alpha Arbutin is also used for
treating allergic inflammation of the skin . More recently, Alpha
Arbutin has been used to prevent pigmentation and to whiten the
skin beautifully. In the meanwhile, Alpha Arbutin can be used to
whiten the skin, to prevent liver spots and freckles, to treat
sunburn marks and to regulate melanogenesis.
