Alpha Arbutin is a naturally occurring compound that works as an antioxidant and skin brightener. It is found in many plant sources, such as bearberry, mulberry, and pomegranate. It reduces the formation of dark pigments, thus improving the appearance of age spots, and freckles and reducing pigmentation and spots produced by acne or sun damage.
Unlike other chemical compounds available on the market, Alpha Arbutin is a much safer choice for skincare products. While other more notable compounds are more famous for fading dark spots, Alpha Arbutin is more suited to different kinds of skin types and is safe from distressing side effects. Not only does it
lighten the skin, but it also reduces the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation. It is effective for the treatment of melasma, and enhancing skin tone.
