Arbutin introduces a glucose molecule into the molecule, which reduces the stimulation effect, and has the ability to interfere with melanocytes and dilute the formed melanin. , has a very good curative effect.

Alpha-arbutin, similar to arbutin, can inhibit the production and deposition of melanin, and remove pigmentation and freckles. Studies have shown that alpha-Arbutin can inhibit the activity of tyrosinase at a relatively low concentration, and its inhibitory effect on tyrosinase is better than that of arbutin, but the price is slightly higher.

alpha-Arbutin is recommended for whitening creams, lotions and masks.
