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

Alpha-Arbutin (4- Hydroxyphenyl-α-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 opthalmic use (use in the eyes) and this ingredient should not be used in products intended to be placed in the eyes!  

Recommended Usage Rate: 0.2 - 2%
Appearance: White crystalline powder
Solubility: Soluble in warm or cold water
Storage: Protected from light and humidity in a clean place at room temperature. Once open, handle with care to avoid secondary microbial contamination.
Shelf Life: 3 years

INCI: Alpha-Arbutin

Our Customers Say...
Just got my first order- in just 2 days- and I can't wait to use my new ingredients. Fantastic, fast service.
Sue S.

Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.

I've been bouncing around between your company and others for products like cyclomethicone, etc. You have won out for a number of reasons. I love everything about your company. One problem; I live in NY. And I'm so anxious to get my products. Nevertheless your shipments are received in a very timely fashion. Thanks for the sample of SheaNilotica. It's fabulous.

Wow, quality products and SUPER FAST shipping! I ordered this on a Tuesday, and it was shipped THAT day. I received it just two days later. Just wonderful. Thank you so much!
Jessica

This company is a breath of fresh air! The product quality is excellent, and the customer service is even better. The product descriptions are so thorough that I come here to research new ingredients before I decide to purchase. I'm very thankful and happy to have found this site and will purchase again very soon.
