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...
I recently placed an order and part of my order went to the wrong place. I received several personal phone calls along the way from Jen, the mistake was explained, another shipment was sent out right away, and received it within a matter of days. I love the shipping cost adjustments that are normally made with my orders. I love the quality of the products, the packaging, and the new website. Thank you, Jen.

A great experience. Prompt service, delivery in 2 days, box carefully packed with a thank you item, and when shipping costs turned out to be less than estimated, a partial refund. Email communication throughout the transaction really makes this company exceptional... Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much!
