Alpha Arbutin
Enlighten your skin with
radiant brightness

For decades, possessing a lighter skin color has been known as a characteristic of elegance and superiority. In an effort to find a safer alternative to hydroquinone and other harmful skin lighteners, extensive research culminated in the discovery of α-arbutin. It acts by inhibiting tyrosinase activity and melanosome maturation. It is one of the most popular skin lightening ingredients in the world at present and has been used in the treatment of many hyperpigmentation disorders. α-arbutin has a high market value due to its wide applicability in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

How It Works

Arbutin is a naturally occurring skin lightening agent and has been found in the species of various plant families such as marjoram, cranberry, blueberry, and several pear species. The production of melanin is effectively reduced by arbutin by inhibiting the tyrosinase enzyme. Arbutin exists in its two isoforms, namely α-arbutin and β-arbutin. Both α and β-arbutin have different rotation configurations but the same chemical formula structure. β-arbutin is generally extracted from leaves of various plants and fruit peels. These compounds protect skin from sun-induced pigmentation and free radicals without increasing the skin's sensitivity to sun exposure. It lightens skin tone by fading discoloration caused by inflammation and environmental stress. It also addresses glycation, sugar-induced skin sallowness, and loss of elasticity!

What The Studies Show

α-Arbutin is one of the most widely used skin lightening agents and less toxic as compared to hydroquinone. It is hydrophilic in nature and has a log P value of − 1.49 and therefore exhibits poor permeation across the skin. To overcome poor permeability issues of α-arbutin, very recently, attempted to develop dissolvable and hydrogel forming. Owing to the advantages offered by α-arbutin as compared to the other harmful skin lightening agents, there is an urgent demand to improve the penetration and permeation of α-arbutin across the skin by developing various novel delivery systems such as microneedles, nanosystems, microsystems, lipidic systems, etc.

Study Results

α-arbutin has emerged as a popular alternative to other harmful skin lightening agents because of its outstanding capability to reduce hyperpigmentation without any unwanted side effects. Today, with massive growth in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry, its supply and demand are increasing exponentially. Currently, α-arbutin is found as the main ingredient in a wide range of skin lightening products such as creams, serums, face washes, gels, and lotions. More comprehensive research investigating the long-term effects and complexities of α-arbutin products is recommended since they can pose a risk to the population using skin lightening products. In this review, we have aimed to highlight α-arbutin as a safer alternative to many other harmful skin lightening agents as the abuse of skin bleaching agents remains prevalent worldwide.
