Learn About Alpha Arbutin

Alpha Arbutin

Alpha arbutin is naturally occurring antioxidant and brightening agent that is typically extracted from the bearberry plant. It improves skin tone and fights hyperpigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, the enzyme that controls melanin production in our skin cells.
