Is Alpha Arbutin safe for my skin?
"Alpha Arbutin is one of the most stable and safe skin-lightening actives supported by many studies. Unlike other skin lightening actives, Alpha Arbutin inhibits melanin production by binding with tyrosinase without affecting cell viability. Studies show that even 1% of Alpha Arbutin is potent enough to reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots significantly when applied topically daily. At 2% it gives maximum benefits without causing much irritation or dryness"
Can Alpha Arbutin harm the facial skin?
"2% Alpha Arbutin is proven to be safe, and its safety profile is well established by many studies. Although side effects from Alpha Arbutin are rare, we recommend patch tests before starting it for the first time. People with compromised skin, pregnant or breastfeeding women must consult their doctor before adding Alpha Arbutin into their routine."
Can Alpha Arbutin cause sun damage?
Since it inhibits melanin production, it may leave the skin more vulnerable to sunburn (as melanin also protects the skin from sun damage). Therefore never skip the sunscreen.
How to do a patch test?
"1. Clean the area of your upper arm and apply a pea-sized quantity of the product. If you're testing it after a hot shower, wait for 15 minutes to return the skin to its normal state.
2. Massage the product on the skin in a circular motion.
3. Note the result after 24 hours. If you do not experience any redness, itching, bumps or irritation, then you can safely use the product."
who can use this product?
"The mid-20s is a suitable age for using this serum as that's when the first signs of age spots & sun damage in the form of pigmentation might start showing. Alpha Arbutin is a milder alternative to other skin-lightening agents like Kojic Acid. However, people with extra sensitive skin should consult a dermatologist before considering incorporating Alpha Arbutin into their skincare."
