  • Source of Alpha Arbutin  

Bearberry plant (Latin name is Arctostaphyllos Uva Ursi) is also known as the beargrape plant or mountain cranberry. Another term for bearberry extract is uva ursi extract. 

Bearberry extract is reputed to have antibacterial and antioxidant properties that may be beneficial for cleansing the skin and improving its appearance. It is thought by some to increase cell turnover rate, thus shedding old skin cells which do not reflect light as smoothly and make the skin look dull. It is commonly used as an astringent in cosmetic preparations and skin care products. Astringents are cleansers that remove dirt and oil from the skin's pores. It is also used as a lightening agent to fade freckles or skin discoloration which may be caused by sun damage or hormonal conditions.

Alpha Arbutin differs from Beta Arbutin

     Alpha arbutin used to inhibit the activity of tyrosinase in the body, prevent the formation of melanin, then reduce the skin pigment deposition, remove spots and freckles. Bearberry extract alpha arbutin powder also has sterilization, anti-inflammatory effect. Mainly used in high-end cosmetics.

    Beta arbutin is used as diuretics in pharmaceutical industry, whitening ingredient in cosmetic industry and the development stabilizer in color photography.

Alpha Arbutin differs from Hydroquinone

Hydroquinone and arbutin are the two active components thought able to reduce skin pigmentation. Hydroquinone can inhibit skin producing melanin that is a pigment determining a skin's color. Arbutin is also reported to have melanin-inhibiting properties but not to the same extent as hydroquinone. However, arbutin is thought to be less irritating to the skin and is used more frequently in cosmetics. Hydroquinone is recognized by the United States Food and Drug Administration as a bleaching agent.

Alpha Arbutin differs from other Cosmetic ingredients

Other ingredients in skin creams designed to lighten skin must legally be called skin brighteners or skin whiteners. Although cosmetic companies may tout the benefits of bearberry or uva ursi extract, there is no definitive scientific proof that the amounts may be enough to lighten a skin discoloration or change the appearance of the skin.
