Alpha arbutin works by inhibiting tyrosinase activity to reduce the amount of melanin the skin produces. Less tyrosine and less melanin means a more even complexion with less pigmentation, fewer dark spots, and less-noticeable acne scars.


Arbutin is a glycoside phyto-chemical extracted from barberries and other medicinal plants.

Arbutin can even skin tone and brighten the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity and the skin's

production of melanin. Alpha Arbutin is much stronger in effect than Arbutin or Beta Arbutin.

It reduces the appearance of skin pigmentation, softens the apperance of spots and freckles,

and does not cause toxic, irritating, or allergenic effects on melanocytes.



By reducing the appearance of pigmentation spots and puffiness, this booster evens skin tone.

Arbutin is non-irritating, so it is gentle on sensitive skin. It also does not increase the skin's

sensitivity to the sun.


Glutathione accelerates the dissipation of melanin from the skin by inhibiting the dark coloration

caused by tyrosinase. Glutathione binds to Tyrosinase and helps prevent the enzymatic

pathways from producing melanin. It also helps to prevent the activation of Tyrosinase by

reducing free radicals in the body that can increase melanin production. With its ability to

eliminate the free radicals that damage the skin at the cellular level to cause aging and

discoloration, Glutathione brightens the skin back to its purest, fairest tone.
