Application of Alpha-Arbutin

  • Whitening and also depigmentation
    Tyrosine is the raw material for the development of melanin, and also tyrosinase is the main rate-limiting enzyme for the conversion of tyrosine to melanin, and also its task establishes the amount of melanin formed. That is, the higher the activity of tyrosinase in the body and also the a lot more material, the simpler it is to develop melanin.

    Arbutin can competitively and reversibly inhibit tyrosinase, consequently hindering the production of melanin as well as accomplishing the effects of whitening, skin-lightening and also blemish removal!

  • Sun block
    α-Arbutin also has the impact of absorbing ultraviolet rays. Some researchers have made unique examinations on sunscreen products included with α-arbutin, and discovered that α-arbutin exhibits ultraviolet absorption capability.

    Furthermore, it has actually been validated by numerous scientific experiments that α-arbutin additionally has certain alleviative effects in regards to anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, as well as anti-oxidation.

    If you make use of skin care products with included α-arbutin, if the result is not apparent, it has to be the problem of inadequate concentration. The dosage of α-arbutin should be 3%. If it is less than this amount, the repressive effect on the catalytic activity of tyrosinase in the skin will be weak, and the whitening effect will certainly not be evident.

Comparison of α-Arbutin and β-Arbutin

Arbutin has two structures: alpha-arbutin and beta-arbutin. α-Arbutin is an epimer of arbutin (β-arbutin), and its oxoside bond is in the opposite direction of the latter in space. The optical rotation of α-arbutin is about 180 degrees. And β-arbutin is about -60 degrees.

According to relevant reports, the biggest difference between the two lies in two points. α-Arbutin is more stable than β-Arbutin. With the increase of temperature, β-Arbutin will be decomposed into hydroquinone, which is toxic to the human body. , α-arbutin will not be decomposed; in terms of whitening effect, the whitening effect of α-arbutin is more than 10 times that of β-arbutin.
