Alpha-Arbutin is a natural lightening ingredient that blocks epidermal melanin biosynthesis by inhibiting enzymatic oxidation of tyrosine and dopa. It is an alternative to prescription lightening medications such as hydroquinone and kojic acid. One of the prime sources for Alpha-Arbutin is an evergreen bush called the bearberry. Alpha-Arbutin can be up to 10 times more effective than other lightening products, without the negative side effects typically found in skin-lightening agents such as hydroquinone. It is faster, more effective, and a safer approach to promoting skin brightening and even skin tone for all skin types
