Let me say those three magical words - Hydroquinone, Retinol, Mercury. If you’ve been through skin pigmentation or discolouration, you must have been harped on by people about trying all the corrective ingredients in the market and must be familiar with Hydroquinone, Retinol and Mercury for skin lightening.
But guess what? Just like how our ‘lovey dovey’ relationships conclude one day or another (sad life!), your adoration towards them would too once we introduce you to the benefits of Alpha Arbutin - your natural lightening ingredient and your gateway to glowing skin.
Did you know more than 80% of the population undergo skin pigmentation, irrespective of age and gender? Yes, you are not alone! Alpha Arbutin - concentrated from pear and dried leaves of blueberry, cranberry and bearberry shrubs becomes your ultimate upgrade to get rid of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and brightens up your skin. It is a subordinate to those harmful chemicals which are used to treat hyperpigmentation sans its side effects - stinging, burning, skin dryness, skin redness and inflammation and the added guilt of using chemical based treatments.
Now that you’ve been greeted with this skin lightening lifesaver, let us encapsulate its many benefits:
- Tackles skin discolouration/hyperpigmentation - Alpha Arbutin inhibits the chemical activity of tyrosinase which fuels melanin production in the skin. Melanin guides the skin’s pigment and with Alpha Arbutin targeting it, it reduces hyperpigmentation. Moreover, it slowly releases hydroquinone in the skin which filters out its side effects and aims at those pesky dark spots.
- Ideal in skin lightening and brightening - With its anti-antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it unveils the true complexion of the skin resulting in a visibly even-toned face. It hampers UV induced discolouration from further darkening the skin, coming out as your knight in shining armour
- Aids stubborn acne and acne scars - Be it fluctuating hormones, escalating air pollution, inevitable stress or just genetics, pimples and acne can occur on our face, leaving us longing for a clear face. Alpha Arbutin is your holy grail as it not just dries your pimple, but also saves you from those post-zit acne scars. When used religiously, it shows miraculous results in repairing the skin texture as well. Got zit?
- Reduces free radicals - Confused about what are free radicals? They are basically caused either biologically or by external factors like pollutants which cause destruction to our skin cells. Take Alpha Arbutin as your knight in shining armour - as it fights free radical damage - leaving your skin barrier strengthened and makes your skin look youthful with its anti-ageing properties.
