Product feature application

Tyrosinase Inhibitory Activity

For the activity of alpha-arbutin and beta-arbutin, the test was carried out on a human skin cell decomposition solution.

Up to 50 units of inhibitory activity:

Beta arbutin: IC50 = 9.0 m Mol; Alpha Arbutin: IC50 = 1.0 m Mol

The results showed that alpha arbutin has 9 times higher inhibitory activity against tyrosinase than beta arbutin.

A skin whitening study on 60 Chinese descent women demonstrated that an emulsion containing 1% alpha arbutin resulted in a faster and more pronounced skin lightening effect after 28 days when compared with kojic acid and β-arbutin at  1% use levels. The parameter L which represents the lightness of skin was determined by means of chromameter.

The results showed that the whitening effect is alpha arbutin> kojic acid> beta arbutin at concentration 1%.

Liver Spot Study

In a three month study on 40 female volunteers showed that 2% alpha arbutin was used in a cream formulation to minimize liver spots. The study demonstrated that alpha arbutin is much more effective than beta arbutin in minimizing liver spot. After 3 month of usage, over 50% of the cases showed significant improvement in liver spots, a percentage higher than the β-arbutin group.
