- WHAT AM I
A milky, microbiome-friendly toner that hydrates, softens and enlivens for more even skin tone and less hyperpigmentation marks while prepping to improve the look of sallow and dry skin with added vibrancy.
- WHY PICK ME
Alpha Arbutin, derived from Arbutin (sometimes referred to as “natural hydroquinone”) traditionally extracted from bearberry plants, is a skin-lightening and depigmenting agent that mimics hydroquinone in the reversion of melanin generation but with a much better safety profile and none of the irritation or cytotoxicity connected to it: making this a very reliable option for treating and preventing various pigmentation issues including post-blemish redness, age spots and pink/purple scarring – no matter your skin type or age.
Unlike hydroquinone which exhibits a fatal reaction to melanocytes (by killing the cells that makes pigment), we uses stabilised α-Arbutin – being approximately ten times more effective than β-Arbutin – that inhibits only tyrosinases activity (through blocking the enzymatic conversion that catalyses melanin synthesis) which is activated anytime the skin comes into contact with UV light to effectively limit and slow your melanin production and melanosome maturation: reducing the degree of discoloration while also fighting glycation for a healthy, uniform glow.
Enhanced with Meadowfoam Seed Oil, an extremely stable and non-comedogenic neutral oil from highly renewable crop with a low carbon footprint composed of mostly fatty acids and antioxidants with a great skin feel, to seal in moisture and rejuvenate without any greasiness. Supported by Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, a bio-selective substrate that stimulates the beneficial skin flora as well as antimicrobial peptides release to reinforce your skin’s natural immune defense; alongside Hydroxyacetophenone, a multifunctional soothing antioxidant to protect against the effects of oxidative stress.

Good to Know
Our skin is a barrier that serves as one of the body’s first and most important line of defence. Having a well-balanced skin microbiota and keeping your resident skin microbiome in a great condition can not only improve the skin’s health and function at its source but also help make sure that you’re on the right path to happy, resilient skin. A strong and uncompromised skin barrier will be able to keep moisture in and irritants out, and effortlessly shield against inflammation and infection while diminishing the risk of many skin issues such as dehydration, sensitivity, premature aging and more.
Alpha-Arbutin is suitable for use on all skin tones, irrespective of your natural skin colour, as it neither bleaches skin nor destroys melanin but works to lighten areas that are darkened due to excessive melanin production (i.e. non-normal pigmentation) and help manage the uneven tones to create an overall more balanced, harmonious complexion.
Try this on other parts of your body that are prone to dark spots or discoloration too – underarms, elbows, even bikini lines!
Always do a patch test first. Discontinue use and consult a doctor if irritation occurs.
