The in-vitro studies have been supplemented with extensive in-vivo testing to support the following claims / benefits:
- Ensures an even, lighter skin tone
- Helps to minimize the appearance of liver spots
- Reduces the degree of skin tanning after UV exposure
ALPHA-ARBUTIN showed superior performance (in-vivo) to traditional lightening agents such as kojic acid and hydroquinone, is recommended for up to 2% use level and is ideal for skin lightening products, even skin tone and age spot treatments and also make-up such as BB/CC creams.
