Hydroquinone VS Alpha Arbutin


  • Hydroquinone works by killing the cells that produce pigmentation and melanin.
  • Products that contain 2% or lower of hydroquinone are sold in U.S
  • Some evidence suggest that hydroquinone can be irritating on skin and may also act as carcinogen.

Alpha Arbutin

  • Alpha Arbutin inhibits the enzymes that stimulate pigment-producing cells.
  • It is safe to use Alpha Arbutin with only 2% concentration or lower.
  • Alpha Arbutin is less irritating and is considered much safer than hydroquinone.

Is Alpha Arbutin the best alternative to Hydroquinone?

Alpha-Arbutin has been proven to have superior results, even when compared to its chemically similar molecules, hydroquinone, and beta-arbutin. In addition to higher efficacy, it also boasts a better safety profile compared to hydroquinone and is more stable when compared to beta-arbutin.

Why to use ALPHA ARBUTIN with NIACINAMIDE for hyperpigmentation?

  • Both inhibits melanin that helps treat pigmentation on skin.
  • Both are gentle and work on hyperpigmentation, dullness and dark spots.
  • Niacinamide prevents transfer of melanin that reduces the occurrence of pigmentation.
  • Alpha Arbutin suppresses tyrosine thus slowing down the process of hyperpigmentation.
