Garden of Wisdom Alpha Arbutin 2% and Kojic Acid 1% Serum: an advanced skin brightening & lightening serum to improve the appearance of age spots, freckles and other hyperpigmentation skin concerns.
Alpha Arbutin and Kojic Acid Serum helps correct uneven skin tone, age spots, freckles, melasma and hyperpigmentation. Alpha Arbutin serum is a natural alternative to hydroquinone which can cause inflammation. Containing high strengths of both Alpha Arbutin and Kojic Acid, this lightweight skin lightening serum penetrates the cell layers to inhibit pigment formation and ensure even distribution of melanin.
A professional formula, Alpha Arbutin serum also contains niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, and Paper Mulberry both of which help correct uneven skin tone to reveal a clearer complexion.
Benefits of Alpha Arbutin skin whitening serum
Alpha Arbutin - derived from the leaves of the bearberry plant, alpha arbutin inhibits the production of tyrosinase, an enzyme which controls the amount of pigment produced by the pigment cells.
Kojic Acid - a natural product derived from mushrooms, Kojic Acid has been used successfully to lighten age spots and skin discolouration. Kojic Acid also displays powerful antioxidant properties helping to protect skin against free radical damage.
Niacinamide - Unlike arbutin and Kojic Acid, niacinamide works to block the transfer of pigment onto skin's surface that contributes to skin darkening.
Sodium Ascorbyl Palmitate (SAP) - a stable and bioavailable form of Vitamin C, this derivative lightens skin tone and fades discolouration by inhibiting pigment production.
Paper Mulberry - several studies indicate that mulberry extracts inhibit the formation of melanin pigment. Studies indicate that a small concentration of Paper Mulberry extract suppressed pigment production by an astonishing 50% when compared to hydroquinone.
Marked changes in the skin's pigment production results in undesirable hyperpigmentation concerns such as age spots and an uneven skin tone which can add years to one's perceived age. Alpha Arbutin and Kojic Acid Serum reduces the visual appearance of age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation which translates into radiant, even-toned radiant skin. This serum has a pH range 7.6 -7.7.
All Garden of Wisdom products are cruelty free, suitable for vegetarians and free from alcohol and silicones. Garden of Wisdom uses as few ingredients as possible to allow the actives to reach the deeper layers of skin to produce a physiological change.
Directions: Apply a sufficient amount of alpha arbutin serum to cover the face onto cleansed skin both in the morning and evening. Can be used with other serums.
