Arbutin Powder is currently one of the safest and most effective whitening ingredients that are popular abroad and mainly used in cosmetics. Arbutin is typically found in a variety of skincare products, including serums, moisturizers, toners, and masks.

According to the different directions of glycosidic bonds in space, Arbutin can be divided into Beta Arbutin and Alpha Arbutin, both of which have exactly the same molecular formula and different spatial structures. The preparation method of Alpha Arbutin is obtained through sugar conversion by microbial enzymes. Its stability, effectiveness, and safety are better than Beta Arbutin, and its whitening effect is 10 times that of Beta Arbutin. It has been widely used by many cosmetic brands in the world.

α-arbutin application

The difference between Arbutin Powder and Beta Arbutin:

1) Difference instability: α-arbutin will not decompose at a high temperature of 100°; β-arbutin will decompose a little over 60°. Under the condition of pH = 5.2-8.0, there is no decomposition in α-arbutin solution, but beta-arbutin is decomposed. So overall, the stability of alpha-arbutin is better than beta arbutin.

2) The physical and chemical properties of α-arbutin and β-arbutin are basically similar. They are epimers of each other, but their optical rotations are very different. The value of α-arbutin is positive (+174.0~ +184.0°), while β-arbutin has a negative value (-64°~-68°), which is also the biggest difference and way of judgment between the two.

3) The price of α-arbutin is higher than β-arbutin, but the whitening effect is 10 times higher than that of β-arbutin.

4) β-arbutin exists in nature, but α-arbutin does not exist.
