Similar to β-arbutin, α -arbutin inhibits the production and deposition of melanin, removing spots and freckles. The results showed that α -arbutin could inhibit the activity of tyrosinase at low concentrations, and its inhibitory effect on tyrosinase was better than that of β -arbutin. α arbutin does not produce toxic, irritating, sensitizing, and other side effects on melanocytes, but also has bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effects. Compared with β -arbutin, and deoxyarbutin, α-arbutin has better photostability and solubility.
