Beta arbutin powder description

β- Arbutin is a white and slightly yellowish powder at room temperature. It is easily soluble in water, methanol, ethanol, propylene glycol and glycerol aqueous solutions. After dissolution, there is no precipitation, and it is insoluble in chloroform, ether, petroleum ether, etc. It is added in many whitening products.

Pure alpha arbutin powder production method

It is found in many plants, such as the whole grass of the plant Saxifragon in the family Saxifragon, and the leaves of the plant Vaccinium in the family Rhododendron. It can also be chemically synthesized. After crushing and washing the leaves of arbutin, add water to boil, extract twice, combine the water extract and concentrate it under reduced pressure to a syrup shape, then add methanol to dissolve it, filter out methanol insoluble substances, and recover methanol under reduced pressure to obtain the crude arbutin. If activated carbon is used to decolorize, filter, and recrystallize in water, pure arbutin is obtained.

Arbutin powder function and application

Arbutin is mainly extracted from the leaves of Bear berry, and it can also be found in some fruits and other plants, it has the effect of brightening the skin, rapidly penetrating the skin without affecting skin cells, binding to the tyrosine that causes melanin production, effectively blocking the activity of tyrosinase and the production of melanin, and accelerating the decomposition and elimination of melanin. In addition, arbutin can also protect the skin from free radicals and has excellent hydrophilicity. Therefore, it is often added to commercially available whitening products, especially in Asian countries.

Arbutin is a natural active substance derived from green plants, which combines "green plants, safety and reliability" and "efficient decolorization" as a harmonious and unified skin decolorization component, it can rapidly penetrate into the skin, effectively inhibit the activity of tyrosinase in the skin, and block the formation of melanin without affecting the concentration of cell proliferation. Through its direct combination with tyrosinase, it accelerates the decomposition and excretion of melanin, thereby reducing skin pigment deposition, removing pigmentation and freckles, and producing no toxic, irritant, allergenic, and other side effects on melanocytes. It also has bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effects.
