FAQ's Alpha Arbutin

IS THIS SUITABLE FOR DRY SKIN? 

Yes! it has been formulated with Squalene so it is great for drier skin types 


IS THERE ANYTHING TO AVOID WHEN USING THIS? 

Alpha Arbutin can be used with all of our products! 


WILL THIS CAUSE ANY SUN SENSITIVITY? 

No but ensure that you are wearing SPF daily so that you do not hinder the results and to make sure the dark spots do not linger


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION?

Hyperpigmentation is simply the over production of melanin by skin cells called melanocytes which creates darker patches on the skin and can occur all over the body including the face

Learn more about Hyperpigmentation, its causes and how to treat in our Hyperpigmentation 101 blog >


WHAT ELSE CAN HELP TREAT AND PREVENT  HYPERPIGMENTATION?

 Ingredients such as Tranexamic Acid and Rosehip Oil are specific to targeting hyperpigmentation by focusing on lifting the specifically darkened areas whilst Vitamin C based products can brighten the overall skin tone. Retinoids/Retinol also have a beneficial impact by speeding up the regeneration of the skin so these patches pass through the surface quicker.   Unprotected sun exposure can cause existing areas of hyperpigmentation to further darken and new areas of hyperpigmentation to form. We’d suggest protecting your skin with a broad spectrum SPF daily to help combat this.

Not Perfect But Not Bad

Will this help with hyperpigmentation? Yes. Will it solve things overnight? No. (Don't think there is a product like that - correct me if I'm wrong.) With many years of experience with hyperpigmentation, this product will help things fade quicker but some might take more time. I would say that it's about 60% effective with initial reduction of hyperpigmentation. (I had an old spot on my cheek that went away fairly fast with this. A new one that faded quickly but not completely yet. One that it didn't do much with. I have been using this product twice daily for almost 3 months now.)

I'm on my second bottle now. The first seemed to come out much faster which wasn't good as I got more product than I needed. I only needed a pea-size. This one seems better. Not sure if the hole in the bottle was slightly bigger or the formula a little runnier than this. (I would prefer that it was in a cylinder container like the other treatments. I tend to have better control with those ones.)

As for the ingredients, they do not irritate my sensitive, eczema-prone skin. One thing to look out for if you have fungal acne issues is that it does have Polysorbate 60 in it. As for comedogenic ingredients, there is Butylene Glycol and Squalane (which are both ones on the scale, so not much concerned there.) From what I could tell, there are no allergens, gluten, parabens, fragrance, silicones, alcohols, PEGs, or sulfates in this product. I won't go into details about the other ingredients because I am…

I wish I didn't buy two of them

Bought this product about a month ago and I've been using it since but every time I use it my skin feels irritated. I can't describe it but there's a sting to it. At first I thought my skin would adjust but nope still hasn't happened. Sometimes it even itches a little and then I have to run for a next products that will soothe the irritation. I will say though it does absorb fast and non-greasy. If you have oily acne prone skin like I do it's worth a shot trying if you know you're skin isn't very sensitive. If it is be careful!
