What Is Alpha Arbutin?
N potent skin lightening agent that has gained popularity in recent days. While experimenting with various other active ingredients, we have found that Alpha arbutin’s effects can be enhanced when layered with certain ingredients.

Retinol + Ahas/Bha
AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid) are all powerful exfoliants. All these ingredients help you get rid of the old, dull, and damaged cells on the surface of your skin and replace them with new, bright, and healthy ones.

But you can exfoliate in the AM and use retinol at night, too.
