What is Minimalist® Alpha Arbutin Face Serum?
A skin tone enhancing serum with a potent and safe skin lightening active Alpha Arbutin (9 times more effective than Beta Arbutin) that ensures even tone in 5 weeks.
Butylresorcinol can strongly inhibit the activity of tyrosinase, resulting in a reduction of hyperpigmentation & age spots. Found to have 20 times more potent inhibitory activity than Kojic Acid in a clinical study.
Ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant and can neutralize several different types of free radicals. Helps in protecting and also reversing damage caused by UV rays.
An ultra-light formula that easily absorbs into the skin is also proven to reduce the degree of sun tanning to a great extent after UV exposure, resulting in clear, radiant skin.
Formulated with the most effective Alpha Arbutin, sourced from Alfa Aesar, USA.
Minimalist conducted an in-vitro test (a lab test) on skin-identical model to evaluate the efficacy of this product in comparison to an Alpha Arbutin 2% serum from an international brand that offers active-based products. Minimalist Alpha Arbutin 2% Serum reduced melanin concentration significantly higher than the benchmark product. While the benchmark product reduced melanin by 56%, Minimalist Alpha Arbutin 2% reduced melanin concentration by 70%. That is a 25% reduction from the benchmark product.
