Alpha Arbutin + Tranexamic acid

Using Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic acid together can have a synergistic effect on the skin, particularly for reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and promoting a more even skin tone.

Alpha Arbutin is a natural skin brightening agent that works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. By reducing melanin production, Alpha Arbutin can help fade dark spots, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. It is also considered a gentler alternative to hydroquinone, a skin lightening agent that can be irritating to some skin types.

Tranexamic acid is a synthetic amino acid that has been shown to have skin brightening and anti-inflammatory effects. It works by inhibiting the production of plasmin, an enzyme that can contribute to the formation of pigmentation in the skin. Tranexamic acid has been used as a treatment for melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation that is often difficult to treat.

When used together, Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic acid can complement each other's effects and provide a more powerful solution for reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Both ingredients are considered safe and effective for most skin types, but it's always best to consult with a dermatologist before adding any new products to your skincare routine, especially if you have sensitive skin or a history of skin allergies. As with any new skincare product, it's recommended to do a patch test before applying to your entire face to check for any adverse reactions.

How to use

How to Use Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic Acid Serum in Professional Treatments:

  1. Begin by cleansing your client's face thoroughly with a gentle facial cleanser and patting it dry.

  2. Examine your client's skin to determine if Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic Acid Serum is an appropriate treatment option. This serum is best suited for clients with hyperpigmentation, dark spots, melasma, or uneven skin tone.

  3. Apply a small amount of the serum to a clean cotton pad and gently wipe it over the client's face, neck, and décolleté. Avoid the eye area.

  4. Allow the serum to absorb fully before applying any other skincare products or makeup.

  5. Depending on your client's skin type and condition, you may choose to incorporate Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic Acid Serum into a more comprehensive treatment plan. For example, you may use it as a pre-treatment step before a chemical peel or microdermabrasion.

  6. Instruct your client to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen for at least 24 hours after the treatment to prevent UV damage.


  • As with any professional treatment, it's important to obtain a complete medical history from your client and perform a skin analysis to determine the best course of treatment.

  • Always perform a patch test before using the serum on your client's face. Apply a small amount to a discreet area of skin, such as behind the ear, and wait 24 hours to check for any signs of irritation or allergic reaction.

  • For best results, incorporate Alpha Arbutin and Tranexamic Acid Serum into a comprehensive skincare regimen that includes regular exfoliation, moisturizing, and sun protection.
