Bearberry(Uva Ursi)  - Derived from the leaves of the Uva Ursi plant, bearberry extract is a natural source of arbutin, a powerful skin lightener.

  • Bearberry extract is 100% natural and provides the same benefits as professional lightening creams, without the nasty chemical side effects.
  • Arbutin is a naturally-occurring cousin of hydroquinone – a highly effective but controversial synthetic skin bleaching agent. Like hydroquinone, arbutin works to whiten your skin by inactivating tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for producing melanin.
  • The difference is that arbutin is a totally natural, botanical-based compound that has the same skin whitening benefits as synthetic hydroquinone – without the side effects or risks.

    • Licochalcone is 100% safe for sensitive skin.

The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published a clinical study that has shown that glabridin can inhibit the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase by as much as 50% – and without damaging skin cells! Licorice extract is effective in treating post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (including dark spots), can also be used to reverse the damage caused by acne scars, and contains anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe the skin and reduce redness.

How it works: 

Like most effective skin lighteners, it blocks the activity of tyrosinase, the enzyme that signals your skin to produce more melanin than needed. By stopping the excess flow of melanin, the darker hue eventually fades off. It has powerful antioxidant properties that help your skin fight off wrinkles.

 Side effects: 

Bearberry extract is VERY strong and can cause uneven lightening if used undiluted, which is why we’ve added Licorice root and other botanical extracts to give your skin even skin lightening.

Anyone looking for an alternative to chemical filled skin lightening creams, or simply a pure, natural remedy to treat age spots, sun spots, freckles, acne scars and melasma.

    This formula contains vitamins and antioxidants that protect skin against environmental damage and provides continuous protection against the elements.
