Alpha Arbutin can be used by all skin tones as it does not change your skin color but evens out your complexion. It lightens the areas that are darker such as age spots, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, etc. due to excessive melanin production, resulting in a natural even skin tone.
Alpha Arbutin is an advanced molecule and does not cause cell cytotoxicity; thus it is a safe skin lightening active suitable for all skin tones.

The early-20s is a suitable age for using Alpha Arbutin, as that's when the first signs of age spots & sun damage in the form of pigmentation might start showing.
Alpha Arbutin is a milder alternative to other agents like Kojic Acid (which has high cytotoxicity) and is safe to use. However, people with extra sensitive skin should consult a dermatologist before considering incorporating Alpha Arbutin into their skincare.
Both males and females with skin concerns like blemishes, acne scars, dark spots, and uneven skin tone can benefit from Alpha Arbutin.

Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should not use this product without consulting their healthcare provider first.
