Consumer study results

Alpha Arbutin and Butylresorcinol together are potent & safe tyrosinase inhibitors and reduce melanin synthesis, making them very effective for reducing hyperpigmentation. 

90% subjects noticed reduction in hyperpigmentation marks in 8 weeks

90% subjects said skin became clear & even looking in 8 weeks

93% subjects said it reduced sun tanning after 4 weeks of use

Clinical study results

We conducted in-vitro test (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 (called benchmark here).

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 25% more reduction than the benchmark product.

    New formula

    This is my 4th bottle of Alpha Arbutin from Minimalist. The new formula seems to have a peppermint fragrance to it.
