β-Arbutin can be extracted by plant cell culture and artificial synthesis, enzyme transformation and plant extraction, etc.

Generally, alpha arbutin white powder can only undergo sugar transfer reaction through the enzymes of different microorganisms, allowing one molecule of glucose to combine with one molecule of hydroquinone to form a single α-arbutin. Stability, efficacy and safety are superior to β-arbutin.

α-Arbutin can quickly penetrate deep into the skin and inhibit the activity of tyrosinase in the pigment mother cells deep in the stratum corneum. And it forms a double effect on the surface of the skin, inhibiting the production of melanin.
