The bearberry plant contains alpha arbutin, also known as hydroquinone -D-glucopyranoside, which is a naturally occurring antioxidant and skin brightener. Age spots, freckles, melasma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation are all made to seem better since it inhibits the production of melanin. It is a glycosylated hydroquinone, which means that a sugar molecule has taken the place of one of the hydroquinone's hydroxyl (-OH) groups. The well-studied tyrosinase inhibitor hydroquinone, which is regarded as the gold standard for skin lightening, is associated with risks including skin sensitization, melanocytotoxicity from oxidative byproducts, and exogenous ochronosis (blue-black splotchy pigmentation) as a result of prolonged use.
