Deoxyarbutin, a synthetic form of arbutin without the hydroxyl moiety, provides a promising treatment for reducing skin hyperpigmentation. The effect for inhibition of the enzyme tyrosine is 10 times compare with hydroquinone, 150 times compare with kojic acid, 350 times compare with beta arbutin, 38.5 times with alpha arbutin.
It is very delicate material which is easily oxidized. In order to prevent the oxidation of deoxyarbutin and keep the formula effective, the use of antioxidant agent is highly recommended, such as add anti-oxidant: Sodium metabisulfite (0.01-1.0 %)
