Deoxyarbutin is also an anti-oxidant making it a good ingredients for anti-ageing treatments.
Deoxyarbutin is a very delicate material which is easily oxidized (Water increases the decomposition of Deoxyarbutin water based formulations. In order to prevent the oxidation of Deoxyarbutin and keep the formula effective, the use of anti-oxidant agent is highly recommended. Anti-oxidant: Active-Shield atm 0.01-1.0 % is helpful. For much higher stability, choose silicone or oil-based, anhydrous system for a relatively stable surrounding that delays its degradation.
