*Note:

An amazing array of beneficial chemicals make Arctostaphylos Uva-Ursi (Latin for bearberry) a veritable pharmacy, including arbutin (inhibitor of melanin synthesis), allantoin (anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, keratolytic), betulinic acid (skin lightener, anticancer), ellagic acid (cancer preventive), lupeol (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory), gallic acid (antibacterial), ursolic acid (anticancer), and more.

Arbutin is the active found in Shiseido Whitess.

Bearberry does not dissolve easily. The best solvent is a 35% ethanol in water solution with the extract added. The hydro-alcoholic solution should get better results than just using water or alcohol, and any remaining insoluble constituents can be filtered out. Also, no preservative is necessary as any solution with an alcohol content above 25% is preserved. This tincture can be added to cream, but not in high concentrations as the ethanol will curdle the emulsion.

For most uses we recommend Arbutin instead.

Ellagic acid

 

Each tube is enough for about 18 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 2% concentration (10 g in 540 mL cream), so we recommend using 2.2 grams in 4 oz of cream.

Bearberry does not dissolve easily. The best solvent is a 35% ethanol in water solution with the extract added. The hydro-alcoholic solution should get better results than just using water or alcohol, and any remaining insoluble constituents can be filtered out. Also, no preservative is necessary as any solution with an alcohol content above 25% is preserved. This tincture can be added to cream, but not in high concentrations as the ethanol will curdle the emulsion. Because alcohol dries the skin, we don't really recommend this method.

For most uses we recommend Arbutin instead. Arbutin will dissolve more easily without the use of an ethanol solution.
