There are a number of products available in the market that can do this but these contain chemical compounds that, with overuse, can damage our skin. So it is important that we select a natural ingredient which can give us better results without the side effects . One such ingredient is Bearberry.
What are Bearberries?
Bearberries or Uva Ursi is a berry that grows on an evergreen shrub in parts of North America, Europe, and Asia. The bright red colored berries are round in shape. These Bearberries are edible and have incredible health benefits for us. The fruit gets its name from the fact that it is a favorite fruit of grizzly and black bears, hence the latin name ‘Uva Ursi’ as well.
Bearberry plant contains a range of phytochemicals which includes gallic acid. Berries of this plant contain arbutin that has astringent and antimicrobial properties. There are many other benefits of Bearberries when consumed orally but when it is applied topically there are some distinctive benefits.
Why are Bearberries good for your Skin?
As mentioned earlier, Bearberries are an excellent source of natural arbutin. The natural compound arbutin is well-known among skincare enthusiasts to give clear, blemish-free skin. It is a natural alternative to hydroquinone that gives similar results but without the side-effects.
Arbutin inhibits the tyrosinase activity. Tyrosinase is an enzyme responsible for the production of melanin which gives color to our skin. When the melanin is overproduced, our skin becomes darker leading to hyperpigmentation. Arbutin in Bearberries bring a halt to tyrosinase activity and visibly lighten our skin. It is especially important for reducing blemishes and dark spots.
To effectively extract all these benefits that Bearberries have to offer us, Bee Elite Essentials has used it in its formulation-based products that bring forth all its potent skincare qualities along with other efficient and strong ingredients.
