    somewhere between 0% and 100%, I should think

    Arbuting releases hydroquinone (banned in cosmetics in Europe) and there has been/is debate as to whether its use as a skin lightener should continue to be permitted.

    I would not consider using arbutin in a new cosmetic.

    @johnb both forms of arbutin have recently been reviewed by the SCCS, and in both cases their verdict up to a given level has been positive; with that in mind, I can’t imagine it’ll be banned any time soon

    Given that you’ve already told us that you’re a beginner, the only correct answer is none. This is not the sort of product that should ever be made by a beginner.

    Alpha Arbutin up to 2%

    Kojic Acid up to 2%, but generally 1% because it can cause allergic reactions/contact dermatitis in some people

    But, as BobZ suggested, if you’re not experienced, probably not good ingredients for you to be fooling around with.

    I think that it belongs to the cost of product. Alpha Arbutin up to 2%. You can mix it as the same as my formula
