Alpha-arbutin is a glycoside of hydroquinone, and like hydroquinone, alpha-arbutin is one of the few ingredients scientifcally proven in published journals to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation spots. "I was inspired by skin plumping power of water creams, but wanted to make something special. I formulated Tidal to be a brightening treatment infused into a water cream, for a cutting-edge answer to both alternative signs of aging, like hyperpigmentation, and the quest for the ultimate, all skin-types moisturizer. Papaya enzymes smooth the skin and gently exfoliate for immediate improvement in texture." Sunday Riley This product is cruelty-free.
