Fermented Alpha-Arbutin


Alpha-Arbutin . . .

is a pH balanced skin lightening face + body bar.  Made with fermented rice water + fresh papaya, along with other skin brightening ingredients, Alpha Arbutin will help you achieve an even skin tone + radiant complexion.

Formulated in my fermenting kitchen, Alpha-Arbutin is 100% handmade. @ J. Lexi, we never dress up + embellish pre-made soap bases.  Our proprietary Blemish Blend for Skin Lightening ingredients (like Skin White Herb) were hand-picked and combined to ensure the best even tone + skin loving bar. 

@ J. Lexi, we control the entire soap-making process from start to finish (including fermentation) to make sure that our holistic, handmade face + body bars are formulated to be conditioning. To further ensure a gentle + skin loving bar, Alpha-Arbutin has cured for 6 months.

Vegan approved.

 Fermented Rice Water is rich in antioxidants, minerals, B vitamins, vitamin E, and traces of pitera, a substance produced during the fermentation process. ‘Pitera’ has grown in popularity recently, and is touted as the anti-aging elixir due to its ability to promote cell regeneration, and help skin stay young and beautiful.

 Apha Arbutin acts quickly in lightening the skin + helps reduce the tanning that occurs after exposure to ultraviolet rays.

 Vitamin B3 contains Niacinamide, is anti-inflammatory, useful in minimizing acne outbreaks + the signs of aging skin (like fine lines), hyper-pigmentation, has anti-wrinkle properties  + helps  stimulate collagen synthesis.

 Allantoin produces desirable effects by promoting healthy skin, cleanses away necrotic (dead skin) tissue, speeding up the growth of new, healthy tissue, stimulates new + healthy tissue growth and helps reproduce skin cells rapidly.

 Unrefined Cocoa Butter helps treat dry skin + acne scars, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, prevent skin damage + stretch marks and helps the skin’s elasticity + treats psoriasis, eczema, dry or chapped skin and dermatitis.

 Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that may help reduce lines + wrinkles, promote healing + aid in the development of collagen.

 Bio-Fermented Papaya helps minimize blemishes, dark spots, evens skin tone + brings a glow to your face; firms skin, is a natural exfoliator; a good source of vitamin A; contains papain which breaks down inactive proteins + removes dead skin cells. Bio-fermentation ensures the antioxidants in the Papaya stay intact, so you receive ALL the nutritional benefits of Papaya.

 Raw Sugar is processed from the initial pressing of the pure cane; is a natural exfoliant containing trace amounts of minerals + vitamins; does not clog pores; helps eliminate blemishes + restores balance to skin’s oils and contains glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, that is crucial for maintaining healthy skin. The natural glycolic acid in sugar not only helps condition + moisturize skin but protects it from toxins. Since the sugar we use is raw + unrefined, its producers claim it contains more nutrients than processed sugars.

Avoid getting in eyes.

To properly care for your soap + extend it's shelf life, dry between uses on a natural soap saver or draining soap dish.  Do not let the soap sit in water.

Glycerin + Moist Soap . . .

Due to a high content of natural humectants (like glycerin, sugar, honey, etc.), a quality conditioning bar of handmade soap will often “sweat” in humid weather.  Humectants draw “moisture” from the air onto itself.  In skin care “moisture” is a good thing!  If your soap gets a little damp, it’s OK to use; it’s just the glycerin + other humectants doing their job.  When the weather clears the soap will dry + return to normal.  Keep unused soap in a dry place, like a drawer.
