Doc, I want to ask, arbutin is a whitening agent that is commonly used. Can these substances cause viruses to enter?

Hello Maudi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Arbutin is a whitening agent that is safe to use, usually serves to overcome skin hyperpigmentation. Arbutin is often found in some skin care products to whiten, treat black spots, and dull skin.
The entry of the virus into the body can cause infection if the immune system is not strong enough to overcome it. The entry of the virus into the body, as in the respiratory tract generally occurs when touching the nose or mouth without washing hands before touching the contaminated object. Therefore wash your hands with soap and running water before touching your face, for example, when applying your whitening cream that contains arbutin or other facial products.
That's all, hope it helps.
