Uva ursi extract

Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi L.) has a long medicinal history. Already in the sixteenth century, the famous School of Medicine of Montpellier claimed its use as a diuretic, antiseptic, anti nephritic pains, "the grit and mucus in the urine". Herbal medicine uses the leaves for its richness in arbutoside, a strong antiseptic, urinary and bowel which acts both on colibacteria, primarily responsible for urinary tract infections, as on intestinal germs. On the other hand, it facilitates the renal clearance of urea and contains tannins with anti-inflammatory effect. Bearberry increases the volume of urine, what is really essential for the treatment of urinary tract infections and prevention of relapses.

Nowadays one of its main applications is in cosmetics as depigmenting of the skin by the ability of hydroquinones (arbutin) to inhibit melanin synthesis.

It is used in the cosmeceutical industry, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals, as a diuretic, for urinary tract inflammations, and facial cleanser.
