Kojic Acid is a modern skin care ingredient which functions primarily as a skin-lightening agent. When applied to skin in concentrated amounts, the acid work on the melanocytes in the skin, interfering with the production of melanin. This neutralizes the skin tone and diminishes the appearance of sun damage, melasma, solar lentigines and hyperpigmentation.
How does Kojic Acid work?
The active ingredient inhibits the process of pigmentation. It is a powerful antioxidant that also prevents the formation of hyperpigmentation. Clinical studies has proved that Kojic Acid combined with Glycolic Acid gives results comparable to those of Hydroquionone.
