Benefits of Kojic Acid in Skincare
Natural Skin Lightening - Ultraviolet (UV) light from years of sun exposure speeds up the production of melanin, causing the melanin to become clumped and produced in high concentrations. Kojic Acid fades non-normal pigmentation such as sunspots and age spots and prevents the formation of freckles and skin pigmentation after sunburn.
Skin Brightening - Kojic Acid exfoliates and evens out your skin tone, diminishing the appearance of scars and causing your dull skin to look healthier and more vibrant.
Gentle but Powerful - The majority of skin lightening products on the market contain corrosive ingredients like hydroquinone, mercury, or uncured lye to effectively "bleach" the skin. Kojic Acid is a natural ingredient.
