Kojic acid evens out your skin tone by inhibiting melanin production. Melanin is the pigment that brings colour to your skin, eyes, and hair. An overproduction of melanin results in dark spots and uneven patchy skin.
Your body produces melanin with the assistance of an amino acid called tyrosine. Kojic acid actually prevents the function of tyrosine, which, results in inhibiting melanin production.
As we all know, too much sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and patches on your skin. Applying a treatment with kojic acid can significantly help to fade these the spots and patches, giving you a clear, rsdiant and even complexion.
Kojic Acid can also provide an overall lightening effect on your skin and can successfully treat melasma, wrinkles and damaged skin.
