Kojic Acid Dipalmitate
Derived from fungi and other organic sources, Kojic acid is widely used as a regulator of excessive skin pigmentation and natural treatment for melasma, and is one of the three most powerful recognized natural melasma treatment ingredients along with Arbutin and Licorice Root Extract.
It operates by focusing on the root of the pigmentation source by inhibiting the production of melanin. Recognized as a tyrosinase inhibitor, it counters the antioxidant properties of the enzyme tyrosinase, which reacts with the amino acid called tyrosine to produce the pigment melanin, responsible for melisma, freckles, sunspots and other types of skin pigmentation.
By inhibiting the production of melanin, Kojic acid can reverse excessive darkening of the skin.
