What is it?

Kojic Acid acts on the melanocytes to inhibit melanin synthesis: it blocks the transformation of L-tyrosine (an amino acid that is a melanin precursor) suppressing free tyrosinase, primarily through the chelation of copper ions.

What is it for?

By inhibiting melanin synthesis, Kojic Acid acts as a powerful skin whitening agent, as it helps gradually lighten dark spots on the skin, reducing the cell damage caused by excessive exposure to the sun.
