Kojic Acid Powder (Cosmetic Grade)
About: Kojic acid is derived from different types of fungi (Aspergillus oryzae in particular) or through the fermentation processes of Japanese rice wine or soy sauce. Thus, it is a 'nature derived' skin brightening compound.
Uses: Kojic acid is used for treating hyperpigmentation (sun spots, age spots, and dark spots) and melasma. Kojic acid is sometimes used in the food industry as a natural preservative. The main use of Kojic acid powder, however, is in personal care and cosmetic industry. It can be found in a number of different types of cosmetic products, including serums, creams, cleansers, lotions and soaps.
