Kojic Acid and Glutathione Soap 140g
You likely already know about glycolic and salicylic acids in your beauty routine, but there's another somewhat under-the-radar acid that deserves some time in the skincare spotlight—particularly if your goal is a brighter, more even complexion. We're talking about kojic acid, a naturally-derived ingredient. It comes from mushrooms and is excellent at fading hyperpigmentation and discoloration AKA dark spots.
It works well both on its own and when paired with other lightening ingredients, not to mention also acts as an antioxidant. Inhibits an enzyme necessary in the production of melanin, helping to fade dark spots and discoloration. It also delivers some antioxidant protection.
Anyone seeking to improve the look of discoloration caused by sun damage, melasma, and/or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that occurs after a blemish should use kojic acid. Studies have shown that kojic acid works well with and enhances the effects of glycolic acid and hydroquinone.
Proceed with caution and start using any products that contain kojic acid and other actives gradually, giving your skin some time to acclimate.
