Kojic Acid was discovered in Japan in 1989. It is a natural product derived from a mushroom. It has been successfully used to lighten pigment spots and skin discoloration.
Kojic Acid prevents the production of melanin in the skin. It penetrates the upper skin layers so that it stops the formation of pigment. This allows the upper layer of skin to lighten and at the same time the deeper layers remain discolored.
Usually, the effect produced by kojic acid lasts as long as the product is being used. I.e. if you stop using Kojic Acid, the cell might regain its activity. If Kojic Acid is used regularly, you should see the improvements in a matter of 4-6 weeks. For some people this period can be longer or shorter, depending on their particular skin type.
