How kojic acid soap works to lighten skin used to be a mystery but now is being explained by modern science. Kojic acid is simply a product of fermented malt for Japanese wine. Now, the ingredient is an A-lister in the cosmetic world. Read on and know the secrets.
What does kojic acid soap do for the skin?
Kojic acid soap burrows deep within the pores. For starters. Moreover, it also has a powerhouse cast of ingredients such as vitamin A, lipoic acid, vitamin C, E, AHA glycerine and grape-seed extract. The ingredients combine to burrow deep down into the pores, break down dead skin cells and remove it from the epidermal layer. It removes dirt, blackheads and whiteheads. Kojic acid changes the pH of the skin making it a bit acidic – which is actually beneficial and proper for the skin. Blackheads, whiteheads and dirt contribute to cellular stress, making skin look dull, dark and old. It exfoliates dead skin cells. Dead skin cells are just one of the reasons why skin looks dull and dark. When dead skin cells are removed, new skin is exposed underneath. New skin cells are whiter, softer and healthier. It stimulates cellular turnover. When dead skin cells are removed, live cells are stimulated to increase cellular turnover thus producing favourable new skin cells. It inhibits the production of melanin.
What does kojic acid soap do for the skin to make it whiter? Kojic acid primarily inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase which is integral in the synthesis of melanin. Without melanin, skin becomes lighter. It concentrates on more pigmented areas. Kojic focuses on inhibiting melanin and melanin thrives in pigmented areas. It nourishes the skin. Kojic has vitamin A, C, and E to provide the skin of its needed nutrients. It whitens skin in a few months. Melanin largely contributes to dark skin. With melanin gone, you can expect lighter skin in as little as two weeks to a month. It removes blemishes. Due to its high glycerine content, pimples, acne breakouts and blemishes are easily removed. It gives skin a youthful glow. Finally, kojic gives skin a youthful glow because of processes it does to improve overall skin condition.

• The more thoroughly a soap bar can dry out between uses, the longer it will last. Make sure to use a soap saver or soap dish so that your soap can dry out between uses. Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water or let the shower pour down on it. For soap saver trays and pouches, please visit our shop.
• Softer water usually makes your soap last longer because the soap lathers more quickly so you don't have to rub it as much.
• A person who uses a washcloth, sea sponge, or a different lathering aid will use less soap than one who rubs the soap directly over the skin.
Yes we do. PLEASE contact me if you have ANY questions or need a certain product made without certain ingredients & I will do my best to accommodate you.
