How exactly does Kojic acid work on our skin?
Here’s the science behind how kojic acid lightens our skin. Melanin is a pigment that gives colour to our eyes, hair and skin. The production of melanin occurs naturally in our bodies with the support of an amino acid called tyrosine. So kojic acid stops the production of tyrosine which eventually inhibits the production of melanin causing lightening of the skin.
