Hey there,

Kojic acid is a natural source of whitening. Many cusmetic lines developed by dermatologists contain kojic in low percentage for evening skin tone. As for whitening, kojic acid, along w/ mulberry, arbutin, licorice, etc. are well known to be safe and natural depigmenting agents. Good luck.

Wow are you really sure about that because I have been reading articles saying its dangerous and it can cause skin cancer especially if you don't avoid the sun as it damages or peels off a certain layer of your skin which is needed to protect you from the sun well I hope your right thankxxx

Isn't it funny, when we talk about lightening, suddenly everyone starts shouting 'skin cancer'. All that happens is that your skin has become lighter, and is therefore more susceptible to the suns rays. If not properly protected you risk sunburn and associated problems such as skin cancer. Using a lightening cream containing the correct amount of hydroquinone or kojic acid does not mean you will automatically get skin cancer.

Yep. Technically every whitening/lightening agent increases your chance of getting skin cancer IF (big 'if') you do not properly protect against UV rays as a "paler person" must. Normally, for people that either tan easily or are naturally darker, melanin protects your skin against the sun. This is why you get dark instead of burns.

All right.. I have to go wash my face... :p

At last! Common sense. It's OK to lighten your skin as long as you do so [carefully]. But once you have, you MUST wear sun protection all the time.

Hi - I do not think you should be giving advice on this topic. You seem to have very woolly conception of skin disorders and whitening agents.

About Kojic Acid -
Kojic acid is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice, for use in the manufacturing of sake, the Japanese rice wine. It is a mild inhibitor of the formation of pigment in plant and animal tissues, and is used in food and cosmetics to preserve or change colours of substances.
It is used on cut fruits to prevent oxidative browning, in seafood to preserve pink and red colours, and in cosmetics to lighten skin.
Kojic acid also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
It is also used in skin diseases like melasma.
