    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...

    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.
