Kojic Acid was discovered in Japan by Saito in 1907. It derives from different types of fungi, most commonly Japanese rice wine, also known as sake. However, it can also be used as a byproduct from soy sauce.
Kojic Acid is made up of an oxygen containing skeleton with several important reaction centres enabling oxidation and reduction, alkylation and acylation, and finally chelation. As a consequence of these reactions the formation of tyrosine is limited, which is an amino acid that is needed to produce melanin. Melanin is what gives our skin it's colour, the tone of which is determined by different pigments.
It is an active skin lightening ingredient and has been used for centuries in skin whitening practices. Today you can find Kojic Acid in an assortment of different skin whitening products including soaps, creams, lotions, and serums.
