Like the rest of our products, our Kojic Acid Bricks have no chemical ingredients that are prevalent in many skin lightening products that do damage over time at the cost of seeing faster results. Our soap, if used as directed will greatly enhance the health of any skin type in both the short and long term. This is due to our simple formula. which includes three plant based ingredients and a naturally occurring antioxidant found in the human body. Their benefits and effectiveness are well-documented and backed by a great amount of evidence. Here is a breakdown of some of the ingredients and their effect on skin lightening.
Kojic acid: Kojic acid is extracted from specific mushrooms first discovered in Japan. Its benefits on the skin and specifically skin lightening and toning have been detailed extensively. Kojic acid blocks a very important protein that the skin requires to produce melanin, the primary pigment or color of the skin. So by blocking this protein from making melanin, kojic acid puts a stop to skin pigmentation, which with consistent use can aid in skin lightening.
Niacin: Niacin is a dietary supplement that when used topically boosts the water content in the skin This is good for acne along with overall skin health. As a skin lightening agent, niacin effectively reduces areas of random pigmentation and age spots. Because of its strong lightening proficiency and its soothing nature on the skin, niacinamide is a first-rate solution to pigmentation control. Applying Niacin topically also has several benefits on aging skin including enhanced barrier function; enhanced appearance of photo aged facial skin (including texture, hyper pigmentation, redness, and wrinkles) and reduced sebum production.
Turmeric powder: Turmeric is an antioxidant and a spice in food. Its greatest strength is its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits, making it perfect for acne and scars. When absorbed into the skin it automatically begins a cleansing function by removing toxins from the body. The result is a clean and healthy skin organ that now will perform better and more efficiently and that means a well-regulated melanin production in the body. And this also means that any dark spots, uneven skin patches and acne scars can be reduced greatly due to turmeric’s cleansing nature from inside the skin. Turmeric works very well in reducing the appearance of dark spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Papaya fruit: Papaya has become the number one ingredient in skin lightening products because of an enzyme in the fruit, especially in the papaya peel, called papain, that breaks down certain proteins in the skin. For this reason, it is a main ingredient in meat tenderizers. Similarly, when papaya is present in a soap, the papain dissolves the dead skin cells on the surface of the face, making it an excellent exfoliant that sheds old skin cells for newer, healthier skin ones. With regular use, a papaya soap could fade the appearance of scars over time and also slightly lighten dark spots and freckles.
Those are the four primary ingredients. Each have their own benefits on their own, but together, the chances of noticable results are high. We have seen people using the soap to drastic results. We hope this helped you understand the benefits and value of achieving skin goals naturally and in a healthy way.
