LPD Kojic Acid encapsulates kojic acid. Such active is made from several different types of fungi. It’s also a by-product when certain foods ferment, including Japanese sake, soy sauce, and rice wine.
Kojic acid inhibits and prevents the formation of tyrosine, which is an amino acid that’s needed to produce melanin. Melanin is the pigment that affects hair, skin, and eye color. Because it inhibits the production of melanin, kojic acid can have a lightening effect.
Kojic acid is often used topically to treat a number of different cosmetic conditions. It’s been approved for use in cosmetic products in concentrations of 1 percent or less. It’s most often used as a skin-lightening agent.
In our in-vivo studies and according to the obtained and observed results, it is observed that encapsulated LPDs Kojic acid has a better result if compared with a non-encapsulated active at the same concentration.
