General: Kojic acid is a by-product of the rice fermentation process needed to make sake. Sake brewers discovered its skin-lightening properties when their hands turned a youthful cream color after repeated, continued exposure.

Skin Benefits: Kojic acid inhibits the formation of pigment in plant and animal tissues. Acts as depigmentation agent that reduces age spots and establishes an even skin tone on all skin types. Adds a lightening, anti-aging boost to Ultra-C Radiance Serum.
