Kojic Soap

Have you heard about Kojic Soap? I heard much about it several years ago but I didn't know where to get it. And then while browsing the net, I saw a picture of kojic soap again and decided to buy even when I spent more because I ordered overseas. I was so excited when I received the parcel so I tried it and wow~ it's really good. I can see some good results after using for a few times. It really whitens the skin. I really recommend it if you want to remove freckles, sun spots and if you wanna have whiter skin.

What is a Kojic Soap?
Kojic acid soap is used as a skin lightening agent for people who may have sun spots, freckles and other forms of pigmentation on their face, hands and neck. There are several types of Kojic acid soap brands available, and the formulation can be used on its own or as part of a skin lightening facial treatment. Significance Kojic acid skincare products have been used for decades in the Philippines and the Far East for their skin lightening benefits. The definition of beauty for cultures outside the Western world consists of fair, even toned skin, so many women resort to using skin lightening products, such as Kojic acid soap, to achieve a lighter skin tone.

Kojic acid skincare products are made with natural ingredients and work primarily as a deep exfoliating treatment. History Kojic acid was derived from a mushroom in 1989 and has since been used in several skincare and anti-aging products as a natural ingredient for lightening skin pigmentation. Kojic acid soaps are typically made with a combination of natural skin lightening fruit acid and papaya extract that work by softening the skin and creating a luminous, healthy glow.

Function Kojic acid soap is primarily an exfoliating skin product that slowly gets rid of pigmentation and dark spots by buffing away the damaged skin cells. The papaya enzymes in Kojic acid soaps help to break down the top layer of skin cells and peel away damaged skin, revealing the fresh and healthy cells underneath. This soap can be used as a regular bath soap all over the body, as a shaving foam for the face and neck, or just on the face to even out the skin tone.

Benefits Using Kojic acid soap on a regular basis may help reduce the appearance of age spots, eliminate or reduce freckles, reduce or eliminate skin discoloration from pregnancy and strengthen cell activity. The soap is used by many Japanese men and women as part of their regular facial regimen so that the skin stays soft and vibrant. Kojic acid also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Warnings Kojic acid soap can be irritating to sensitive skin types and may cause redness, itchiness, inflammation and tenderness. It’s important to use only a small amount on the arms as a trial to make sure the skin does not undergo an adverse reaction.

Extra moisturizer and skin soothing serums may be necessary after using a Kojic acid soap, as these will replenish lost moisture and help the skin heal faster. People who use Kojic acid soap regularly need to avoid using skincare products that contain salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy or retinol, because these can aggravate the skin. I personally use this product! Guaranteed safe and effective! Original!

Hi! :)

I use Kojic soap too because I want to even out my skin tone. Just like you, I think it's effective as well. It can be drying on the skin though so I use lotions or moisturizers afterwards. I also use it alternately with a moisturizing soap. :D

I use a commercially available Kojic soap. I don't know if it has the same concentration as the one you used. The brand is Kojie-san and it's available in supermarkets and drugstores here in the Philippines. :)
