Kojic acid is fungus for your face, as it is a natural product of fungi!
Kojic acid is a tyrosinase inhibitor, meaning that it stops tyrosinase (an enzyme that tells the skin to create melanin) in its tracks, making it super useful for age spots, post-inflammatory pigmentation and other forms of pigment.
