Kojic cream is mainly used for skin lightening purpose. Along with skin lightening the cream limits the effects of free radicals in damaging the skin cells. Because of its anti-bacterial properties, the application of the cream will result in killing and distracting the process of bacteria on the skin. Daily use of the product will also result in exfoliating the skin and thereby expose a shiny, new, and lightened skin. The active ingredient in the product is Kojic and Ascorbic acid which helps in treating hyperpigmentation on the skin. It is also an antioxidant and has antibacterial properties too. Hyperpigmentation occurs when areas of the skin develop too much melanin. When the cream is applied in the skin, it works on the melanocytes and thereby interfering with the production of melanin. It also works as an antioxidant by counteracting the effects of particles called free radicals which can cause oxidative damage to the skin cells. This helps in preventing signs of aging. Use of the cream interferes with the processes which bacteria cells perform to thrive and reproduce. Thus, it acts as an antibacterial agent and kills those bacteria.
