: Kojic acid is often used topically to treat a number of different cosmetic conditions. Its been approved for use in cosmetic products in concentrations of 1 percent or less. Its most often used as a skin lightening agent.
Kojic acid can be found in a number of different types of cosmetic products, including powders, serums, creams, cleansers, and soaps. Powders should be mixed with water or lotion, depending on the product instructions. Some products, like soaps and cleansers, are meant to be washed off immediately. Others, like creams and serums, are designed to be left on and absorbed into the skin. (However, kojic acid overall has relatively poor absorption rates below the surface of the skin.)
Some products like face masks are designed to be used only on occasion. Creams and cleansers may be used daily.
Products containing kojic acid are most commonly used on the face and hands, but can be used on all non-sensitive areas of the body.
