Kojic acid exists in koji. It is something people eat and safe to use. In recent years, a large number of patent documents have reported the application of kojic acid in cosmetics.

The results of clinical and application tests show that kojic acid has a strong inhibitory effect on melanogenesis of human skin, and is safe, non-toxic, and will not cause leukoplakia sequelae. Kojic acid and other preparations (such as SOD, placenta extract, amino acid, sunscreen and various plant extracts) have better effects when used in combination.
