Pigmentation is a major concern for many skin types especially Indian or Asian as melanin production is high which is not exactly a bad thing. Since we live in the tropics and get a lot more of the sun than the rest of the world, melanin protects our skin from the harsh UV rays. It does this by producing more sebum or oil onto the skin’s surface. The problem occurs when the extra oil is exposed to the sun forming a pigmented layer on our skin.

The more your skin is exposed, the more melanin-producing cells get worked up to protect your skin, resulting in excess sebum production. This excess also causes skin pores to get clogged instantly when combined with bacteria and free radicals causing acne which further leads to post-acne blemishes. 

A good and zinc included sunblock is the best way to protect the skin from being affected by sun exposure. As for existing blemishes, there is a very effective and hardworking ingredient developed in the skincare industry to treat pigmentation - Kojic Acid.

4 Reasons Why Kojic Acid Is Your Skin’s BFF!

How Does The Derma Co. Kojic Acid Cream Stand Out?

The Derma Co. Kojic Acid Cream is a daily-use pigmentation corrector that is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of key types of skin discoloration, including hard-to-treat forms of post-acne marks and stubborn brown patches. It works by inhibiting tyrosinase – an enzyme that produces melanin which is the main pigment of the skin. Formulated with Vitamin C, 2% Kojic Acid, and Tetrahydrocurcumin, this formulation brightens skin and evens skin tone in as early as 3 weeks.

How Does it Work?

The science behind The Derma Co. Kojic Acid Cream is four simple and clinically proven ingredients that work hard at addressing uneven skin tone concerns like dark spots, blemishes, pigmentation, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Kojic Acid comes from different fungi and organic materials (for eg.; fermented rice) and is well-known for its skin-whitening qualities. It has anti-aging effects, lightens dark spots, treats melasma, and even decreases the appearance of blemished scars. It minimizes the recurrence of discoloration and stubborn brown patches. With continued use, it lightens dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin C has an immense brightening effect, treats pigmentation, and evens skin tone. It is safe and highly effective in stopping melanin biosynthesis, neutralizing free radicals, and preventing inflammatory processes. It also regulates pigmentation levels, leaving skin evenly toned and protected. It provides visible anti-aging benefits, brightens skin, and helps reverse oxidative stress by repairing & immunizing the skin’s protective barrier.

Glycolic Acid exfoliates dead skin cells, resurfacing dull and uneven skin for a smoother, brighter, and more even-looking complexion. It is water-soluble and therefore effectively removes dead skin cells and excess oil from the top layer to clear out and shrink pores, revealing new, smooth, and even-toned skin.

Turmeric is an antioxidant and skin whitening agent that has proven time and time again with its skin lightening benefits. Tetrahydrocurcumin is derived from turmeric and neutralizes free radicals. It also contains antibacterial and healing properties that keep acne at bay, repairs skin cells, and improves complexion over time.

Who is it Suitable For?

The Derma Co. Kojic Acid Cream is a perfect solution for both men & women experiencing discoloration, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. From normal to sensitive, it is suitable for all skin types.
