What it is
Kojic Dipalmitate is made with kojic acid and palmitic acid.
What it does
Kojic Dipalmitate has good antioxidant properties. In addition, it also moisturizes skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Because of its kojic acid component, it is used in skin lightening products. Kojic Acid can lighten discolorations and dark spots, but because it is highly unstable and quickly loses its efficacy when exposed to light and air, companies often decide to substitute it with Kojic Dipalmitate. However, there are no scientific studies so far that prove Kojic Dipalmitate to be as effective as Kojic Acid.
Kojic Dipalmitate can cause irritations.
