Introduction Kojic Acid:
Kojic acid is a chemical produced from different types of fungi. It is also a by-product of fermented soy sauce and rice wine. Kojic acid is sometimes used in the food industry as a natural preservative. One of the main uses of kojic acid, however, is in some health and cosmetic products.
(1) Kojic acid is a kind of specialized inhibitor for melanin. It can prevent the tyrosinase activity through synthesizing with
copper ion in the cells after it enters skin cells. Kojic acid and its derivative has better inhibitory effect on tyrosinase than
any other skin whitening agents. At present it is assigned into various kinds of cosmetics for curing freckles,spots on the skin
of old man,pigmentation and acne.
(2) Kojic acid can also eliminate free radical, strengthen cell activity of cell and keep the food fresh.
(3) Kojic acid also has antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Kojic acid dipalmitate is produced by fermentation and purification of glucose or sucrose under the action of aspergillus enzyme. Its whitening mechanism is to inhibit the activity of tyrosinase and at the same time inhibit the activity of N-hydroxyindole acid (DHICA) oxidase , Blocking the polymerization of ihydroxyindole (DHI), is a rare single whitening agent that can inhibit multiple enzymes at the same time. However, kojic acid has light, heat and metal ion instability, and is not easily absorbed by the skin, so kojic acid derivatives came into being. Researchers have developed many kojic acid derivatives to improve the performance of
kojic acid. Kojic acid derivatives not only have the same whitening mechanism as kojic acid, but also have stronger performance than kojic acid.
