Kojic acid

{{ i.item.name }}

Product Description

Kojic acid is a chelation agent produced by fungi. It’s used to prevent oxidative browning and to preserve color, along with treating skin diseases like melisma. In its crystal form, along with quercetin, it possesses cytotoxic activity to human cervical cancer cells and colon cancer cells. It seems to also be useful for protective effects from radiation-induced damages on mammalian cells. Kojic acid also inhibits catecholase activity of tyrosinase. When exposed to ferric ions it forms a bright red complex.
