Dermastir Kojic Acid Ampoules have a multiple action, as they reduce the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines, and treat hyperpigmentation and dark spots at the same time.
Kojic acid (5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymenthyl)-4-pyrone is used in skin care formulations to lighten the skin, like another agent, hydroquinone. However, while hydroquinone works by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase by acting as a melanocyte cytotoxic inhibitor and by increasing the cytotoxicity of melanocytes (melanin - producing cells), kojic acid lightens the skin solely by suppressing tyrcsinase activity (by inhibiting catecholase activity of tyrosinase) in a non-traditional fashion. Kojic acid is revered worldwide for its skin-lightening properties and is commonly used in topical formulations to treat dark spots.
KOJIC ACID (10%): Melanin is a naturally occurring pigment in the body that gives the eyes, hair, and skin their color. An amino acid called tyrosine is needed to support the production of melanin. Kojic acid works by blocking tyrosine formation, which, in turn, prevents melanin production, for a whitening action.
