PulsarMeds stocks Kojic Acid 2% Skin Lightening cream as a 25 gram tube. Kojic acid is a natural ingredient found in fermenting rice and fungi and has been found to inhibit the production of melanin.
It lightens both age spots and scarring and has some antimicrobial properties. As a skin lightener, kojic acid is not as effective as hydroquinone but is a good product to use if you prefer more natural skin lightening. Most products available in the UK contain 1% kojic acid but the cream PulsarMeds supplies contains 2%.
Like hydroquinone it does not offer a permanent solution and the effects will wear off within a month of stopping treatment. Kojic acid does not need a prescription in the UK but in India, in order to ship it abroad, we must enclose a prescription for you.
