When people hear “Kojiesan”, intense whitening almost always come to mind. However, that’s not the only contribution of the said brand to our beauty regimen. Kojic acid is a product of fermentation after malting rice, popularly used in manufacturing sake or Japanese rice wine. It’s not solely for skin-lightening, though! Kojic acid I also said to contain antimicrobial properties which help treat acne and lighten scars and that’s exactly what Kojiesan’s new range of products are targeting to address through its new Zero Pigment Light formula. Bye bye to dark spots, age spots, scars, melasma, and hyperpigmentation for a lighter and even skin tone!
To be honest, even though I’m happy with my skin color, I’ve also used Kojiesan for years after sunblock disasters and after I’ve developed scars due to a motorcycle accident. Even though there isn’t any immediate effect, I can confidently say that it has helped me feel more comfortable with my skin again over time. Since I also have eczema, easily dries out so it’s good to know the Kojiesan has also improved their products by including a HydroMoist formula for hydration and moisturization. Here’s a list of their new kojic acid innovations worth checking out:
KOJIESAN SKIN LIGHTENING HYDROMOIST SOAP
This newest variant is especially made for people with dry skin as it helps keep our body well-moisturized and hydrated for up to 24 hours. That’s lightening and smoothening effects in one soap! It gently cleanses and helps protect the skin’s external layers, helping us feel cool and refreshed after every bath.
KOJIESAN SKIN LIGHTENING BODY WASH WITH HYDROMOIST
For those who prefer using a body wash, Kojiesan’s Skin Lightening Body Wash with Hydromoist also has a similar effect with the soap – deeply nourishing and hydrating the skin for up to 24 hours, but it comes in liquid form. It’s dermatologically tested and paraben free, in case you need assurance that it’s safe.
KOJIESAN SKIN LIGHTENING CLASSIC SOAP
The classic soap will not be left out, though! With Zero Pigment Light – Kojiesan’s new formula to achieve an even complexion, going “all the way light” for people who prefer a whiter skin is possible despite the presence of hyperpigementation.
KOJIESAN SKIN LIGHTENING BODY LOTION WITH HYDROMOIST
After using the HydroMoist soap or body wash, users can further seal in moisture by using the new body lotion. It has a light, non-greasy formula which is easily absorbed by skin so it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. Kojiesan’s lotion helps restore and strengthen the skin barrier and minimize the appearance of rough skin and stretch marks, too.
KOJIESAN SKIN LIGHTENING BODY LOTION SPF25 WITH HYDROMOIST
To protect our skin from the sun and other environmental factors that lead to skin damage, Kojiesan also introduced a body lotion with SPF25 which contains UVA/UVB filters to help protect our skin from getting wrinkles and other signs of skin aging.
All products are dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic, and paraben-free. Kojiesan products – including their beauty wipes that I also use – are being sold at an affordable price (less than Php 300) via their official Lazada page.
I’d recommend these products for people who feel the need to lighten their skin, but at the end of the day, know that we’re beautiful no matter what skin color we have. It’s a matter of knowing what’s best for yourself, what can boost your confidence, and what can make you more comfortable. You command your own definition of beauty!
