Kojic acid is known as the gold standard of skin-whitening products—especially in the Philippines. But if you’re skincare junkies like we are, you should know that it can do more than just whiten your skin. It’ll make you G-L-O-W. Not only can the ingredient protect your skin against free radicals, it can also prevent signs of premature aging. (Wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin—we’re looking at you!)
It’s no wonder local brand Be Organic Bath & Body has a skincare line devoted to this powerhouse ingredient. Try incorporating one or all 5 of their kojic-laced products into you routine. Every one of ‘em promises to strengthen your skin’s foundation, stimulate collagen, and lighten dark spots. In short, you are guaranteed instant, glowy gratification. Scroll!
