Kojic Acid Dipalmitate Powder (KAD) is a diesterified derivative of Kojic Acid. It is considered to be superior to Kojic Acid in its whitening ability and is more stable than Kojic Acid in cosmetic formulations.
By inhibiting tyrosinase activity, Kojic Acid dipalmitate is capable of suppressing skin pigmentation. Its ability to suppress melanin formation makes it effective in whitening dark skin, or areas of dark skin. Its effects have been boosted when used in combination with glucosamine derivatives like N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG).
Cosmetic Benefits of Kojic Acid dipalmitate Powder:
- Skin-lightening effect by inhibiting melanin formation
- Does not complex with metal ions and will not change color
- Light and heat stable
- Compatible with most cosmetic ingredients.
